This is the Estes Proto X Nano Electric Quadcopter. This Quadcopter is recommended for ages 14 and older, and is for indoor use only.
Estes’ Proto X is lightweight, affordably priced, easy-to-fly and ready-to-fly; in other words, the season’s must-have Quadcopter! The Proto X is impressively equipped and stylishly designed, with virtually everything you need to get up in the air. Simply add two “AA” batteries, and you're ready for takeoff!
One Estes Proto X Nano Electric Quadcopter with a 4-channel 2.4GHz transmitter with digital trims, four micro motors, one 3.7V 100mAh LiPo flight battery, a USB charge cord, and four spare rotor blades
Dimensions: 1.8 x 1.8" (45 x 45mm)
Weight: 0.40oz (11.5g)
I have a blast flying this toy but.... after the the 5 charge my usb cord isn't working. I thought at first maybe it was my laptop, but after trying 3 other computers with the same results. Now I'm having trouble with getting info on how to return it for repairs, or getting a new cord. Can anyone help with delima?
The package arrived in a timely manner. The Proto X is ton of fun. If you can fly one of these, you can fly one of the big boys. It is just too much fun being able to fly this indoors.
If you want to learn to fly multi-rotors, this IS the least expensive, most fun way to do it! Once you gain some skill, upgrade to a Traxxas QR-1 transmitter ($30?), to unleash the true aerobatic potential of this bad-a$$ little copter. Loops & Rolls indoors = No Problemo! Order some extra props, though. Beginner pilots are hard on props... Disclaimer: No cats were harmed during the training of this quad pilot...
A great flight training tool for larger quad copters is the Estes Proto X. Super fast delivery from RC Planet -- thanks guys!This little quad was the star of the show on Space-Day at the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute in NC last week.
Great experience. Shipped and delivered Promptly.
This is really fun to fly around in the house. It is my first quad copter and is relatively easy to fly but capable enough to keep interest and take time to master. There is a lot there for the price.
