 Ares-RC V-Hawk X4 RTF & PTF with HITEC RED

Arriving next week in the warehouse is something completely different from Ares-RC, the new V-Hawk X4.  It is the first of a brand new series of aircraft with Hitec Red protocol receivers factory installed, compatible with all current Hitec 2.4GHz aircraft transmitters.

http://www.modelengines.com.au/libraries/images/eMarketing February 2016/V-Hawk_X4 in the hover with Hitec Red[1].jpg

The V-Hawk is capable of lifting vertically like a helicopter or quad-copter then transition to fling like a normal plane. 

The flying transition is made easy with the use of an innovative pre-installed, flight control board and pre-assembled rotating motor nacelles.   With just the flip of a channel switch on your transmitter the motor nacelles rotate.  As they do, the flight controller automatically changes the programming from flying like a quad to flying like an aeroplane with elevon controls.  Simply flip the switch back to return to quad-flying mode. 


http://www.modelengines.com.au/libraries/images/eMarketing February 2016/V-Hawk_X4 flying forward[1].jpg

The Ares V-Hawk is available in four versions:

  • RTF (Ready to Fly) in Mode 1
  • RTF (Ready to Fly) in Mode 2
  • PTF (Pair to Fly)
  • RFR (Ready for Receiver)
The RTF and PTF versions come with Hitec RED protocol in their receivers that is compatible with all current Hitec 2.4GHz aircraft transmitters.  (RFR version does not come with RX or TX).
 
Features
  • Durable EPO construction
  • Factory painted with decals applied
  • 2730Kv Brushless motors and ESC's
