Mind made up, I'll use the rotordiameter in the future. Seems the most logic way to qualify them.
while that would be the most logical, unfortunately when you discus the specific heli, you have to pretty much use the name the manufacturer gives it to avoid confusion, and since there are no real standards, especially for the newer microhelis we are pretty much out of options if we want to be sure we are discussing same heli

maybe a weight class might be more appropriate?
