Fixed wing fpv is become more and more popular, because of it combines multirotor, fpv, plane versatility. Today E-flite convergence vtol review share to you, I definitely recommend this excellent and super fun aircraft. Why? go ahead, after reading this e flite convergence review you will know the reason.
E-flite convergence vtol in box
What’s in the box? as you see the above image, there are one boboy convergence vtol BNF, two pair propellers, two vertical fins and one user manual in the foam box. Before you flight, need full range at least 6 channels transmitter and 2200-3000mAh 3s lipo battery. If you need FPV system, video transmitter and FPV camera are required. In general, look like very simple to ready to fly. The quality of the E-flite convergence vtol feels pretty good as is expected from Horizon Hobby.
E-flite convergence vtol Assembly
Next step is assemble all the parts, assembling the convergence VTOL is quick and easy as following.
Install the vertical fins
Install the vertical fins on the fuselage using two screws per side as shown.
Install the main propellers
The main propellers are labelled near the hub with an “R” and an “L” to show on which side they should be installed. Install the propeller nut on the collet. Use a small screwdriver or hex wrench through the hole in the propeller nut to tighten. Do not overtighten the propeller nut as damage to the propeller, nut or collet may occur.

2200mah 3s 30c is recommended by the E-flite official but you can increase the capacity and C-rate for convergence vtol, up to 3000mAah and 50C is also okey. Install the fully charged battery in the battery compartment. Secure using the hook and loop strap. Connect the battery to the flight controller. Refer to the Center of Gravity section to ensure the model balances at the

Install FPV system
Items required for FPV system installation, there are camera,video transmiter,antenna and video monitor with headset or goggles.
Installation of a video transmitter as shown (right). Connect the lead from the power adapter to the video transmitter harness. Connect the power adapter EC3 plug to the power lead from the flight controller. Thread the video camera connector from the FPV compartment, through the fuselage and to the front of the bottom compartment. Attach the video transmitter antenna to the video transmitter. Replace the video transmitter hatch by gently pushing in on the sides and pressing the hatch straight down into the fuselage.
Flight convergence vtol
The main feature of the convergence vtol is that these two flight modes (stability and acro flight modes) give you a wide range of performance for every phase of flight. You can make transitioning in flight.
Stability modes, in multirotor flight, Stability Mode will limit pitch and bank angles and work to keep the model level when you release the sticks. This allows you to take off and land like a pro, even if you’ve never flown a multirotor before.Stability mode is highly recommended for the fi rst few takeoffs and landings, until you become familiar with how the aircraft reacts to control inputs.
Acro modes,In airplane flight, Acro Mode lets you perform a wide range of aerobatic maneuvers. And because you have the forward thrust of two brushless motors working for you, there is plenty of speed and power to spare.
E-flite convergence vtol ready to fly
To transition to airplane flight from multirotor flight, change the flight attitude switch on your transmitter to the airplane flight position. The throttle will increase slightly and the motor nacelles will rotate forward in three stages to the airplane flight position.
To transition to multirotor flight from airplane flight, reduce the airspeed, change the flight attitude switch on your transmitter to the multirotor flight position and stability mode for landing.
For your first flights with the recommended battery pack, set your transmitter timer or a stopwatch to 6 minutes.
