for a less spendy option, I would look for a usedhacker A80. I've seen them very recently going for $250-300! bolts right on (don't need a maddog mount, might have to buy some standoffs though). it makes great power and is relatively efficient.
the Q80 is lighter and I believe a bit more powerful and efficient. plus it's new and it looks awesome
. is that worth the bread...for you to decide. please correct me if wrong. (I'm sure when SteveTooo wakes up he will jump in here
Nah...I'm not waking up today....too drugged out..hurt my back during the week, and it has been making my thighs cramp big time, so, ended up in the emergency room last night....Percocet and Flexiril...ever six hours... and yeah.. I jump in even when not needed...
As...to the Q80-8M... with a Mejzlik 24X10TH prop...it has killer power. A very good friend of mine at the club I belong to was there last Saturday when I last flew my Slick, and his first comment to me as I took off (and I didn't really even "punch" it) was... "WOW!! that thing has some power!!"..I only have one flight with that prop, but I can see that it is definitely more efficient than the APC 24X12 I tried, and a ton more power than the 24X10 Xoar I tried....I can't speak to the flight time as I only flew about 3-4 minutes, but even with that, I only took out about 30% out of my FlightMax 30C 6S 5000mAH packs...
