E-flite Convergence VTOL 650mm (25.6") Wingspan - PNP
25.6" Wingspan E-flite Convergence VTOL BNF Basic - Plug-N-Play - (PNP) - EFL11075
The Fly Guys at Motion RC are salivating over this new offering from E-flite. A VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing) RC aircraft at a reasonable price point. This is our first VTOL offering and we think it looks like an absolute blast and can't wait to get our hands on it!
The intel we have so far on the E-flite Convergence VTOL is that it is extremely easy to fly thanks to the exclusive flight control software. It is quite speedy at 75mph in forward flight mode. Takeoffs and landings do need to be in VTOL mode due to the large size of the nacelle propellers which could break in belly landings. Metal gear servos were added for the nacelles which is a nice touch and appropriate in our opinion. This PNP version requires your own full-range radio, receiver and 3 Cell 11.1V 2200 - 3000 mAh LiPo battery.
Flight times can last up to 8 minutes. This VTOL comes with a huge fun factor and will create an exciting ride for any intermediate to advanced pilot. Get ready for something unique and thrilling to add to your hangar and be the talk of your flying club!

This plane is a great flyer. Not for beginners. To fly this plane you must have quadcopter experience. The olnly problem I had was on one of my landing It broke the servo arm and there's no replace part. I was lucky to have one in my box.
I love this plane!! I was hesitant to purchase based on some of the feedback I was reading. I bit the bullet and am pleasantly surprised. I was very cautious on my first flights. I spent 10 minutes or so practicing hovering in Stability mode, piece of cake as long as it is not windy. I finally got the nerve to flip the switch for flight mode and it was awesome. After several flights in Stability mode, I finally flipped the switch for Acro mode and it was more Awesome! Flys great, no bad habits and it was perfectly trimmed out of the box. I haven't attempted to hover in Acro mode yet. No rush on that. If you want to feel a new rush, I recommend this plane.
A small omission
Nice looking plane but a few things they fail to mention. If you buy the pnp version and use your own receiver you must buy 6 extensions to plug your receiver into the control board. Fine until you figure out that they have to be a male to male extension, and as short as possible. Not much room in there. At $5.00 bucks apiece it gets a little pricy. The quality of the plane is good though.
I finally got my pre-ordered Convergence the other day after only 3months of waiting. Boy was it worth the wait! I even ordered a new DX8 Gen 2 radio to replace my ageing DX7. I programmed the new radio as per the instructions. It wasn`t too difficult. The first flight was tricopter only. Everything went so well, that on the second flight I decided to go for broke and transition to airplane mode. It worked! When it transitions, it speeds up noticibly. but returns to original throttle setting once the transition is done. It is very docile and easy to fly in airplane mode. The transition back to tricopter is even easier. It just slows down and becomes a tricopter again. take-offs and landings are very easy. I think it will be a while before I try it not in stability mode, though. 2 other guys in the club got. theirs, but were too chicken to try airplane mode. There`s not a lot of room in the battery compartment, so I`m just useing a 2200. One word of warning- do NOT fly it in reverse at full speed! Igot away with it the first 2 flights, but the third time it went out of control and crashed. All it did was knock the nose off and I fixed it at the field and flew again immediately. No change in how it flew. I`m super satisfied with this model! Looking forward to many hours of fun with this model both at the field and other places.I`m glad I waited!
