Soooo... I made a spreadsheet of them, and thought I would post it here.
Includes list of rebrands, protocol info, RcGroups thread links and some other snippets for each quad.

It's incomplete but anyone can edit it (hint hint).

Textlink in case the image breaks.
This looks great. I have one request that could make it super helpful: Include the release date with each model - that way we know how old they are and might have a better idea of when an upgrade might be due.

I wanted to check if Benma has any new offerings, then I saw this angry banner on their frontpage :

(Amended version) "We will fight with Hobbyking. Any items that Hobbyking had ordered from us, we will not sell them. Also, we will never do business with Hobbyking again!"

http://benmahobby.com/

I wonder what happened between them.

I find that a bit strange and funny. Benma wants the world to know they have a problem with Hobbyking but doesn't give any other details. So are they looking for moral support or what? Do they want their loyal customers to boycott HK? They gave no clue what HK did to piss them off. Very interesting this RC industry, there is personality behind each company.

Yeah, I'm trying to find out too.

It's complicated relationship between HK and Benma. They share similar products such as V911, V929, and even the latest CX-20 (HK calls it Quanum Nova).

I hope WLtoys or CX-Hobby (Cheerson) can come up with something like this!
