    To wait or not to wait...

    I wish Traxxas would give us more details. Before they announced the QR-1, I was already considering getting the Blade MQX quadcopter. I love everything I have that is Traxxas, and would like to get their quadcopter offering but I don't know if I want to wait to get one when I could just order the MQX now.

    Hahah, well said Charger, but unfortunately, you can have too little money

    As far as the size goes, I like the smaller size of the QR-1, and the way it looks, and of course it's cheaper, but right now availability is hard to pass up for me.

    An mQX is more than twice the size of the QR-1. I think the QR-1 is a nice indoor machine while the mQX is more useful outdoors.

    Mqx will still suffer outdoors. Itll take a little wind but not alot. The size is nice, on both if them. Good for indoors

    Quads can handle much more wind than normal helis. I was surprised in the beginning how much that differs. I bet the QR-1 can take more wind than the DR-1. But with that size and weight, I would prefer indoor use and outdoor only when there is no wind.

    See, one of the big reasons I want the QR-1 is because of the size. I will probably use it mostly indoors when I can't go outside to use my trucks. The MQX will probably do fine inside, but it might take more room to maneuver. I just wish Traxxas would tell us more. Didn't they have a release date on the Rally as soon as it was announced?

    I went ahead and bought one. I don't have a quad yet. I'll be using it when it is too scorching hot outside to mess with my trucks or planes.

    I've got a QR-1 on order but I went ahead and ordered a Hubsan X4. Received it in three days off ebay for those in a hurry. Seems pretty stable indoors.
