The Dronecode:

  • Always carry out pre-flight checks to ensure your UAV is ready to take to the sky.
  • Make sure you can see your drone at all times and dont fly higher than 120 meters
  • Always keep your drone away from aircraft, helicopters, airports and airfields
  • Use your common sense and fly safely, you could be prosecuted if you dont.

Drones fitted with cameras must not be flown:

  • Within 50 metres of people, vehicles, buildings or structures
  • Over congested areas or large gatherings such as concerts and sports events

These are the basic CAA regulations for flying an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)

  • The maximum altitude is 120 metres
  • The maximum distance from the operator is 500 metres
  • The minimum visibility needs to be 5 km
  • UAV must be flown in line of sight of the operator
  • UAVs cannot be flown at night without special permission
  • Permission must be obtained from the owner of the take-off point
  • UAVs cannot be flown within 50 metres of structures, vehicles or people that are not under the control of the person in charge of the aircraft.

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.

Key Features:

  • Available in Ready-to-Fly and Bind-N-Fly® Basic versions
  • Easy to fly indoors
  • Durable foam wing design easily survives bumps and crashes
  • Converts between Quad and Wing Modes in seconds with stick commands
  • Programmable LED lights
