Those V939's must be flown with aftermarket battery (300 or 260 mAh) to show their full potential.

Stock battery is hmm ... crappy ... not normal for WL Toys.

I have both the v939 and the x100 and would easily recommend the x100 over he v939. It is much more stable and responsive than the v939 even when the v939 is controlled with the 9x. The x100's transmitter is light and feels cheap (it is) but it works well (and only needs 3 AA's)

The Hubsan x4 seems a lot better than the MJX X100 with its 2 gyro sensitivity setting ( normal and expert) and fully customizable aileron, elevator, and rudder sensitivities along with channel reversing.

Hopefully someone gets one to review, it is very hard to trust a manufacturer to be honest about their products nowadays unfortunately.

Especially one with very little track record to base our predictions on. Oh well, every company has to start somewhere and I hope the Hubsan quad will fly as well as it looks

and you are right, if a company accidentally labels coreless motors as brushless motors (regardless of the reason) I would take what they say with a grain of salt.

Think I should be able to do a review on this quad as soon as it is available...THEN we'll see if it's worth buying. I can't wait...it has some big shoes to fill!

If the X100 has manual flips, then why does it have a flip button?

To me they are redundant. Flipping with the stick and flipping with the button feels the same to me.

I think he means manual flips as in combining stick movements and throttle to make it flip rather than either just push a button or move stick to endpoint and the software does a flip.

Manual flips means you can stall it inverted, for example, and watch it fall inverted. Auto flips can't do that. The quad goes full circle automatically.

So which one is it? Auto, I'm guessing?

Both auto...The button and elevator stick movement are just different ways of initializing them... Unlike the manual flips found on the ladybird/hoten x etc.

with manual flips (if the description is correct) you can flip in 4 directions. forward back left right flips with the button its one kind only would be my guess.

I though the benefit of the mjx was that IT had reversing and rates and tuning dials etc.. ?

Gents,
Yep. On the MJX X100 the auto-flip with the "mode button" is always forward. If you set it to the "Pro mode" then with the sticks you can "auto-flip" in any direction.
Cheers,

The manual flips are as Chris described... Basically you could control the quad throughout the flip. You could stop the flip/roll inverted or control the flip/roll rate. These actions are not possible with quads that feature only programmed, automatic flips (Which you have no choice but to let the quad do its thing until it levels out at the end of a flip/roll).

Jim is correct,
The MJX's flip button only flips the quad in one direction while with the stick you could flip it in any direction... But since the user has no control over the flip/roll until the quad is level, these are still considered automatic.
