The Quadcopter Blade Nano QX Review
13 m Control Range
25 min Recharge
7 min Flight Time
This Blade Nano QX review describes the features of this amazing little quadcopter. This quadcopter is small, but it has a lot of technology packed into it. It features the new safe technology stabilization system which uses a 3 axis gyro, and 3 axis accelerometer. The agility mode only makes use of the 3 axis gyro, allowing you to perform flips and fast forward flight
The blade nano QX quadcopter is designed to be flown indoors and is an excellent choice for those starting out with learning to fly a quadcopter. The prop guards keep the propellers safe and allow you to bounce off of the walls and hit the ceiling. This allows those who are learning to fly a quadcopter not be afraid of damaging their new aircraft. It takes the fear out of flying, fear of crashing your quadcopter. The prop guards also prevent damage tv screens, furniture, or scratch up your walls while you learning to fly.
Battery and Flight Time
The battery that comes with this quadcopter has a 150 mAh capacity. You will get about 7 to 8 minutes of flight time, depending on how aggressively you fly. You should pick up a few spare batteries to give you longer flight times, and more fun with this quadcopter.
Be sure to initialize the battery, that is plug it in, while the quadcopter is on a flat, level surface. It is not always possible to use a perfectly level surface, so you may need to apply some trim.
There is a low voltage cut off indicated by flashing red and blue LED lights on the quadcopter. When you see this, be sure to land quickly before your quadcopter falls and crashes. Do not try to use or discharge the battery past this point, otherwise you will ruin the battery and it will not work again.

Pros and Cons
Great for indoor flying and and protecting your drone.
Extra spare parts included
For when you crash and need to fix your drone.
Very clear instructions
Unlike many instructions manuals, this one is good.
Not great in winds
The lightweight makes it handle poorly in winds.
Short flight range
The drone handles well, but has a short control range.
This drone does not come with a camera.
This quadcopter comes in a ready to fly model, and a bind and fly model. The ready to fly model comes with a controller, while the bind and fly does not. Be sure to get the exact version that you want.
The controller that comes with the ready to fly version of this quadcopter is typical of lower end controllers. It fits well in the hand. Though if you do own a spectrum radio, you are better off getting the bind and fly version.
Please be sure that the throttle on the controller is pushed down before you activate the quadcopter. This will prevent unfortunate accidents at the start or a runaway quadcopter.
The flight characteristics of this quadcopter are very impressive. It has a very smooth, and stable flight dynamics and is very easy to fly. It maintains a very stable hover, especially in stability mode. You can pirouette this quadcopter with minimal effort. It will rotate in space, and not fly off in any direction.
The stability mode restricts how much you can pitch and roll, so it makes for smoother and calmer flight. When in this mode the LED light on the quadcopter is a solid blue. The agility mode removes the roll and pitch restrictions and allows for more maneuverability, agility, and speed. In this mode, the LED light is a solid red.
There are also two rates. In the high rate, you can pitch and roll faster, but less in the low rate. The advantage of the low rate is that you get much better control over your aircraft, allowing you to better learn its behavior and response.
Most other small quadcopters have very twitchy flight dynamics. However, the stability controls of the Blade Nano QX addresses this problem and provides for very smooth flying.
This little quadcopter flies best indoors. You can take it outdoors, but be aware it is not great with handling winds. The stability only allows so much angle of attack, so it can’t handle winds that well, though it can in agility
