XLPower Specter 700 - Low Parts Count, Ultra High Performance.
Designed with a low parts count, high performance design, XLPower steps into the 700 class fray with a helicopter that features an aesthetically pure pod and boom layout, paired with exceptional value and incredible sophistication.
Optimized for brutal levels of 3D performance, the Specter 700 design focuses upon a high CG layout, with all the electronics placed high within the frame for the best overall balance. Paired with a main rotor system that is low in respect to the tail boom, this engineered layout provides the very best CG setup for incredible levels of aerobatic performance.
Quality in design, the XLPower 700 utilizes premium carbon fiber components with a minimalistic design that has been simplified for the ultimate ease of use. Featuring high strength titanium turnbuckle linkage rods that offer the ultimate levels of precision adjustment, XLPower placed thought & effort into making the Specter 700 a joy to build and adjust, translating into a superb flying 3D machine.
Featuring a belt driven tail rotor system for ultimate levels of durability and strength, the Specter 700 utilizes this belt driven design for optimum power transfer without the typical mechanical complexities experienced by torque tube drive equivalents. In the event of a tail strike, a belt driven tail will typically withstand the impact, whereas a more fragile gear driven torque tube drive will easily strip, leading to tail gear damage and a possible crash. This robust belt driven layout is tried and true with excellent overall efficiency for high demand power transfer and powered off auto-rotation performance.
Utilizing a high performance CNC machined aluminum rotor system that has a wide envelope of low & high rotor rpm's, the Specter 700 utilizes an ultra high strength 15mm main shaft that is paired to a dual adjustable rotor blade grip system, featuring (2) mounting holes that allows the pilot to mechanically tune the helicopter for the level of aggression and performance desired. This rotor design provides excellent overall performance, with ultra crisp high rpm characteristics, offering amazing levels of 3D agility.
Constructed for ease of use, the Specter 700 features a sliding rail system for ultra easy battery changes. Secured via a single thumb screw & O-Ring design, batteries can be changed in rapid fashion, equating to quick battery swaps to get back in the air fast. Further this with the ability to utilize 12S 44.4V or 14S 51.8V power options, the Specter 700 features a wide CG range that allows the ability for the aircraft to be fine tuned for optimum overall balance, with the option of large 5500mAh packs to maximize flight time.
