    Here's a mini review on a pretty cool quadcopter. XK Alien comes in several forms: 1) without camera 2) onboard camera or 3) FPV camera system
    The model I received was sent to me from Lightake.com for an independent review. I did a video review on my youtube channel about this quad and I'm sharing that here on this thread. I'll post the specs of the quad, then give my thoughts about it and then I'll have my video review which is an unboxing and flight demo.

    My thoughts
    I'm happy with how this model flies. I own an older model called the WLToys Skylark and this quad reminded me a lot of that one. I really liked the YAW rate for this quad, even in the lower rates it makes it easier to fly IMO. Also being an XK product, it's protocol is compatible with the FUTABA radios. So using the stock radio it's very suitable to new and intermiedate skilled pilots, and experienced that have FUTABA radios can unlock more control for sporty flying to suit their advanced skills. Lastly this quad is unique and has a great look to it, kudos to XK for creating a slick looking drone.

    Finally, here's my video review of the XK X250 Alien!
