It's sleek. It's high-tech. It's an RC flying experience unlike any other. It's the exciting Blade mQX; the world's first quad-copter equipped with the advanced AS3X (Artificial Stabilization in 3 Axis) System. The sense of precise control this system gives an mQX pilot rivals that of bigger quad-copters that cost a whole lot more. Indoors or out, breezy conditions or calm, you'll find you can fly the mQX with complete confidence just about anywhere, anytime.

Being a beginner this machine should have died a terrible death from crashes weeks ago, but it's like the Ever Ready Bunny it just keeps on keeping on.
Durable is an understatement.
I do recommend learning outside on a grassy surface...helps w/ crashes. And I have replaced a few parts, but it's well made.
It's Fast, Responsive, and way FUN. I just learned how to do flips and barrel rolls. Really !
Did I mention way Fun?
While researching the problem I learned that it's "normal" for these motors to eventually wear out, and that they'll need replacing every once in a while. Having a motor stop working after just 20 minutes of use indicates a problem that should be covered by the warranty. I simply don't have the time to keep following up, and do not want to have to look forward to replacing parts on a regular basis.
I was obsessed with R/C planes and helicopters as a kid in the 1990s, but could never afford to buy one. In the past I've bought those cheap 1-channel R/C helicopters but they were never very much fun.
I'm now in my 30s and decided to indulge my childhood dreams and get an R/C helicopter. When I heard abou the mQX it seemed like a win/win: affordable and functional.
I cannot endorse this product highly enough. Super fun and easy to fly. Amazing what technology they can fit into a tiny package. Yes, it took some practice, but now I can fly with ease.
I also horribly abuse it and it keeps ticking. I've crashed it from 30 feet onto concrete, flown it indoors into the ceiling and walls, etc, etc. Occasionally a motor will pop out of its housing, but you just pop it back in and it is good to go.
1st, it arrived via UPS :( so like clockwork, it didn't arrive until just before I had to leave for work. (In the future I'll probably I quickly took it out of the box and began charging the battery, grabbed the manual and left. I remember thinking about how cheap it felt because of how light it was. Boy was I wrong.
They should make the Space Shuttles out of this thing because had you watched me fly it last night, you might mistakenly think I was TRYING to break it. Within the first 30 min (the manual only promises a 10 minute flight time, but we flew ours for a good 30-40 min), I crashed it into the ground, the street, an aluminum barrel, a dog, a giant metal wind chime, my house and almost myself. Not even a scratch.
It's difficult to control for a beginner at night. I flew it into my neighbors yard, and this neighbor is very similar to the one that the boys hit their baseball into in the Sandlot. It was after 1 a.m., they werent answering their door, so we had to ninja it out of there and I may have literally run THROUGH a small tree seedling trying to get out of their yard. I have scratches all over my chest and stomach from it. Additionally, our fence is broken and has to be steadied by someone for someone else to scale it. My roommate just so happened to stand in a fire-ant bed while holding the fence for me, and has about a hundred ant bites on his right leg.
It was a good day. Can't wait to fly it again.
