Intro: About a month ago, I stumbled upon the Blade mQX, a
cool new quad rotor product. Bought it and have been having a ball!
First Impression: It is pretty stable compared to some early,
much larger ones I flew back in the early 90's, which at the time
were just beginning to surface at a much higher price tag.
Wow we are so spoiled with today's affordable and powerful tiny RC
equipment that makes it possible for a lot of cool flying models.
A deeper Look: After trying the Blade mQX, the stock canopy
was a bit distracting, toyish looking and it was not really doing
the overall product justice.
I think the logic the original designers had was probably to make it
look like a "Transformer" but in my opinion and perhaps that of
it fails to stay in line with the overall look of the rest of the
flying aircraft and more serious electronics, it could have been
done a lot better, I thought.
I love having the options to play
with different setups and looks as this helps prolong the interest
level with models. I also think the mQX is a great compact platform
for a lot of cool stuff.
So here are a few of several
designs I came up , which are more in tune with a more stealth,
serious and fun cool look.
Other designs in various shapes and forms, both in the already well
established MIA Phantom (TM) Carbon pattern and MIA Edge (TM) colors
canopies will be offered, thereafter, still working on few others
and we'll be adding also other goodies to this MIA Upgrades -Blade mQX
Helis vs Quads: Although I am more pro the more conventional
RC helicopter, these "quad" rotor helis and in particular, the Blade
mQX, offers yet another level of fun. A great platform for adding a
keychain camera under the belly and just having fun around the
house, backyard or small park.
