If you want to go brushless you have to replace the motors with motor mounts and propellers and add four brushless ESCs.

You can go with geared-down or direct transmission.
My first attempt with geared-down transmission was not satisfactory, therefore I follow the Dylan/hotshot888 way, with direct transmission motors.

So I do not see why my quad cannot be called a brushless converted mQX
Or, I wonder how one could imagine a brushless converted mQX?
I doing something wrong?

Anyway, I agree with hotshot888: the board is what makes it an mQX.
For instance, with a real multicopter board you can do very fast flips while the mQX flips slowly, even with super motors
