Got my X1 yesterday. It came with the red board.

Things I've noticed;

It's extremely light. Plastic on feet looks almost too thin and brittle compared to my V949, but looks nice. I wonder how well it will do in the wind.

Flies very easily with a tight yaw. However, seems like it takes forever to stop when moving fast in one direction. It's definetly not snappy.

Tx light sequence a little different than V949. On the latter you turn it on, boom lights flash, fc LED blinks fast, and then you turn on tx. On The X1 you turn tx on immediately. 100% on V949 is pretty much same as High on Syma controller, but yaw may be a little slower?

The thing actually looks pretty nice without the canopy and just the red fc with its encased plastic cover and bright LED. If you want a no-need-to-mod (except the battery thing to pop out) and maximum flight time quadcopter, this is it. An incredible deal for $35. Things have come a long way in one year.

Overall, at charcterize the X1 as the equivalent of a casual fixed wing parkflyer.
