New: E-flite Convergence VTOL

E-Flite has marketed the sympathetic “tiltrotor / multicopter” VTOL who wants to rewrite the vertical takeoff technology Rc Airplane.

With the intent to eliminate the complex negative variables of these RC planes usually see a mix of performance (if they are stable their speed and agility is often lackluster; if they are agile drivers they must work harder to transition between hovering and flight) of the E-Flite VTOL aims to find a solution to all this.

Its unique design and exclusive flight control software should (the conditional is a must because I have not tried it yet) give the best of both (agility and stability) while transitioning between multicopter and aircraft should be fluid and predictable.

Unlike complex VTOL aircraft that rotate the whole wing and require up to four engines to achieve vertical flight and translated, the VTOL E-flite uses a simple yet elegant design with a delta-wing with three brushless motors – two rotary engines on the wings and an engine in a fixed position in the queue.

In condition multicopter the wing engines rotate on a vertical position to provide vertical thrust while the forward flight is entrusted to the engine at the rear. During the flight traversed the wing motors rotate downwards in a horizontal position and the elevons of the model take the yaw control.

The model has a wingspan of 650mm and a length of 680mm; Fishing 780 grams and requires 3S batteries 2200Mah. And ‘it arranged to mount a camera and electronic transmission for FPV.
