being this is not a HH brand the price will be a little cheaper..
even Hobbytown is now desinging and building there own RC to cut out HH and save from the prices HH charges them..
just saying
This is what I have been thinking as well. I am quite sure that this is the manufacuter of the MCPx as they hold the patent for the linear servos used in Efight planes and helis.

But we just don't know what sort of contract that the manufacturer has with HH. Whether it is complete exclusive or not. It is extremely rare for one Chinese manufacturer to rely totally on a single customer for business. Not even Foxconn relies totally on Apple. The MCPx is not sold in China and so there is a void there.

This is the manufacturer of the HiSky FBL 100

It is based in a different region of China. However, it seems very odd that a manufacturer that has little expereince with manufacturing helis suddenly come up with a 100 CP, albeit a copy. You have got a similar situation with the V911 which seems to be a clone of the Align Trex 100, but it is likely that both comes from the same source.
