Both orders arrived on the same day, which was nice ... I had multiple batteries and therefore longer flying time. In addition to the quad, the package, which doubles as a carrying case - with handle - comes with a transmitter, one battery, and a USB charger. This allows for one flight (about 7 minutes, give or take) before recharging, which takes about 30-40 minutes. I learned this from my nephew; it would have been a little disappointing to learn this by myself. I think it's much easier to learn with the minimal interruption of changing the battery than it would be with the interruption of the charging time.
Out of the box, the instructions were simple and easy to follow. Li-Po batteries are NOT charged before shipping, so the first thing to do is charge the battery(ies). The battery slides into a simple plastic bracket on the bottom of the quad. Pushing it all the way forward places it in the correct position for balance. AFTER turning on the transmitter, assure that the throttle is at its minimum setting (fully back), connect the battery, and place the quad upright on a flat surface. The red LED blinks a few times while it syncs with the transmitter.Read more ›
Standard rate with SAFE: Fairly tame and very good for relatively new pilots and indoor use.
Dual rate with SAFE: Very agile but still very stable and easy to fly (just a lot quicker and better for outdoors).
Agility mode: Essentially behaves like a collective pitch helicopter (no training wheels) and hovering is up to you and not the magic of the little chips inside. Can do stunts (no gimmicky buttons, you have to learn to do them yourself).
The small size makes it great for indoor use but where small light aircraft usually suck outside in anything but the calmest of conditions, this tiny bird will hold its own even in a brisk breeze (you will still need to fight but it will fight as opposed to being carried away). The light weight, simple but rugged design makes it very crash friendly. Crashes don't seem to faze this thing at all with the only issues being that threads or other fibers will occasionally wrap under the blades and prevent the propeller from turning freely (just pull off the blade, remove the obstruction, push back on and continue). It's quieter than my other quads (sounds like 4 bumble bees inside but much quieter outside).
Cons (not many):
No navigation LEDs so low light/night flight is poor for orientation.Read more ›
Issue 1: Out of the box, all 4 props rub against the prop guards built into the body of the Nano QX. This rubbing not only causes a lot of noise, but also very quickly wears out the end of the props themselves causing you to have to replace the props more frequently, but will also cause your trim adjustments to be useless, necessitating constant adjustment to the prop guards. Luckily they are bendable and you can just bend them out a little bit, but there should have been more clearance given to the props when the Nano QX was designed.
Issue 2: Within the first hour of logged flight with my brand new Nano QX, it began to pull forward immediately upon takeoff. For a few minutes I was able to adjust trim to counter this, but quickly became so dramatic that I was unable to correct for it. I also discovered that the same motor was running extremely hot, while the others felt cool to the touch.
After contacting their tech support, Blade replaced my front left motor, free of charge, but warned me that any future issues with any kind of component failure would be my responsibility to pay for and repair. Although the rep who helped me was very nice and quick to resolve my issue, it is disappointing that the motor failed so soon, and that the props constantly are rubbing against the body of the Nano. If it weren't for these quality control issues, or possibly design issues, I would give this an easy 5 stars.
I hope that Blade works to resolve these issues promptly!
