A fast, fun flying wing that is quick to build, fast, and inexpensive? The X-1 flying wing arrives as a fully molded EPO airframe kit, which means you can choose whatever motor, battery and electronics package you want!
Building goes quickly as the airframe is 1 piece. Just screw on the plastic cloroplast fins, drop in your servos and fly! It can be ready to go in as little as 2 hours. Being fully molded EPO foam, the model is light weight and super durable. The small size makes the X-1 an ideal model for keeping in the car or taking in a backpack on hikes!
• Almost ready to fly - build the model with your choice of electronics and battery
• Molded EPO Airframe
• Screw-on cloroplast plastic fins
• Large battery/electronics bay - great for a micro FPV setup
• Low parts count, quick to build
• Fast and fun!

I built mine out for speed, 2206/2350KV + 545-645 props. . . another review noted this plane doesn't like overpowered speed and he's 100% correct. Build this one with 1806 motors for a sweet little flyer. Anything more and I feel it gets pretty squirrelly. Build it light, use 5g servos and the lightest RX you can find. Light is the key here. If you need HD video, look at the mini mobius. Mine lifts and flies with it no problem.Two words - JUST FUN! it took me all of 15 minutes to get this from box to flying with FPV. It takes you back to fun flying. The video about the product is spot on, I ran it straight into the ground and it didnt damage anything. Great fun for the price and was able to use a spare multi rotor motor i had laying around.Very small, might fly quite slow with the right setup, I have a funfighter motor and ESC combo and it is crazy fast and twitchy even with a 1600 3S strapped in. Good fun and quite tough.
Super flugeigenschaften sowohl langsam oder auch schnell, ist auch genug platz um alles unterzubringen . Habe ein 3s 1000er akku wrde auch noch locker 1300 passen.Can't beat this little bullet for the price! This is the first RC plane I have flown in 15 years and it was no problem. I have been messing with quads for FPV for the last 2 years but wanted to try out a tiny plane for FPV and watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoqZs8OxKrY I was sold. I put it together with spare quad parts I had. The plane is durable and really does take a crash well. First flight I nosed right into the dirt due to a poor CG. That is my only complaint: poor explanation of the CG which is critical. Otherwise it's a great buy.The only down side to it is the complete lack of instructions. There are three important things to know: First, the CG should be set at around 7 mm ahead of the slot that carries the servo wires through the wing. Second, in order to mount the motor you will have to unglue the wooden motor mount, drill it for your motor, bolt the motor to it and then re-glue the mount. Use hot glue so you can unglue the mount again easily if you need to change motors later on. Third, set your elevons flush with the wing root trailing edge for the first flight. This wing already has the needed "up elevator" amount molded into the shape of the airfoil. I have crashed this wing several times trying to find the best cg position and I can say it is extremely strong. I highly recommend this product if you are looking for a very nice-flying, small wing. Would also make an excelent light-weight fpv model.Excelent little wing. Flies fantastically. I set mine up for line-of-sight flying (no fpv). Used 5-gram servos (hxt 500), a zmr 1804 2400 kv motor, 5x4 gemfan prop, 12 amp AFRO ESC, orange R410x receiver and an 850mah 30C 3S lipo pack. Ready-to-fly weight came in at 230 grams (much lighter than the design flying weight of 270 grams). It will do unlimited verticals in this set-up with this weight (at 1000 meters above sea level, 28 degrees C). I subsequently lit the wing up with internal leds (it's an awesome night-flyer in this configuration). Flying weight now is 240 grams and it will almost do unlimited verticals at that weight, but not quite. I will post a picture of the lit-up wing under the "files" tab above. Endurance is 16 minutes with the leds off and 14 minutes with leds on.I forgot to mention that, if you need the extra room or you need to move stuff forward to get the right cg, you can cut off the epo bulkhead in the middle of the fuselage without any ill effects. I did this on mine. If you want to preserve the original stiffness during negative-g maneuvers, simply hot-glue a small piece of balsa wood to the top part of the fuselage (underneath the top hatch, so it's internal to the wing when the hatch is on). I did this too but then one day I noticed that the piece of balsa wood had come unglued on one side, with no noticeable effects on the flight characteristics, even when performing sequential inverted (outside) loops.I bought this to try to get some speed.
I have 20A 2825kv 4s setup with 6x4 prop three blade...
It flyes insane fast, going to test a 5x5 high speed prop..
it flyes faster than my Synapse edf...
It is not stable in high speed fligh, but ok is slower speed...
Good quality...i am planing to meiden this wing with ax 1806 on her!
actually i want a not so fast micro fpv wing and after maiden i will downgrade the motor for some test.
nice finishing and i guess i can unscrew the fins and pack the wing in her box for transport!
the canopy require a extra small (micro) pair of magnets somwhere in the midle , otherwuse im afraid i will lose it on the flight
1300 seems to be max.
