Here is a video Of some flight footage I took over the weekend flying the MJX X101 with the SJ400action camera hooked on.I was curious to see how well the X101 would fly with this camera attached.No problem I think I will do some more tweaking on the mount setup but other than that this quadcopter flies fine with an action camera.

Here is a quadcopter that has been on my wish list for a while and now I see it on a clearance sale here http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopte...529.html?wid=1 selling for about $37,wich I think is close to half price.From what I have seen this looks to be a really nice flyer.Nice size for taking anywhere also has 1mp camera on this version.Now to decide blue or red?

As fall rolls in I look to my ground vehcles for some fun road racing.I was checking this one out to get into a fast brushless motor setup.Looks really good,never heard of the manufactuer but other brushless setup I have seen sell for more than twice as much.Might grab this one up http://www.gearbest.com/rc-cars/pp_235839.html

Hey Everyone!

I was out having fun with this little quadcopter from the MJX line of R/C goodies.This is the X500.Much like the X400,same battery,controller,motors as well,but the design seems to enable it to cut through the air more efficiantly than the X400(which flys great as well.So far so good with this quadcopter.Here is a video of some flying I have been doing with it.Happy flying

Hello my R/C Friends, Beautiful day out so I took the opportunity to get out and fly the new D97 FPV Quadcopter.I am pleasantly surprised at how well it flysIt has 3 rates beginner,intermediate and advanced.Yaw is not changed but pitch increased nicely .II must say I am impressed with how this handled wind as it is a bit breezy out today.The D97 does better in the wind than my Syma X5C. As for the FPV,it works ok,probably best to use for lining up aerial pictures and video to take,which is quit handy actually.I experienced a 3 second delay but I have seen better on newer devices as my smartphone is near done(see video haha).I look forward to trying this with a new smartphone as it is a nice flyer and I find the FPV it offers enjoyable.Here is some footage of my flight earlier,once I get a more capable phone I will post on board footage in future videos

Hello All,
pretty cool quadcopter i had delivered yesterday,the MJX X500 Did a little fly around inside with it,taking it outside today .Really stable inside.Kinda windy out today so this will be a good test on its wind handling ability,but with its compact design I think it will be a great windy day flyer.

The SHENGKAI D97 Quadcopter just arrived today courtesy of gearbest.com for me to review.This is a FPV enabled quadcopter similar to the Syma X5sw .So far I downloaded the FPV app to my phone and got that all set up.Did a quick indoor flight to,I have a relatively cheap phone andI think that caused a bit of lag but I will also try the app on another device and see if lag is improved as the quadcopter itself puts out a good wifi signal.Lots more testing to do overall with this but my initial impression is this is a good buy to get a feel for the FPV experience at a low price.I will have review and flight videos coming soon.Here is a link to check one out http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopters/pp_226091.html

Here is a new mini quadcopter from Xin Lin called the X165.Nice looking quadcopter,similar style to some newer quadcopter I have seen lately.Looks to be direct drive motors to the props.Comes in white and black.Black one looks really cool,in my opinion.Has some cool looking "eyes"leds also.Think I may get this one fopr an indoor flyer http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopters/pp_236238.html

Hi All,
So this is one of those quadcopters I REALLY like.The MJX X101.IT is big,very close to the Syma X8C(which I plan to do some comparison videos of)It appears to use the same tx as all other mjx I own(x400,and x600 hex and hopefully the x500,still on a boat, which I believe is a bnf)but this big quad copter has some nice pitch to it,and power.Only flown it twice so more to come.Here is a short video I made earlier,check it out
