Despite the flight characteristics, lots of people like this type of heli. I've been ragging at people for a couple years now that they shouldn't buy them because they are poor learning tools and the motors and electronics are awful. The DH9116 is a good example. But, I can't get anyone to listen. I'd have better luck teaching my dog Algebra. I'm afraid ultra-stabilized and crippled FP helis are the new norm for FP helis. They seem to have replaced coaxes in the learning process.

Just an FYI, all of the CB100 / CB180 copies have one subtle difference from the original, maybe to avoid patent infringement. They position the flybar over the rotor head instead of under it. The flybar latency in this design causes significant movement damping.
