friend of mine is selling it to me for 300+ with extra batteries and propellers. he said it's brand new. I do have about 5 3dr solo drones and some other small/medium drones but thinking that this X8 might be good for my photography/video hobby. let me know and thanks for the feedback. appreciate it. BTW, he's including the GPC hard case too.I have a X8+ i got off ebay that was supposed to be trash.. Well from looking at the photos it looked like new. I bought it for 230 dollars and all it needed was a few screws. It has the better motors, fpv vtx, receiver etc etc.. I looked at the logs first thing and they were only showing the Tijuana manf facility testing only lol.. So I have flown it 20 times got it tuned up decent. I will be putting a SX260HS NIR on it or maybe something else QX1? Will see not sure I want to invest a ton. I also own a 3dr hexacopter last version they made and it was supposed to be ready to fly LOL. I paid $1700 for it at the time. Oh it flew okay but it wanted to leave the state and fly away.. It has the APM2.5 of which I made it the 2.6. After a few months of fixing the issues ie vibrations, compass etc it flew great. Still have it different landing gear and its the old man of the bunch I have. So is the X8 good ? Its decent but it depends on what your plans are cause a Phantom 4 these days is 700 bucks and its much easier to deal with. If you can get the thing for steal its a good deal but that's just my opinion.
thanks for the advise. I will keep you posted as soon as I got the X8. still work in progress.Simply yes that's a good deal. Esp with the case I wish I had one talk about a over priced product. Just be away that x8+ assuming it has the black motors has big balls so make sure you go and do auto tune n such so it flies how you want it. Now the hard part is finding a gimbal you are happy with and camera. Don't even think about a DSLR. I'd say Sony Nex size would be perfect. And there are plenty of gimbals that will work with a little mounting setup. Just get a good gimbal controller. Best of luck.
