A rotor diameter of 200mm is more consistent with 100 rather than 80 size. The mCPX and Mini CP are really 105-110.

There seems to be some prestige associated with making the smallest CP. I can still see the mCPX but the Mini CP may have crossed the line for me. There must have been some engineering factors that prevented Blade and Walkera from going straight to the 100 size straightaway.

Apparently the photo has been removed from the Chinese forum and that's why it is not showing up here. The OP has changed the initial post to nothing as well. Apparently, there was also a video of it on a Chinese video sharing site and that has been pulled because of "copyright violations".

I wonder whether HH is behind all this?

Likely lol

It's be neat if they went even smaller

I don't see a 80 sized being that much difference

Then again; who knows lol

The way in that the photo was removed and that the thread was changed convinces me that it is real. HH actually has a sponsored forum at that Chinese RC site. It would be easy for them to complain to the admin to force the OP to change the post.

Well I posted a link to another site with a photo and it was deleted just minutes after I posted the link. So lets see how this works.

very interesting...

As many have said, not sure how practical it is or how well it will fly, but I'd buy one bnf just to play with it indoors. These things are ever shrinking, and so is my wallet!

Here is a picture of the HiSky FBL 80 for comparison. The frame is quite different which means it was not used as hoax in the nCPX picture.

Maybe Horizon has learned to wait until a model is closer to release before announcing it. I have 2 airplanes on order since early February.
A Nano CP would be a fun little toy, (which I would have to buy), but I would like to see something between a Blade130X and a Blade 300.
