Firebird Commander 2 RTF Electric

  • Ready to fly plane with optical sensors
  • Features anti-crash technology
  • Recommended for ages 12 and up

Anti-Crash Technology is the most innovative development to ready-to-fly airplanes since HobbyZone began. Optical sensors detect the ground and sky, and then give input that pulls the plane out of a spiral dive that could lead to a crash.

I got this plane for Christmas having never flown a plane before. I am relatively new to the RC scene and had previously only had a truck. This is a whole different beast. The plane is very easy to setup – less than 5 minutes and I was ready to fly (except for the 3 hour battery charge). I never flew a plane before and my first flight was about 5 minutes. Easy take off from throw and plane was easy to maneuver on the way up. At this point, I realized I was in trouble and didn’t know how to land. Winds were a bit stronger than recommended 7 mph so this was a bad combination. I throttled down and caught a little down draft. Anticrash technology didn’t save it from the tree. The wing is pretty easy to break. Tried again and flew for only a minute. The wing is nearly completely destroyed now but it was worth that 5 minute flight. I am addicted now and ready to buy the 11 dollar wing to start again. I have tried to tape the wing but I don’t think that is going to work too well. I highly recommend this for the inexperienced flyer. Very very fun.
