Probably the most innovative model plane ever produced, Silverlit’s V-Jet has a unique swing wing facility, that allows the whole assembly to fully tilt in flight. Cleverly designed to fly in a conventional manner, then actually transform in the air, and hover like a helicopter for vertical take offs and landings. Swing the wing back to its horizontal position whilst flying, using the 3-channel radio control, to accelerate forward rapidly and resume a normal flight pattern. Silverlit’s sensational V-Jet will taxi on a smooth surface on its tricycle undercarriage, and take off vertically or horizontally upon command. A pair of contra rotating propeller style rotors are positioned on the leading edge of each wing to provide superb stability, with a useful transmitter trim allowing precise control. The attractive V-Jet gift box includes a fully assembled aeroplane supplied ready-to-fly, complete with a pre-installed 3-channel digital proportional radio control system, and an informative flight manual. Suitable for both beginners and enthusiasts, steer the model using differential thrust by simply moving the transmitter joy stick left or right, whilst operating the throttle to climb or descend. Fun to fly outdoors in calm conditions, and made of lightweight flexible foam to withstand the occasional heavy landing. The V-Jet incorporates a powerful lithium polymer battery and will fly for five minutes or more, whilst recharging direct from the transmitter in less than half an hour. The V-Jet is available in two similar colour schemes on 27 MHz bands A or B. Alternative bands A, B or C allow up to three different Silverlit models to be flown together. As colour and frequency varies, we are unable to guarantee which colour product or radio control band you will receive. Requires 8 x AA alkaline batteries (not included).
Its ok, but the heli-function is not so well working (you have to take off from a total plain ground - not grass). Read morePublished 12 months ago by Daniel K. Munch
Bit too fragile so broke quite quickly. Great to fly once airborne, turning very sharp which is good but lead to all sorts of problems! Not for novices.Published on 25 Oct. 2013 by Samantha

I was somewhat dissatisfied with this product. The accessories - that is the wheels etc to be fitted were not of ten basic robust quality and were not easy to fit and not durable. Read morePublished on 1 May 2012 by Wally
("Its first flight")What a good little aircraft and great flyer, but there needs to be no wind what soever, because mine is somewhere over the Irish sea still flying? Read morePublished on 25 April 2012 by Mr. G. Webber
