Yes!finally atfer a number of days with rain and bad weather I was able to get out and fly my Walkera Runner 250 this afternoon I am really liking this one!It is my first brushless motor quadcopter setup and I think it is a great transitional quadcopter from flying the toy grade quads I learned on( and still fly all the time)I don't feel it's a full on brushless race quad but that's fine for now,it is a really good quad to get into fpv race style quads for sue.I have been flying line of sight for the moment,getting a feel for the Runner,which feels great by the way.I have a set of Eachine vr 007 goggles ordered to try flying in fpv perspective,really looking forward to that Things are shaping up to be a really fun flying season around here

Yay,got to fly my Runner 250 for the first time todayWind was a bit gusty but things went well.This is my first brushless quadcopter so I was pretty excited to see how this performed over the "toy grade" flyers I am used to and I will say I love it Going to need more stick time to get really good with it but this is a good one to transition from toy grade to racer in my opinion.Also recently ordered some Eachine vr 007 goggles to get started with fpv flying .Really looking forward to full on flying season

I had hoped to fly my Walkera 250 today but after a windy and wet splash session my son and I had flying our MJX X400 and SJ X300 in our regular and now heavily thawing flight spot, I decided it was not the conditions I wanted to try my first flight with the Runner in
I was however pleased to see my Eachine H8 mini was delivered today so I got in some fun indoor flying with that little quadcopter

Hi Group,Great to be part of this forumI have been flying quadcopters for a while now and they are a blast,however I would like to get a small plane now.After watching some of the efest footage it has really opened my eyes to the possibility's electric planes offeri am curious and would appreciate any advise to a decent small electric plane to start out with.Love my quads for sure and now getting into an fpv quadcopter but planes are really nice and very efficient flyers as I understand,love to add some planes to my hangar

So,once the weather gets above zero degrees outside I will be doing a
comparison between these two quadcopters,the MJX X400 and the SJ X300.Both fun flyers,time to do a side by side comparison
