Splash

The Blade Ultra Micro F-27 FPV BNF Basic wing brings the excitement of FPV wing flying in a small size.

The Micro F-27 is made of lightweight Z-Foam. The airframe features impressive durability and built-in AS3X stabilization and SAFE technology for the comfort of envelope protection and self-leveling. The high-output brushless motor accepts 2S Li-Po batteries and the 150mW VTX provides crisp, clear video.. Bind-N-Fly Basic completion level means all you have to do is simply add a 2S 280mAh battery and bind it to a compatible Spektrum transmitter.

Looks like a fun FPV park flyer. The only problem I see is that we will need to wait until August to fly one.

Nice and fun looking wing! But, and it might be just me... $170 is a little high. I would expect a wing like this to be around the $100 range based on what's out there today. Still, looks like a nice little flyer!

Wait... You'd expect a good flying wing, camera, and vid-tx for $100?

Lucky. I ordered today and what's normally a one-day delivery, (I live 40 miles from HH), is now 5 days because they're apparently only in stock in their California warehouse.

Just got mine from my LHS yesterday. 3 flights, and 2 crashes. It's a fun little plane, but I miss the rudder from the original UM F-27. My E-Flite 2s 280mah packs are old and dying also, but I was able to get a few flights in around an FPV course. Only tried two gates, one successfully, one not so much. Did I mention I miss the rudder? It was a little breezy, and the F-27 was visibly getting affected by it.

First impression is that in AS3X mode (mode 2) with the manual settings (70% throw, 30% expo) is too soft and I don't trust SAFE mode, since I rolled into the ground when in mode 0 (modes 0 and 1 being SAFE mode).

I'm working on getting the video uploaded to Youtube, but I'm running into problems with my web-based video editor. I'll post it once I get past the issues.

do you think there is a possibility of adding the old UM F-27 rudder to this model ? I have a complete UM F-27 frame.

I have one, there is no port for the fourth channel, just an x-port that probably does nothing but power. You must add an rx and two servos plus hinging and control horns. I recommend this .5 gram rx

I have one coming tomorrow. Will be using the xport for powering the rx and servos. Will be modding ASAP to get rudders. I need my coordinated turns!
