Look if the antenna wire is 31mm - it is the best possible length.

As Mike said, on 2.4ghz you don't want a longer antenna. Doing so would cause your signal strength to be drastically reduced.

For those that have done some hacking and modding on these quads I have a question:

What are the challenges of taking a pcb from a small direct drive quad and putting it into a larger gear-driven quad. I don't just mean mounting differences, but does the gyro compensate properly, etc.

For example putting a v939 board into a v929 or, in my case, a x100 into x200.

regards . . . g

I know putting a v929 rx on a v939 works, I reckon the other way should work too, with perhaps slightly different flipping dynamics.

My mate found this one. I think this could be a better deal as it comes with spare props, battery, charger, free shipping to UK.

If you missed the ebuyer deal this dont look to bad as it has spare props and battery

That is of course if you want one?

Not sure I would trust DS4U.

Funny, they are selling the X4 and blue Traxxas version. Ha.

Thanks for the heads up on this company. I have not had any dealings with them.
I ordered 1 from Ebuyer and when I contacted my mate Jeff and told him, he ordered 2. This was all before 0930 this morning.

Anybody else got the same mail from BANGGOOD? Asking to pay an extra 10$ for the V202? I didn't receive anything or hear from them since Sunday.
