E-flite X-Vert VTOL BNF Electric Airplane / Multirotor Drone (504mm) w/SAFE
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.
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.
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.
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.
