nine eagles solo pro 260a verses WL- Toys v911

I am looking for a micro to go along with my double horse 9116.These are similar,and i can get the 260 for $5 more.Is there a reason to get the v911 over the solo pro.

Solo pro is a good lil heli, dunno about the V911 heli. The solo pro has immense forward speed for a little FP though.

Solo Pro V2 in wind (10mph) (1 min 16 sec)


I made this video when I had my solo pro, although the wind was probably closer to 5mph.

Solo Pro is nice, just don't crash it.

V911 RTF is inexpensive and BNF half that, flies great. If you buy a V911, be sure to crash it a lot and push your skill limits.

I have both:

iME they have similar durability and flight characteristics. The v911 is a bit easier to fly and comes with 2 batts and a charger. I believe the std Solo Pro pkg does not include a charger.

I prefer my modded Solo Pro because it is faster and more challenging to fly. But many people put hover stability at the top of their want list * yawn *.

Typical V911 comes with a swashplate that does not have a pivot bearing on the upper plate. So the SP260a swashplate is often used to replace the V911 swashplate. V911 Swashplates and carbon main shafts are now available.

Enjoy the SP260a. My eyes are not that great so I opted for the larger SP328a.
