I can say this is definitely visible at night and it flies well. Actually flying in the dark and not just dusk is somewhere past 4 minutes.

After playing with it at the LHS over the weekend we threw together a quick review. What a great little quad.

I finished eating dinner with my family last night and after cleaning up, I stuck my head outside. It was still light out. Cloudy, but no wind and plenty of time to fly. Time to keep some charged batteries lying around. I did have two ready to go, so the Adagio and UMX Icon it was. The best part was how green the grass was at the field. When I was there last week it was still brown.

Here is the latest video from my LHS. If you are looking at FPV, he goes into what options are available and explains a lot. Enjoy!

When I walked into the LHS this weekend two of the regulars were drooling over a used IMax B6 Duo with a MaxAmps 12V 575W 47A power supply. They spent too much time drooling and I picked it up with the PS for $100 as a spare. After charging my Q500 batteries ( at 1C from a balance charge in only 45 minutes, it found a spot on the charging table instead of the travel box where I was going to put it. I dedicated 2 ports on the HiTec X4 to the the E-flite 3 wire balance/charge combo leads for the backyard batteries. I didn't realize how much these would improve my charge times on the larger lipos at 1C, but if the X4 ever goes I am getting another HV charger. I have to charge a 6S 5000 mah for the CZC this weekend. I'm hoping that is under an hour at 1C too.
