I felt a little put off with it at first but then flew it a couple times and shifted between V929 andU 816. After a couple flights I had it doing what V929 was doing..flying pretty good. You just need to go easy on controls, big careless movements get it into trouble. Advantages of this are two batteries and usb cord is same type as V911 so match up to power block is easy.
Well you're certainly right, we are entitled to our own opinions. Me personally, I can't see this flying anything like the v929....and that's pretty good. You speak of the u816 not being a co-ax yet suggest it be controlled with real easy movements which means it's flyng like a co-ax at near hover. If not, I would love to see you post a video flying this craft in a tight space like the v929, doing simple little box turns with no crashes for 1 whole minute. I have put in over 30 flights with the u816 and yes, it flies if you don't try to push it......but if I wanted a craft to just float
around my room or outside, I would indeed get a co-ax.
The fact that it comes with two batteries is irrelevant when the u816 is what it is in my opinion.
