  1. Good product for the novice

    Posted by Ron on 25th Jun 2014

    This was my second mini quad that I've been using for practice and I have found it helpful in understanding the principals of helicopter flying. It's a challenge, but fun at the same time. Again, the reviews on You Tube make it seem allot easier than it is, but I have found it enjoyable.

  2. Fun to Fly!!

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Jun 2014

    Still a beginner I am. But this little thing flies great. Controller is very sensitive. Only need small movements.

  3. Supper but gets caught on carpet, landing gear needs to be rounded

    Posted by alex on 12th May 2014

    very fun, one prop came off and seems ok now... Landing legs should be Half Moon like Rounded on the bottom, then it will not get CAUGHT ON CARPET and tip over. Damaging the props.
    Better flying instructions. like DO NOT USE forward, back, right and back Right control, UNTIL YOU Trim for movement. Then Use use LEFT UP AND DOWN till you feel ok, Then try very Slight movements right left, forward back EASY..... Thank you
    Great fun in a smooth floor room.

  4. Best Small sized quad copter out there!

    Posted by Dartanian Carlson on 20th Apr 2014

    This is not my first quad copter or helicopter experience and I am an expert pilot with these things and I have to say... if I could i would rate it 6 stars. Unbelievable control authority and response as well as super easy to fly as long as you aren't twitchy with the sticks. As long as you use small, slow and, smooth stick movements, she flies like a DJI or Blade. Highly recommended for anyone who is an expert or just getting into the hobby. It also flies better than most quads in the wind. Thanks! -Dartanian

  5. Surprisingly Good

    Posted by Elwood Kotil on 6th Apr 2014

    The first thing I did was install a medium servo screw in each control stick since I don't thumb fly. Much easier to hold and control. The thing is stellar and as agile as my Blade nano! After reading about the Hubsan X4 transmitter I ordered one and just got it Saturday. Now I have dual rates and can turn the lights on or off at will. The X is an absolute beast on high rates and rivals my Quad 180 and the nano! WOW!!! Much easier to control with the bigger transmitter and it binds as quickly as it did before! I am totally satisfied with the X and ,of course, with MRC!

  6. A lot of fun and a little disappointment!

    Posted by Dewey Reinhard on 18th Mar 2014

    This is my second Proto X by Estes. A terrific little copter with amazing performance. Took me a while to learn to fly it well.
    My age (83) could have had something to do with that. I don't think 60 yrs. flying fixed wing aircraft and 40 yrs. flying balloons helps at all flying the little ProtoX. My disappointment is that both copters had motor failures within 2 to 3 weeks after purchase. Also blades and motors are not available from any source for these great little guys.

  7. Way too much fun!

    Posted by Scott S on 18th Mar 2014

    I've flown RC planes for many years, and have had a couple of small helicopters, but this is my first quad. This thing is a ton of fun, will fly in very small areas or even outdoors on a calm evening. It takes a little getting used to, but seems to be very tough. The only issue I've had is once in awhile a prop will get pressed down too tight to a motor and won't spin, just pry it back up a bit and away you go. Takes 20-30 minutes to charge and flies 5-10 depending on throttle management. Go ahead and get one, you know you want it!
    P.S. Motion RC rocks!

  8. Tougher than it looks!!!

    Posted by Brent Vannes on 21st Feb 2014

    I love this little guy - bought one for my newbie brother
    I was very pleasantly surprised at just how durable this little bugger is. It can be a bit twitchy until you get the hang of letting the stabilization synchronize when you power it on, I had a heck of a time at first turning it on and setting it down before it completed synchronization and as a result it would need lots of trimming, until I discovered this trick and it can be done with the little stock controller as well as the Hubsan upgrade controller.
    This neat trick allows you to resynchronize it after you power it on and set it down - if you hold left stick full down/right then rapidly move the right stick/aileron back and forth until the LED lights on the Proto X flash that resynchronizes it.
    There is an upgrade controller than works great with this at:
    also video on YouTube on how to use the additional features that the upgrade controller provides:

  9. Not for this newbie

    Posted by Greg on 14th Feb 2014

    I'm a newbie to the RC world. That said, this was perhaps not the best choice to start with. While it is inexpensive and easy to set up, its lightness makes it a little too responsive to the controls for someone like me who is just starting. I actually ended up tethering it to heavier objects so it wouldn't zoom off until I could master the controls. The other part I had trouble with was adjusting the trim that keeps it from drifting.

    All that said, I'm hooked, and looking forward to flying larger, more capable craft.

  10. Fun even for beginners and can take a beating!

    Posted by Ryan on 22nd Jan 2014

    I got this for the office (Systems Integration Engineering firm) to share with the other engineers as a way for us to reduce/handle stress. What a fun little Quad. I am used to flying FP Micro Helis and have just gotten into CP Micro Helis and 200 Sized CP Helis - this is good practice coming up from FP to CP helis in regards to the orientation tracking required by your brain and the similarity of the flight controls/coordination. I had no issue hovering and doing slow circuits. New fliers had trouble initially with the touchy throttle and need to learn smoothness, but the little quad can take a hell of a crash and keep on flying after. $40 well spent!

  11. Fantastic FUN!

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Jan 2014

    This is amazing! Own lots of RC planes, but this is so much fun flying inside house during winter months. We can hardly wait for the batteries to recharge, so we purchased more than one.

  12. Up and down and all around!

    Posted by Kaisierjohnny on 3rd Jan 2014

    A well thought out and planned device; sturdy too, takes within reason, a lot of abuse. I am very happy with this gem, and would recommend it, for yourself, for friends, or as a gift; and so much more.

  13. Totally Awesome Quad !!!

    Posted by RoboKop on 29th Dec 2013

    This nano is the easiest quad to fly... very fast for a pint size flyer ... charges fast and is probably the most fun i`ve had in a long time... well worth the money ... it can take quite a beating too ( i`ve slammed mine a few times with no problems ) .. the best !!! thanks Motion RC .......

  14. This Liitle Quad Rocks !!

    Posted by SkyZapInc on 27th Dec 2013

    This Quad is so small and so hooked up its amazing something this small flies so nice !! An absolute Blast to fly !! Get one ! There Cheap to Buy and Flies like a much larger Craft !! Just get one !! Just a little FYI, buy the remote for the Hubsan X4 Quad (Another Great Flyer 1) and you will have a Blast, basically this Quad will do Flips and Rolls with the 2.4ghz Hubsan X4 Remote, it connects instantly being its on the same 2.4 Frequency, you will love it !!

  15. This Nano Quad Kicks Butt!!!

    Posted by A. Compton on 11th Dec 2013

    I never thought something this small would be so easy and fun to fly! It's every bit as fast and maneuverable as the bigger ones. Love it!
