  1. I own the 3DR X8. After flying RC’s for some time, I have found this unit to be build of the cheapest material possible. It has no tolerance what so ever to a gentle roll over. The GPS stand is the first to snap – at the base. No problem just bought another one. The spacers holding up the top of the unit were the next part to just sheer away. Replaced with light alloy ones from my local HShop.. This unit is ‘impossible’ to see once it is 100 meters away. It has no lights. It’s impossible to see which way it is pointing, this tons of wasted time trying to navigate it correctly. The instructions for the ‘switches’ from autonomous mode to ‘alt hold’ to ‘loiter’ etc are literally back to front. ” In this manual” The first switch is a 3 way & the second switch is a 2 way. One the actual controler ( Spectrum 7) the first switch is the 2 way and the second is the 3 way.
    A replacement parts list is non existent.
    If you were thinking about buying the 3D X8 and placing a camera other than a Go Pro in it, expect to buy another gimbal. The one supplied only fits the former. One last thing, my X8 was delivered with an internal error in its main plate. Thus when placed on a flat surface, it’s only supported by 2 of its 4 legs. It uneven. Approching this issue with 3 DR, they have admitted ‘ mistake at the factory level’ and have offered to fix the problem if I send it back, however it’s The first of December and it may not be returned until Feburary – no mention of any replacement. The just signed off with …. “Its up to you” if you want it fixed or not. Just one more thing.. After sales service is slow. Takes 2 business days. I had this unit 2 weeks now. If you are at all unfamiliar with quad coptors, this unit is easily the most confusing as the lack of instructions and attention to detail left this new buyer having to search the internet for extra information on ‘how to’s’. There is an upside however, the X8 is plesent to fly – once you get it up there. The GPS works great. So far I have not been able to fly in ‘Follow Me’ mode as there are no instructions supplied. I guess if you love to tinker and solder stuff then you’ll love this one cause you have no choice but to fix it once it’s fragile parts begin to fail. Please note that I have only rolled this unit 3 times. Each time has been a major repair job and several trips to my not so local HShop.
    Accidents do and will happen this unit is not built for that senario.
