Shout box not ideal for discussions!  BMFA affiliated clubs do not HAVE to force achievement tests no more than they HAVE to allow any specific type of model. There are plane only, there are Heli only, etc.

Combining futuristic looks with out-of-this-world technology, the Blade mQX Quadcopter is the world's first Quadcopter that comes equipped with AS3X stabilisation.

Making the move over to the mQX from coaxial or single rotor models like the Blade mCX, mSR or 120SR couldn't be easier thanks to the TX's dual rate sensitivity setting whilst more experienced flyers can also enjoy the experience of flying a Quad Copter thanks to it's DSM2 radio technology being compatible with many of Spektrum's flight transmitters such as the DX6i, DX7 and DX8.

Maintaining in-flight orientation can often be of concern for the burgeoning Quad-flyer but with the mQX, different colour blades can be fitted to the lead (front) motor to assist visual orientation and the mQX can be setup easily to fly in either the default "X" pattern or as an alternative "+" pattern depending on the pilot's preferences.

Whilst the four potent 8.5mm brushed motors endow the mQX with all of the control and precision normally only found on larger Quadcopters, the AS3X Stabilisation technology ensures that this sub-micro sized Quad Copter doesn't get blown off course by the wind.

Made from lightweight and durable carbon fibre with a high-impact resistant plastic canopy, the mQX is ready to take the rough with the smooth and as your confidence grows with the mQX thanks to its superb flying manners, you'll soon find yourself being able to pull off advanced aerobatic manoeuvres such as loops, spins and pirouettes.

Length:   292mm (11.5 in)
Width:   178mm (7.0 in)

The thing I have found when they make small models like these and the small helicopters they tend to be harder to fly than the normal sized models and give beginners a bad start, anyone got one of these are they a bit of a handful or are they suitable for beginners  :)

You didn't read my review in RCM&E ;)

Set up soft, they are perfect for learning on.
Pretty hard to break as well. The only slight negative is the motors wear out, just like my micro 4 site, but it has had well over 100 flights...I would also buy the Hobbyking NanoTec  Lipo ....much better and cheaper than the Horizon one..

I never buy any of the mags I suppose i should  :-\ do you do a lot of reviews for them ?
Im glad to hear it is suitable for beginners to as so many of the smaller air craft arent even though they say they are  ;D

forget the MQX build your own for the same price or cheaper if you can and have a ball doing so. Then be happy your machine is bigger and better too. :evil

I Bought a Blade MQX at the end of September after looking for an easy way to experience and get into Quadcopters and found this perfect. Out of the box the setup was easy and my first 10 20 probably even 30 flights were TERRIBLE but after persevering this is such a neat toy and introduction. I';m quite competent on it now and can fly it nose in but still manage to overcompensate sometimes and end up crashing it. It seems pretty resilient and have only recently changed the props to the spare ones which came with it.
Since, i have bout and built a F550 with the NAZA/GPS combo and i am so glad i had some basic learning experience on the Blade. For first learning or just wanting a taster i cant recommend the Mqx enough, its cheap (they';re even cheaper on eBay), they come with everything you need (its worth buying a few extra batteries), and they are so tough after many crashes!
They are small light, and very hard to control for beginners IMHO it helps with those first steps, if your put off by this then maybe its not for you. 
Even after having the 550 the Mqx still gets brought out in the house!

I also bought one as my first quad, i have flown it many times. i think its been the best learning model for me. I have had many crashes and the only damage ive done is a broken boom. Ive also got my mate wanting one too.
