Agree with Rcers here. I think at first glance one might think AS3X is training system, I know I did to some extent, I really think Horizon should rethink their marketing on this. Just my Opinion.

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.

Long post warning....

Here is how Horizon pitches AS3X - to me, in a nutshell they are not saying training in any way. They don't say the word trianing - or even ellude to it.

They use words like:
  • Smooth
  • Expertly-tuned
  • Better in the wind
  • Full control
  • More stability
  • Control authority

Detailed Information
AS3X System-Equipped UMX Airplanes Deliver the Ultimate RC Pilot Experience

The AS3X System delivers breakthrough performance for UMX™ airplanes and the freedom a pilot can use to experience RC flight that's more enjoyable than ever dreamed possible.

The AS3X System for airplanes is an exclusive electronic and setup enhancement that makes it possible for you to experience super-smooth flight performance, yet still have full control authority for the kind of flying you want to perform. The advantage of AS3X technology to the RC pilot is a dream come true.

An industry-first, AS3X technology in UMX airplanes is exciting, because it helps the pilot focus more on the thrill of being the pilot of an expertly-tuned airplane than the workload required to stay in smooth control. No longer will you have to deal intensely with flight complications such as turbulence, torque and tip stalls. All you feel is ultra-smooth control even outdoors in moderate wind, so that you're allowed to experience exhilarating aircraft agility that feels natural and quickly build skills as an RC pilot.

It's all about control. Before AS3X technology, stability and agility were typically limited to a narrow control range, and any attempt to gain more stability meant a sacrifice of agility or vice versa. With AS3X technology, there is no compromise. You get dramatically more control, plus more stability and agility than ever dreamed possible. Whether you're an airplane or helicopter pilot, the comprehensive control AS3X technology offers feels very natural, even in moderate winds, so you always get the best flying experience possible.

AS3X-equipped aircraft will change the way you'll want to fly now and in the future.

There's nothing special you need to do to take advantage of the invigorating control an AS3X System-equipped airplane will offer you. Every airplane equipped with the AS3X System is painstakingly tuned so that you enjoy the locked-in feel and control authority that will help show off your RC pilot skills.

So again - I don't get training system in any of that.

And what is more - I fully agree with the claims they make. For example I fly my little Mig (a sub 80g model) in 15+ MPH winds. That would NOT be possible without AS3X. I don't think the Gee Bee would even fly without it.

and you are right by all acounts rcers however, though I do not see the word training at all either but if you read this paragraph and you are new to the hobby you might think that with this technology you have training tech.

For example words like "all about control", "feels more natural" and "nothing special you need to do to take advantage of the invigorating control"
Again you and I do not see training here but if this tech existed 2 years ago when I was researching my fist plane. I would have thought this was a training aid.

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.
