    Well just talked to my lhs and the qauds are in. The only thing is that they got only a Blue and Orange one, not my Green one (the best). lol. They were thinking the rest should be there by end of the week.

    The lhs hadn't had a chance to fly it yet, but did make a comment on the size of it tho. Said it was pretty much just a flying battery. lol

    Lol. That is what it is, a flying battery. Still fun. I remember calling my Bandit a motorized battery once when there was a 4S brick in it.

    okay i am not a pro at flying more of a beginner and this thing has not the easiest learning curve. i am really great-full that it came with extra propellers.

    not sure bc of the size or what but it seems like it has a hard time adjusting to speed. one movement in one direction no matter how slow or fast it just propels or drops.

    if you throttle down it drops alot and will bounce there is no subtlety to it.

    its going to take a bit to get the hang of it.

    Well hopefully itll get better, that doesnt sound to good... It shouldnt just drop with a slight throttle change...

    i am using the beginner mode right now with the transmitter it came with. i had to adjust some of the forward throttle.

    i am reading more so i can see what to do and be less confused.

    hoping it will just get easier.
