LOL. Not at all. Not all old people are "Old farts" by my definition. Many are vibrant, young at heart and full of wisdom.

Old farts are the ones who manage to reach their golden years, but are jaded by everything and are cranky, bitter, negative. And they look to bicker with others online versus using their wisdom and know that not everyone see eye to eye. At least that's my definition of the old farts.

My post to dave1993 was a little early morning jest and ribbing. No offense intended to our senior members.

NO offense at all, I was just joking
My wife calls me "the old fool" and it always makes me laugh.

It's like this, mate. If your social security card is made of tin, then you're an old fart. If it's plastic, you're doing alright. If you don't even know that social security cards used to be made of tin, you're a youngster. It's that simple.

Best,
Chris

UDI 816 - Indoor Flights

This thread has been a great source of information on all Mini/Micro quads.

I own and fly the MqX, but had an opportunity to fly my co-worker's UDI 816 the other day. This is an awesome and stable quad... after you fly a few batteries, you can make it do what you want... hover, loop, stunts This is my video from Day 1 Battery 3... I am not the best pilot, but had a blast on this mini quad ...

Micro Quad Copter Flying @ SiTEL (1 min 40 sec)


This has made me bring out my MqX from the basement to the office !

I have flown a mQX with winds up to 3 Bft (easy)
I have build my mQX quad today and found that it has less oomph (small rotor blades) but I flown it with a stock 500 mAh eFlite (heavy)
