The official HiSky discuss anything thread

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT INFORMATION

**********************ATTENTION HiSKY AIRCRAFT OWNERS******************************

Please note that the names of HiSky products have changed:
FBL100-> HCP100
FBL90 -> HFP100
FBL80 -> HCP80
FBL70 -> HFP80
FF120 -> HMX120

All future products will follow this naming scheme
"H" prefix, followed by type (CP= collective pitch, FP= fixed pitch M=Multirotor). With multirotors the airframe type will be indicated by X or H (yup you heard me :P )

Lots of very exciting stuff on their way, stay tuned!

ORIGINAL THREAD BELOW[/CENTER]
This used to be the HiSky FBL70/90 preview thread,
but I thought that it might be more useful to everyone if I changed it to a discussion on all HiSky products. HiSky will be monitoring this thread so if you guys have problems with your aircraft, please let yourselves be heard!

The current lineup of HiSky helicopters and quads include:

The FF120 quad (a.k.a. Hobby King Qbot)
By far the smoothest quad I've flown. Hands on and very, very maneuverable.
Thread by Bulesz: HK Q-BOT Micro 6 axis BNF

Available here


FBL70 (a.k.a. WLToys V955)
Hands down my favorite heli so far. A 4 channel FP that feels like a CP!
Here's my review:The HiSky FBL70 Review

Available here

FBL 80 (a.k.a. WLToys V933)
A very capable 80 sized, 6 channel CP
FyreSG's review: HiSKY FBL80 CP...

FBL90 (a.k.a. WLToys V944)
Another very grown-up FBL FP.
Here's Jlcamp7's review: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1876524

Available here


FBL 100 (a.k.a. WLToys V922, Hobby King FBL100)
One of the most popular CPs out there thanks to WLToys' V922. I have 2 myself!
FyreSG's review:V922 review

Available here as the HiSky FBL100
or
Available here as the WLToys V922
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

These helis and quads are all made by HiSky, the rebranded ones (even the WLToys ones) are NOT clones! They are all made by HiSky for the various companies to their specifications.

You should change your title. The Blade MSRx is smaller than either of those.

Main Rotor Diameter: 7.13 in (181mm)
Tail Rotor Diameter: 1.46 in (37mm)
Gross Weight: 1.09 oz (31 g)
Length: 7.44 in (189mm)

The quoted price is for the heli only? Or if its the price for a RTF, what kind of transmitter? And have you actually received the helis?

I haven't received the heli yet..I'm testing the 70 while Jamie will be testing the 90. The quoted price is for a RTF set with a basic 4 channel remote. I believe that you can upgrade the remote for 20-30 bucks more (to the 6 channel HiSky X-6S)...which is the tx we'll be testing these 2 helis with.

here we go: stock tx for both of these helis


and for 21 dollars more:


The X-6S is apparently compatible with all HiSky helis and the WLToys V922 (which is a re-branded HiSky FBL100).

@Daryoon, I didn't take those unfortunately...BG's photographer did :P
That said, the review is going to be written in Taiwan instead of smoggy Beijing..so hopefully it'll be a good change of scenery compared to my usual reviews

@Jamie, I think yours is on the way as well!

Looking forward to this review, these seem like a good step between my V911 and Vitality H36 quad, but before a more difficult micro CP like the V922/FBL 100.
The price seems a bit high when you compare it to the V922, but eh, the FBL100 is around 140$.

I'd like to ask a few questions in advance for the review:
Do these work with the HiSky HT8 module ?
Does the difficulty sit between a V911 and V922 nicely ?
And why does the FBL70 look so fat and lazy with that huge chin :P ?

Cheers John_Edward,
I'm waiting for the FBL70 to arrive in snail mail.. so I'm still waiting too :P
I can answer some of your questions though

-The FBL70/90 are both compatible with ALL HiSky transmitters and modules
- What huge chin?

The X-6S looks like a nice radio. Anyway there's a video of the 70 FBL up at banggoodTV..seems it has that weird looking "pelican" canopy though.

I notice these are using linear servos.

Mine arrived with the very pretty blue canopy as seen on Banggood's website...hopefully you guys would get the same one too.

Been flying it around all day and writing up the review at the moment..
I think this is probably the best FP helicopter that I've ever flown. Stay tuned for the review!
