The HobbyZone Apprentice® STOL S 700mm is the most capable, durable and easiest-to-fly ultra-micro trainer yet! Scaled down from the popular Apprentice 1.5m and 1.2m models, it’s perfect for first-time pilots to fly in more places and smaller spaces.


For nearly two decades, multiple versions of the Apprentice® have been the go-to “traditional” trainer of choice for many first-time RC pilots. The HobbyZone® Apprentice STOL S 700mm has been scaled down from the incredibly popular Apprentice 1.5m and 1.2m models, yet has also been optimized to offer STOL capabilities similar to the best-selling E-flite® Timber® series models. Plus, it’s “ultra-micro” sized to be more affordable and convenient for more people to fly in more places and smaller spaces – from yards and parks to sports fields and beyond! The Apprentice STOL S 700mm is equipped with Horizon Hobby's exclusive and innovative SAFE® technology that makes it possible for almost anyone to learn to fly successfully. Beneath its durable exterior, there’s an efficient brushless motor along with a factory-installed ESC, receiver and servos. The RTF version also comes with everything else needed to fly in the box including a Spektrum battery, charger, and an SLT6 controller/transmitter equipped with a USB-C port for direct connection to a PC for easy plug-and-play use of the included trial version of the RealFlight Trainer Edition RC flight simulator!
