Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Another good thing is that the battery is charged via USB, either on a computer or with the adapter that comes with the iphones or blacberries, the scout had to be charged in the remote and if you didn't have the AA batteries in good condition, then you could have some other problems."
_
"The battery holder slot did not hold the battery in place very well...part of the stability problem."
_
"the only problem is that the battery slips out the quad a little when I crash."
_
"Only complaint i have is battery life is short, about 6 min, so i recommend spare batteries for more flight time."
_
"Another reason for inconsistent control is if the battery keeps sliding back and forth in the clip, changing the center of gravity during flight, so I put a piece of tape around the battery to make it snug."
_
"The Lectron Pro batteries are not as good in the Nano QX."
_
"I've bumped it into almost every wall the first time I plugged it into the single battery it came with while getting the hand of it and feeling over confident in my flight skills."
_
"If you get one, buy extra batteries, because it's so much fun you'll want to fly it all the time."
_
"I have multipe batteries and multiple chargers so was sure I had a good battery installed."
_
"I've purchased an additional battery, but would recommend several more batteries and chargers to get more continuous enjoyment from this."

Blade

Blade:
"I was recently away from flying for an eight month period and upon returning, decided to get the new Blade Nano QX in an attempt to try something new."
_
"My only complaint would be that the frame is a bit flimsy, and the blade guards can and do break off during hard landings."
_
"I replaced a busted blade with the wrong type and it took me FOREVER to figure out I installed the wrong blade."
_
"I've damaged a couple of the blades enough to have changed to the spares, but they're quite durable."
_
"All of Blade's products are challenging, amazing, and fun."
_
"I'm very pleased with this Quadcopter, before this one I had the Blade Scout CX and I have to say, the quadcopter is very much stable than the scout when you are flying it."
_
"I've only went through the first set of blades and it's still going well."
_
"The Blade Nano is fantastic."
_
"The quad is so light, and with the protector guards on the blade ends, I've never once broken a prop, knocked one off."
_
"Was super excited to move up to a quality Blade product after having so much fun on my little Hubsan X4."

Control

Control:
"It's hard to see and control at that distance, being tiny, but is still under control."
_
"Another reason for inconsistent control is if the battery keeps sliding back and forth in the clip, changing the center of gravity during flight, so I put a piece of tape around the battery to make it snug."
_
"Sure, its built in flight controller keeps the horizontal and yaw drift to a minimum, but the altitude controls make things very challenging."
_
"I would love to order another but I think there is a persistent quality control problem which would guarantee another like the last."
_
"It is very responsive while being easy to control."
_
"Piloting a remote control helicopter is still difficult, but this is the easiest to fly that I've ever used."
_
"And the control is fantastic."
_
"Thanks to torque cancellation, Quads in general have great control and precision in tight spaces, and the gryos on the Nano are particularly reliable."
_
"Love the Quad - VERY durable - just power down if you crash or have lost control."

Crash

Crash:
"I crash it a couple times each time I fly and every cringe worthy crash still results in zero damage to the quad."
_
"the only problem is that the battery slips out the quad a little when I crash."
_
"The main frame was my biggest disappointment because it is flimsy and I am sure that it will not withstand many crashes, however it can be strengthened heat shrink or by filling the under part with something such as hot glue."
_
"So finally, the problem was bad enough that it was no longer able to be flown without crashing."
_
"The SAFE tech makes it so much fun to fly, you really have to try hard to crash it in stability mode, yet it's still very nimble and responsive."
_
"I've had so much fun with this little copter and crashed it more times than I can count, not because of it's abilities, but because of my lack there of!"
_
"This quad is great and survives many crashes."
_
"It's been crashed hundreds of times and still flies great."
_
"This is a great little Quadcopter, I crash this thing on a regular basis and it still flies great."
_
"Fairly sturdy, crashed on several occasions and no significant damage."

Flying

Flying:
"Since this one has 4 propellers, it has more mobility, you can to make it spin and move to the sides, I had an accident when I was learning to fly it and I broke the frame, one of the propellers protector, but I got a new one and replaced it very easy and within 20 minutes."
_
"too hard to program, would not fly well in safe"
_
"I grew to not enjoy flying my 3 and 4 channel indoor helis as much anymore and got into multirotors, but I don't always want to be flyin my 250 and 450 that need repairs after any significant impact."
_
"The only reason for not flying it far away is because it gets hard to tell which is front and back from a distance, and outdoors the wind takes it to visit your neighbor if you go up high."
_
"When I first got this super fun little Nano QX, it wouldn't fly straight and I had to use excessive amounts of trim, until I discovered a few things to check."
_
"If you take the sensible precaution of flying over grass, I don't think you will be able to break the frame, even if you make deliberate efforts to punish it."
_
"It is not so hard to fly in smart mode, good for a begginer like me."
_
"Cool and easy to fly quadcopter."
_
"It's very light and very nice to fly indoors and in small spaces, I love this one and I don't regret the purchase"
_
"It maneuvers really well and it's fun to fly in confine spaces."
_
"Very good copter with a very stable fly pattern."

Motor

Motor:
"About a week after that motor failed."
_
"I recommend much indoor practice before going outdoors.. also, keep tweezers handy to remove and clean rotors as hair can get wrapped around the motors, hindering flight and possibly damaging the rotor)Enjoy!"
_
"The motors will also fail on there own relatively early in life and will cost you half the price of a new kit when they do; ( and yes I have changed blades and checked for tangled debris before blaming motors ).Overall this is a great product as it is a real pleasure to fly."
_
")The motors will fail."
_
"And, like the props, the motors may be faulty out of the bag."
_
"However the motors are subject to failure."
_
"Keep the shafts of the motors clear of debris and it will fly like a champ."
_
"Love the QX and have now bought a second one so if a motor needs replaced etc I still have one flyable till other is fixed."
_
"So if you have pets and are flying indoors check the props consistently to be sure that nothing has tangled in between the prop and motor reducing the efficiency of the motors."
_
"best nano quadcoptet,, need to break in motors with soft hovering for 15 flights"

Price

Price:
"After some research, these Nano's routinely suffer from this binding problem due to cheap soldering work."
_
"For the price it's worth every penny and tons of fun."
_
"It's cheap, well built, and stands up to your first screw ups..."
_
"Not saying the Hubsan or Dromida I snubbed to get it aren't worthy, but this quad has been everything I could have expected in an inexpensive and enjoyable quad."
_
"It uses the standard 1 cell micro battery that is cheap and easy to charge."
_
"The Nano is affordable, easy to fly, stable, responsive, durable, and feather-light."

Propeller

Propeller:
"Since this one has 4 propellers, it has more mobility, you can to make it spin and move to the sides, I had an accident when I was learning to fly it and I broke the frame, one of the propellers protector, but I got a new one and replaced it very easy and within 20 minutes."
_
"Regarding the prop guards - those little bits of plastic that look like silly attempts at guarding the prop."
_
"Sometimes hairs get tangled on the spindle and this can be hard to notice, but this can also cause one propeller to spin slightly slower."
_
"The nano qx only broke off a prop guard, which I glued right back on!"
_
"The one big flaw (IMO) is the weakness of the prop guards, and the failure point on the frame arms where they tend to snap."
_
"i did lose one propeller, it just flew off for no good reason."
_
"The quad is so light, and with the protector guards on the blade ends, I've never once broken a prop, knocked one off."
_
"The prop guards love to catch on things."
_
"The best part is the thing is so light and the prop guards so ingenious that you can crash her over and over..as long as you kill the throttle, most likely wont do any damage."
_
"So if you have pets and are flying indoors check the props consistently to be sure that nothing has tangled in between the prop and motor reducing the efficiency of the motors."
_
"get wound up in prop easily) Highly recommend to beginners."

Size

Size:
"It's just not nearly as nice as a full size DX6 or similar transmitter."
_
"Small diameter props are inefficient so it pays to keep the Nano's props in top shape since any bent or tip damaged props will immediately degrade performance."
_
"It's very light and very nice to fly indoors and in small spaces, I love this one and I don't regret the purchase"
_
"It flies extraordinarily well, given its small size."
_
"After about 10 flights, my props did start getting small burs from hits, but that is amazing considering the wrecks it has gone through."
_
"holds a charge for about ten minutes, which is pretty good considering size of battery."

Speed

Speed:
"Now, you can fly this outside but any breeze above 1-2 mph will simply make things a hassle, so I bought this as a purely indoor quad."
_
"This thing is awesome and fun to fly but be warned, it is really fast an hard to see at night."
_
"If the quad helicopter is not stable chances are it is caused from a motor changing speeds as it starts to fail, which causes oscillating up-and-down."
_
"This was the most amazing RC quad that I have flown until about an hour of use and then it became erratic and slow until it wouldn't fly at all."
_
"Lots of wrecks because I am trying to go fast but it is amazing how easy it is to bring this thing back to a hover."
_
"Pairing is fast and easy."
_
"Great Product fast Delivery..."
_
"It flies very well outside in winds up to 10 MPH."
_
"It also has good behavior going either slow or fast."

Stability

Stability:
"The battery holder slot did not hold the battery in place very well...part of the stability problem."
_
"The Agility Mode is quite challenging, so wait until you've mastered it in Stability Mode first."
_
"It's stable in stability mode and it's a lot of (challenging) fun in agility mode."
_
"The SAFE tech makes it so much fun to fly, you really have to try hard to crash it in stability mode, yet it's still very nimble and responsive."
_
"RC helicopters have always been just about impossible for the normal human to fly but this one has built in automatic stability.... solves the biggest problem."
_
"It hovers beautifully and handles well in stability mode."
_
"The battery holder slot did not hold the battery in place very well...part of the stability problem."
_
"Very responsive, has two flight modes, the stability mode is good to learn on for beginners."
_
"The stability mode makes it easier to fly than any other helicopter type craft I've tried."
_
"It's stable in stability mode and it's a lot of (challenging) fun in agility mode."

Transmitter

Transmitter:
"I upgraded the transmitter to a Taranis X9D and all those problems are a thing of the past."
_
"It was a little bit of a hassle to pair this with the transmitter that came with the nano qx fpv."
_
"It was even more of a hassle to pair that transmitter back with the nan qx fpv."
_
"That said, depending on how you have the mode switch mapped on your transmitter, you may not be able to get to it in time."
_
"It was either that or the Estes Proto X, and the Blade product won out, since you can bind it to a regular transmitter avoiding the only complaint I have seen about the Proto X, which is that the controller is useless."
_
"The documentation wasn't the greatest as it concerns pairing my transmitter with the copter."
_
"I'm using a Spektrum DX6i transmitter and it works great with the Nano QX."
_
"It's hard to say what the range is because the range depends more on the transmitter and I have upgraded to a pretty good one."
_
"Also, thanks to DSMX binding, hobby-grade transmitters can take full advantage of the Nano's excellent handling characteristics."
_
"I love that you can use your own transmitter."
_
"I have the BNF version of this which means I already have my own full size compatible transmitter."

Wind

Wind:
"Clearly it won't be able to handle significant wind gusts, that would be asking too much."
_
"You can venture outside but beware of the wind."
_
"Perfect for indoors and can handle outside in VERY light winds or no wind is great."
_
"Outdoor flights are great too, obviously if the wind is not too strong."
_
"While it isn't as heavy as my son Hubsan, or as big as the Dromida Ominus this quad is quite capable outdoors and does surprisingly well with slight wind."
_
"It flys well in gentle wind."
_
"It flies very well outside in winds up to 10 MPH."
_
"To my surprise it works well on no to light wind days outside!"
