XLPower Specter 700 V2 Helicopter Kit Without Blades

We've spent the last year and a half designing and testing a new 700 for all pilots. This helicopter brings you excellent 3D performance, a simplified build and maintenance processes, a robust and long lasting lightweight 700 platform for everyone. We worked together with world champion pilots and continuously made improvements to bring you the XLPower Specter V2.

With the rotor head lowered by 10mm compared to the Specter V1, the helicopter benefits from improved vertical mass distribution and agility. Like it's predecessor, the Specter V2 rotor head consists of double row angular contact bearing rotor head for incomparable bearing life and smooth operation. The Specter V2 also does away with tailboom supports and instead opts for a with 32mm diameter tail boom for a cleaner look and extremely rigid design. the third shaft bearing support arrangement has been simplified, making rotor head installation and removal much easier and faster.

The battery tray design has been completely revamped. It loads from the rear, effectively removing the need to remove the canopy to install the LiPo pack. An optional upgrade offers a built in connector in the tray, so when you insert the battery the helicopter powers up.

The gyro tray has been moved to the front, making wiring easier and cleaner, and reducing vibration transfer to the gyro.

The Specter V2 also has a wider and lower landing gear which helps reduce tipovers during autorotations and rough landings.

The Specter V2 comes default with a wide 8mm custom tail belt with extreme long life. In addition, the size of the tail belt pulleys has been increased, from 80T/16-17T to 100T/20-21T, which significantly reduces bending radius of the belt improving belt life and reducing belt drag and power loss, which can especially be noticed during autorotations.

The V2 comes with the same durable 15mm thick main gear as the V1 airframe, and can optionally be upgraded to an ultra heavy duty 18mm gear for a nearly indestructible power train.

One of the more noticeable changes on the Specter V2 is the tail control rod, which has been moved to the top of the tail boom. This allows the tail servo to be mounted as high as possible, once again improving on the vertical Center of Gravity. It is mounted directly opposite the center cyclic servo, offering a clean symmetrical look.

Like the Specter V1, the V2 has a simple one piece billet aluminum tail box. The design has been optimized for easy assembly, quick maintenance and low part count. A new super lightweight tail fin also helps reduce unneeded weight. The Specter V2 comes stock with a 21T rear pulley offering a 4.76:1 ratio, and can be upgraded to a 20T pulley for even better tail performance. Because of the larger pulleys, the tooth contact on the belt is higher which greatly reduces the chance of tail belt slip on extreme tail loads and reversals.

We are extremely excited to bring to you the Specter V2, an extremely flexible platform for everyone from collective pitch beginners to extreme 3D pilots.

Satisfied with kit

I bought this to convert to a gasser. The kit was well packed, nothing was missing and assembled well. Manual is online and it really is very good. Won't be disappointed.

build quality isnt great

build quality isnt great. especially compared to the tron i built this year. no comparison. i had a bunch of mis aligned parts on this v2 kit. parts just seem cheap. even looking at the heli fully built next to the tron the v2 doesn't look impressive. frame parts slightyl off screws didnt line up evenly. 3rd bearing block is a hair off. had to force the maj shaft in to it even with the screws loose. has the same crappy hard to adjust motor mount set up as the v1. youd think theyd change that to a one piece design. the lipo tray lock pin isnt long enough ,just barely sticks into the tray notch. v2 flys good. is it worth the same price as the tron.. prob not.

Specter V2

Kit has great potential but dealing with some quality control issues. During assembly I found one of the motor mount frame spacers but machined incorrectly, which Helidirect promptly said they will mail out when it is in stock. Spooling the heli up gives a very nasty resonance from the tail. After some trouble shooting the only thing I can point this to is the fact that the tail grips are different weights, which are off by .3g. First guess was the tail hub, which after replacing leaves me still with the vibration. For a belt driven and dampened tail it has more vibes than any heli I have seen.

Again, the heli great has potential and a great reputation but wanted to let others know of some of the issues I have encountered with this kit.

great improvement over the V1

i own several of the xl power models and this newest version of the Specter is a home run! the lower headblock and moving of the tail servo to the top of the frame makes rolls so much nicer. the larger tail belt makes for a very quiet drivetrain . the helicopter is very simple to put together and is very well thought out . i highly recommend this kit for anyone weather your a hardcore pilot or new to 700s .

V2!!

The V2 is next level! I owned the V1, and it flew extraordinary well out of the box solid. However the V2's new servo layout is forward thinking, and you can really feel it in the ailerons. It's more agile, its faster, and it weighs less than the V1 which makes it respond faster.. ITS A MUST HAVE.
