With a ridiculus control range of 30-40m, this model probably uses their new “Q2x2” protocol XN297 based …. How is possible to offer such control range for a FPV model? Are they crazy ?. More the lens mount seems to be a M6 model so almost impossible to install a lens with a wider FOV. Future WLtoys fiasco ?
