This may be strange but I just fly mini Quads. After a few months both my V929's are doing very well. Also my little U 816 is fine. Last week recieved my Walkrea Y-6 Scorpion with Devo 7 TX. What a blast it is to fly. Quick/ agile/ fast/ percise control with a real Radio. I have 600ma batteries for V929 but don't need them as stock ones give plenty of airtime. The Y-6 gets over five minutes and sure it will go longer but its new and taking it easy on it. What a nice unit. The U 816 is a slider and find TX kinda junky. I belive the quad is good but TX is big drawback. Blades pop off at slightest impact. I am going to use Walkrea Ladybird blades on it and see if any help. Its still fun.

4 grams for a frame? What quad is that? That's lighter than a kk board. A ladybird's frame is far heavier than 4 grams. I'm curious....

thanks. and djdavies83, another active participant here, has cut the weight almost in half again by designeing a foam frame for the same gear.

Heavy? The difference in weight is a fraction of the difference between two different brands of batteries. Weight is utterly insignificant, unless you want to use it on a mini quad less that 150mm, and then again, the wight would not really be noticeable.

Multiwii, on the other hand, now that is a major pain in the butt. You need a computer at the flying field to fine tune it, and you'd better spend a good few hours reading up on it before you even go near the GUI settings.

I just got my X100 yesterday. Others have said this was one of the best of the micro-quad clones and I definitely agree. The transmitter is surprisingly not that bad. This quad was what I was hoping the V939 would be like. If it were 9x compatible it would be (IMHO) the perfect clone.

Looks like we both got them the same day! I love it! I agree about the Tx one of the best I've ever got with the cheap RTF's. Only 3 AA batteries too! The sticks are terrific like one of my more expensive Tx's. I love the way this little guy flies

MJX X100 or V939 ? Which one is better?

Guys..I already have a v929 for months and now im thinking to grab a smaller quad. Being geared and so with lower head speed, the v929 doesnt handy breeze very well (but still much better than my v911) especially when it get caught by the wind from underneath or opposite direction during fast forward...it might just turned up side down like a turtle. From the reviews and feedback, it seems that mjx is one of the best cheap quad available. But how abt the v939? Izit on par with the mjx or perhaps better?

As much as I love WLToys, i must say that the MJX X100 is a winner in terms of performance in its class of quadcopters. I do not think that you will be disappointed at all. I personally have not tried the 939 but MJX X 100 is amongst the best Micro quads that I have ever tested and I highly recommend it.
