The Ares Advantage Optim 300 CP is the first RC helicopter in its size and class to assist pilots looking to progress from sport flying to 3D flight. The Aegis Natural Flight Progression (NFP) technology in the Optim 300 CP combines a state-of-the-art 6-axis sensor system with groundbreaking control software to create a RC heli training tool unlike any other. Pilots new to CP (collective pitch) can first start by using the advanced 6-axis Flight Stabilization System (FSS) on the Optim 300 CP to fly basic sport maneuvers. At the first sign of trouble, let go of the sticks and the 300 CP will right itself. When a pilot is ready to test their 3D flight skills, the flip of a switch puts them in 3-axis agility mode. Pair this with the high-performance capabilities of the 300 CP heli and a pilot will be able to execute almost any 3D flight maneuver imaginable! Flipping the switch back to the 6-axis Flight Stabilization System (FSS) automatically stabilizes the heli and allows a pilot to regain control and avoid a crash!
Learning to fly inverted is the first big step to 3D flight and the Optim 300 CP makes taking the step to inverted flight easier than ever. The transmitter features a switch that, when turned on while in 6-axis FSS mode, automatically flips the Optim to stable inverted flight. While in stable inverted flight, a pilot can familiarize themselves with how the heli’s responds differently to control inputs, with the assurance of knowing that all they need to do if they lose control is let go of the sticks and the Natural Flight Progression (NFP) technology will assist them back into a stable inverted hover. And when a pilot is ready to return to flying right side up again, it’s as easy as another flip of the switch!
