I have no idea why but I ordered one of these.... well, I was looking for an AIO FC and and RX and it looked kind of cool so I just ordered the whole enchilada.

Anyone get one of these recently? What FrSky RX does it come with and do the motors have drilled bells? Specs says up to 4s... curious if it actually flies well that way; thinking 8000kV motors are probably too high for 4s.

Found an unboxing video, but unfortunately it’s not in English

I’m pretty intrigued by this quad, and surprised that there isn’t more interest on this sub. Love that it comes with the runcam nano, and would be interested in more information on the VTX, but not finding much.

What is humquad’s association with betafpv?

Edit: After looking on the google machine some more, it appears this is basically a betafpv toothpick being sold in the EU under a sister company, using roughly the same internals as the 85X... definitely interested in that.

cause the market is pretty saturated with this type right now. nothing wrong with this, but also nothing special either.

I don’t disagree that the market is saturated, but I’d put Betafpv and the specs on this quad above the eachine and happmodel versions. Even the GEPRC and fullspeed “toothpicks” fall short in my opinion.

Received mine yesterday. There are a ton of little things that they should have thought about before shipping it. The RX antenna just hangs out there, the VTX antenna faces straight back and is in about the worst position possible, the battery sits on a couple of bolts, no buzzer and dshot is super quiet (it's black and easy to lose). They also didn't bother with any custom tune. Mine seems to fly OK but there's something definitely wrong with the VTX, I get distortion and breakup like never before in the video feed. DVR doesn't capture it as seen in the goggles but I can see a ton of lost frames in the footage.

Well what incentive do they have to fix anything if you jump the gun and blindly buy one anyways?

Is this some sort of consumption contest?

Honestly, if you want the best, u need to build your own. The sailfly wins on value alone (I buy it for the parts). I wouldn't touch any of the others.

careful now. everybody knows on RCG now that you shouldn't critique anything unless you own it first.

Mine lasted 40 mins, and esc died on the first 3S pack after a pretty minor crash.

Review will be up tomorrow or friday.

I have a couple that I built myself but been having a hard time tuning. I've would assume that if you buy a BNF model it should be tuned and ready to go.

Part of the reason for the difficulty is that a) these tiny quads are more difficult to tune IMO, and b) I don't have a good idea as to what a really well tuned one feels/flys like. Was hoping that getting a BNF would help me set expectations for b).

If you guys know of a good tuning tutorial, especially if it's focused on BF4+ and tiny quads, then please let me know. I know how PID controllers work in theory but putting that knowledge into practice, especially on a tiny quad where you're dealing with 3 axis, strong sensitivity to environmental factors, + tons of other settings, has been difficult. The tutorials I've found have all been severely lacking. The best I've found so far is a YouTube vid by one of the Rotor Riot guys and even that one skips over a lot.
