Big fun comes in a big size with the Sportsman S+ 2.4GHz 4CH RTF RC Airplane. This behemoth boasts a whopping wingspan of 54.6 inches. With its 480 brushless motor and included 3S 1300mAh battery, you'll have the power and battery life needed to enjoy an awesome day of flight. Although it may appear like a lot to handle, the Sportsman S+ is built with several features that make it accessible for the beginner flier. With its AutoLand function, you get minimal to no pilot input needed for landing. If you think you might lose control of your RC, you can use the Panic Recovery mode to auto assist you back into control. You'll always be able to keep the Sportsman flying where you want to with its Virtual Fence function, creating an invisible barrier that keeps the Airplane within comfortable flying range. With everything you need right in the box, get the Sportsman S+ 2.4GHz 4CH RTF RC Airplane before this awesome RC flies away.

  • Full-Range Spektrum™ DX4E 4-Channel 2.4GHz DSMX® Transmitter Included
  • Everything You Need To Fly In One Box


  • When activated, Autoland returns the Sportsman S+ safely to the ground with little to no pilot input. When flying in rougher conditions, you can provide some directional guidance and let the system do the rest to execute a safe landing.
  • Landing has always been one of the biggest concerns for new pilots, but not anymore. Designed to be as intuitive as possible, the HobbyZone® Sportsman®: S+ comes loaded with SAFE® Plus technology which is equipped with advanced attitude awareness and a GPS system so pilots can leave their hesitancy on the runway, even if it’s their first time flying. Like the beautiful full-scale Glasair Sportsman, the Sportsman S+ is a natural in the sky with the freedom of four-channel control and a powerful brushless motor that comes pre-installed. If a pilot is skittish about the landing, no problem. In the right conditions, the Sportsman S+ will perform the landing with no help from the pilot.

Holding Pattern:

  • Push a button, and the Sportsman S+ will automatically fly to a point near its takeoff location and circle at an altitude of approximately 120 feet. Once the command is cancelled, you have full control of the aircraft and can continue to fly.

Virtual Fence:

  • You can choose between a circular setting with 360-degree fence or a rectangular setting with a fence that prevents the Sportsman S+ from flying behind you. Both fences will prevent the aircraft from flying too far away. When the Sportsman S+ encounters the Virtual Fence boundary, the control system will automatically activate Holding Pattern and return the aircraft to near its takeoff location and circle until you cancel the command.
