Video Overview


The Mini Apprentice 1.2M originally had two components to the charging system: a 12V power supply (EFLA109) and the actual charger (HBZ1003B). You can look up these part numbers on horizonhobby.com to identify which of the two you need. Another option is to get an all-in-one power supply and charger, and either of these will work (SPMXC1070 or DYNC2030) for your airplane's battery. Make sure to set the battery type to 'LiPo', and the charge rate to '1A' or lower.

A charger is included.

At this time, you do not have to register this model aircraft with the FAA. You as the user may be required to register. www.knowbeforeyoufly.org

You might be referring to the clevis. Those are included in the pushrod set; HBZ3105.

Yes, we have found a 2200mAh battery works well in the Mini Apprentice, and offers a nice extension to flight time.
