looks like the mqx but with safe tech and an add on camera with a bigger nano style cowel.

i have the mqx and im about to add a fpv system to it once the camera arrives so im happy. if anything i would upgrade to the safe fc thats in this quad.

to bad they didnt put a vid out port on the camera so it could be hooked to a video transmitter

This would fit my beginning fancy with video capture without dropping the big bucks on a 350qx and additional money on the go pro camera. Ill probably buy the camera for $40 and try on my blade 400, hydros, etc to get a feel for camera.
Cheap enough to satisfy the curiousity of on board video. Wonder if FVP is possible?

This thread is apparently running parallel to one started by ChuckTSeeker the day before.
Still ... I 'spose you can read both by googling to RCG 180QX
Both have good comments and info.
BTW ... If you go to the official Blade website ... Go to latest news, which includes the new 180QX ... access that item and then read the bottom paragraph, and you'll see that they reckon that there are only 4 new parts on the 180QX, the rest are presumably all from the mQX.
Presumably the four new parts have to be obviously the main board, followed by the new u/c, canopy, and camera and associated bits for it. There's precious little detail in any advertising, but the Manual is available for download ... The first 20odd pages are the English version ... Well worth a read ... You'll learn a lot!
Daffy.
P.S. ... Camera is an extra ... The other new part is actually the Mounting Frame for the Control Board and to mount the U/C.

Quick P.S. To above ... Nice to see that the first action video, including the inflight camera in action, originated from Modelflight here in Oz ... Pretty good demo too, but would have liked to see the various flight modes demonstrated ... Perhaps that's asking too much.
