The Walkera is a bit faster, smother and hover better. The F45 is a pleasure to fly, simple fun compare to the wet hands V200D01 flying. With the V911, the F45 in the only helicopter I bought twice.
Thanks, just to be clear - I'm not trying to compare to or replace the V200, I'm starting to like it and my hands are drying out with experience.
I am looking to replace my CX with something of similar size with a lot of built in stability for night flying. This is usually in my back yard that has about a 50' flyable diameter below the leaves that narrows and then opens up with altitude, which is only achievable when the wind dies completely.
So it is not a big area. My nearby flying area is much bigger and not that I won't fly it there, but I don't need it for there.
I don't care if it slips or wobbles so long as it has a very strong tendancy to stay upright! Is this it? Simple fun in the dark with no stress is what I am after!
