Hi i would recommend x650..x450 is not the animal you want for AP. you may get cheaper deal on x650 on cnchelicopter or else where...good luck

Great news..as i understand from translation..(this may not be official)
they will ship antenna replacements for free and if you need a active antenna they will charge you a small amount...this is promising.

They are releasing all new firmware and config software with support for other variants like y6, x8 etc

the new firmware would have improved GPS performance...expected Mid June..

Good work as always Xaircraft.

Any issues with leaving the USB adapter left plugged into the FC all the time? I'd like to mount it to my frame so I only have to connect the actual mini-USB plug to my PC to make setting changes.
