Great looking quad/octo, but can't make up my mind if I like the concept. Stacking two motors like this makes it a lighter and easier build, and will make it easier to handle the loss of a motor. But at the same time you lose some lift since the lower motor propellers have to work in the down wash of the upper ones. Also you do not get the added maneuvering flexibility/stability of a eight arm setup.

Maxxprod's retirement is secured. When are we going to get to the tri rotors?

When I asked one of their resellers recently ( www.cnchelicopter.com ) they mentioned it would be about USD$900 (over priced in my estimation) and about three and a half months away. They had a lot of issues with the X500 and X600 and so they are trying to iron out all the bugs before they release this one.

Apparently some of the old units got out into the wild outside China before their customer services were able to deal with International support and so there were a lot of dissatisfied customers. They appear to be doing a good job on this one however with a programme to invite professional international "players" :) to try and break the thing before International release.

Still I think the proposed Arducopter will blow the socks of this unit if it can be made for USD$350 ish and does everything it says on the tin.
