Made from the top of a Tuscan Garden Vinegar bottle. The holes were made with a soldering iron. Weights 3 grams more than the original and is tough as a $2 dollar steak. The hole in the top makes it easy to pick up and launch.

They are PNP, but they are not pre-installed!

Also, you have to paint it yourself, check the fourth photo on the eBay page.

In case anyone is wondering like myself, what color of the rear light was - its blue. I couldn't tell from the eBay picture, but I found some more here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...9095866&type=3

Hybrid Mqx


Built a hybrid- MQX board, Ladybird struts and motors. Needed better visual for orientation. This is what I came up with. Real nice flyer.

Nice find. I ordered it, and now I'm brainstorming colour schemes...

Any ideas? General Lee? Gold?

Hey Guys!
I donīt know if you American Guys also know those "Kinder-Joy" Surprise Eggs
we know in Germany. A great and cheap way to get a new cool looking canopy.

I got one on my mQX/Ladybird Hybrid. The sound of the little thing reminded me much of an swarm of beeīs. So i made an "Maja The Bee" canopy.

Itīs also fun on the original mQX as you can see there

I think this is pretty cool, so i made one similar to that
Now i can fly my mQX in diverent styles.
How about that idea

mQX Mods


Mods to my mQX: (a) High intensity front and back LEDs powered by a separate 150 mah LiPo helps me figure out orientation better when flying in the dusk. (b) Shock absorbing zip ties that double as "lifters" which is useful when flying the mQX in the park so grass don't reach the motors/props area.
