I see a new Tararntula is out,or at least a version of it,The Tarantula No. 1505 http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopte...bjo0004o402nkz
I am curious how this one compares to the original.

I figured since I'm going to draw on my quadcopters anyway(yes I registered with the FAA this past weekend)Might as well put my youtube/facebook handle thing on it as well,even though the X8 is a big quadcopter you run out of space fast for graphics haha

I placed an order for the JJRC JJ - 1000 this weekend http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopters/pp_165870.html.I bought a bnf version and to use my Tarantula X tx on it.I was looking for something small for indoor flying but also good for outdoor use.From reviews I have seen this looks like a pretty good quadcopter,I will see for myself soon

Anybody check this quadcopter out? X1.I am considering getting one as it has brushless motors and have been looking into stepping up to a brushless setup and this one seems to be the most affordable one I have seen so far.Looks promising http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopte...ign=shareasale
