    Hey guys

    I have been looking for a bigger platform to support my sony nex 5.

    I Found this guy who is willing to Trade his F550 with 6 3400mah batteries and a spektrum dx8 radio system

    He is getting my stock phantom, with 2 original batteries, and a homemade flightcase...

    He is asking for about 175 $ for the Trade.

    Do you think that it sounds Luke a fair trade??

    Any other copters to consider for a sony nex5 ?

    Regards
    Lars

    Seems like a good deal...but just talked to someone today that said the vibration on the 550 is bad compared to the Phantom. Really bites because I just bought and built mine! Ugh

    Hey Lars
    A used quad? hmmmm
    I've got the rx100 working well with my phantom.
    Have a look at the y6 3drobotics

    Sure, if you don't balance your props at all. Running 9x5 Graupners, balanced properly, I get no vibes at all.

    It's a big jump, but the S800 evo would be my pick.

    you're def in for a different flying experience
    - should be much, much more stable and less influenced by wind.
