XK X520 Brushless VTOL Vertical Takeoff RC Airplane Flight Test Review

0 1,286



This nimble and easy to fly stabilized VTOL RC airplane can make takeoffs and landings both vertically or horizontally. Can thus also fly on breezy days in horizontal mode when vertical takeoffs and landings would be difficult. Find it here https://goo.gl/TCVg8X

Pros
– Large and light weight flying wing with plenty of lift.
– Two 1307 brushless motors can send this skyward vertically like a rocket.
– 6G/3D gyro/accelerometer stabilizer with three settings; vertical stabilization for vertical takeoff and landings, horizontal stabilzation for horizontal flight and horizontal takeoffs and landings, and horizontal 3D mode for acrobatics or normal flying.
– Much better flier in horizontal stabilized mode than the Eachine Mirage 500. X520 includes sharp stabilized banked turns in 6G mode.
– BNF includes 7.4V 950mah 20C LiPo that gives approximately 15 minutes flight time.
– Available in multiple versions of RTF, night versions, and 5G WiFi FPV.

Cons
– Motors run in idle when armed. The propellers can be damaged if the plane flips on its back. Emergency motor shutdown is complicated, requiring simultaneous pressing of two buttons.
– Battery door can be difficult to close.
– Instructions say that it can also do automatic landings. But I could not get that function to work.
