The Graupner X-44 VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) is and airplane and can take off vertically just like a helicopter or quadcopter. After reaching a safe altitude the X-44 will tilt its four motors and transition to horizontal flight mode. The Graupner X-44 makes runways a thing of the past.
With just the flip of a switch on your transmitter the motor nacelles gently rotate to transition your X-44 into, and out of, the hover. As they do the flight controller automatically changes the flight mode from a stabilized quad set-up to fixed-wing elevon control.
The X-44 is a perfect airplane for advanced and experienced pilots. The X-44 provides an ideal opportunity to fly an aircraft that not only presents a challenge but a unique and captivating sight in the air.
