The X-VERT™ VTOL gives you all the fun and versatility of a Vertical Take Off and Landing aircraft without the need for complex mechanics or fancy programming. It also makes the transition between multirotor and airplane flight as easy as flipping a switch. You can also take your flight experience to a whole different level using the optional and patent-pending FPV camera and servo-driven mechanism that transition automatically when the X-VERT does (FPV gear sold separately).

Sleek and Simple Design
A lot of VTOL aircraft require complex mechanisms like tilting wings and motors to achieve vertical and forward flight. The X-VERT park flyer's simple, tail-sitter design and SAFE® stabilization technology allow it to fly like an airplane or a multirotor using nothing more than differential thrust and its elevons. The simplicity of this design also makes the lightweight, EPO airframe remarkably durable.

Wide, Pilot-Friendly Flight Envelope
The light wing loading and efficient aerodynamics inherent in the aircraft's design play a big role in making it easy to fly, especially in airplane mode. Fast or slow, pilots will enjoy smooth, predictable response at any speed.

SAFE® Flight Control Software Makes it Easy
At the heart of it all is exclusive SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) flight control software that has been expertly tuned so almost any RC pilot can experience the fun of VTOL flight.

Automated Transition
Making the transition between multirotor and airplane flight is as simple as flipping a switch. The flight controller will automatically transition the aircraft from one to the other using SAFE technology to stabilize everything so you can relax and have fun.

3 Flight Modes
The advanced flight control software features three flight modes that, along with the model's light wing loading and efficient aerodynamics, give you a wide range of performance.

  • Multirotor Stability Mode: This mode allows you to take off and land vertically like a multirotor aircraft. It's also great for indoor flight. In this mode the aircraft's tail remains pointed at the ground while the flight controller uses a combination of differential thrust and elevons to control pitch, bank and rotation. Pitch and bank angles are limited, and SAFE technology will work to keep the model in a stable hover whenever you release the sticks.
  • Airplane Stability Mode: In this mode the aircraft responds to pitch, roll and yaw commands like a typical airplane. SAFE technology limits pitch and bank angles so new pilots can experience airplane flight without accidentally rolling upside down or losing control. It will also return the wings to level whenever the sticks are released.
  • Airplane Acro Mode with AS3X® Technology: In Airplane Acro Mode the model becomes an agile, fully aerobatic flying wing. There are no angle limits or self-leveling. The large, long-throw elevons will allow you to perform incredibly tight turns as well as a wide range of aggressive aerobatic maneuvers. And because you have the forward thrust of two brushless motors working for you, there is plenty of speed and power to spare. You can even use the differential thrust of the motors for yaw control to perform wild spinning and tumbling maneuvers.

As you fly, AS3X technology works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. It feels completely natural, too. It won't interfere with or limit your control in any way. You simply enjoy a sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you're flying a much bigger aircraft.

Customize Your Trim Scheme
The included decal sheet gives you multiple trim scheme themes to choose from - a military theme with bomb and rocket decals, and different sport themes with vibrant colors. You can even personalize your trim scheme by mixing and matching decals from different themes.

FPV Ready
You can also take your flight experience to a whole different level using the optional and patent-pending FPV camera and servo-driven mechanism that transition automatically when the X-VERT does (FPV gear sold separately).

Super-Simple Transmitter Setup
The model comes equipped with a Spektrum receiver that is built into the flight controller. It can be flown with any full-range, 6+ channel DSMX/DSM2 aircraft transmitter. No complex programming or setup is required. All you have to do is assign switches for the flight mode/transition changes and throttle arming.

It is too bad to fly it!
The telecommunication between plane and transmitter gets failed after it starts flies.
FC of my plane has a problem.
At first flight it fell and got crashed at a wing tip(aileron part).

Please kindly give me a reply!

There are tons of things I could complain about, but honestly where can you get this kind of excitement and challenge for under $50 in this hobby? It's asking a lot and the x-vert is pretty sweet. I had a hard time figuring out how to bind it/ setup the controls, but after it was all done I realized I had done many many things the hard way... Read the manual and don't overthink anything and you'll probably be just fine. I bound mine with a Spectrum DX6e and haven't have and issued except I'm not totally sure how to setup the throttle cut.

Flying in multi-rotor mode so far has been easy even in fairly strong winds. I am looking forward to trying stability mode when I have more favorable weather.

Bottom line is I think this is a quality product from E-flite and would recommend it for the price.
