Aside from that I think I will pick one up on Tuesday.
All is well here with two MQXs and over 50 flights for each. I do have spare motors standing by though, just in case. I limit my flights to 8 minutes and allow ample cool down time between flights.

Update:
Horizon Hobby is backordered until the end of March in the BNF version.

I guess I won't be getting one very soon. My hobby store told me they were getting 2 in but they were RTF.

Thanks! I know where to get them if I want one that bad but I have a ton of deals all lined up at my local shop(gift cars, discounts, ect.) and so that would almost double the price. I can wait!

Thanks anyways,

Funrchelis, this has been mentioned before in the thread.
Ask your local hobby store if they will take the transmitter and battery out of
a RTF and sell it to you. Instant BNF. They may say yes and maybe no depending on demand at the time.

Thanks a ton! When I asked them before if they had any they said they had 2 RTF coming in today. I also asked them how long it took last shipment to sell them all out and they said with 4 it took about 5 days.

Yeah! Fpv gear in customs in new York so if it make it thru ( I don't know if USA freqs are locked on the vTX , I should have asked he he, see getting a FCC technician license would have been better first, not six....( a "something about Mary" reference )
mQX is flyin fine, I do see motor hiccups on plus mode, haven't seen any on x mode.
I sure wish I could fly my mCPx this easy he he heck even the x650.

When I changed modes, from a dx8, it happens quick like in 10-12 seconds, but on rtf tx and dx4 tx it always takes 55 sec. To a 90 seconds...is that because of resolution on tx's?
Or could it be power output on tx,s?

Doesn't the BNF version come with the battery?

Yes and that is how I got mine. The guy at the LHS was nice to me.
I guess I have bought enough from him to make him happy.

The only problem with them is they are not always the nicest people. I also have a way of getting them to do it because there are 3 hobby stores in the area. I'll say ok I'll just try HobbyTownUSA.
