I think this is pretty much the same as a lot of the other ones that are kind of similar to the volantix plane so i’m, not going to go over every little detail here. If you want to see what some of the details are, i’ll link some previous videos down in the description you can check it out, but basically this is pretty similar. You have your beginner mode switch here. Beginner intermediate and advanced modes very windy today so i’m going to probably stick to beginner or intermediate. You have a return to home button here, so basically, whatever way you’re pointing or where you launch the plane in it will turn around and come back. The same way. This kind of works – sometimes sometimes it doesn’t work, and you got your trim buttons here. Uh ford, double a batteries um. This is the three battery version. The extra batteries are still one stored inside the transmitter and another one inside the um, the body of the plane. So if you can’t find them that’s where they are they’re not actually inside the rest of the box, for some other reason brushed motor uh, we got ailerons which are on the inside here, which is kind of interested in the outside elevator and rudder. I bet they’re on the inside here because of a better turning radius and a little bit of assembly needed a screw here on top two for the tail assembly and then four on the bottom here for the struts and the wheels and then one for the each Side of the struts here now pretty straightforward and uh very windy we’ll see how it goes.
I wish the wind would stop, but it never stops every day. It’S windy here, all right. So an on off switch here on the bottom we’ll turn that on set it down on the ground and launch in that direction. Turn on the transmitter looks like it’s bound and let’s. See here looks like the rudder is a lot of trim. It looks like it’s more to the right, then the left so it’s going to have a tendency to turn right. That’S your either run elevator looks like it’s all working, okay and there’s, no stabilization until you hit the throttle. So now we’ve got stabilization and we’re going to launch in beginner mode. All right Applause so wants to go left. Interestingly, it looks like i trimmed it way too much Applause. There we go yeah, it looked like the trim was doing anything when i was doing it before i hit the throttle so apparently that the trim took effect after i hit the throttle. Something good to know looks like we go straight now. Some people come in huh yeah, it seems pretty stable. You do have to coordinate your turns with the rudder and ailerons together. All right we’ll go right. It goes right. Come on that wind’s kind of swirling, around it’s, just shifted directions now it’s coming from the other side, you can see here, i’m, basically hovering there Music and he wants to keep climbing. I don’t know: oh that’s stalled. There let’s see if there’s any damage Applause.
That seems fine, Music, yeah there’s a lot of turbulence, as you can probably tell if the air speed drop too much it’ll it’ll, dive and stall on you. Oh this wind is pretty bad how slow it goes in the wind here. Let’S check that out. It’S crawling Applause and downwind, it really hurts it goes in a hurry now, even in beginner mods, it has enough rates. As long as you coordinate your turns and turn the rudder and ailerons together. It’Ll turn quick enough. Okay! Oh this is nuts. Oh, the wind’s really bad. Now, oh boy it’s, shifting around too now it’s coming from this direction, so you can tell Applause. Oh Applause almost stalled Music, oh Applause! This is this is really it’s really. This is really bad. I would not recommend flying in this kind of wind. I mean i’m having i’m struggling myself. It doesn’t it doesn’t, look like it, but it’s. This is pretty tough Music. All right turn it back into the wind all right see if i can land it here, yeah. Basically it’s, like a short short, take off a landing type of plane in the wind, but yeah. This flies pretty. Similarly, to a lot of the other uh volantix planes and the eastern plains that i’ve flown before in the channel, so i’ll link those down in the video description. If you want to see what they fly in a calmer day, i uh a lot of these.
They they fly. They have been recording these on very windy days, it’s very rare that there’s a calm day, i’ll, try and link one down in the description and uh note it’s. If what if the day was calm, if you want to see how it flies on a calm day, it’ll fly much better than this, of course, it’ll be very under control and and not as twitchy um more predictable. All that so yeah.
