    Great Deal!
    Color:Purple Size:PNP
    Pros:
    I'm satisfied with GB's customer service! The first shipment was lost, and after some time and follow-up, they replaced my item.

    This quadcopter is awesome. I have had zero issues with it so far.

    - Plenty of power on 3s. 850mah gets me about 4.5 min flight time. I have not tried 4s but it can handle it.
    - Strong frame, has withstood plenty of crashes.
    - Powerful VTX, I have not had any video issues.
    - Stock PIDs are fine for beginners. Experienced pilots may want to tune them.
    - Action camera mount is not really suitable for a GoPro. I use a Firefly Micro cam on it and it works well!
    - Quadcopter performs so well, I have not wanted to upgrade to a 5" quadcopter yet.
    Cons:
    - Battery strap is useless. If you order this, order some decent small lipo straps.
    - Camera lens needs hot glue to stay focused.
    - Tighten all screws and use loc-tite to keep them in.
    - Use sandpaper to round the edges of the carbon fiber arms (and battery area), then superglue the edges to help keep it laminated. There are YouTube videos on how to do this.

    FPV Racer
    Color:Blue Size:PNP
    Pros:
    Great light weight Quadcopter good for smaller parks where you would not use a larger 5" quadcopter. The quad is great for the money. It is fast and made with good stack, motors, camera and frame. Best battery size is 4S 650mAh with a high C value. Dry weight is 132 grams. If your looking for a 3" quad and if it is on a flash sale buy it. Watch my YouTube video at the following link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OM4-bvt3g8c
    Cons:
    Props in view of FPV camera, Can't read channel on VTX need hole in top plate. Replace the battery strap with a real strap.

    Arguably the best bnf out there, not just best 3 inch.
    Color:Blue Size:PNP
    Pros:
    Excellent quality motors and frame.
    The props it comes with are durable.
    Flies great out of the box.
    Comes with betaflight and easy to update.
    Comes with wires already soldered ready for any ibus/sbus/speksat receiver.
    Easy to use stackable vtx is nice.
    Betaflight OSD built in to the setup is very useful.
    UFL connector on VTX makes swapping antennas very tidy.
    Cons:
    Camera quality is not the best. I think a 2.1 lens with slightly wider view angle would be nice but its personal preference.
    It would nice if it came with spare props.
    HD camera mount is a little weak, needs some reinforcement.
    Comes with an XT30 connector - I'd rather an XT60 for the batteries I use and the current that this will pull from them.

    still top 3inch
    Color:Blue Size:PNP
    Pros:
    this is my 2nd xjb145. my previous xjb145 i took the guts and placed it in a Massive Droner 3 inch frame. super awesome quad. i love 3 inch and above quads. anything below 3inch is just so underwhelming. the motors always feel great even after so many flights. My diatone m3 is faster and lighter but the motors dont feel as good after afew flights. the flame 1407 seem to retain its quality alot longer than the 1408 edge motors.
    Cons:
    dipole antenna sux. i replaced it with a furiousfpv bigmac antenna which is by far the best antenna i have used. its like a mini pagoda. lipo strap is ok. wires on the motors could be alittle shorter to save weight.

    The XJB is a good quad
    Color:Purple Size:PNP
    Pros:
    I love the build quality and components are top spec. I would buy another because of it. It flys pretty well out of the box. Make sure you get the Gemfan flash 3052 props as the stock ones are not as good and get a good battery strap. This quad will run on 3S and 4S and I use the 850mah 4S mostly and love it.
    Cons:
    The only thing I don't care for is the lack of extras you get in the box. You don't get much and the battery strap is not very good but besides that it is amazing. I also noticed there was no sticky pad under the quad for the battery. That is a must for this quad as it is quite fast.

  • HGLRC XJB - 145
    PNP-version
    Color:Purple Size:PNP
    Pros:
    - fast shipping and a great price.
    - nice processing
    - good components
    - with 850 4S batteries it's really a killer
    - yet satisfaction
    - the camera seems OK
    Cons:
    - The battery handle must be replaced with the standard. So far I do not know what is appropriate.
    - Attention! On sharp edges at the battery inlet. Shake the carbon frame.

    Great 5" Racer
    Color:Blue Size:PNP
    Pros:
    It flies great with so much power with 4s 1300mAh batteries.Very smooth in the air.

    AFHDS 2A receiver it came with performed nicely with my fs-i6. I haven't done the range test but 200m was not a problem.

    Craft is considerably lightweight and I would recommend it to anyone starting FPV.
    Cons:
    Camera could be better, I had some trouble viewing the screen when I was facing towards the sun.

  • Alick
    XJB 145
    Color:Purple Size:PNP
    Pros:
    Flies great out of the box, very powerful motor even on 3s battery.
    With 3s 450mah or 550mah battery you can around 2:30 to 3 minutes flight time.
    Also, the unit i received is newer version with TX20.V2 , it can switch up to 350mw.
    Cons:
    VTX is pretty hot if leave it idle.
    Camera lens is kind of loose, need to put some hot glue to keep it intact because the stock lens is too short to insert a lock screw

    HGLRC XJB - 145
    Color:Blue Size:PNP
    Pros:
    Nice packaging, blue version quad is nice
    Good electronic
    Frame feels study and well made, motors are light, should handle crashes well
    came with BF 3.2.3
    Good specs for a ready made quad but
    Cons:
    No camera osd menu cable, I've got some but seriously.... and no user manual for the camera too

    Yellow sbus wire doesn't work with Flysky IBUS receivers, need to solder on RX3, no information about ibus in user manual. Certainly more people are using ibus than PPM nowadays.

    Loose camera lens that must be focused and glued
    vtx gets super hot very fast and antenna needs to be glued too

    Motors are from different batches or from an unsteady production with slightly different air gap / magnet qualities, I would not pay 45$ or more for a set. I was expecting better quality than racerstar BR1407, it's lighter but quality is not better. I tried KK/sunnysky XT1406, they are best quality for the price and super lite.

    Use the battery strap for your fishing rods

    Too long motor wires that keep the heat on esc and transmit vibrations between esc and fc, HGLRC should build their own stack a better way

    must remove the top to access vtx

    still a good quad
