XLPower Specter 700 V2 Kit with Rotortech 690mm & XLPower 105mm Tail 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 & 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.

Fantastic update

The Specter V2 is a great update to what was a decent helicopter. There are many notable, well engineered features in this version as well as great quality throughout. The carbon frames are perfectly cut and appear to have had all edges sanded. All hardware is of excellent quality, the design shows the careful thought that went into the model. As someone who has built and flown Hirobo helicopters for 25 years, this design is every bit as good as what Hirobo could put together. The only thing lacking would be the fine diamond finish on Hirobo’s aluminum parts. However, XL Power have nicely finished all the aluminum parts here in a very durable and modern looking satin grey. Nice indeed. All parts fit perfectly and the design could not be any simpler - again, everything is well laid out. I am truly very impressed and was not expecting to be so happy with it. Watch Nick Maxwell’s videos on his XL Power machines and the setup with Futaba and the CGY760. Although I own that gear I am putting a Bar Neo on mine, but I know it will fly with just about anything. I am powering mine with an Egodrift 4530, Scorpion ESC and Theta servos. By the way, the Theta servos are excellent. I’ve been using a Theta tail servo in a Logo 550 and it took care of the tail wagging (non gain related). I am also using the Funtech main and tail blades (purchased as a set with my kit).
You cannot go wrong with this model. I think you will be as pleased with it as I am.

Xl700 v2 and Helidirect guys

Bought the XL 700 V2 Spectre at Huntsville. Shit is well packed parts are labeled well but Manual could be a little better in certain areas. Met Jason Russell and a couple other guys they are outstanding to work with and we’re very helpful will continue to purchase from them
