Things to look out for, at least what I'm waiting for are, canopy with cam, one link, ...anything else I'm missing out on folks that's scheduled to be released for the eye one?
Cheers
Ayo
Canopy with FPV... one more waiting... and i hope they will do it so we can also install the same canopy on other equipments like tricopter... the canopy shoud be totally independent so we can use it in other equipments.

That's some pretty good thinking. I am constantly impressed by the innovation of the people on the rcgroups forums. I would bet that the IQ of the total membership is WAY above average!

I thought I would share. The red plastic tube is from a push rod sheath and the small clear plastic connectors are from a Bic pen . I took a small soldering iron and melted a wedge out of 1/2 of the Bic tube. I then bent it 90 degrees while still hot. This is an old Kite builder's trick. Check it out. I did need to use a little balsa
( I LOVE balsa to this day) to space out the mounting of the 4 centering rods.
I just used tape to attach to the motor arms. I did not weigh anything, but, hey
just how much can this weigh? Cheap,easy,effective, what's not to like.
( easy, I can see it comming now....)

I let ANYONE use it last night and someone who never had a controller in her
hands applied full power in Sport mode and did a high speed crash into the walls.
( as in riccochet off of a couple of walls). No damage.
And fun was had by all!

I am not too sure about that 49%. Did you know that 96.873% of all statistics are made up on the spot!

Strictly speaking, I think you meant "49% are below the median".

Hi Jake,

Sorry to here of your issue man. Nobody like the magic white smoke. Just last week one of my favorite heli's decided the ESC was no longer worthy thus turning it into a white cloud of gloom...

Were you able to see if Tony can help you out. He's been known to dissect some EYE One's and sell just the FC in the past.

Please keep us posted.

Regards,

Adam

Mine just arrived in the post today. Have flown 2 packs and no issues so far. A lof of fun!

The only other micro quad I have flown is the WL v939 and I would say the EYE one is much more stable plus I love the smaller playsation-esque Tx.

first impression

My eye one arrived yesterday. First impression, nice quality package, the only part i missed were the 2 extra landing skids
Flown 3 charges and must say, it's a stable flying machine, beautiful made and sounds good.
The TX is a bit vague, especially in beginners mode. It's also a bit too small for my big hands. I think the control sticks should be longer with some grip at the tips, like my spectrum dx7se, i think that would make it less vague with more control

Overall impression is very good with some minor issues on the TX. But that could be personal
