V100 RX - New Firmware

I wanted to jump on and let everybody know that testing of the new V100 RTF helis and receivers is complete. I won't beat the dead horse since Tom already explained everything, but I wanted to verify Tom's testing. We ran all instock helis and receivers, and throttle delay in flight is completely gone. In fact, throttle response is much smoother and faster, which takes some getting used to. I wouldn't consider this a first step FP heli though..I would recommend the CB100 or V120D01 over this for a first FP. For throttle shut down, things have been drastically improved, but the tail motor still has about a 1/2 - .62 second delay on shutdown. Won't hurt anything, and the main motor now "winds" down, stopping any of the flopping we all came to know and love. In my opinion, this is the absolute best Walkera is going to be able to do. The early start up of the tail motor on take off is going to cause a delay in shutdown. Just no way to have both with this RX/ESC combo.
