    Just bought my blue QR-1... what are YOU getting

    Thought id start up a thread for all those who have purchased a QR-1. This is the place to brag about what you bought.

    Me, I just bought a blue one from ebay. Cost me $100 shipped to Canada. Cant wait for the 14 days it will likely take to arrive to pass so i can annoy my wife with it.

    BTW, the blue one is going to fly way better than the other colors because its the same color as the sky and the sky so the sky will accept it better and let it fly in it with more fines (im reaching here... give me a break)

    I pre-oredered a DR-1 in BLUE only because Orange wasnt/ isnt offered. My plans are to change that though. LOL j/k Nah, I purchased this for my little boy for Christmas. We'll share it for indoor funness. I have a huge open concept Living Room, Dining, and Kitchen. So it will be fun to fly it in there. Just have to dodge the fan though. LOL

    Blue? Blue?? Really??? Slow, clumsy Blue????

    Now Orange is the way to go!!! Definitely faster, more nimble and more fuel efficient with the orange model only, DI Anti-Matter Generator (DIAMG for short). It will be off the charts!!!!

    Looks like my wife just confiscated mine till Christmas. It wasnt going to be here till the 14th anyway so I only have to wait a week or so. But still... dang. Im going to take the batteries and charger out before I give it to her so they can be full on Christmas day.

    I suspect there will be ALOT of QR-1's flying around Christmas trees this year.

    The trucks with lipo's have a different part number. They are for newbies just starting out. I say that because most of us that have been around won't dump the extra money for having those included. Just my thoughts.

    Good to know, didn't realize they were making them with or without Lipos

    Just ordered mine, I don't know the color, there was only one in stock at LiquidRC and I got it for $115 shipped to me...

    It's going to be a very long two weeks before I got it as I'm going on vacation this Friday... Hopefully it will be waiting for me when I'm back...

    Well, my co-worker finally talked me into it. I just snagged one from ebay for $87 shipped to my door in Cali. Should be here Thursday but I have another co-worker that's been thinking about it so I e-mailed the seller to see if I placed another order if he would but the shipping up to get it hear sooner....

    Been doing RC for over 20yrs. Looking forward to having this little quad as my first go at quads...

    Me and a buddy ordered em off eBay. $80 shipped.
    Green for me. Matches my revo 3.3

    Only flown indoors so far. Busted one rotor arm on the first day. Patched it up with superglue.
    Once you get it dialed in its pretty fun.

    If you get what sounds like a squealing/squeaking from one or more motors, it's a misaligned prop. Figured that right out.
    Ill see if we can get some videos up soon.

    When you swap the blades do it in a diagonal pattern or it wont fly right.

    Very nice. I like it, and nice color. Colored blades in the front is awesome, better to see the direction quickly.
