Question
cx-20 (aka quanum nova) vs. walkera qrx350 pro

So i've been looking at getting a 350 quad, and have been reading threads on all, and i've come to a coin toss... I honestly cant decide on which pnf quad to invest in.

I need a nudge to the right machine. Helpful tips from owners are much appreciated.

Things id like to know would be;

Ease of use. This applies to things like updating firmware, apm programming, ease of setup and use, etc etc..

Tweaks, hiccups, gremlins, and how you've ironed them out sucessfully. These wpuld be like fpv with ilook and rfi, or flight characteristics when attaching a gimbal and camera (gopro, fatshark pan and tilt, ilook or ilook+ with the built in tx).

Reason for creating this thread, is i want something fresh to follow. Existing threads now are miles long, and to follow all the individual posts people have made get all mixed in with othrr thread contributors conversations.

Thanks for any help. Pictures of peopled setups and solutions to common problems are dually welcomed

Might be worth a look.

The Nova uses an APM compatible flight controller. Walkera hacked about a kind of crippled variant of the APM controller which will only load their firmware (which is kind of buggy and based on APM Copter 3.2 betas).

The down side with the nova is the smaller battery bay.

I went with the nova.

My two cents: forget pnf, spend the extra 40 on the radio and shipping weight and get rtf... the pnf was a nightmare. I may even say the walkera may have been the better choice (new version pro).

Thanks!
So, the X350 pro look like a better options then the cx-20? you tried to add some FPV solution to the quad? (2d gimbal/fpv camera?)
