Flyzone has taken a daring step by introducing the Sensei trainer. The word “trainer” alone made Kurt and Rob pull out the microscope. Is the new Sensei the “next best thing”? Watch and find out!
The market is packed with so-called trainers. Some truly good for beginners, others just really good at taking a new pilot’s money. By the time we finished assembling and flying the Sensei, our understanding of an affordable, stable 58″ trainer was completely re-written.
They got everything right:
- Tough tricycle landing gear
- Big wheels suitable for grass
- Steerable nose wheel
- Easy, fast assembly/dis-assembly
- Long run-times
- Super stable flight characteristics
- Flat stall breaks
- Practically impossible to tip stall
- Massive fun factor with the drop hatch!
No matter what we put the Sensei through, it came out shining and blowing away our expectations. This is THE trainer to beat! More than ever, watch the video review to fully understand all of the benefits and advantages of the Sensei. Remarkable.
The perfect exponentials:
If you have a radio capable of exponentials (expos), you can dial in these settings alone and fore-go the need for dual rates! This will give you incredibly stable flight with the benefit of instant access to full travel (just in case you get in trouble!).
