This partly explains why there are fewer problems with Walkera here. The only Walkera heli that had me completely outfoxed was the M120D01. It hovered perfectly out of the box but it near impossible to fly. I tried different gyro settings without much effect. I returned to my vendor who took a thorough look over it but it made little difference. I even changed receivers. My suspicion is that one it is in the air, there is some sort of vibration which caused the gyro to malfunction. After that, all my Walkera purchases flew right of the box, even without a test hover.
Even the V120D05?
