Would anyone by chance have a picture with both the master cp and 120 on it for real size comparison?

V200D03 is more advanced I think but less durable and way more expensive.

In particular, more on flight characteristics, durability - both from crash damage and normal usage, and wind handling. It's almost always windy where I live (the city is on a peninsula), so that's a definite factor. I'm impressed with how well my Mini CP can handle wind (at least compared to my V200, but being FP that's not a huge surprise) and for sure it's crash durable. I'm quick on the throttle so that's helped a lot, but still it's taken some hard knocks and, other than some canopy cracks, still keeps ticking.

I don't have huge flying areas near me so size is a factor. Until I get my transportation issues squared away, 450s are out. So something like the Master CP or the V120D02S are on my near-term buying radar. Need to fill up some model slots on my Devo 10. Heavy 3D is not something I'll be ready to do for quite some time, so that's not a consideration. Wind handling, sport flying, (very) mild 3D, durability, easy and relatively inexpensive repair, and the ability to take up a light cam or FPV gear are my main bullet points. Am I asking for too much?
Well, get the V120D02S 3AXIS VERSION 2 (not the latest 6axis V3).
Both flies great out of the box. You can make it BULLET PROOF with very little mods and $$s. The 6axis could "intervene" on FAST forward flights, the 3axis V2 won't. So, I am replacing my Rx with 3 axis, since I own the 6axis version.

MODS?

I have the V120D02S for a few days now (6 axis). I'm only flying circuits so no 3D. I see no problems with fast forward flight. I own the Genius also and tried 6 axis on this one when i just got it 9 months ago. Was a disaster and put it back to 3 axis and flies very well.
It's possible the 6 axis on the V120 will intervene but an experience 3D flyer tried the V120 and noticed no strange behaviour. So I think Walkera improved this 6 axis gyro dramatically.

That's true. The 6 axis is a great one and really great for mild 3D flying or "stationary 3D". The pros can easily correct any "tendencies" that the 6 axis could affect 3D flying. I can't
On the positive side of the 3axis, it has less or no limitation, so I'd prefer the 3 axis. Both Intermediate or advance flyer will enjoy it.

I've been only flying heli for 3 months, but had thrown countless hours already & progressed pretty well. No near as good as some. But i started doing flips & rolls the first month, even on my larger heli. I just got the 120D02S V3, and already noticed the "effect" of the 6 axis on my second day flying it. Was a tough decision spending extra $55 for the 3axis Rx, but again, the heli is lots of FUN, why limit my fun, so I just pulled the trigger.

BOTH HELIS USE THE SAME SPARE PARTS.

You have to do a lot of research before you buy a Walkera, but they haven't made a dud release since the Genius CP.

I flew the V120D02S with a 6 axis gyro the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. Honestly, it did not feel much different than the 3 axis gyro. However, it was noticeably much more stable, especially with slower flight. I didn't flip it that much because I was getting tail blowouts which I suspect were due to a slightly stripped tail gear. However, I managed to do a large number of ground hugging inverted circuits and they were certainly much more stable than the Mini CP.

I haven't tried full blast FFF because there are aren't any fields around which I can do that. But it seems great for mild 3D flying in a confined space. I will test it out in a larger field tomorrow to see whether there is much difference.

Question is how does the Master CP fly. If for normal flight as I do it's similar as the V120D02S New it would be a blast I guess.

Yes, hopefully, someone would chime in.

IMO, the 120D02S is the best heli you'd find for this sze or small helis. Nothing bits it. It could be flown just like FP but also a great 3D.. But best of all, It's very durable and will not kill the wallet. It's my first Walkera. All my helis are Eflite. Walkera did not disappoint me with this 120D02S.
