LotusRC T380 ARF Quad - best value ARF sharing thread

Updates from LotusRC: All T380 comes with ONE Year manufacturing warranty.

Sharing here the T380 ARF Quad. Finally got the unit to do a video.

This is a simple video with
- No editing for any enhancement
- No professional video taking as it is just a simple tripod with fix angle
- To show the actual performance of the model

The setup is from the stock setup and recommendaiton:
- 25C 2200mah 3S lipo
- stock prop
- connected to 7channel Futaba radio

Where you can get it:
Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and other selected countries: MultircShop
USA: RotorConcept

Will post more details soon. Please also refer to user manual for additional info.

Flight video with fix angle view:
T380 flight on stock setup with simple and aggressive stick flying (6 min 11 sec)

Note for auto level and calibration:
1. Please only power up the model when T380 is level on ground
2. if with the above, the T380 still shows large drift, follow the video below to recalibrate the Accelerometer

OK... maybe I will request for a support from LotusRC to award a FREE T380 to top 2 most viewed T380 video or top vote from the user here.

So lets start to post your video and how crazy you are on driving this little wonder!
