"Dear Customer

Well I've had a bad day with the X4 today. I tried flying it a little more and after a few hard landings, the motors started to bind and it's gotten to the point where I had to replace 2 of the motors to keep it flying (ordered 8 more, going to replace all 4 at once when they arrive).
So, the motors with absolutely no padding underneath is a bad design I think.

Then as I was flying, one of the blades let go and the quad crashed again...not being able to find the missing blade, I replaced 2 of them with ones from the QR Ladybird (replacing all 4 made it unstable for some odd reason).

It's not really that durable (as of right now) in my opinion, the others could stand much more abuse than what my X4 has been through so far.

Blades literally flew off the shaft or broke? Are they hard to put on / take off? Motors are binding internally sort of like the chicken-dance thing some bad V911's had or binding against the blade, or from impacts from the bottom of the motors since they're exposed.......is there visible damage on the bottoms of the motors from impacts? Thanks.

Hi, On its way to you this week, you should have it by early next week.

Remember the PM, there are other new models to review.

Watch this space, Directsource4u

Regards
Hey thank you very much. I apologize if I sounded rude. I am sure with all of the sales and other new models it has been busy. I guess I shouldn't have assumed just because I never heard anything it wasn't happening. I guess with some people already receiving them it might have been decided to leave out the opportunity. Which I would have understood, so please forgive me. I look forward to having this in my hands and giving a full fledge review. Thanks again.

Jamie

James, where the heck are you ordering spare parts already?
Man, you are really blessed with a direct pipeline to manufacturers *envy*
Want to order spares, too - I'm sitting in germany - seems to be on the wrong shore of the great oceans....
