The Q-BOT Micro is the first micro quadcopter on the market today that includes a 2.4gHz RF module allowing it to be used with your own transmitter. This means it can be flown with Spektrum, JR, Futaba, Hitec, Turnigy, Walkera and other transmitters*. The transmitter will simply need to have a trainer port (JR style 3.5mm or Futaba style 6-pin) and be capable of outputting PPM signal.
This micro quad features leading edge technology including a highly precise 6-axis gyro stabilization system making it ultra stable. Normally, building and setting up of multi-rotor aircraft requires lots of time, tuning and having to choose your own power system/components. The Q-BOT Micro takes away all of the complicated setup and makes it as easy as opening the box, charging the batteries, connecting the RF module to your own transmitter and flying!
The included 2.4gHz RF module can be powered several different ways. It has its own rechargeable 3.7V LiPoly battery pre-installed but can also be powered directly from the transmitter via the transmitter's charging jack (DC power plug included), or by the Futaba style 6-pin trainer port.
The Q-BOT Micro is very capable with plenty of power to spare. In normal mode, its stable flight characteristics make it stress-free for the less experienced quad pilot. Switch it to aerobatic mode (via your transmitter's GEAR channel) and it's very responsive for those looking to push it to the limits. When in aerobatic mode, the responsiveness is greatly increased which allows for flips, rolls and loops to be performed!
Features: • 2.4gHz RF module allowing for use with your own transmitter* • 6-axis gyro stabilization system • Ultra stable flight characteristics • Aerobatic flight mode allowing for flips, rolls and loops • Compact and lightweight design

No were in the manual does it say you can toggle flight modes, this does not come with self leveling (maybe im missing something) but i have been tinkering with this little quad for days now, and im sure flight modes cant be changed, but i know that if you change the signal on the RF modules, channels get swapped, most Transmitters will support different signal. I can run it under all signals with turnigy 9x but must swap the stick set to do so.
With research on the net, there are couple of dedicated threads on forums for this micro quad, with alot of useful information.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
I have a Frsky Taranis X9D mode 1 set on "Slave".
Binding was not a problem, but when I want to fly only 2 motors are spinning at full throttle.
CH1 is Ail
CH2 is Thr
CH3 is Ele
CH4 is Rud
with this setting the Right front and the right back motors are spinning.
I can stop them by pulling my AIL stick fully to the right.
When swap the Thr and Ele CH, like this
CH1 is Ail
CH2 is Ele
CH3 is Thr
CH$ is Rud
then the BACK motors are spinning at full speed.
I can stop them by also holding my AIL stick fully right.
Please help this newbee...............
You need to set the endpoints, Set the rudder endpoints to 120 % and then try it, Leave the rest at 100%, if it flys to one side, use the trim to make go to the right direction. If the 2 motors on the right are only spinning , trim left ail and if only the front to are spinning trim back the ele.
I left my module with its internal lipo plugged in turned on and connected to my 9x, it completely drained my Tx battery and the internal lipo started to leak I ve replaced the lipo but now the module doesn't work,it lights up but doesn't seem to power up the radio like it did before, any suggestions?
Its fun but the range is really bad with the little included tx unit. Becomes unresponsive about 4 feet away even with all the batteries charged. Also the included turnigy cable fits in turigy's own 9x, but will not deliver power to the unit!! I feel like the polarity is switched. Overall a great idea but problems with the little transmitter make it unusable.

I received mine on 03/02/2013.
I have tested the unit this morning in a gymnasium.
The range is really good, about 20 meters (>60 feets), i didn't try more because its easy to lost it ^^
Quad is strong and accept all your crashs.
I used a futaba t8fg super with futaba training port in mode 3 and that's why i bought this one. usually, it is sell in mode 1 or 2. With this one, you program mode as you want.
You can use it outdoor, i did it
I am so happy, it's a great deal.

très bon petit quadricopter, j'utilise la prise écolage futaba sur ma turnigy 9XR.
pour les débutants pensez à réduir les débattements sur votre radio, 70pcnt c'est pas mal.
Attention à l'orientation de votre antenne sinon perte de signal à faible portée.
très pratique le petit chargeur.

This quad is great. It's more powerful than I expected and handled a few pretty bad crashes without breaking anything. The props come off the motor shafts in a crash, but they're easy to push back on.
Careful setting up your channels. I found I had to reverse the throttle channel, when I powered it on for the first time it went nuts and put a couple of small cuts in my leg.
Once I'd got the channels sorted and added some expo it flew great.
