Hello all,
Just wanted to share a bit more of my impressions and thoughts of my U807.This is a nice low price alias clone.As iI mentioned before after a few great flight I had a motor burn out.Gearbest kindly sent me a full set of replacement motors.changed out the burnt one,flew great a few,times then it started drifting to the left,I compensated with trim,then it started doing a slow yaw spin counterclockwise,did all calibrations a few times same results.I changed out theother 3 motor s thinking the new one may be overpowering the old onew.Dame thing let yaw rotation.weitd.Any thoughts/II hate to give up on it as I had some nice flights.Might buy another one if I see a good sale regardless. as

Here is a flight I took the other day with my Syma X8c,park startted to get a bit crowded so I had to wrap it up.Safety first .I will be scouting out some less populated flying spots shortly.

I think I will be ordering my next quadcopter from tgearbest new u.s. warehouse.Looks like they have a bunch of batteries and motors available as well.That will be nice to have much faster shipping.I need some spare batteries now actually.here is the link to purchase http://www.gearbest.com/promotion-us...rryuswarehouse

I have been looking into getting a fpv setup on one of my quadcopters.I see gearbest has a big selection of fpv gear to choose from.I will be doing some research on this ,they have a number of things to choose from.Here is a link to the promotion I see they have going on now http://www.gearbest.com/promotion-fp...ryfpvpromotion

I am a big fan of both MJX and SYMa quadcopters,they have been the most reliable of this grade I have bought.Now I see MJX has A larger scale quadcopter available,ordered it instantanly.looks liked an syma x8 competitor for sure,maybe a cross betwen the x8 and an x6 tarantula.never owned the taranula,but if this x101 ptoves to be as nice as my other MJX copter,this should be awsome!more to come ,waiting on the arrival.till then,best place to buy I have found http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopte...3039.html.more to come soon

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to share a bit of todays flying with my Huiying X6058,hoped to do a good review of this on this flight,but ended in a cooked motor.No wotties gives me a opportunity to make a repair video now! This looks as it will be as easy as my U807 to swap motors,almost looks like the same motors but i will share a repair video when I get that done.Till Then My MJX X400 has an extra battery for use.If only they could get the high rate on the mjx without auto flip.still my MJX X400 is my favorite.Looking to get the fpv camera for my mjx quads,but thats another story for anotherday.happy flying and happy r/c everyone.oh yeah my review

so I have had this for a week now,first video I did was a short night flight and this looks great at night.Now I have had it out during the day to test its maneuverability,it is pretty good however this model seems to have less aggressive pitch and roll as others also seems to cut out on throttle a bit when I decrease throttle,which I also have heard that that is the case with some,bummer.It is still a good quadcopter but if I am to compare it to my Nihui Toys U807 the U807 is the winner in maneuverability .here is a little video of it in action .

Hello,all.After a long wait I at last have my U807 operational.With only having flown it maybe three timesI had a motor burn out,Gearbest.com sent me a full set of replacement orders free of charge,thanks Gearbest!
This is the easiest motor swap I have done so far on a quadcopter,I was finished well before my battery was even ready to test it.
Now I can get out and have some fun with this little quadcopter and I have Three backup motors ready ,hope the first one was a fluke as this is a fun quadcopter to fly but I have motors on hand now so fingers crossed.Here is a short video of some of the repair work and test flight,
