Flying has never been easier than with HobbyZone’s ready-to-fly Firebird IIST. Using just two sticks—the left for throttle and the right for steering—you can be up and flying solo your very first time out of the box. It’s that easy.

But that’s not all. HobbyZone’s exclusive Smart-Trak flight control software actually analyzes and adjusts control inputs to keep the first-time flyer from over-controlling and getting into a bad situation—one that might lead to a crash with any other airplane. However, with Smart-Trak, the result is a smooth, successful first flight, with none of the struggle and all of the fun. And once you get the hang of flying in Smart-Trak’s Standard Mode, which keeps the Firebird IIST turning smoothly and responsively without turning too steep, unlock Expert Mode and enjoy extreme maneuverability that’s great for racing around pylons or performing zooming spiral dives.

The Firebird IIST is ready to fly in minutes and comes with everything you need for less than $90, including batteries and an instructional video CD. Everyone’s gotta start somewhere. Start smart. Start with the Firebird IIST RTF from HobbyZone.
