Getting the bug again
« on: April 02, 2018, 04:06:52 PM »
Well, I'm bummed about selling my stuff so I have a birthday in 2 weeks and my Son wants to get me back into another quad. He can't afford a lot but I was thinking about starting with the FrSky Q X7

Does anyone have any experience with this radio? I'm also thinking about the Flysky radio which is much cheaper.

 It'll be kinda like going from a Porsche to a ford but it's better than nothing.   :t2030:

Actually I'm looking at this transmitter since I'm probably looking at micro quads and even thinking about a micro helicopter. Due to health reasons for now most of my flying will be either indoors or in my small back yard. Hopefully there will come a day when I can get back into bigger stuff.

I'm thinking about one of these quads.

I may even build one like the 110 I built last year, I really liked the way it flew. I'm thinking about these FPV goggles.

I'm thinking it'll be around $250.00 all totaled, not too bad huh?   :coolguy:

I hear you Sobodad, I figure with that transmitter I can grab a BNF quad and maybe a BNF heli like a WLtoys V977 or the XK K110. The transmitter supports telemetry so it's not a toy, it can do big boy stuff too I'm really curious what this thing has under the hood, it should be fun.   :t2030:
