The entire line of XK products is excellent. Both the 420 and 520 fly great and I would even recommend it for a beginner with the help of someone experienced. Fun to fly and to land vertically. It’s almost embarrassing how easy it lands.

need to glue or tape the LEDs… floor flight performance is great

User rating

Overall:

It is very easy to fly it. In addition, it can do VTOL. It means that you can fly this model vertically. You don’t need a runway for landing. However, be careful! On a windy day, it is rather tricky to fly it vertically. Overall, I recommend it.

User rating

Overall:

I highly recommend this model. I also have the Convergence VTOL, but I’m liking this more. It doesn’t handle high winds as well in Vertical mode, but it is a little smaller and it’s half the price with twice the flight time. The motors don’t have to pivot to transition from vertical flight to horizontal flight, and the transition is smoother – and it comes with night lights that plug into the circuit board through a slot on the bottom, if you choose the night flying radio.

this is a stable craft but you will need a very large area to fly it the hover only works in low wind conditions before the drift takes it downstream it is a lot of fun to change attitude in flight

It is stable at VTOL, and switching to airplane mode is smooth. Because there are wheels, even if the wind is strong it can slide and land.

Very strong and crash proof. However I recommend to re-inforce sensitive parts (motor brackets wings landing gear) with transparent tapes. It flies very stable in airplane mode. Excellent 3D/6G flights. Too sensitive to wind in vertical mode due to the big surface of the wing. Vertical to airplane mode is quite smooth and easy.

Bought this on discount price as i have NO experience in flying planes so was not bothered about crashing it. First few fights i took of and landed it no problems in DRONE mode, 4th take off i put it in 6G mode and flew it no problems at all, handed the controls over to my 10yr old son and even he managed to fly it in 6G mode after a few practice take off’s(he has had plenty of kids drone experience). 2nd run out we can take off in 6G plane mode but landing is a bit harder. not had the balls to use … Read more

This thing is absolutely amazing! I have flown it several time with no disappointments. The design is sleek, the speed of this thing is super overpowered and I love the fact that you can switch between VTOL, 6G and 3D modes while inflight. I think that it is great value for its price and it perform beautifully even after it has crashed I have still managed to fix it and it still keeps going!!!

This VTOL craft is pretty easy to control, whether it is in “quad” mode or “airplane” mode, and it is one of the more stable VTOL platforms available, especially for the price. I love this plane, err quad, or whatever you want to call it! I bought a second one since the price was so cheap!! I have the XVERT also and they’re both a blast, but the X520 is a better deal since it comes with the tx also. Don’t know if they’re still on a “flash” deal, but get yourself one because you won’t regret it! … Read more
