Hi there. I m Joe. How can I help you have some serious RC fun today? Is there a product or accessory that I can help you with?
What's the difference between Apprentice BNF and RTF models? Thanks
Joseph C.
RTF - Ready to Fly - Includes all needed to fly.
BNF - Bind and Fly - Same as RTF but requires a Spektrum transmitter.
Got it. Thanks
Joseph C.
You are welcome
Looking for you first plane?
Considering good first plane options. Any other suggestions?
Joseph C.
Either this Apprentice or the Mini Apprentice - http://www.horizonhobby.com/m...
Pros or cons differentiate each?
Joseph C.
Flight characteristics, no real difference except for power
Mini can be used in smaller fields though
Would flight times vary between models?
Joseph C.
They can - But most are in the 8-10 minute range on a trainer
Ok Joseph. You have helped sort out some questions. I will look over the specs of each of your suggestions. Thinking about a Father's Day gift
Joseph C.
Very Nice!! Either one will be great!!
Thanks again!
