If you look at H36 and V949, you will definitely see real differences, such as size, the type of props, the direct-driven vs gear-driven.

Thanks, I can see that now. Though these are just tech specs.
Maybe someone can compare what are real differences in flight time, lift power, stability and durability between these two?

There was some talk on another thread that the latest v949's are not compatible with 9x (not flysky), so I'd be cautious going that route. Not sure if that applies to the v929, which should fly identically to the v949. As far as flight differences between H36 and v9x9, the H36 is all about speed, it can outrun just about anything on the market, but it doesn't turn or bank so well, especially using the stock tx (perhaps the 9x fares better). The v9x9 I'd say is more suitable for doing circuits and other maneuvers, as well as using as a video platform.

If you want something that can handle winds then you want an accelerometer-equipped quad. Neither the V929 nor X1 have accelerometers, only gyros.

IMHO, the direct drive micro quads with accelerometers hand wind much better than mini quads like V929, 949, and syma X1, those don't have accelerometers. They also have bigger profiles to be moved around by the wind. I have however not flown a mini quad with accelerometers, but the micros are faster and more agile, I think. Micros I have are the V252, V202, JXD385, and 107c. Of those four, the 385 and 252 are my first choices, the 252 has better lights for night flying. Orientation up to 300 feet away night or day is not a problem for me with any of these, but they get small really fast after that.

I would recommend you go to MassiveRC and get a V252 or V242. If you want bigger, get a V212 or V222. I am not sure if he has them in stock or not, he is based in Florida and one of the best vendors around.

Thanks SF. V212's should be back in stock hopefully in a week or two and they'll be V2 with the drivetrain change (ball bearings, mainshaft, gear, props, and motor housings).

What he said or if you dont mind waiting a V202 from Banggood is a very good quad IMO.

If you want to start out with a micro, and not spend much, you can get a JXD 385 from TMart. A good microquad and TMart has them in the USA warehouse sometimes. It just doesn't have very good lights for night flying. But the 385 tx will work with all of the WLToys V2x2 quads also.

Wow... a driving and flying quad! But not my cup of tea.

That remote sure looks a lot like a V222 transmitter. That car/copter looks heavy, like it weighs about 50 grams compared to the 24 grams of the JXD385. No thanks.
