That's a rebadged Walkera LM180Q or something like that, discontinued about 3 years ago. It was terribly unreliable, they couldn't give them away. It requires very delicate swashplate leveling and weight balancing. It think it still has endless pots on the board, too. They require constant adjustments because the gyro is an old style that's very sensitive to current flow and temperature. Watch the lower rotor head, too. It looks like metal but it was plated plastic and doesn't hold on the shaft very well. If you over-tighten the screws, they will strip out the plastic. xheli was selling out the single rotor FP version of this heli about two months ago. I would have bought one if they would have priced it reasonably, because I know how to fix it. They weren't getting any takers, so they decided to try to sell it without the fuselage. What a joke!
