V-jet full tilt review
on 16 December 2010
When i first got the plane into the air (using the helicopter mode) i have to say it took a bit of getting used to and slight ajustments were needed (all explained in the manual). But once i got used to it i can safely say it is a great piece of kit. The fact that you can take of as a helicopter and then convert it into a plane once in the air (or vice versa) is a great addition. It is also very durable as i have crashed it into the side of my house head on resulting in only minor damage to the nose (i dont recommend doing it though). It is worth putting tape along the leading edges of the wings as well as taping the nose to hold the foam together just incase you scrape it along the floor. Also the front landing gear does not cope well on slightly rough surfaces so again reinforce it with tape as i have done and it copes just fine.
The battery takes a good 45 minutes to charge (from the controller) and gives between 5-10 minutes of flight time. And as with all foam planes it does not cope well in wind and if you plan to fly it inside you will need a very large room....trust me. All in all this is a very good product and will bring you many hours of fun, i would recommend it to anyone.
