The Blade 350 QX is rated as suitable for beginners, but it needs room to fly. A 200 QX is great for FPV in small parks or your yard, but its brushless motors can make it move like a squirrel on...

There are a lot of nice quads complete with radio that can be purchased for less than $100. They are small and limited compared to what you can get for more, but all of them can be flown indoors in...

To verify that the DX8 was at fault, I used it to fly my 180 QX and nano QX. Had to add 75% full scale rudder trim to stop their yaw. These results led me to re-calibrate the DX8 sticks. That...

True, adjusting trim ought to stop the yaw. I understand what you are saying and realize new gimbals will not behave like the original gimbals. I am being cautious because the other part of the...

If you have a DSM2 Spectrum or JR radio such as a DX6i, consider the 180 QX. It is the brushed motor predecessor to the 200 QX. Since the 200 is the latest addition to their product line, you...

1) When you say, "pull," do you mean that the gray props strike the ground instead of lifting that end of the toy into the air? 2) Are all 4 motors running? 3) Do the red props turn at all? 4) Did...

If he is a beginner, consider a 180 QX as a stepping stone to a 350 QX. The small size of the 180 QX makes it hard to break, easy to fix, and less lethal than an out of control 350 quad. A 180 is...

The 180 turned out to be a better camera platform than the MQX. I ditched its POS camera for a #16 and was pleased with the 180 stability compared to the MQX. However, the thing that I like the...
