No binding with Spektrum. This uses its own radio frequency and can only be flown with the RTF Tx.

It is an awesome quad though!

If you want to fly with your Spektrum, you might wait for the Blade 180QX to come out. I'm expecting it to fly just as nice as this, and you could use your DXwhatever radio with it.

One last flight video before I do my detailed review. This is just a quickie, showing off the "Twister" rudder stunt's virtual heading hold, and some hand launches.

Great review..
That guy really sounds like a fun flyer, but dang the proprietary radio. Shame all these manufactures couldn't adopt AnyLink or something so we don't need to drag a trailer full of radios with us. Not to mention all the AA bats which I won't use anything short of lithium as sure as hell I'll leave the bats in only to find they leaked all over and ruined something, if not lithium.. Grrr..

Maybe they will consider a Tx module if all find it as nice as you seem to. And then it's always possible the Deviation guys can fix us up by adding the protocol. Ah, that's prolly wishful thinking..

Well I need to go check out your X4 FPV review, as that's one of my favs but kinda pricey when it came out. Hopefully they have come down a little.

Many thanks for the reviews, they are always very helpful.

Glad you like my reviews!

I would absolutely love it if radio protocols were standardized. A universal Tx would be a dream come true!

The X4 FPV has come down to just over $150, which I think is a great deal for what it is!
