    30mph is too much wind for the quad. But most people overestimate wind velocity. If a large pole-mounted flag flops from side to side, you can fly in it. If it just stands out straight and flaps...

    I think the LVC is mostly useless. Use a timer and calibrate your flying time to get 80% out of the battery. (Need a digital charger for this.) Traxxas batteries are good, but a little pricey. ...

    You have a very forgiving definition of a lie. Most of us know one when we see it.

    Three posts in a row on early motor failures with the new motors. I guess the honeymoon is over.

    There are AMA work-arounds for guests if they so choose. You need to be a guest "under instruction" by an appropriate party. One field I fly requires only that condition and another has that...

    The transmitter is pretty cheap, so there isn't a lot of advantage to trying to buy "just the quad".

    Two tips for new flyers: Always fly only upwind so it blows back towards you. Never fly where...

    Mine has often done the chirp and drop. Not particularly far away when it happens. Just a defect I think, but one you can live with as long as you can re-arm before hitting the ground.

    If you want to lighten it, some of the weight will disappear with the case. But you might think about whether the on-board beeping is very useful. Because I'd bet that speaker is a decent...

    The old ones (holes) used to be unpredictable. Some people had immediate problems, some had few or no problems.

    The current ones (no holes) seem to have a lot fewer early failures. But that's...

    Yeah, I've been looking at those. I think I would check into decasing the sender for lighter weight and mounting it to the side instead of on top. If your quad crash lands upside down, pushing the...

    Charging techniques are controversial. Probably because lipo fires are not uncommon and potentially tragic. I won't use a USB charger for any RC battery. A) it's cheap, so of questionable...

    You're kinda rolling the dice. Paying $110 shipped for a used one plus the cost of the extra parts.

    I've run into that 1.5mm & 1/16" hex driver thing before. Hex bits are often a thou or two undersize and when the socket gets that small it sometimes results in what you experienced. Often only the...

    Also, get to a safe area and fly with some distance under you. There's a huge technique difference in flying 20 ft high instead of one foot.
