Between a plane and and a multirotor, Vtol (Vertical Take-Off Landing) machine starts to become popular especially thanks to new flight controllers managing now correctly transition between vertical to horizontal positions.
Here is the new XK “Sky Wizzard F-500”: https://www.banggood.com/XK-SKY-WIZARD-F500-VTOL-Vertical-Takeoff-And-Landing-3D6G-FPV-EPP-RC-Airplane-RTF-p-1210336.html
This new XK model (deluxe devision of WLtoys) includes its 3D6G flight controller with three specific flight mode: one more for indoors application where the machine is vertical and is controller more like a quadcopter, the second more for outdoors and the machine is more similar to a plane and the last one so-called “stunt mode”.
The machine is equiped of two brushless motors and is powered by a 2S LiPo. As for most XK models, the associated radio protocol is compatible with the Futaba S-FHSS (Jumper compatible too). I would like to test such kind of machine…I never flew one… Can be interesting.

– The aircraft has multiple flight modes
1) indoor vertical flight, the aircraft can flying like a four-axis aircraft or helicopters, vertical flight, hover flight, forward, backward, left and right side fly, spin flight.
2) outdoor mode. The aircraft takes off vertically, one key switch, the aircraft will climb 3-5 meters and chang to horizontal flight automatically (6G self-stabilizing mode), just like a fixed-wing aircraft to control the aircraft climb down and turn around, suitable for beginners.
3) outdoor stunt mode, after The plane flew horizontally in the air, switching 3D / 6G key, the aircraft will get into 3D stunt mode (3D lock mode), Easy to make Somersaulting, Rolling, Death spiral, and other stunts.
– The front three points landing gear, can be used for the special case of glide landing, or outdoor glide takeoff, directly get into the fixed wing mode.
– Customers can choose 720P HD, 2.4G WIFI or 5.8G VTX, the camera angle is adjustable, vertical shooting and 30 degrees before and after shooting can be carried out.
