Thank you very much, I'll send them an email

I think you will find that the weight is based on a cubic measure ,not a dead weight.and that means that the dimentions of the parcel multiplied together with another figer [that I cant remember at the moment] comes to 1.14kg. This system has been used for many years.
Unfortunately ,you cant expect to receive a large parcel , [that is very light ] for the dead weight of that parcel ,as it takes the space ,than a heavier parcel would take.

Frank, your review was excellent! you do not have idea as it
helps beginners like me. I have just ordered one Jiuchon
Helipal, but I'd like your expert opinion on which
Helicopter is the best one, J9C002 or GW Xieda 9958? What is your opinion about the Trex 100? Better than the solo pro? Sorry for my English because I'm using the google translator.

Hi sergiopov,

I can't say which helicopter is better as I don't own a 9958 but to me it does look a little better than the 9C002.

I do have a Solo Pro and from what I can gather it is an overall better performer than the Trex 100.

At current I would say avoid the Trex 100. It looks great, very polished, but doesn't deliver. The main board seems to have issues with servos that go bad, the tail motor is a pain to replace and doesn't seem to live long, and there is a big chance you need to modify your heli to get it to fly well. Mine won't even hover steady, it's all over the place.

If you have gotten adjusted to your Juichon, and want something faster, a Solo Pro or Bravo SX would be a better choice.

That should be true, I received a reply from HeliPal, they confirmed weight and costs as I saw in shipping table.

TX looks like the small Spektrum from Eflite.
Is it compatible?
This would be cool

What would be cool is if it were like the old days, where any one TX could control any RC device regardless of brand.

I embrace 2.4G, but not the decision for every company to have their own damn protocol.

Well it looks like my 002 is going to be grounded for a while .I thought by buying a few spare sets of rotors and tail rotors that I should be OK.well it worked in a way ,as I have not broken any of them but I have just broken a flybar and helepal tell me they are out of stock.

Just buy a Solo Pro flybar, fits perfectly and provides a slight performance boost due to being lighter (lighter weights).

You can buy mine if you want for spares, hardly flown it so it's like new.

Thanks for the offer Frank.but no thanks
It's funny ,as I was pretty sure that the Pro flybar would fit,but when I contacted Helipal and they advised me that they were out of stock of the JC part,they did not suggest that I could use the Pro flybar. I wonder why??

For those that would consider getting this wall charger for their Solo Pro batteries, it won't work without modding. You can see the charge slots have 2 small ribs, so these lack room to accept the single key-rib of the Solo Pro batteries. These might accept the Bravo SX batteries though...

The JC chargers wouldn't accept the NE batteries, ribs or no ribs, as the JC batteries utilise a different battery connection. The JC batteries are the same as the MSR batteries (small, square, two pin plug.)
