WOW! 7-10min charge!? That's insanely fast.

Tower Hobbies sold out pretty fast. Not sure if any other stores got the chance to grab any for their own stock.

Thanks for the confirmation on the mode... that is good news.

A few of us just picked some up at the LHS. They fly great! A little touchy at first, but it's easy to get used to. The instructions don't say anything about dual rates, but the two sticks have a click down action like the small E-flite (Blade) transmitters do.

I'll try to figure out what the stick clicks do. Only flew it once so far.

Clicks don't do anything. Have fun with it! I have a blast just flying it around the kitchen.

I wonder how it compares in size and flying qualities to my RC Fly?

Hopefully those PCB legs hold up.

Didn't see this in any of the specs listed. Is the gyro 3 or 6 axis? Can anyone tell by how it flys?

The box references "a gyro", but no specifics. I just got done flying it though, and I'm going to guess it's 6-axis, because it auto-levels really quickly and the pirouettes are very clean.

This thing flies great!

How much fly time for you? How much charge time for you? Does the body pop off easily (to change batteries)? Soldered, or connector?

Wrong. They add a clicking sound

Agree. The self leveling kicks in as soon as you let go of the cyclic. It does seem like 6 axis.

Haven't gotten to the timings yet.

The canopy does come off… not exactly easily… there are tiny little clips that I was afraid of breaking, but it does appear to be intended to be removable.

The battery is a 100mAh LiPo, and it has a connector, which was a nice surprise. Wasn't expecting that!
