    I ordered an mjx bugs 6.And being new to this just wanted some opinions on it from those that own one.At the present time I own a jjrc h32gh/syma x5c and a visuo xs809hw that I love.I see a lot of good reviews on you tube and other places about the bugs 6.

    Should be fine, they make good products. I see spares are available. And unlike the Bugs 2 you can use regular batteries.

    This looks worth investigating, good reviews.

    Mjx seems to make some pretty good drones.

    They do for sure. My concern with the 8 is how well it will fly in acro mode. Not compatible with Betaflight so you can't tune it. And no way that quad gets 12 minutes on a 3s 1300mah battery. I fly my Bugs 3 on 3S batteries (1806 motors) and get about 12-14 minutes on a 2700mah battery without powering a vtx.

    I have one more question.I was out flying my quads today at a park and met a guy that said he started to buy one but they can have motor problems.Anyone know or has experienced this problem.He said he also saw some videos on you tube that mentioned that.I only found one video that stated that.

    I know the video you are talking about. But watching that video they crashed it a couple times before it had a problem which it then started working again anyway. Most likely they got something lodged in the motor and it came lose allowing it to work again after that. User error not the device.

    As already mentioned here if you can I would wait till the 8 pro comes out next month.

    The review I saw, the only way to get in/out of acro was a switch under the canopy.

    I'm a fan of MJX, but not sure about this one. I guess time will tell.

    Mine has shipped and on the way.I don't want to cancel it.And if the 8 is that good could end up with that too.

    1) Stay away from trees.
    2) You will probably crash (possibly a lot) - try to fly over grass.
    3) Stay away from trees.

    Have fun with it, Don. If you're like many of us, you will be smiling afterwards and ordering extra batteries while you're home waiting on the ones you have to charge.

    Ok got to fly it today.Flew my syma x5c and my visuo xs809hw first I always do ok with those two.Then brought out the 6 after I tumbled/cartwheeled and flipped it more time than I can count I think more than a gymnast at practice.Then I settled down a bit and started to find out for myself this is an awesome machine.It seems faster and more powerfull than everything else I own.Is it just me because it seems like it is heavier than some other drones.Most of all it took my abuse and time and time again all I had to do was set it upright and it was ready to go again with no damage.Do I like it no I love it.
