Mind of its own

This vtol wing is really quirky and took me some time to know how to respond to its sometimes odd behavior. It really is a blast to fly but will go into odd girations in hover mode. Usually just giving it more throttle will correct its odd behavior. Very fast and very stable in regular airple mode....lands easy and takes a lot of abuse. You need calm conditions to land it vertically or you can actually bring it down and catch it by the tail. It grows on you and it is really fun after getting used to some of its odd behavior. Transitions from vertical to regular flight flawlessly. In spite of some of the odd things I love it and fly it a lot. I would recommend it. But it does have some learning curve.....maybe only worth 4 stars but then I bought a second one.

Buy extra props

I agree with others the directions are poor......I watched You Tube videos to get the hang of it. I love this little wing! On my first one I trashed a motor learning how to fly it......but loved it so much I bought another one. Now I have two flying well. I found that the vertical take off from ground (and landing) does not always work well. If it falls over it will run away and beat the props. I just hold mine by the rudder and let it stabilize and go vertical that way. Otherwise, it's fast, fun and a unique wing. Transition from vertical to 3D and back is flawless. I tried a 3 cell 450 mah battery which seems to not harm it, but probably not advised.........fast! Instead of trying to land on the ground, ( in quad mode) I just bring it down and grab it by the rudder. I gave it five stars....it takes a beating, (Directions would only get 1 star).

Fun Fun Fun

I found the instructions to be very confusing. I was taking off vertical and able to transition to regular flight .....and in flying wing mode (3D) it is very fast! I found I was not going through the right sequence for arming and taking off and thus it kept falling over and beating the props. It takes 2 seconds for the motors to stop after disarming motors. I finally damaged one motor and ordered a replacement. When you get it right it flys awesome. When in 3d mode its really cool to be flying along, then going to V mode and it transitions to fly like a quad. As a flying wing in 3d mode it is very fast and will do some neat tricks. I found video on YouTube that helped me understand how to arm and work all the controls. So, I ordered another one and a motor to replace my burnt one......when you get it right... it's really cool and fun. After you get though the learning curve you'll love it. 4 stars only because of the poor confusing instructions. As far as cheaper extra batteries I used some 2 cell 800 mah and put a piece of soft velcro on to wedge into battery compartment leaving the cover off.....works great.

In spite of the problems of it not always setting up stable I like this very much

Some times when you start it up it goes off on a side flight instead of a good hover. You then need to set it down and re initialize it. I have had to chase it down in the woods a few time because of this.

Well tuned flight controller

Takeoff, hover, transition to forward flight and switch to 3d flight is easy and performs incredibly smoothly. Transition back to hover takes more skill with windy conditions. The gyros will wind up if you hold constant offset to fight the wind however, you can land conventionally in that case. Issues: 1. No source for the flight battery. Current batteries in the market are wider and wont fit. 2. Instructions are very bad 3. Contacting XK is impossible 4. I recieved 2 right wing tips not a left and a right. So I modified one
