What to buy?. Difficult to say. But wouldn't go for the Sux-300-2 from GB, as they have admitted they don't have any in red or white. I bet the same goes for loads of other stuff. Cant say am over chuffed.

M18 arrived yesterday. Its a cool quad, but NOT a sports flyer. Only 2 speeds, with a Syma X8 style "You have applied rearward pitch, but am going to keep on trucking until the inertia stops" flight mode.

The first quad i have owned (Including my GPS stuff) that flies for so long you actually get bored. Totally superb lights tho!.

Frankenquad !

Damn SUX 300 - 2 was high on my list. Let's see, between micro and mini, sporty, good range, good LEDs. Cool looking even quirky. Something 'different' in some way.

Maybe someone else has the SuX 2. I have a feeling you know, they cant make this stuff fast enough to fulfill demand. Did you ever pick up the Captn America crazy quad?..forget what it called.

Nah, FFRC's review described a few problem issues for me. That super fast yaw was cool on the first quad I got that had it but the novelty sure wears off quick.

Yu Xiang 668-A3 Quick Review (7 min 37 sec)


I'm actually surprised he says it's a nice quad after pointing out the throttle dropouts, LED problems, gyro problems, headless and RTH problems, battery cage problems etc etc. At what stage do you say "It's broken don't buy it" ?

Yea, saw the little video of this. Cool. Those esc's and motors must be working overtime to overcome the water drag. Interesting concept. I thought the Aviax H2O did all that?.

Will keep an eye out for something interesting for you. What about one of those Weird Cheerson jobbies (Tricopter)?. Live dangerously?

It seems free quads means more forgiving of issues that are a deal breaker for me? Not impugning he's reputation just that when you buy it, wait 4 weeks and it has that many issues, I wouldn't be impressed. My review would be park it in a tree and walk off.

+1, if i was ever asked to do a review, i would honestly end by saying "Its rubbish", or "Its great, buy it". As you say, there is always the thank you factor built in.

What about this for a cheapy. Think the price has gone down lately. IF they have it.

Maybe you have got to the stage a nice 250 fpv brushless monster is on the agenda?.

Have always liked TFF, but now you mention it...
