Wow! This Blade Nano QX BNF looks cool and it is a great quad copter for the price. It is so small but so capable and powerful. It comes in a BNF (Bind-N-Fly) option and that is great for experienced level quad copter pilots. The Blade Nano QX works out best for the experienced pilot because you save a good bit of money buying a BNF copter because you aren’t having to overspend for a transmitter you do not need. This thing is ready to go out of the box and all you need is a 4+ channel DSM2 or DSMX transmitter. Again the QX is not necessarily for the beginner pilot.
First off the Blade Nano QX is a palm sized quad copter that weighs just over a half an ounce, yet it is very rigid and able to withstand some crashes or accidents. Each Nano QX is equipped with what they call S.A.F.E. technology. That stands for Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope. This technology keeps the Nano QX upright and the pilot in control at all times. The idea behind the SAFE technology is the hover ability in stability mode. Meaning that if you are having flight trouble just let go of the control sticks on the transmitter and the SAFE technology will bring the Nano QX safely back to a hovering condition. While crashes could still happen this SAFE technology greatly minimizes the severeness of the crash.
The small size of the Blade Nano QX also makes it an awesome indoor quad copter. Your flight skills will need to be good to keep it off of walls in a small room but in a medium to large room it should not be much of a challenge to fly inside. Keep in mind that the Nano is very fast and your reflexes need to be fast to accommodate it. Use SAFE mode until you are comfortable in tight spaces.
The battery can last as long as 10 minutes or a little as 5 minutes depending on how aggressive a pilot you are. Mine only lasts 5 – 7 minutes and it’s time to change out. I have ordered the extra batteries to be able to fly while batteries are charging. The charger connects to any USB port for power. It charges for about 30 minutes before ready to fly again.
It is just amazing how stable this small sized quad copter is in flight. I know in SAFE mode it increases stability but performance is not really hindered in SAFE or stability mode. I have switched it to agility mode just to see how high it would go and could have easily lost it in the tops of trees. The Blade Nano QX comes with battery and charger as well as a replacement blade set and some graphics for the copter. Please remember the BNF version does not come with a transmitter. Also remember that SAFE mode is the way to go until you master your piloting skills.
