wow g, that's probably the most horrible looking flying machine I've ever seen! (And yes, I'm counting my slow stick that I accidentally ran over with the car)...
who designs something like that and goes "hmm, that is a fine piece of work, I think my boss would love it and maybe give me a raise for making such an awesome looking thing"? lol

but then again, it could out-fly everything we have here. You never know

Underneath that Toytown camouflage it may be 4 of these things with the tail rotors chopped off and then all glued together in an X.
Then again I doubt it's anything quite so sophisticated.

The picture says it all, he'd rather be seen playing with a phallic symbol than with this quad

Guys, you're joking but the retail price for this beauty is 84$ !!

As they say:
"One of the weirdest flying contraptions we've ever seen"
Lol!

lol, at that price I'm tempted to by a few dozen....

I am eagerly awaiting James or one of the many great reviewers here on the site to review this technological wonder before making such a purchase.

@waveOmatic, I think...I'll pass on this one...even if it's for free...unless I can somehow put a blanket over it and fly it like that. Otherwise it might give me nightmares...and I can only imagine that babies would cry when they look at it and dogs would bark and howl at it :P

Let's play a game called I'd rather

I'll begin

I'd rather set the 84 dollars on fire

I'd rather spend it towards another nano CPX !! (or to bling out the already existing one ... )

Flybars?!!?!?! To ruin everything that is great about the flight experience of a stable quad. They should call it the ugly windsurfer. Maybe this one has no stablization. Can you imagine?

All boys start playing with their phallic symbols sooner or later, but that's might be a tad too early.

just sharing some pics of my 816. changed the canopy to see the leds. lighter too. then sticked some styro adhisived dots at the bottom of the motors. and tidied up the wire connections. no wonder it has short range look at the tx antena wire.

Now that's what I'm talking about. Finally a micro quad under $100 that has a true hobby grade look to it.

I think they got so tired of all of the depressed, happy, grumpy, crazy, goofy, narcoleptic bug faces they said let's just toss caution to to the wind and take it to a whole new level.

I bet next we'll see one made from what looks like an erector set (that would actually be pretty cool)

I have a feeling these will be showing up at Kohl's and JC Penney's anyday now with a original price of $160 and 50% off.

Quit picking on that quadcopter. It'd be funny if it had brushless motors under it and a dji naza fc . It may be the equivalent of the Cat-Copter, with only a playful exterior.

And furthermore, those flybars may actually be advanced proximity sensors. I wouldn't even be surprised if Warthox didn't even have a hand in its design.
