I get the feeling that, one way or the other, I'm going to start flying fixed-wing pretty soon. The X PlusOne is the second planker we've got in the hopper following InterDrone – the other one being the Parrot Disco. For years, I've been totally committed to the multirotor platform, with some extremely brief forays into the world of single-rotor helicopters.
But now, there is just too many cool new fixed-wing systems coming out (or fixed-wing-ish, in the case of the X PlusOne) for me not to join in the fun! Lucky for me, I guess, that RealFlight X just came out, which will allow me to log my first couple of hundred crashes without any real-world pain. Still, if you live in SW Portland or the vicinity, you might want to keep an eye out for errant foamies tumbling down out of the sky.
