MK Quadro XL or Hexa

I almost placed my order for the MK Hexacopter and the i noticed that they have started selling the Quadro XL.

Maybe this is the way to go rather than buying the hexa, less motors, esc, propellers and so on.
30 min flighttime, 1 kg payload.......

Maybe the hexa will be more stablet?

Pros and cons?!?!

Certainly got the power. On-board footage is not too good, then again he's not being too gentle with the sticks.

If 1kg is what you will be lifting I would say go with the quad xl. there was a vid with simon flying one and it seem to be stable for Ariel videos.

Thanks for the answers.

Why would the hexacopter be the way to go?

Is it moore stable when flying? or can it lift moore weight?.

I like the idea with the quad xl because of less parts on it, but maybe that dosent matter......
