Drones fitted with cameras must not be flown:
These are the basic CAA regulations for flying an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
Anything over these restrictions can only be allowed by obtaining a licence from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
We recommend you read the CAA website for full information on safe and responsible flying.

It's a blast to fly micro RC planes and drones - so imagine the fun you'll have flying both with only one model! The Blade® Inductrix® Switch Air expands on the popular Inductrix Switch hovercraft's versatility, going from quadcopter to flying wing literally in a snap.
The Inductrix Switch Air is the second member of the Inductrix Switch family, both of which feature a modular, snap-together design that's exclusive to the Blade brand. It's literally two models in one, transforming from a micro drone (Quad Mode) into a flying wing (Wing Mode) in seconds using simple stick commands. No tools or wiring changes are required. You don't even have to unplug the battery! It's easy for beginners and experienced users alike.
Even in Wing Mode, the Inductrix Switch Air is perfectly suited for flying indoors in tight areas. No "runway" space is needed. Thanks to its VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing) capabilities, you simply rise to a hover, then push the sticks forward and start flying. When you're ready to land, slow and descend like you would with a drone. The Inductrix Switch Air can also be flown outdoors in very light winds.
In both Wing and Quad modes, SAFE® stabilizing technology provides self-leveling flight to give all pilots confidence at the controls. Limited pitch and bank angles prevent over-control.
The modular design of the Blade Inductrix Switch Air is also compatible with that of the Inductrix Switch hovercraft. Add a few optional parts and your Inductrix Switch Air can become a hovercraft, too. Enjoy a third mode of RC action without buying another complete model! What’s more, with a simple firmware update using the USB Programmer cable (BLH7840), you can convert your Inductrix Switch hovercraft into a Switch Air.
