I've got around 30 flights on the GAUI X5 now and I am really enjoying flying it. It flies straight and accurate and carries itself well through manoevures. It isn't a heavy model, but not too light either, so it is nice to control on the air.
I have tried 6S 3000 mAh, 4000 mAh and 5000 mAh LiPos in this model. With the 6S 5000 mAh Thunder Power packs I use, I cannot fit the canopy, but the others allow the canopy on without a problem. other 6S 5000 packs that are shorter but wider will fit without a problem.
Nothing is wearing out on this well built and high spec machine. It is going well, and is a joy to fly. No issues, just a solid performing helicopter.

Here's a couple of flights using the BeastX MicroBeast flybarless controller on my Trex600LE FBL helicopter.
It it still early days with this system yet, but it is getting close to being spot on with very little nodding and other issues I've previously seen using the Align 3G system.
The mechanical setup (slop in the head) and frame weakness of the trex600 don't help with flybarless use (1.6mm frames are not stiff enough IMO). However, with that being considered, I am finding this unit to be better than the 3G unit in terms of damping the overall system and making the heli fly nice.

The following is a test flight of the Blade SR outdoors in mild winds (10mph).
The video was shot just as part of my testing this model from a beginners perspective, there is no wild 3D in this flight it's pure basic circuits and figure eights to get a feel for how it flies in the hands of a beginner.
