Good Qs. Who knows? One would think that the ad should list 'what's in the box.'

The radio, did you read the review that says it comes with no manual? Doesn't appear to be a download either. The quad very specifically says: 'For professional use,without the manual or instruction.' Read: you're on your own now!!

You *LOCK* yourself into their proprietary Tx/Rx system.

I wouldn't buy anything from a Chinese company that can't bother to hire a native English speaker to write the text: "Chinese display,convenient way of designing to use and set up the meny more easier." ?????

The quad, they say straight up that it's a clone. Read: we can copy anything and make it cheaper, as long as you don't care that it's crappier.

I ran 'goodluckbuy' through a translator and it came back with 'you bought it, good luck, byebye.'

Does it work? Maybe. If not you get to ship it back to China for a month or so.

Bottom line is you pays your money and you takes your chances. I wouldn't fly that thing on a bet.

Used Spectrum DX6s are available for very inexpensive with their new models coming out. Find a good used know-working machine in the for sale areas. You'll spend the same, and get some -quality- hardware.

GL and welcome to your new hobby obsession.

Hi guys, thanks a lot for this tutorial. I also am planning a build and would like some advice on my parts list. Motors enough power? Battery good? I also have aE-flite LP5DSM radio...would that be acceptable for this?
