Shipping Surcharge

Shipping surcharges will be incurred when the total shipping weight of the cart exceeds 20lbs.

Ground Shipping Items

Some RC Planet's products can only be transported under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only, and cannot be shipped outside of the US. These products include:

  • Non-Water Based Paint and Paint Thinner
  • Petroleum-Based Oil
  • Aerosol Type Products
  • Traction Compounds
  • Tire and Body Cleaners
  • Epoxy / Accelerators / Debonder

The US Postal Service will not transport ORM-D items, and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

Batteries

For All Shipments: Special labeling requirements are needed to safely transport any Lithium products. Certain large Lithium Batteries will always require HazMat handling and will only ship via Fedex. If you would like to know more about FedEx and the safety precautions taken when transporting Lithium Batteries, please refer to the FedEx guidelines.

International Shipments: Lithium Batteries are regulated as HAZMAT (Hazardous Material) products and can be dangerous if not packaged properly for transportation. In smaller quantities, Lithium Batteries can be shipped via DHL without applying a HAZMAT fee. If you'd like to ship more than 2 Lithium Batteries, a HAZMAT fee will be applied for transportation. Please note that DHL only allows transportation of HAZMAT / Dangerous Goods to specific countries, some of which have limited service areas.

The US Postal Service prohibits international mailing of Lithium Batteries, as well as electronic devices that contain Lithium Batteries. These new regulations also prohibit shipments to or from Army, Fleet, and Diplomatic Post Offices. Because of these regulations, no US Postal Service shipping options will be available during checkout.

Domestic Shipments: Both FedEx and the US Postal Service are available as shipping carriers for most Lithium Batteries and electronic devices containing Lithium Batteries. Please note that the US Postal Service has a limit of three batteries per shipment; you can refer to the Domestic Mail Manual for further information.

Fuel

Fuel is classified as a "flammable" liquid. RC Planet can transport limited quantities of flammable liquid under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only. For larger quantities of fuel (Example: case quantities), it must be transported under HAZMAT. Transporting as HAZMAT means that the amount of fuel is considered hazardous and will be subject to shipping by Ground services, including a HAZMAT fee for the special transportation. Fuel cannot ship outside of the US.

Please note that the US Postal Service does not transport Fuel and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

Rocket Motors

Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets are classified as »Toy Propellant Devices« and can only be transported through Surface Mail with the US Postal Service's Parcel Post. FedEx does not transport Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets. Please note that FedEx will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

International Shipping Restriction Batteries:

Due to circumstances and regulations that are beyond RC Planet's control, batteries cannot ship outside of the US when using the United States Postal Service as the shipping provider. However, RC Planet can ship batteries internationally using DHL International, but the quantity cannot exceed a total of 2 batteries with a capacity of 5000mah maximum. Unfortunately we are currently unable to ship this item to APO/FPO addresses and apologize for the inconvenience.

Overview

More information about HobbyZone Sportsman S+ RTF (Gen 2) HBZ8900

This is the HobbyZone Sportsman S+ RTF Gen 2 airplane. Designed to be as intuitive as possible, the HobbyZone Sportsman S+ comes with Horizon Hobby's exclusive SAFE Plus technology that provides the same kind of self-leveling stability and GPS guidance used in advanced camera drones that cost $1,000 or more. It also features the freedom of four-channel control and a powerful brushless motor. If you're a little skittish about landings, it has a helpful AutoLand function that uses GPS guidance to put the aircraft on a stabilized landing approach so you can enjoy landing success on your very first flight.


 


Features Included with the HobbyZone Sportsman S+

AutoLand
When activated, the aircraft will initiate a stabilized landing pattern and approach, aiming at a touchdown point near where it took off. During this approach, you can make adjustments to the flight path to avoid obstacles and assist with as much of the landing as you want. As your skills progress and you gain more confidence, you can take over more of the control inputs, eventually learning to land without any assistance from the automated system at all.

Virtual Fence
Using GPS information, the model's SAFE Plus system will create an invisible boundary that keeps the aircraft from flying too far away. When the aircraft reaches this boundary, it will automatically reverse course and fly back in the general direction of the takeoff point. Immediately after it completes the course reversal, it will waggle the wings to indicate you once again have control.

Holding Pattern
This handy SAFE Plus feature lets you essentially "pause" a flight by putting the aircraft in a GPS-guided holding pattern. When activated, the model will automatically return to a point near its takeoff location and circle at an altitude of approximately 120 feet until you resume control. It's a great way to safely hand the controls to friend or regain visual contact if you ever lose sight of the model.

Flight Envelope Protection
As with other SAFE-equipped models, the Sportsman S+ trainer gives you progressive flight modes with varying levels of envelope protection and stability. These allow you to advance at your own pace with fewer mishaps and more successes.

Beginner Mode: Limited Pitch and bank angles. Panic Recovery Mode activates when sticks are released, returning the aircraft to level flight.
Intermediate Mode: More freedom in pitch and bank. Panic Recovery Mode automatically returns the aircraft to level flight when the aircraft descends below 30 feet above ground level and the sticks are released.
Experienced Mode: No pitch and roll limits or Panic Recovery Mode. You are in total control. Panic Recovery Mode can be activated by switching to Beginner Mode and releasing the sticks.

AS3X® Technology
In addition to the advantages of SAFE Plus technology, you also get the locked-in feeling of AS3X technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind gusts and turbulence so the airplane tracks beautifully in every flight mode, at any speed.

Powerful, Efficient Brushless Motor
The model is equipped with a brushless motor that is quieter, more powerful and will last longer than a conventional brushed motor with a gear box. It's also very efficient, so you can enjoy more flying time per charge.

Optional Rough
Field Landing Gear Included- In addition to the standard landing gear with wheel pants, optional rough-field landing gear with larger wheels is included. The rough-field gear is perfect for operating off grass, dirt and other surfaces that might be too rugged for the standard landing gear.

Easy to Calibrate
Because SAFE Plus technology makes extensive use of GPS and compass data, periodic calibration of these sensors is required. Don't worry. The HobbyZone development team has made the calibration procedure super-simple too. The entire process takes no more than a minute or two and doesn't require any special tools or experience.
