What do I need besides the Blade mQX? I have a SPEKTRUM DX7 Transmitter and tons of Electric RC equipment, both Helicopter and Airplane stuff. I also have a few of the HD Key Chain Camera's. I know I will need extra Batteries, are the stock one's ok? What parts will I need in case of a crash? I like the Orange Props, they look good on the front. I am also going to order the MQX Fighter Canopy from Sparks. I am sure by using my DX7, there will be an advantage in flight control over the included Transmitter. I plan on getting the BNF or what ever they have in stock. Any advice will be appreciated
Get at least 2 extra booms (they get little cracks after crashes and stability is impacted), 2 extra gears (they pop off if you crash hard and can be a bit hard to find) and a few of the little bearings (a gear pops off and you'll lose at least the bottom bearing).
I've yet to lose a motor but you may or may not want both a CW and CCW....although I don't think you'll kill one of those in the next couple of flights.
Speaking from experience....
