It will be my first legit quality Heli and i plan on giving my honest opinions on it's performance. The truth is i can't find anyone saying anything bad about it. So i don't even see a need for a review
But here is a place to talk about it. I am moving up from Walkera products like the 4f200, v450 and the v120. They are okay for learning and i have completely overhauled most of them to perform better. But it's time for some quality flight. Plus the high winds here are a pain. I'm sure this heli will handle much better than any of those ever did.

Congratulations, and welcome to the "GauiGrin" society.
I have had a few 550-600 ships, and I wholeheartedly prefer the X5 over them all.
Good move fella. :-D
