Question
Christmas Present for Me

Been reading the threads - can't wait to get a quad for Christmas. Santa (my wife) needs to know what to buy. I saw the UFO5 but I was wondering if there is a sturdier/more powerful out-of-the-box model out there. Once I learn the ropes, I'm gonna build me one for the next lifting contest!

Your suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Witespy quad for sure: http://witespyquad.gostorego.com/quads.html

The frame is from http://www.hoverthings.com and is just one tough, quality frame.

Regards,
John

Wow, love it. I didn't have a budget in mind but I thought I could get something for about $250 now and then move up to a nicer rig in the future.

But, it looks like I can get the nicer rig now for only a couple hundred bucks more.

Thanks for the recommendation.....I'll be posting after Christmas!

I talked my wife into getting it for me early - like next week. I am going to Germany and would love to fly it there. I sent an email on the hoverthings web site but don't know how often they check their account. Any other way of contacting them or another dealer who sells a completed kit?

when did you send a message? tom is very fast in responding.

I build the kits, so you can contact me too.

Tom (hoverthings) lives close to me.
