She'll get a X4 with custom airbrush "Hello-Kitty-Style" and some Svarowsky elements on it as a joke gift on X-mas. (and the jewelry inside the canopy). She may argue about my obsession but I caught her flying some of my Xiedas in secret - guided by my daughter (14)
maybe I'll get her to the dark side like my daughter....

Amazon has them now, through a new guy named JMT TOP 1. $58.99 w free shipping, still from China, arrival date 10/30 - 11/16. I would have ordered the Big Coloring Book of Vaginas to keep me busy until then, but the UDI U816 arrives tomorrow.

Just got mine from Hong Kong
After a first glimpse I can say that there is no structural difference with the V929, except the canopy (which I don't like but this is a question of taste) and of course the lights.
The right button on the TX remains the LEDs switch and thus has nothing to do with autoflip or whatever.
Straight out of the box it flies wonderfully, like the V929, but not better or even differently.
I believe that the main difference between both is cosmetic.
I can barely find any other difference for now.

Pics tomorrow!

I'll do my best:
It has an automatic flipping function. Press the rate change button to 100%, using the top right button (I can't remember if it is actually the left or right button, but I think it is the left). Pull the right stick all the way in one direction and let it go back to center and it will automatically flip. Pay attention to how high you are, if you're not high enough you'll hit the ground.

Yes so he's just mistaken about the button's place.

No blatant difference with the 929 after 5 lipos indoors.
I'm happy anyway, I've got now 3 V929/949, one for indoors flights, one for outside and one "special crashes" for the fun and for spares.

For those of you who have these, how bright are the LEDs? Are they bright enough to be seen in full daylight? Just wondering how effective they'd be at determining orientation in full sunlight...
