Probably is photoshop, that's why it looks photoshoped!

But was taken straight from Walkera in China site! http://www.walkera.com/en1/particula...pn=QR_Ladybird

That's also why I only said flips and loops, but you could say then halfway round a loop or a flip it is technically inverted!! Unless you know otherwise?

Have you realized, that the size in the specs changed from 10x10cm to 8.5x8.5cm?

hehe... walkera loyalty is a feverish obsession with which i have filled my days. walkera is frustratingly badass. you can't find anything else in the micro class that even compares. and the price??? eflight, or whatever -- horizon hobby -- is like the microsoft of RC. whole stores filled with all the brand-lines for every type of hobby product. and that's all. Every single LHS is filled with this plastic proprietary junk, and it costs a FORTUNE... an mCP isn't even flyable or cool until you buy all the modded stuff for it, like CF frame, metal parts (or at least just rubber-bands?). you're talking like $500 by the end for a bada$$ mCP. walkera has my loyalty through and through. i've only been disappointed by anything spectrum anyways (save parkzone!). i have a DX5e just for that. otherwise, who needs any other radios than wk?

That they have made a few improvements to maneuvering [flips/rolls], it will do a little more that the #8...
Overall...looks nice. I like the DD props. That was the one real bugger with the #8. That the booms/motors are P-N-P...so what.
anyone got an AUW on this thing?

KodakJack,
marker lights help immensely. Night flying is fun and easy/er. 1Hammer is/was making some VERY light weight light sets and the current draw is negligible.

regards,
Bill

So where can this thing be bought then? It looks even better than the MQX. Heck, this one is so small you could almost hide it in my jacket pocket.

It bugs the heck out of me that Walkera makes you buy a new transmitter for this thing. How many does the average pilot need? The quad is $79 and the transmitter is $50. It won't even fly with a 2801?!!!! At least the MQX will fly on any Spektrum transmitter.
Bill, I have a guy asking if I'll trade my CB-100 for an MQX. A trade will save me from spending money on one and leave that money for a possible second quad if I like it.

Looks like Tony has to adjust something on his cus he said he cant flip it.
I cant believe how little it drops during a flip.

You're going to have to get rid of stuff in your store to hold all of the stuff you fly.

Maybe his is a pre-production and they've tweaked the firmware? Would be nice if it used a 5th ch as a flight mode switch between normal flight and basic 3D
