MXP230 MINI FPV Quadcopter by Xhover /G10/Carbon Fiber/ PDB

Very Excited to introduce the Mini X Pro 230 AKA "MXP230"

I noticed no clean section, but if no video jello then its all good.

On a side note, I wonder when are the Chinese going to produce standoff made out of rubber. Something strong enough to withstand some crashes and soft enough to absorbs vibes.

mxp230 test pilot

I was fortunate to be a test pilot for this frame. I have to tell you this thing rocks. It's a tank and you'll be happy to have jello free video with your mobius or Gopro.Yesterday I had a motor malfunction while attempting to flip either the E-clip whore out or some how came loose the prop with the bell housing comes flying off. Mini dropped for 40 feet ... other than the motor everything was fine. That would have split my arms or break it off with my qav250...The arms are so think I would bet no one can break them and if by some crazy crash you do. Replacing an arm is quick and easy but I doubt an arm will ever break. I own a qav250. Built and flew the mini-d and the blackout. This thing is in a class all its own.. If you buy this you wont regret it.

Here is a video I did earlier this week. Keep in mind that I just built this mini the night before and not yet tuned. I was just so excited to see how she will preform.

I am also testing this frame out... it's my first mini though I've test flown several of the other popular mini's out there including the QAV250, Mini-H and the DRQ250 aka "Mini-D" and I'm very impressed with this MXP230 frame, right away this frame feels EXTREMELY SOLID and I can tell it will take a beating and keep coming back for more. It's modular arm design is a big plus though I doubt there will ever be a need to replace these!!!

At first I was concerned as it is heavier than the others but with the suggested power setup and even with a 3s 1800 this mini is nimble (test hover and tossed around in the parking garage at work). I'll be updating this thread once I get some flights in as I just finished building this mini tank last night

You can use a 1600mah to get about 8-10min depending how hard you push this mini.
