Vectron Blackhawk-The next generation of flying toys.

The Vectron uses a NEW concept in hovering flight. Most vertical takeoff and landing aircraft rely on expensive and delicate gyro stabilization systems to remain stable in hovering flight. With Vectron this is not necessary since the entire body rotates.

Vectron Blackhawk-The next generation of flying toys.

This provides all the gyroscopic stability necessary for hovering flight. The trick is in providing directional control. This is done by patented process of continuously changing the power to all three motors as they rotate in such a way to provide vectored control of the vehicle.

This is all accomplished by the thrust vector computer inside the controller. For the TVC to coordinate your control inputs and provide the correct motor control signals some reference to the position of the Vectron as it rotates is needed. This is provided by the infrared beam. The beam is projected out radially as the Vectron rotates and is detected by the IR DOME in front of Y the controller. The TVC then knows the exact position of all three motors at the moment the IRB strikes the IR DOME.
For the TVC to coordinate your control inputs and provide the correct motor control signals some reference to the position of the Vectron as it rotates is needed. This is provided by the infrared beam.

It takes this information and the position of your vector control joystick and calculates the correct sequence of power for all three motors as they rotate to move the Vectron in the same direction as you moved the joystick.

As long as you look directly at the Vectron Blackhawk as it is flying and hold the controller so that the IR DOME is pointing in that direction, the Vectron will directly follow your movements of the VECTOR CONTROL joystick. This is very intuitive. No matter where the Vectron is in your flying space, pushing the joystick forward will move the Vectron away from you, moving the stick back will move it towards you, right and left will move the Vectron respectively right and left. This is unlike most remote controlled vehicles that require you to mentally change your perspective based on the vehicle orientation, ie. when an RC car is coming towards you, turning to your right requires you to turn the control to your left.
the L.E.D display which allows you to programme any message as the Vectron spins it writes out any message you like

Another exciting feature is the L.E.D display which allows you to programme any message as the Vectron spins it writes out any message you like, just like the Eye-fo frisbee

Programmable message. Light emitting Diodes (L.E.Ds) can be programmed for a message up to 30 characters. Click here to see a more detailed image of the Blackhawk vectron box
