: Read a comment from a fellow flyer asking about body styles and flying.Was there any difference?Here are my personal observations after flying each style for an entire winter and spring.Strictly my views on the Syma X1.

 

The UFO body is the quickest of the three.It's sleek,not much resistance,cuts the wind and is slightly unstable in a wind over 3-4 mph.but man it can travel.Now it's here, then it's there.Stay on the controls and have a great time.Flys well in H speed.Zoom!

 

The Space Ship is everything you would want in a first quad.Stable,responsive in the wind with no great departure from what you expect,turns well and holds theĀ course you set for it,levels well from a flip in the wind,no quirky movements other than an unsteady hand on the stick.On a nice day you can fly from an armchair with the tx in one hand and a liquid in the other.As always,stay on the controls.H speed will give you a thrill and raise your heart rate.

 

The Bumble Bee is fun but really susceptible to the wind.Must be the body configuration and size.The stronger the wind the more you stand up and pay attention.Don't be mislead however,it's still an X1 and will give you a real feel for what a quad can do.Just watch the flip recovery.Don't wait for power.Get on it.It's really fun in moderate wind and H speed.

 

I'm Really sorry for taking all this room on this site.I apologize.I'm going to shut up and fly.double-thumbs-up-thanks-smiley-emoticon

Eagle 33,

 

Got to Battery mount for x1 on this forum.

I fly bigger batteries all the time .The modification isn't hard to do and has worked for me for4 or 5 months now.The only change I have made is to use a velcro fastening to hold the battery in addition to the velcro on the battery and plate.If you're like me you may need a little extra holding power when you cartwheell the x1.

I'm flying 600mAh batteries mostĀ  of the time.Hobby King batteries are good for me.Twelve minutes is long enough..Motors are hot in that time.Good flying.
