And I hope your wait isn't too long. Brushless is cool, but the added weight and complexity makes it more prone to damage with any accidents. The near super lightness of the mQX and even more so with the latest super micro quads make them less prone to damage due to less mass at the crash. Easier on walls, windows, LCD Tv's, and baby quadcopters.
More mass and brand new quad pilots will not make a lot of friends for Horizon.
But that may just be my old 62 year old opinion kicking in again.
Yes I have had my issues with little baby brushed motors by Horizon and others, but I won't begrudge Horizon for not jumping headlong into a new failure rate issue.
Expert level equipment should probably not be pushed onto the largely beginner RC hobbyist. Even the mQX takes more than beginner skills to master.
Just some thoughts from an mQX pilot.

In my opinion they will release a blade mqx with the tail motor of the new brushless mcpx
it's 8mm the same diameter of the mqx motor.
They only need to change the motherboard.
Mcpx weight was increased of only 15 grams. The mqx will become great for outdoor flight and......for beginners,62 years old
, and for who didn't want spend a little more money the brushed mqx will not be discontinued as happens for msr mcpx v2,etc.
To me this look like obvious. We need an outdoor powerful and crash proof quadcopter.
