So many quads, so little airspace. Among stunt-quads there are many common attributes such as the 6-axis gyro, self-leveling systems, one-button flips and rolls, and decent price tags. There are some out there like the hefty Wltoys V383 that can fly inverted, hover upside down, and flip in place with amazing control. On the other end, diminutive little scrappers like the Blade Nano QX 3D can do much more than their bigger, more pricey brethren are able to.
Little brother to the 350 QX, the 200 QX was clearly cut from the same design mold. Its landing gear is removable for reduced weight, with landing pads on the bottom of the motors for soft touch-down. It has uni-body plastic construction which proves fairly unforgiving in crashes -- the rotor outriggers being prone to crash-and-snap, which in turn requires a full body job for reparation. The plastic seems a trifle fragile for a relatively pricey stunt-quad, though there are aftermarket options for replacement parts for the committed Blade flier.
200 QX’s LEDs are encased within the semi-transparent fuselage. Curiously red LEDs denote the front while green are on the back. This can be adapted by the ambitious to conform with normal programming. As the LEDs are enclosed, they are difficult to discern in direct sunlight, making lower light flight optimal. With camera optional, the 200 QX BNF functions as a camera platform for the E-flite EFC-721 and will support the Mobius Mini-cam as well.
3 flight modes: Stability Mode offsets the throttle to prevent inadvertent ground impaction by reducing banking angles; 3D Stagility, which features greater banking capacity and self-levels the quad when the sticks are released; and 3D Agility for experienced operators, offering full 3D flight and stunt capability including rolls. This is one that didn’t see the need for on and off switches, an always dubious choice for a device with high-speed spinning blades.
Very satisfied with this product! Strongly recommend for any level of experience. The safe technology is wonderful.
Been flying for about a year and is by far the most enjoyable RC that I have flown. Lots of fun!
This quad is simply awesome ... Heaps of power. If you have any heli experience you will love this thing. You can't wipe the smile from my face every time I fly it.
I have to say, I am excited at this point. Everything seemed great. But then I tried the throttle. Nothing! Bummer! What a disappointment! I would never give this as a gift.
Upon un-boxing this quad I was a little taken back on how small it was. I wish now I went to see this item in a store front... You are better off getting a 180 QX...
