This is a most unusual Morphing aircraft. It fits into the “Will it fly or Won’t it fly?” category, proving the unlikely.
Air hogs seems to be on the cutting edge of making unusual flying machines.
The Switchblade is certainly another. The motor configuration on the wing is adjustable from hover to forward flight.
Controls must be dealt with a gentle touch and trimming before flying, helps a lot.
Once you get the hang of it, it really is a lot of fun. We have bashed them into houses, trees, fences and the Earth and still have not even broken a prop!
It is lots of fun just to hover and land too.
Note: It is imperative to fly in a big space and then go high before morphing into forward flight. After morphing, keep motors running and wait till it levels out before trying to turn. Only pulse the controls to turn or it will turn sharp into the ground.
Once you get the hang of it, you will find this loads of fun.

Thanks for watching.
