Quote any idiot can fly one without an appreciation of the risks, or knowledge of safe flight practices, or even a basic understanding of how it works.
Quote from: kilby on Tuesday,August 27, 2013, 09:54:18 Hmm, idiots have been able to buy quads (or ant other flying thing)What you are talking about is idiots with less money can buy them now.Idiots can also buy the pieces and put them together.
Quote from: QuadBod on Tuesday,August 27, 2013, 00:56:35 "Recently, the demand for recreational aerial image and video capture has been rapidly increasingly amongst RC enthusiasts but until now, many have required a prior understanding or level of knowledge that precludes the casual and hobbyist user."But that';s a good thing isn';t it? Not being elitist, but there are huge benefits to competence and safety in having knowledge and understanding of how the "brick with spinning razor blades attached" (as I once saw them described) works, because you built it. And even then, things can go wrong.I appreciate the benefits of manufacturers quality control compared to a less skilled hobbyist doing a DIY botch job, and in a micro it makes perfect sense, but quads like this and the DJI Phantom give me the willies, because any idiot can fly one without an appreciation of the risks, or knowledge of safe flight practices, or even a basic understanding of how it works.

Quote from: Friskle on Wednesday,August 28, 2013, 02:32:07 plus as with most hobbies like this, you have those that like to build then fly, and those that would rather just buy and fly, the latter does not make a person an idiot.

I';ll do a mini review when I get it if anyone is interested? Just watched this video demoing the different modes..... looks really good. It';ll be interesting to see if they';ve developed an FC themselves, or if its one we already know?This vid: http://www.horizonhobby.co.uk/aeroonline/e13_blade/e13-blh7800/e13-350-qx-video-modes.html#info
