Thank you. So close though.

That soon? You haven't even had a proper chance to do a flight review yet.

Hope to see more pictures/reviews of the X252 as well as I'm not sure which I'd like more. I enjoy LOS and some night flying, so X251 seems more suited for that based on the lights under the motors. But the X252 description does say, "With LED lights: Makes it more dazzle beautiful and colorful night light." So maybe it too would fit the bill, but lack of pictures make it unclear.

Edit: I spoke too soon as I found some LED pics in this thread. Not clear if one is a definite winner in LOS night flight, but certainly increases my interest in the X252.

Way to go Seby. Now waiting for your full review on this. Do remember to test out if there is any inverted flying function

There is no inverted flying feature ....

But it's crash resistant ))))

Wow that is one powerful quad. Cant really see any drawbacks on this one. Good that it does not suffer from yaw lag as on the JJRC X1. Inverted flying feature would be a nice addition however I am totally fine without it. Overall I think this quadcopter offers a complete package for its users.

I notice the battery bay is a screw on type and not part of the bottom frame. I think by removing the battery bay you can easily upgrade to a larger battery, strapping the lipo with velcro should be sufficient for holding it together.

You lose some but you win some too in this case.

Seems to fly really nice, hopefully I get to review one soon too. Seems like it is a worthy contender for the X1, if it also handles the Dutch breeze as well as the X1 can.

Isnt the X252 more in the same class of the X1 than the X251?

Nice! Btw, is it me, or does the quad sound a little bit different after you hit that branch? Maybe a little extra prop unbalance, due to the impact? It still flies great, but the sound seemed different, and I am not referring to the motor cycles that are running in the background.

No I didn't really notice a difference impressive coz I hit the branch almost at full speed
