Thats another 150grams. Looking at around 370grams AUW. That is some really high Disc loading there. That is amost a 50% increase in weight over the Hurricane 200.

Look at it this way... imagine flying a Blade CP on a 430mm disc instead of a 550mm disc.

I hear what you are saying I used to have CP2 at around 320g AUW and it was flying like crap outside due to wind. 222g CopterX + 150-200g of electronics = Esky King V2 which cost around $80 for barebone. I was just checking videos on youtube and I didn't see any good pilots flying EP100-EP200 besides demo flight. I know for sure that I won't be able to fly such a small helicopter here in Chicago, it is always windy and it is almost impossible to fly small helicopter. I was flying my CopterX 450 a few days ago in 10mph and 20mph gust wind and it's not as noticeable as flying a small helicopter in 5mph wind and 10mph gust. I guess CopterX 200 would need a higher head speed around 4500-5000rpms to be able to keep in the air around 400g AUW. EP200 head speed 4000-4500rpm. The funny thing Ehirobo selling 200 but they don't sell yet any parts for it.
