Q. visitor asked, hello, I am new to the hobby and have been flying a udi u818a as a beginner quad to lear how to fly but I kinda want more now. I am looking at the blade 350 qx3 now but am worried with some reviews that I am reading that mention fly aways. Is this still a known issue or has this been resolved?

Its not something to worry about as long as you know what flight mode you are in and if the GPS signal gets dropped.
With the new GPS antenna that does away with that part of the issue.
so there aren't anymore issues with the fly aways cause of the new gps antenna?
from what ive read the fly aways occur usually when someone initiates the rth feature

We are part of the sale steam not the tech support team, so we dont get those types of issues.
But I havent heard of any fly away issues in a long time.
ok i got you.

I believe it was mostly a 2 part issue, people trying to use return to home after GPS signal was lost, but I am not 100% on that.
the only other question i have is if i should buy the rtf version or the bnf and get the dx5e. Is there an difference between the dx5e and the dx4 supplied with the rtf version?
any major differences that will make flying different in any way?
?
J. B.
If you plan to stick with the hobby a while, I highly recommend the DX6.
dx6
The DX4e that it comes with would have a 3 position switch, the DX6 is the next higher model to include that.
ok thanks. im going to do a little more research before buying. Thanks for all the help
