Nope. BNF without battery.

Nice bird, it seems to fly well and is very well designed IMO. Love it!:

This can't possibly be, no way
MX400S, QR X400, are they real or is walkera just testing the waters to see if they can be sold?
I, for one have the MX 400 with 6 axis giro already I can say that compared with the LadyBird and the Hoten X is way less stable. But it is software upgradable (I bought the tool). There is no way I am going to buy another one, not even the control board. I will buy two blade rotors, fancy canopies, even better motors, but that's all.

To walkera: fix the dammed MX400 before trying to sell improved versions. otherwise you are cheating your customers and we know it.

Two more things to take into account:
1) Flipping this quad is probably the fastest way to spend money in buying spares
2) All telemetry stuff, including the gps stuff and excluding the battery voltage, is absolutely useless. Who can look at the display and control the quad same time?

I may be wrong but in the video the QR X400 seemed the same size as the MX 400. And it doesn't make sense a 3s 2200 mA battery in a quad smaller that the Hoten X.

It's not smaller actually 270 cm vs 266 for the Hoten.
I agree with you that the whole telemetry thingy is pure BS. So is the upgrade capability (Wakera doesn't release more than 1 upgrade per product).
I think this new quad is a Hoten X with more power.
Shouldn't be bad!

This QR X400 only have CANOPY and skid landing different from the MX400S. Other parts are compatible with the MX400S .
Walkera released MX400S to improve the motor of the MX400 and 3D capability . Always do this .

Yeah, they always do this... but then again, that's what many companies do unfortunately...from electronics to cars... The New (insert product name) is XX percent lighter XX percent more powerful than it's predecessor... etc

Well, according to One01, same size as the MX400S actually.
I wonder if one has to unmount the blades (what a hassle!) to use the case or not.
Any info on that?

I am pretty sure this is the same size as the MX400. That measurement is an error in walkeras site that everyone has copied. The spares are the same!

My MX400 diagonal is 50 cm motor to motor or 73 cm tip of blade to tip of blade.
