What I can say though is, that it flips (IMHO) better than my UDI (seems to even do multiple flips without gap ...) and for a single flip it would probably need only about 2or 3 foot high (as opposed to the 7 ft the UDI needs)
Of course, the fact that I cannot read a manual and have to figure all these buttons and knobs out by trial and error, does not really help the cause either.

But as far as the quads that I tried up to now are concerned, for me it is the best of all the micros I tried! (even the ladybird V2 I would rate below this one)

Hopefully someone else who can read chinese and also has more experience in flying quads will soon be able to chime in and also help me to figure the little tricks of this TX out ...

Thanks Erd! I'm encouraged by your thoughts on it & mine will also be here soon to test out!

caveat:
to me it felt as if it may be possible this thing will do multiple flips without gap, but according to MJX and the vendors, it is not!
I STILL like it best of the ones I currently have (micros I mean)

Can someone check if the u816 can bind to a 9x Tx or v911/v929 Tx?

This question is because the u816 has the best RTF price (36.95$ at BangGood), and it comes with 2 batteries and a dual charger - And its Tx looks very similiar to the v911/v929 Tx.

I think it will have a performance boost with 9x radio...

2 booms clockwise

AS3x 4in1 Flightcontrol

That's it
Thank you for the info!
I think I'm going to build this.
I have 4 SR120 batteries so I'm good to go on that.
Guess I'll get a couple of paper canopies.

A,
Unfortunately it is a proprietary protocol and will not bind to the v911 Tx. I have also tested FrSky and Spectrum binding with no results. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...0&postcount=51
Cheers,

I did my canopy like this:
Cut of a piece from a water bottle
Applied some masking tape
Put spray paint on
That's it

That is cool chris - but, what type of water bottle did you use?

That's pretty cool with the Candian leaf.

This is probably my favorite idea I've seen so far in creating a canopy for one of the mqx/ladybird hybrids. So clean and simple.

I like the see-thru top. Much more sexier that way. Seriously, I like the way it exposes the electronics while protecting them. Shows that this "toy" is really a complex machine. Still amazed how cheap this really is.

What amazes me is more people don't know about it. I see questions on HeliFreak...where the person is trying to decide between a FP and a quad. But wasn't sure. He could have gotten both the v911 and v929 and still come under budget. Nobody ever gives those newbies the option or heads up. Possibly because they are bias and never gave these cheap clones a chance. And the people who do gets a lecture and accused of being a communist. (I am serious!) I can understand their point of view...but leave it up to the newbie to choose. Present all the pros/cons and leave it up to the person asking the question to decide for themselves. Every heli has it's pros and cons IMHO.

true that. specially about the v911/v929 combo. highly recommended for anybody starting out as a good way to learn the ropes w/o ending up in the poor house. its sad the money ive seen wasted because beginners listen to bad advice. they tend to follow people they have romantic attachment to rather than those who tell the truth.
