11. Despite the differences, without canopy and battery, the Y and V models weigh roughly the same (within 0.2g by my scales)
I mainly fly the yellow because it feels mildly more stable and the skids are less flimsy looking. The components transferred from the V were a) batteries and b) the black/orange canopy, because it weighs a bit less and looks better imo.
I agree, except I didn't find any difference in binding the yellow or the white, my favorites, and the WL. The fisheye make the big difference in flight. Although the landing skid look more robust it won't really last longer.
