Bang good has some good prices but Master was never one of them. I bought my two from X-heli @$109.95 - 5% discount. They do have shipping charge.
That was few years back and no longer carry it last time I looked. OR famous Out of stock.
Master c/p with bl kit and WK7-6-9's can yeild pretty decent sport heli. If you change servos before you damage them you can use them for larn dart foamie.

I wish I had heeded the warnings about walkera plastic geared servos. Folks, if you have a Walkera heli with plastic geared servos, get rid of them BEFORE they fail, and they will fail.

I had my V400 up pretty high and it was getting a bit further away than I was comfortable with so I started to reel it in a bit. All of a sudden I heard a little noise and it rolled over and went down hard. About $75 worth of repairs, basically a total rebuild. By the time all was said and done all three servos were stripped, frame bent, blade wrapped around rotor, main shaft bent, etc.

I will be rebuilding it soon with metal gear servos (still walkera, but at least metal). I wish I had replaced the servos before this happened...would have been much cheaper and easier. I have a Master CP, but luckily it has already been upgraded to metal geared servos.

No not feel alone about V400. I remember the thread on this heli and most comon failure is servos and that top frame. The G400 is same heli. I do not know if WK7-6-9's work in V400 as direction has to be the same. you can not revrece servos from TX due to WK Gyro. V400 uses WK7-6-5's. Master uses WK 7-6-6's. The M/G servo for Master is WK 7-6-9's .
Master c/p bl doing fine. Sadly its days are numbered and need to move on. Not a thing wrong with it but flying more agile helis. It may take awhile before it is retired.

Got real quiet about Master. Very good heli for those who want something bigger without going to big like a 450. With m/g servos and bl makes for pretty solid sport heli.
