Dji is the best multirotor system out there for the price it lives up to the hype. I bought a f330 pre built arf kit used save about a 100.00. I bought a 20c 3s 4000 Economyrc lipo battery flying time about 20 mins. I gotta say I was amazed how stable ,responsive and fast I was able to fly. I took it up about a 100 feet just to hover. it's simple to build the most difficult thing to do is using the software and transmitter setting for first time users but one accomplish that buyer will very happy with the end result. I just order the f450 and the x468 landing and gimble at 129.00 ship made for naza quads here is the link

These things are hard to come by used because so many people are very please with them and when they are so sold used it not at a big saving that why I just bought the f450 with naza fc new. Man I gotta say I love what the folks at Dji have done I hope they keep up the good work because they made a believer out of me

The Walkera Ufo 5 is perfect for beginners

what i did not like about the walkera 5 is this:

The appearance i mean not bad but still not a uav it's a cookie cooker image.

Now that i got that out of my system let's move on. If you have not read my previous blog i suggest you do.

I recently sold my gaui 330x original version but i needed something to fly not too pricey and spare parts ready available. until i find a u-3d- ufo with funpilot too buy at a 30 percent savings. I decided to buy the walkera ufo 5 about 169.00 plus shipping. I was pleasantly surprised with this quadcopter it's easy to fly, very stable and excellent for beginners and i mean excellent. Unlike the advertising pros who trick consumer in to buying something that is marketed for beginner and is not ,leaving the consumer's pocket feeling a bit lighter.

The pros: Very easy to fly and stable, a good design, spare parts are easy to find,affordable and can be flown indoor , outside on calm days and it is pretty durable. The cons: Medium power ,the motor are brushed.

Oh and getting back to the appearance of the copter well i made a few changes and very soon i am doing the propeller mod. I had to make it look like a real quadcopter I thought the original appearance of the copter looked a little cheesy.

I give the Gaui 330x 7 out 10 because it has a very solid body very durable, inexpensive when compare to the other quadcopter on the market and it actually flies.

Pros: parts are easy available, it's simple to build and repair. The main brain on this copter consist of a Gyro and receiver. That's it nothing else, performance is pretty good as well. There's also talk of a gps on this quad. I was able to fly this quad in my dinning room which is 12'x12' with no problem.

Cons: Cheap esc and brushless motors, horrible landing gear and propeller nuts that may come off even if loctite is used. For example i had a propellor come off while checking my transmitter setting and i used loctite.

I recommend replacing the propeller nuts before any major flight this will save you a lot of money on repairs if one or more propeller come off while in the air. Later down the line change out the landing gear other than that buyers should enjoy this quad.
I have posted photos of the locknuts i used to replace the propeller nuts, my 330x start to finish. If you have any question on building or in general please contact me.
