    I just bought a used Blue one and paid $80 for it. Good working order, with transmitter, box, instructions, and spare props. My personal policy is to pay 50% or less of the cost new for used items,...

    Not a lifetime. But a customer should be able to expect that an item works for a reasonable amount of time. If Traxxas sends replacements, and those go out a week later, why shouldn't they replace...

    The Alias is very good in light or even moderate wind (I'd say up to 12 knots or so). Just go to an open field and be sure to fly it into the upwind (stand downwind) - so if you start to lose it,...

    The blue LED is more visible if you tilt the quad towards you. Spin it 45 degrees at a time and each time pull the R stick back for a second. When you have it facing the right way that blue LED will...

    Was flying out front of the house- as I have done 100 times before- and suddenly all the lights turned on on the Alias and it just fell out of the sky.

    LVC on XO-1?

    I ran my XO-1 the other day on 2 3s 4000 batteries. It would not die. Ran and ran and ran. It slowed down a tiny bit (I'm still stock gear and pinion- so I don't get over 50 anyway). But I never...

    I think you need 2 batteries. You can use 2 2s or 2 3s but I reccomend they be identical in size and capacity. I suppose if one was a 4000 and the other a 5000 it may not make a huge difference. But...

    In order (best visibility to worst - IMO):

    Good decision. I now have all the colors and Blue is by far the hardest to see at night. Orange is the easiest to see and determine orientation IMHO... But Green is good too..
