Hi every one.
Am looking to get a quad(my first) and was wondering which one.
Looking at the Ladybird as Bruce says it is good
OR a Blade MQX which are more expensive
OR the Turnigy Micro Quad as i here it is good
Which one shall i get??
I know the Ladybird and the micro quad are both on backorder(annoyingly :evil: )
But am willing to listen to other recommendations if you have them.

I suggest getting a WLtoys v929, also sold at hobbyking with the name "Mini beetle quadcopter".
It is a clone of the MQX, binds to a TGY9x, and flies nicely.
It isn't perfect though, as it cannot fly in + mode, and the flips it does are pre-programmed.

But with the money you save, you can get a Ladybird, Turnigy Microquad or build your own, bigger quad.
You can get the v929 from around 35$ for a BNF version and 45$ for RTR, free shipping.
The controller it comes with is a toy and the charger is crap though.
There is also a v939, which is a clone of the Ladybird, but it isn't released yet, so I have no idea if it is any good.

Of course, if you already have a radio you can use with a Ladybird or MQX and can buy a BNF version, that might bring the cost down to a reasonable level.
