If they go bad, it could be the end of February.

The V202 has kept MassiveRC alive, which could have gone belly-up from dealing with Hubsan. I'm still waiting to see if Hubsan does right by us and will post an update when I feel their attempt has been finalized. James, I apologize for not listening to you.

One other thing I'd like to mention is the Chinese people. While we all complain about the horrible quality of products coming out of China, I really feel for the workers. What can you expect for $.10\hour wages and exhausting hours. I hope they all get a chance to let off some steam and get some relaxation in during their much-needed holiday.


Thanks for your patience.

Whoaaaaa? Hubsan almost sank you guys?

Glad to hear the V202 has sold so well. It's still my favorite flyer.

MO,

I'm withthe V-man on the 202 as my favorite so far. If Hubsan is being bad they will be dead to me. Still don't like the nonstandard transmitter trims even though I've been flying the heck out of the X-4 in the house. So much so that my early stock batteries ( #1,#2,#3) are starting to get weak. Need more.

We're taking the V202 to the next level and show WL Toys that this excellent quad hasn't reached it's peak yet. The only thing the Hubsan is going to have over it is yaw rate when we're finished, (and if WL Toys listens to us and fixes that, even the X4 won't have that benefit over it).

The saying 'Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me' applies here. After this batch is gone the only thing well stock are spares for you guys as long as we can get them effectively-priced.

I think the V202 could be perfect with a few minor changes:

1. Flysky/Turnigy 9x protocol
2. Faster yaw
3. Come with a solid black V939 canopy (popular drone appearance)
4. Easier to repair via plug-in arms
5. Batteries on par with the U816 for slightly longer flight times.

Everything else is pretty much perfect. The props (colors, fit, built-in protectors), the lights (and ability to turn off), the stability, throttle, aileron, elevator, booms, feet, and durability are all excellent. I wouldn't mess with those.

I'd buy another one in a heart beat if either of the first two things on my list were addressed.

I'll give you a hint: I've already posted a dedicated thread to it

#1 and 2 will have to come from WL Toys.
#3 We're going to ask WL Toys to go back to old school RC days and give us clear canopies that we can paint ourselves from the inside
#4 will be addressed by MassiveRC
#5 Some of you have already purchased our new 300mAh batteries..........can you give us feedback please?

Hey Ben,

Yes, they're supposedly the replacements for the Mini Pet stock battery. I've tried them and like them. I would say they're between the Mini Pet original and the V202 stock.

When depends on Chinese New Year, how is that we're going to transplant the brain of the V202 into the Elvin body of the H36, which now comes with motor plugs (crosses fingers)

Were they in the last batch I bought?
Will the new Frankenquad be DIY or RTF?
If it's DIY you will be stocking the parts?
" " RTF you will be stocking the parts ?
I suspect one of the last two or both is/are a dumb question/s.

-They were in your last batch
-Still trying to decide to both, but RTF definately will be the primary option.
-So long as our suppliers sell us the parts without buying the quads, we'll be stocking them. We still don't know if the parts will arrive as described. If they don't then this could be a short-lived experiment.

It seems that showing manufacturers what we want has better results than telling them what we want.

MO,

Battery feedback:

Last batch doing well so far... no issues what so ever. However, they are my newest set.

Hi MassiveOverkill

I have the Hubsan x4 and im going to lasser some parts up at work for it, i have noticed that you sell some hudsans that are discounted due to damage . I was wondering whether you would sell the hubsan airtrame only (body motors and Rx board) that i could bind to my hubsan TX.

Iv been looking at the X4 and have come to the conclusion that i could shave 20 persent off its size by cliping 5mm off each side of the prop and having a
2mm gap between the props.

I will call it the Hubkill micro quad if it flys ok

Will laser it out of 3mm acrylic sheet.

Just a suggestion here, but why not get an H36, shorted the arms and wire up the X4 FC. I think the H36 might be the light frame out right now, and shortening the arms will make it even lighter.
