Sorry, but nothing special as I bought it for the same price several days ago.
It's the regular price

Well then it might be a marketing trick from the staff at BG that does the mailings...

Anyway a good price.
.
Here is the UDI at 36.95USD as well. The same?

No matter, I prefer the v939 because of the compatibility with Turnigy / FlySky 9x radio

A possible indicator for compatibility with other radios could be the existence of BNF offers for a certain model.

At least this is true for v929 / v939 / v911 (9x radio) and mQX (DSM radio)

Could be there are other quads that can be flown with a Devo radio. I heard rumors that this could be true for the UDI micros and nanos. Proof?

I find this very interesting.
Parts links and an assembly video would be amazing to build a DSM2 compatable flier.
I've never flown or even seen a quad yet so that is the reason for what appears to be basic info.
If the Tx is the weakest link in most of these units, being able to fly with my normal Spektrum Tx would be awesome.

The MJX X100 - first impressions (sorry - PRE - flight ...)

just as a little FYI for anyone who might be interested ... I just got my MJX X100 in and wrote a word or two ... on my blog, posts# 96 and #97 (for now - the INDOOR flight report will (hopefully) follow later this afternoon ... )

The MJX X100 - first impressions (technically maiden flight)

Ok, so I went through one battery now and tried to get used to this thing ... doenst work that well yet though.
Lots of hard landings/crashing and the flips are still too much for me as a relative quad noob ... (even with years of coax)

What I can say though is, that it flips (IMHO) better than my UDI (seems to even do multiple flips without gap ...) and for a single flip it would probably need only about 2or 3 foot high (as opposed to the 7 ft the UDI needs)
Of course, the fact that I cannot read a manual and have to figure all these buttons and knobs out by trial and error, does not really help the cause either.

But as far as the quads that I tried up to now are concerned, for me it is the best of all the micros I tried! (even the ladybird V2 I would rate below this one)

Hopefully someone else who can read chinese and also has more experience in flying quads will soon be able to chime in and also help me to figure the little tricks of this TX out ...

Oh Boy! You are killing me

Well, here you go:
For the ladybird part
2 booms clockwise
2 booms counterclockwise
3 Sets of 4 Main blades
For the Tx
Centerplate
AS3x 4in1 Flightcontrol

That's it

Thanks for the detailed hardware review on your blog!

In my opinion it could be the king of micro size quads concerning hardware.

Then i read yor statement "the best of all the micros I tried!", make me glad, i don't want a lemon.

Mine should arrive any day now (from Banggood), but the waiting is hard.

The Syma X1 is very tempting. It looks like the v929, and it doesn't auto flip. $45 and free shipping

The only thing I don't like is the Battery. Looking at the pictures of how you charge it I think the low voltage cutt off is in the end of the battery. That would make it difficult to use other batteries.

I also can't find a good review on this thing either. I may just pull the trigger on one and see how it goes.

Also, I've been told that the battery is hardwired to the board, so it's not easily replaced.
