Here is some extended video of the E-flite X-Vert VTOL plane flying in very windy conditions @ The Field yesterday.

This video was pieced together from footage shot by Ross (Bad Angel)

It was impossible to land vertically due to the strong winds so belly landings were the order of the day.

Both vertical take off & hand launch worked fine and the actual normal mode flight was very stable even in the conditions.

The plane has a Spektrum “SAFE” control board fitted with Vertical, Normal & Agility modes. Agility mode is currently disabled in the controller.

I’ll reinstall the FPV camera & VTX before our next Fly In and get some more onboard footage recorded at the Ground Station.
