This also means, that hardly any of the BOL parts will be compatible - the shaft will be thicker, the gears will be smaller, the swash will have no center ball, the frameposts will be different, so even the landing gears will not be a direct fit.
But now I also get why it took Blade soooo long to release that - first all the traces of the Twister (which was sold at hobby lobby once) had to be gone, to not interfere with the CX4 money making
Well, I know a thing or two now (and the CX4 WILL actually be of good use for me, but I also know there is no need to spend the 230bux on it ...)
Sven, do you think Blade bought out JP Perkins, I believe that's who had the Twister helicopters? Since they copied the Twister you would think there may be a connections, or not? Anyway it looks like you nailed it down, so since you have the barebones you thinking of just ordering electronics from Blade or what? (lot of questions)
edit: It's hard to believe they were pulling 15 minutes on the 800 mAh battery. I would be lucky to get 5 minutes with a 800 mAh in my L400 helicopters.
