Overview

VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing) RC models are usually amixed bag when it comes to performance. If they are stable, their speed andagility is often lackluster. If they are nimble, pilots have to work harder totransition between hovering and airplane flight. The Convergence™ VTOL parkflyer changes all that. Its unique design and exclusive flight control softwaregive you the best of both agility and stability while making the transitionbetween multirotor and airplane flight so smooth and predictable, you will feelright at home your first time on the sticks.

Sleek and Simple

Unlike complex VTOL aircraft that rotate the entire wing and require as many asfour motors to achieve vertical and forward flight, the Convergence park flyeruses a simple, yet sleek, delta-wing design with three brushless motors - tworotating motors on the wing and a fixed-position motor in the tail.

In multirotor flight the wing-mounted motors rotate up into the verticalposition to provide lift and flight control along with the motor in the tail.In airplane flight, the wing-mounted motors rotate down into the horizontalposition and the model's elevons take over pitch and bank control. Yaw controlin airplane flight is provided by differential thrust from the wing-mountedmotors.

Exclusive Flight Control Software Makes it Easy
At the heart of it all is flight control software that has been expertly tunedby designer, Mike McConville, so almost any RC pilot can experience the fun ofVTOL flight.

Automated Transition

Making the transition between multirotor and airplane flight is as simple asflipping a switch. The flight controller will smoothly rotate the twowing-mounted motors into the correct flight attitude and activate the rearmotor as needed.

Stability and Acro Flight Modes

These two flight modes give you a wide range of performance for every phase offlight.

- Stability Mode
In multirotor flight, Stability Mode will limit pitch and bank angles and workto keep the model level when you release the sticks. This allows you to takeoff and land like a pro, even if you've never flown a multirotor before. Inairplane flight, it will limit pitch and bank angles and automatically returnthe wings to level when the sticks are released.

Stability Mode automatically engages during the transition between multirotorand airplane flight. It seamlessly maintains self-leveling and angle limitsfrom one phase of flight to the other, making this the easiest RC VTOLexperience you will find anywhere.

- Acro Mode
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 multirotorthat pitches and banks in whatever direction you want it to fly. It can flipand roll like other multirotors, too.

In airplane flight, Acro Mode lets you perform a wide range of aerobaticmaneuvers. And because you have the forward thrust of two brushless motorsworking for you, there is plenty of speed and power to spare. You can even usethe differential thrust of the motors to perform unique spinning and tumblingmaneuvers.

FPV Ready
The model is designed to accommodate several of the most popular FPV camerasystems. There is a camera bay under the nose and a place to mount the videotransmitter in the rear of the aircraft. Both locations are easy to access soinstallation takes just a few minutes.

Recommended FPV System - All Items Sold Separately
• Spektrum 650TVL CCD FPV Camera NTSC
• Spektrum 25mW 5.8GHz Video Transmitter
• Power Adapter
• Spektrum 4.3-Inch Video Monitor with Headset

Super-Simple Receiver Installation and Transmitter Setup
This Plug-N-Play® version can be flown with any 6+ channel aircrafttransmitter. It gives you the option of using either a conventional receiverwith standard servo connections or a serial receiver. Just connect whateverreceiver you choose to the model's flight controller. No complex transmitterprogramming is required. You use the channel-5 switch for selecting Stabilityor Acro mode and the channel-6 switch to transition between multirotor andairplane flight.
