The H36 is only 3 axis gyro, no accelerometers.

I'm the same way as you, although I've never flown a fixed wing (yet). I actually get uncomfortable 'reeling it in' and am much more comfortable keeping forward flight. that's how I've trained myself, you could call it personal preference.

A full throttle power up into Louisiana clay from 100' up may not be dynamically a throw into a wall but I bet it is equal to it in force. Once recovered, I took the time to level the blades, no bent shafts, never unplugged the lipo, recalibrate and took off and finished flying the lipo out. I am still flying on the same props since Christmas and I have crashed into chain link fences, walls, polls and terra firma. No bent shafts and never been broken. Not saying it can't be, but you have to want to break it to do so. Mine is unmodded and still flies like new. Love this little quad and it is quite resilient.

Your actually wrong, I just got my x4 today, and it had a little hit to the wall (maybe 1-2 meters off the ground) and one of the motors stopped working.. this is a really cheap quality quad.

Clearly it's your fault as this quad is bulletproof. You should give up quad flying and quit staining the impeccible reputation this quad has.

Is it far better than v202 with a dead motor?
You seem hate too much to Hubsan. Posting everything negative about X4/qr1.
If you have problem with them, better talk to them since you sell their product also rather than attacking in every x4/qr1 threads.

Yes it is, question is the percentage of V202 owners who've killed their motor in a crash or on their second flight.

I am the Yin to your Yang Bangkomit, and any other 'Blinders Full On' propaganda pushers. At least I admit the V202's flaws. How many WL Toys reps have been banned from these forums? How many Hubsan reps have?

Bangkomit, denying the issues only makes you and Hubsan look worse. The truth will set you free. And I'm not attacking every post, only responding negatively to the propaganda ones. May I remind you that I'm the one that came up with the prop-guard band aid that's probably saved Hubsan\Traxxas alot of money in returned quads.

Guess what? This is the first and LAST Hubsan product we will carry. The only Hubsan parts we may carry are the accessories for the unfortunate souls who will have to constanly and often repair their X4's. We've already talked to Husasn, and their sorry offer were some body shells.

No worries though...........the X4 has indeed been cloned (not speaking of the Traxxas rebrand) and I cannot wait for it to come out so we can get a REPUTABLE source for this quad.

Oh yeah...........Hubsan is pissed at us for hurting their sales........so they don't exactly want to talk to us a whole lot.

I really like your paint job. It looks like what my old eys need to allow this quad to utilize more of my yard. What type of paint did you use? I have used flourescent orange on my larger sailplanes but it was never as vivid as your green.

Also, do you think your paint will slow heat exchange or impede motor cooling?

I guess you're in a perfect position to see if there is any real difference having two painted and two unpainted motor cans.

Hi I used pactra RC spray paint i first used the fluressent white backing they have for there fluressant colors then i sprayed there fluressant green over it.

the motors if you want you can pull them out and scrape off the paint with a exacto blade.

I'm suprised the paint adheres so well to the motors that you have to scrape it off. That's pretty good stuff.
