The Nano QX is more difficult to fly than the MCPX, in agility mode. But, in stability mode it's stable and handles like a dream. That's what makes them such great trainers. It's very durable, too. I sunk mine in my daughter's swimming pool. My son-in-law had to fish it out. I let it sit in the hor car for a few hours and it was fine.

Balancer

So, newbie that I am, have been outfitting with certain tools for sustaining the hobby and one of those was the Turnigy Universal Blade Balancer.
Ok, open the box to put it together, no instructions, mechanically inclined here, so piece a cake to assemble. The other side of the coin is no directions on how to use it. Anyone seen a Ytube video on how to use this?

Balr14, I should have listed to you from the start! Got the Nano QX today, flew 4 batteries in safe mode inside the house and learned a ton more than the 3 weeks with the MCPX outside. Flying inside with no wind makes learning orientation a lot easier. Also, the consistent movements of the QX is reassuring. Only issue for me with the QX is seeing which end is the front when it is far away. Might need to add some fluorescent paint to the front arms to make the front end more obvious.
