Review: Blade Inductrix

I’m not going to lie when I say that I’m certainly not first in line for any of the cool quad-stuff that comes into the office. Part of that may be that I’m not the best flyer – I’ve put my share of flying machines nose-first into the ground (and into trees).

Estes Proto X

Upon initial inspection of the Proto X when it arrived at my house, I was amazed at just how small it actually was. I read some pre-release specs and reviews of it and was anxious to see how well it would perform given its small size. The quality and construction of this diminutive quad is very good considering its price.
