X-Vert VTOL // Crashing the socks out of mine! // Tailsitter VTOL


Did not have the intention to do a blog post on this one... but lol... just coming back from the flying field and I crashed the socks out of it and I am both freaking impressed and freaking happy how much fun it was that I just can't hold back and need to do a BP RIGHT NOW!





So it all began when HorizonHobby created a huge hype about a unknow product they were going to do a Apple like Live Keynote on... and it was "just an other plane"... kind of a boomer but well... it was "another VTOL"... but a Tailsitter... hm... nice approach... I actually did not want to buy it... but then a shop I had a discount code had it on preorder and I did order it

Unboxing:
Unboxing // X-Vert // VTOL // HorizonHobby (8 min 58 sec)


Putting decals on:




Loading both the nano-tech 850mAh 25-50C 2S and 0.95Ah 2S 65C graphene lipos:



Maiden & second "garden" flight:
X-Vert // Maiden flight / hover / crash // VTOL // 001 (1 min 2 sec)


X-Vert // first transition // VTOL // HorizonHobby // DX9 (3 min 53 sec)


On the flying field:


X-Vert // crashing the stocks out of it // 003 (0 min 27 sec)


X-Vert // crashing the stocks out of it // 004 // 005 (4 min 7 sec)


X-Vert // crashing the stocks out of it // 005 (5 min 39 sec)


X-Vert // crashing the stocks out of it // 007 // 008 // 009 (5 min 22 sec)


X-Vert // crashing the stocks out of it // 010 // 011 // 012 (6 min 4 sec)


You can see it's a lot of fun and can definitely take a beating... sure it suffered some damage but nothing serious




As you can see I love it

For all those non Spektrum guys out there! There is hope!

I just unboxed the iRangeX MultiProtocolModule for my Taranis and it works nicely with the X-Vert!

Unboxing // iRangeX // MultiProtocol 2.4GHz JR Module (3 min 32 sec)


iRangeX MultiProtocol 2.4GHz Module // X-Vert DSMX 22ms (0 min 42 sec)

It's all about FPV!

When the X-Vert was released, Horizon already announced a FPV tilt mount that would allow for seamless FPV flying in both hover and wing mode. That sure was one big plus for me to go ahead and preorder my X-Vert... now the wait is over and it's available, so I got myself one

Unboxing:
Unboxing // FPV Tilt Mount // X-Vert (3 min 59 sec)


finished build:
X-Vert // FPV Tilt // ready for FPV maiden (1 min 6 sec)


X-Vert FPV Tilt Maiden:
X-Vert // FPV Tilt Maiden (4 min 51 sec)


vTxCam used (instead of the cam and vtx Horizon Hobby is selling with restricted/less channels)
Unboxing // BS2 Micro vTxCam AKK // AIO 3.5g! (5 min 34 sec)
