VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing) RC models are usually a mixed bag
when it comes to performance. If they are stable, their speed and
agility is often lackluster. If they are nimble, pilots have to work
harder to transition between hovering and airplane flight. The
Convergence™ VTOL park flyer changes all that. Its unique
design and exclusive flight control software give you the best of both
agility and stability while making the transition between multirotor
and airplane flight so smooth and predictable, you will feel right at
home your first time on the sticks.
Sleek and Simple
Unlike complex VTOL aircraft that rotate the entire wing and require as
many as four motors to achieve vertical and forward flight, the
Convergence™ park flyer uses a simple, yet sleek, delta-wing
design with three brushless motors - two rotating motors on the wing
and a fixed-position motor in the tail.
In multirotor flight the wing-mounted motors rotate up into the
vertical position to provide lift and flight control along with the
motor in the tail. In airplane flight, the wing-mounted motors rotate
down into the horizontal position and the model's elevons take over
pitch and bank control. Yaw control in airplane flight is provided by
differential thrust from the wing-mounted motors.
Exclusive Flight Control
Software Makes it Easy
At the heart of it all is flight control software that has been
expertly tuned by designer, Mike McConville, so almost any RC pilot can
experience the fun of VTOL flight.
Making the transition between multirotor and airplane flight is as
simple as flipping a switch. The flight controller will smoothly rotate
the two wing-mounted motors into the correct flight attitude and
activate the rear motor as needed.
Stability and Acro Flight
These two flight modes give you a wide range of performance for every
phase of flight.
- In multirotor flight, Stability Mode will limit pitch and
bank angles and work to keep the model level when you release the
sticks. This allows you to take off and land like a pro, even if you've
never flown a multirotor before. In airplane flight, it will limit
pitch and bank angles and automatically return the wings to level when
the sticks are released.
- Stability Mode automatically engages during the transition
between multirotor and airplane flight. It seamlessly maintains
self-leveling and angle limits from one phase of flight to the other,
making this the easiest RC VTOL experience you will find anywhere.
- In Acro Mode there are no angle limits or self-leveling in
any phase of flight. During multirotor flight, the model will behave
like a conventional multirotor that pitches and banks in whatever
direction you want it to fly. It can flip and roll like other
- In airplane flight, Acro Mode lets you perform a wide range
of aerobatic maneuvers. And because you have the forward thrust of two
brushless motors working for you, there is plenty of speed and power to
spare. You can even use the differential thrust of the motors to
perform unique spinning and tumbling maneuvers.
The model is designed to accommodate several of the most popular FPV
camera systems. There is a camera bay under the nose and a place to
mount the video transmitter in the rear of the aircraft. Both locations
are easy to access so installation takes just a few minutes.
