    They are both the same but i put a regular video downlink on the red one and the blue one has a DJI lightbridge system. They fly pretty well both in hover and forward flight. Oh and i have crashed them both and replaced the body twice already lol

    The bodies are pretty sturdy, there is just a learning curve just as there is with a Phantom i guess. Id say i have had about 25 flights with the VTOL and hundreds with various Phantom models

    I'm familiar with the red one and it is on my buy list, but they don't show, on their site, that they sell a blue one.
    Do you have links?

    SO to get the blue one i basically purchased another full body kit and painted it then moved all components from a damaged one to a new body.

    I did the paint jobs myself.
