It happens to the best of us. Many a video on U-tube of expensive quads flying away. I watched my buddies drone fly away. I was even at the controls when it went out of Tx range. I was trying to help after he flew it to far down range. It was a cheep quad. And it was above the trees in 15mph winds. I couldn't see it well enough to regain orientation LOS.Blade Mach 25, probably still with red body, lost Feb 1, Cesar Chavez Park, north of the lower picnic tables, and vicinity of the message board. Thanks.
I haven't had the opportunity to loose my 210R yet (still on the bench). But I've got 3X the value invested in my little Blade300X Heli. I might have been better off if I were to have lost it. Looking back, I shouldn't have spent a lot of money on the aftermarket modifications. But otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing.Thanks, Phoenix. I met a guy there today who had lost 6. Yikes.
That sucks man. Check out banggood.com for some cheap replacement options. A micro brushed quad is cheap and great practice of you aren't ready to get another big one.
For micro quads check out the Eachine qx and ex series which are about $50-$75. If you are ready for another mini quad, check out the Eachine Wizard 220 which is a very high performance 5" for about $150.
Don't buy another one they are a waste of moneyHi Green. We walked around for an hour in the dark, plus 2 hours today in the water/mud, and found neither crackheads nor the drone. Thanks much for the Wi-Fi analyzer suggestion, but it appears to be for only Android, and I have only IOS. I'm probably going to bite the bullet and get another Mach 25. The hook is set.
