The other micro quad: Helimax 1SQ - Flown with an Anylink connected to my DX6i. My go to in the car ready to pull out anytime and fly. Quick and nimble little flier. This flies a drift car slides around the track whereas the RC ONE EYE flies like it's on rails. Could be either the weight or gyros(?) that make a difference.

Flyzone Micro Super Cub - Also controlled with the AnyLink/DX6i. Current replacement for my 2nd of 2 champs that were lost. (1st one lost - flew beyond the stock TX range, 2nd one lost flying in down wind in 12 mph gusts -Doh!) . Meh... The is an excellent slow flier, but .....1) anything beyond 1/4 throttle it will motor torque steer to the left unless you give it constant right rudder 2) Noisy motor 3) non steerable tail wheel. If I lose this one definately going back to the Champ.

Techone Mini Pop Wing - Haven't had a chance to get to a large enough field to where I can maiden it without hitting parked cars

RC Logger Eye One with dice cam hook and looped to canopy. Cam is 1/3 the weight of the micro quad. In beginner flight mode, full throttle barely gets it off the ground. In sport mode lift seems adequate. I was able to hover it at 6 feet for 3 minutes without going to LVC. Expert mode will probably have more lift capability, but for the time being without "expo" dialed in with my thumbs, I'm too sketchy to attempt this.Videos to follow.

Can't wait for RC logger's promise of a one link and fpv setup for this "TONKA" TOY

Just maidened it today. I have to get used to the quicker response to the sticks after flying the Ember 2 (mia). I added packing tape to the front nose for my not so perfect nose over landings.

Update: This is now the only flier in the fix wing fleet. The others, J-3 cub and sukhoi I gave up trying to get to fly right. I'll probably save the electronics for some future micro build kit if I ever catch the building bug.
