The Flex Innovations FV-31 Cypher Super PNP Electric Airplane is an advanced and versatile vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) and short take-off and landing (STOL) model aircraft. Two fixed EDF units are mounted towards the leading edge of the wing, while two larger EDF units are mounted to a rotating pod at the rear of the aircraft. This advanced EDF configuration provides the greatest in total performance versatility, while remaining simple to use and easy to fly.

The Flex Innovations developed FLEXF3 stabilization board gives you a total of six unique ways to fly, while being able to choose between any of them at any time during the flight. These flight modes work seamlessly together to offer the most stable and predictable flight experience possible. Pilots will always retain total control, even during transitions between modes. The pilot can select between two stabilization profiles (Beginner and Advanced) as well as 3 distinct flight configurations (Hover, 45º “Magic” and Conventional).

The Beginner Profile: (6-axis)prevents the pilot from commanding the aircraft into an unwanted attitude (like inverted) by limiting the roll and pitch angles. Also, when the pilot centers his sticks, the aircraft will automatically return itself to level upright flight. This is extremely beneficial to newer pilots, or even for those more experienced pilots that may not be as comfortable with certain flight modes and just want that extra assistance.

The Advanced Profile: (3-axis) uses a more traditional stabilization and control type. This provides some assistance for helping dampen the effects of wind, torque and much more but the pilot won’t even notice that it is there. The aircraft is fully capable in this profile; from flips and rolls to pinwheels and insanely fast flat
spins, the pilot can fly uninhibited.

Hover Configuration: The rear EDF units are rotated near level and the aircraft flies similarly to a multi-rotor or helicopter. The aircraft can take off and land vertically and can fly in virtually any direction. Flips and rolls are even possible in this flight mode!

Conventional Configuration: The rear EDF units are rotated 90º so that they are perpendicular to the wing. In this configuration, the aircraft flies like any standard airplane, using the elevons for roll and pitch control. Amazing pinwheels and insanely fast flat spins can be done thanks to the aircraft’s differential thrust for yaw control.

45º ‘Magic’ Configuration: In this flight mode, the rear EDF units are rotated to a 45º angle, allowing for extremely short take-offs and landings, quick flips and rolls and more. The Cypher flies like a hybrid between an fixed-wing aircraft and a multi-rotor or helicopter in this flight mode. Unbelievably slow forward flight, while still being stable and in full control, even in higher wind speeds.

Purchase journey has been great.
International shipping is taking extra long lead time.
Tracking of shipment is also not accurate.
Until now I had not received my item.
Amain Customer Service is aware of the much delay.
Good thing is all outgoing shipments are fully insured.
Hope to receive soon and in perfect condition.
