E-Flite Blade mQX and 180 QX HD
Out Of This World! UFO Alien Spaceship Upgrades
 
 
Nov 2013 E-Flite Blade revamped mQX (180 QX)
 
  
2012 MIA Upgraded mQX
 
Nov. 2013 E-FLITE has released a revamped  Blade mQX called  the Blade 180 QX HD with better stabilization electronics. Also with some interesting detail changes such as a very  similar MIA "C" Style  canopy, LG and camera mount for under belly "keychain style camera" , as we did with our original Upgrades we made for Blade mQX back in 2012.  Looks like our popular setup we designed for the mQX has rubbed off on the E-Flite design team.  Even the battery insert, from the awkward way in which it was mounted on the original mQX at 45 degrees with the more typical X mode, most people fly in, has now changed to a more logical straight insert  X mode undercarriage as we suggested with our MIA Fiberglass LG/Battery/Camera Upgrade mount and in our instructional You Tube videos for the original mQX.
 
Nevertheless, all MIA Upgrades are much stronger made from more durable materials than mass produced manufactured products.
Because of same frame architecture and dimensions between the Blade mQX and Blade 180 QX-HD,
All MIA Upgrade Canopies are interchangeable between these two products.
 

Coming Dec 2013 a new MIA Body with LG Srhrouds for the Blade 180 QX, will also work with the original MIA mQX Upgrades.

Why I made this particular kit available

I tried many other types of RC model navigation lights and the wiring and connections required with most all RC navigation lighting kits out in the market, made it difficult to install, especially with compact small models. They all require routing wires and making connections to external power sources. Also tiny wires are hard to handle and tend to break easily.  This forced me to look into alternatives and these lights have been the best option, so far. I selected the specific kit hardware to make installation easy and universal. The clips provided hold the lights securely and the bolt and nut feature makes installation to any model flat surface a snap! You can judge by the videos of our models with these lights, not only how great they look installed, but they provide great orientation reference since they follow traditional FAA lighting spec, red on the right and green on the left, model in front of you.
