You are able to make manual loops/rolls - it depends on skill only.

Overall it is imho the better programmed design - it teaches you more than a V929 may ever is able to offer you - and behaves a lot more like a CP heli, what may become important if you want to step up a bit.

As I know your intention only to buy machines that are flyable with your 9x - I can give you a hint:
Get a ORX DSM module (have one, too - works flawless with the mQX)
a MQX spare PCB and a MQX central hub. (30+33+4= 67 USD for the package) The rest you may take from your V9X9 - just PM and I'll guide you through.
You will NOT miss the V's

Thanks mate, I was thinking about the same... ....just wasnt sure about how flawless is the Orange TX / 9X combo...

But it is a MUST to change to anopther FW like ER9x - using the DSM protocol with a bricked RX you have to change the channel assignment in the TX.
And I may be able to give you my ready to use Eepee-file with triple rates settings for the MQX

Here's another example of the mQX's agility. Having some fun in the yard with the mQX:

More fun in the yard with the mQX - FFF, aerobatics, spot-landing on the deck railing (3 min 20 sec)

EDIT: ok, after I have watched Tom's great flying video I think I'have got the answer.... I had watched before only lame hoovering videos, and havent realized that much differences...but this...well done bro!
I wasn't ragging on TomQ..I am sure by now he has gotten much, much better at flying and I would love to see some new vids...

I don't have a V929, which might be lighter and thus more punchy, but my 949 UFO does not have the punch of the mqx. If you descend too quickly and want to punch it before you hit the ground, forget it, it will touch the ground. The 959 with the camera is even heavier.

Hello fellas,
I have the MQX but have been looking at the V949 as a possible gift for my great nephew, who is 9 years old. Is it docile enough for him to handle? Of course, he is a gamer so the reality is he'll probably fly the props off it.....

You may buy it. It is stable enough to let him take some easy steps.
4 times adjustable rates offer some possibilities for it, too.
And if You are really lucky you even may get a V949 from the first batch that do NOT autoflip at max stick movements but have a button for it.

I built hundreds of 3500W 928/929 MHz paging sites on towers, skyscrapers, apartment buildings, and water towers across the country. We were the first wireless provider to be licensed for 3500W operation in the 900 MHz band. Due to the extremely high power, I had to investigate & solve thousands of RFI issues. Given that even the best commercial-grade 902 MHz receivers need external RF filters the size of 5-pound coffee cans to handle that much power at such a close frequency, I doubt that any 915 MHz RC receiver front-end would be able to handle a nearby 929 MHz paging transmitter without going into full front-end overload. If I were living where 900 MHz paging systems are rare - such as in a rural area or smaller town, I wouldn't be so concerned. But I built 79 929 MHz 3500W paging sites just within the greater metro area around here. And we weren't the only provider doing build-outs.

I have an RCLogger Eye coming my way next week....looks promising.

I think it's a great idea. It's very docile at low rate. But it's like a real heli. He needs to learn to hover and hold it in one place first.

I had one come apart after a major crash, but that's it so far. For reference - I've got about 50 hrs on the bird.
