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.

  • It's been a while but I"m back and like I predicted Dji is now the most used quadcopter/drone system for home consumers and no disrespect to the other system out there but Dji is the best bang for your buck. Now that they have introduce the Naza M system and the Dji Phantom Vision 2 very east to fly rock solid system via gps, wifi, fpv for about 1200 dollars shipped and next year the price will fall. If you go to any online rc club like rcgroups.com the Dji system or drone are always the easiest to resell. Heed my word buy Dji first before you waste your money on anything else 

  • I'm glad to hear that, thanks for the info i hope it reaches a lot of folks
  • I'm not a spammer. I am right next door to the US distributor Empire Hobby, and am certain we can help those who purchased from US dealers. They will not be able to help those that didn't purchase from the US though since they wouldn't have sold the 330X to that dealer.
  • Thanks for the plug if you can help some buyers recoup that would be great and hope your not a spammer
  • I agree the Scorpion version is better. We just received a shipment of them and I couldn't resist trying one myself and it definitely has more power.

    If any of you out there purchased your 330X from a US dealer and have a bad esc, contact me at info@allerc.com and we can help you get it replaced.
  • Variable pitch it could be but if that is a new quad we should here something soon. Because gaui didn't leak video for nothing. I'll keep may eyes and ears open.

    Gotcha', but I just can't imagine getting away with something like that without, say, variable pitch props... very interesting.
  • I don't know. but it's not the 330x it's the bigger quad in the video with the bigger propellers and the gaui gps on top. Take a look at the video again and you will see it. I think it's a new quad gaui is working on.

    In the video Charles posted above ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfBvTKXxwNU&feature=player_embed...! ) , at 57 seconds in something amazing happens... How do you all suppose they accomplish that? It happens so fast- Are they seriously just reversing the motors?
  • Good points made, the problem i have with Gaui is that there selling a beta. a lot of folk spent a lot money to get what they paid for. I mean Gaui knew the esc and motors are faulty that why they hurry and made another version the (S) version with improved brushless motor and 10a esc instead of those 7a. And on top of that the replace parts like esc and brushless motor are sold out and the supplier can't tell you when they will have them in. Nothing perfect but if you know there a problem with the product like esc,motors atleast have repair parts ready so if something needs repaired you don't have to wait 15-30 days for parts to be instock. Thanks Leonardo for you comments
