Blade Nano QX 3D First Look



Two days late, but I *definitely* had a good reason. (Full disclosure: I kept pushing the posting of this post back.) 

As I opened the box of the new Blade Nano QX 3D, I wondered how it would compare to the original NQX. If flying upside down when the quadcopter always looked half way upside down would be any fun. Or if I would put it to the side and fly the original NQX around the room. 

I bound my DX6 to it and flew it. WOW! It almost feels like it has brushless motors compared to the original, and I had to constantly remind myself that they were brushed! In intermediate mode and beginner mode, I had lots of fun pushing the right stick on my DX6 all the way forward and zooming around the (thankfully) large living room. It is durable; after a high-speed crash after attempting a flip, I only broke the motor mount/blade guard. $9 and I was in the air again. (Note that it still flew after the crash. It just had a bad vibration.)

Look for a full review next Sunday or maybe the Sunday after. Thanks for reading! Enjoy, comment, subscribe, and share…
