This thing looks awesome and has power for days. Black is beautiful . I was a bit nervous to put this one in the air the first time, because I had so much trouble with the Furibee X140. Out of the box it just wanted to flip to its death; I was able to fix it though (well sort of). But...the Darkmax flies great right out of the box. This sucker has tons of power (I know everyone says that about everything, but I really mean it) and I started to think, "Is there a such thing as too much power?" I was only flying on a 4S battery and this thing accommodates up to 6S....that is nuts. Full throttle and this thing disappears into the sky. I have tested 4 Furibee drones thus far and I'm 2 of 4 now with having good success with them. The X215 Pro is great, but it did require some TLC. The Fire Dancer had a bad motor shaft and I already mentioned the X140. The ones that are good are really good though.

I have flown Eachine's E010 and E013, but I consider the QX65 as their first proper tiny whoop.

Also, check below for a link to a tutorial on how to setup the QX65 with Project Mockingbird PIDS and settings.

Are Refurbished DJI Drones Worth it? | Refurbished DJI Phantom 4 (8 min 24 sec)

I looked really hard for blemishes and obvious signs of use. The questions I had prior to buying a refurbished Phantom 4 included: What kind of warranty do you get? What happens if something is wrong with it when I get it? I try to answer some of those questions with this video.
