  • AeroScout 1.1m RTF

    I am a raw beginner, I have two fights under my belt without incident using safe mode.
    I would be thankful for any flying tips.
    Has anyone flown the AeroScout 1.1 m, would like to here your comments.
    Thanks,
    William E. Burrows Jr.

    I am a rookie rc pilot as well and own the AEROSCOUT I love this plane ✈️ and couldn’t be happier some days I just practice taxing and short takeoff altitude of about 30 feet and then landing about 3 feet up cut the throttle and flair I have made 3 flights about 10 minutes in length and even though one day was quite windy the scout held its own and flys great I choose 0 level for take offs and landings and the high rate for sharper turns but generally I fly 0/1 until I get more comfortable I have a few mishaps but white duct tape apply evenly has no affect on flying at all I am wanting to upgrade one size motor higher so I can mount a camera 🎥 and record my flights

      I have the Esky Eagle, which is the same plane without the SAFE and AS3X. Nice easy flyer and very strong landing gear. Back ordered a Scout BNF since I wanted one that I could be "daring" with because the personalization I did to the Eagle has made it special because of a friend. Could have ordered another Eagle, but the Scout is pre-decorated and doesn't involve a slow boat from China. I only with it came PNP because I have problems with SAFE/AS3X.

        What kind of modifications did you make to your Eagle? I am getting the Eflight Apprentice S 15e tomorrow I am so excited, afterwards my next goal is the Real Flight 8 Simulator and a Specktrum 6 Transmitter

          I learned on the original Flyzone Sensei, but it was after EXTENSIVE practice on a Real Flight simulator. As far as the Eagle, no mechanical changes, just cosmetic. The stickers that came with it were just too boring:

              What you might want to look into instead of a GoPro like camera is a key fob camera, unless you are considering going FPV. There small and inexpensive, and just need a little Velcro to attach them.

                Got mine and assembled it, haven't flown it yet. At first glance the differences are that the Scout has a two bladed prop VS. the Eagle's three. And there's a slight difference in the contour of the wing.

                    Welcome to squawk William! I commend you for starting the hobby and getting right up with an aircraft. It certainly isn't easy to start in that way. But 2 things I can think of that are important for a beginner is trimming your plane and landing. When you are flying, take your aircraft to a higher than normal height and let go of the sticks and see if your aircraft wants to go up/down/left/right/or bank either way. If so, use the trim buttons on your aircraft to get it flying dead level. When I was new at this I really had no idea what trim was for and was just constantly holding my aircraft staight which made it much harder (I just assumed everyone was doing that). When your plane is trimmed properly, you can let go of the sticks and it will fly straight and true and makes for a much more enjoyable flying experience. Then just working on your landings. Flying is easy, landings is where things can go awry fast,.

                    Have fun!

                        But would what you'r suggesting work with an AS3X aircraft?

                          I think any Safe Receiver with AS3X I thought AS3X mainly helps auto stabilize the aircraft in high winds

                            Flew the AeroScout today, Expert setting. Performance was on a par with the Eagle. Very pleased with it.
