I should have the MR25X tomorrow, it will be my first quad! I will be using it for FPV. Not much talk about these quads on here, anything to watch out for, tips etc.?

60% of the time, it works every time!

I helped a buddy with his MR25 when they first came out and the built in lost model finder feature beeping sound is a joke. Had to be within 5 feet to hear it which at that point you practically already found it. This in a quite environment, good luck in a noisy area.

They later came out with a piezo buzzer to add to it which he got and highly recommend.

The landing skids seem to be on the fragile side given the weight of the machine. Keep a spare set handy and of course plenty of props.

Given you are getting the second generation (X), no clue if they have addressed those two shortcomings.

Seems they got rid of the auto tilting camera that had a weak link to servo but at least it came with a spare. Camera is well protected but you never know.

Also seems to have improvised the esc replacement with a no soldering plug and play system. Hard to tell and if so, nice.

You will like it!

The MR25XP has the auto/remote camera angle adjustment, mine is the 25X with fixed camera and that is the only thing ive had to adjust (as a beginner) as it is set to 20 degrees. As im still at the hovering speed stage (FPV) I was looking at mainly sky which makes judging distances particularly the ground very difficult.

I might remove the landing struts actually as the quad will probably 'skid' better without them as it's very hard to get the quad stationary when landing FPV. Plus it will make the quad lighter.

In Acro Sport mode the roll and flip rates are insane! (LOS). Ive turned them down to 30% and it still faster than my helis and I like my helis fast for 3D! A word of caution to anyone about to try sport mode, use plenty of expo! Im at 30% expo and will probably go upto 40%.
