Walkera V450D01
 
OK the Flybarless series big brother is coming soon, and here is a thread in which to talk about it.
First up a video of it in action...three pilots give it a try in a cramped park in China? Pilot #2 cannot fly it, but the other two seem to have no troubles...

features

1). The integration of 3-axis gyro and receiver, with adjustable flight parameters, makes more stable flight for the beginner and more accurate operation for the experts.
2). The metal rotor head cut by CNC, designed without flybar, features low power loss and great efficiency improvement.
3). CNC-machined tail rotor head is driven by belt with high efficiency.
4). Its main frame is made from 1.5mm high strength carbon fiber. Artful motor fixing method and clever battery frame design satisfy a variety of hobbyists.

*Personally I like this based primarily upon the head design....it looks easy to setup and maintain...or am I wrong? Thoughts??

Sounds like russian and looks like it too or some derivitive therof. Cant wait for this to hit the states, as im sure many others have been waiting for a cheap flybarless 3 axis 450 heli. Or at least the rx, Id be happy with just a full size 2801 pro rx that I can put on a 450 that I already own :) Walkera RX's are usually no more than 50.00, and that would be a real treat.

Walkera HM V450D01 Helicopter with 2801 pro $379 from Helipal

Looks like they fixed the tail servo issue by using an aluminum case servo for cooling? Anyone know what servo it first came with? I've sent a note to Helipal asking if they'll be selling a BNF version.

#11 thloh85 Nov 19, 2010 07:13 PM

I heard that BNF version will be here in about 3 weeks... Now only RTF versions are available.
Looks cool, I'm keen to get the receiver and make a FBL 250, should save a lot on the gyro... :D

Just got my v450d01 last night. Charged up the battery,adjusted my throttle curves,trimmed it,and now it flies sweeeet!!! Flies freaking stable.I highly recommend this heli!:)

#15 nooblet Dec 05, 2010 08:49 PM

Hi guys,

I just got my v450d01 yesterday and I broke it today! LOL...

First problem was the gyro - it is acting weird...

The second is the servo...

Anybody knows an upgraded version of these parts? They are all out of stock by the way... It is my 3rd helicopter and I am pretty much still brand new to this hobby... I have flown helicopters for around 3 months...

Please advice on how to handle my situation.

Thanks!
