Cool New V-TOL Coming Soon

Our friends at BuddyRC posted this video showing us the new ZMO prototype first looks and test footage. It's cool of them to share this footage as normally you wouldn't get to see anything at this stage of development. I think the plane looks great and is a nice size that should be capable of long flight times and great distances. The wings will be easily removable and the whole thing will fit back into a travel case. There's room up front for your FPV system along with a GoPro for recording.

There's no word yet on pricing or availability, but it is something to look forward to hopefully this year. What do you guys think of the ZMO?

Looks awesome! I've never bought a FPV wing because they seem to be tricky to launch. This solves that along with having the ability to hover.

Only way to make it better would be a micro version.

UNSCHEDULED LANDING!
+2 on the mini/micro version! a better spec’d XK X450 or JJRC M02 format.

This is exactly what I've been looking for.

Been keeping an eye out for this and a large Helicopter. someone from Omp hinted to me they were releasing a 5** size. Should be interesting. Sux having to wait so long but I guess they put a lot of R&D/testing into their products before releasing to ensure supreme quality. Xmas is just around the corner. I better start saving my pennies. lol
