Walkera Lama 400D helicopter mini review:

Introduction:
Walkera had introduces a new ultra stable co-axial “Giant Lama” to the market with the new Lama 400D. The construction is very similar to the larger 450size cp helicopter makes this a very robust helicopter.

Feature:
As you can see the canopy is a slim line design very similar to larger helicopter. The rotor heads are made with high strength aluminum alloy. Like the late mode large scale Walkera heli’s the tail blade is powered by a small rotor for that scale appearance. The main frame feature one piece glass fiber main frame with aluminum motor and main shaft mount. With glass fiber tail support and tail fins. These parts may weight more than plastic counterpart but they make the heli much stiffer than similar heli on the market.

Flight impression:
Weight in at 640g (with battery), the Lama 400D is sure one of the heaviest and largest co-axial heli on the market. This translates into a very stable heli even at outdoor, light wind situation. The blade are made with very stiff plastic. Which give the heli a lot of lift but may break easily during crash compare to softer blades.

Conclusion:
In the war for big lama this Lama 400D is sure one of the top design with feature and materials usually only found in bigger 450size helicopter. These features make it react quicker than normal co-axial heli yet still offer the stability of co-axial helicopter. This is a good helicopter for pilots want to learn to fly helicopter before moving to the CP heli.

Pro:
Size, weight
Stable
Construction and high quality material used

Cons:
Size, weight
Blade may crack easily
