This ready to fly brushless 4 channel trainer plane includes gyro stabilization that allows very easy flight, even on windy days. Should be a great FPV flier. Available RTF (with transmitter) here . Available PNP (install/provide your own receiver/transmitter/battery) here .

Pros
– Stabilized 750mm wingspan plane which should serve as a good trainer for those wishing to transition to 4 channel flight.
– Brushless 1806 2450KV motor.
– Gyro stabilized controller provides very smooth flight, even on breezy days. Three selectable positions on the controller allow stabilized flight, sttabilized flight with increased bank/pitch angles, and stabilization off flight.
– Includes 7.4V 850mah battery (red JST connector).
– Lightweight plane at 200 grams (without battery).

Cons
– Ad suggests that this plane comes with GPS. Although a future version may be released with such, it currently does not have this feature (although it does have 1 key return).
– 1 key return should not be depended on as a return to home feature. Although this feature is common on toy drones, applying it to planes may not be wise. 1 key return requires the pilot to maintain a position in the sky directly down the direction that the aircraft was pointed at takeoff. A plane is much more difficult to keep in one location than a drone, and may result in flyaways by new pilots if activated.
– I had several reversed controls out of the box. Fortunately this is easily corrected by the transmitter. Unfortunately, the instructions for doing such are printed very last in the user manual. I'm sure that some will skim the manual, and miss this very important instruction.
– Plane is somewhat tail heavy out of the box with the provided battery. You will likely need to add a little weight to the nose (camera, FPV system, bigger battery) to enable smooth flight with the gyros turned off.

  1. Hello Quadcopter 101, greetings from the Caribbean, can you make a review of the jjrc x7p (x7 pro), the one that has a gimbal. thanks for your videos!!!

  2. Nice flying powered glider. It handles the wind very well and the stabilization kept everything steady. I’ve found these pylon motor planes do tend to nose down on launch. See you in the Air!

  3. Man I’m jealous of the spot you go to fly. I did a 7″ drone I went out a little over 2 1/2 miles my battery was going low but man I could go for miles there lol good video I might look into buying this

  4. Hi, good night… wishes you for a great week !!! Great video, thanks for sharing, we move to the next challenge? Regards … What’s new on my channel? A video about a new challenge reached with the Volantex 757-3, I reached 3 km away despite the wind and the unfavorable weather conditions … is little for many Long Range experts, but it was a big step for me .. You are always welcome !!!

  5. Welcome back. The links to the earthquake info serve to let one know that living in the cyclone belt is not the worst of all possible domicile locations. On to this video. Nice to see the reading of the manual first stressed. It will circumvent a lot of the usual uninformed yowls. Only fault that struck me – DO NOT throw away that collection of plastic prop rings. Only 1 prop supplied and no parts available for this yet so you will almost certainly find a use for it in adapting another prop if you are unlucky enough to break yours. You didn’t check fail-safe on this. It’s good anyway unlike on Banggood’s version of the otherwise perfect noob starter 3-channel Volantex V761-1. At least on that the Tx range/plane size means that only a mug should experience a flyaway. Don’t know the range on this but seems good. PNP version has no flight controller/stabilizer unless your receiver etc supplies it. The supplied battery still puts the AUW 10gms over the 250 limit, so replace with a larger unit to correct COG issues. The wing & tail plane on this seem interchangeable with the Volantex Firstar 767-1 (HobbyKing et al) but the fuse is a little different and the drive is quite different.
    2 useful mods .. 1 Put a little hot glue on the 4 corners of the wing join (& tailplane) to stop it becoming sloppy with the usual rough and tumble use. (Easy to nick off if need be.) And 2 .. Add a bit of (angled) flat plastic strip to the nose and landing bump (+ tail bump if desired) to give just that bit more protection from nose ins & gravel rash.
    All in all a pretty good 4-channeller for noobs up-skilling or Old Farts on the gradual decline.
    PS. re the admission about the A800 – the top of the Bell Curve passeth? 😉
