I really wish WLtoys would take notice on the FX's and come up with their own 250 - 450 size FBL heli. We should all email them for this request and maybe they will listen.

Guess some missed the boat WL toys makes toys. Want decent reasonable 250/ 450? Walkera Master c/p $140. V450D03 $250.00 c/p. both fbl. Plus there are bHobby grade and proven birds.

That's true, but I think people look at the brushless, flybarless, three-blade, scale WLToys V931 and wonder why the V912 and V915 are still using yesterday's technology.

Not everyone wants a cp......... It is another step up the difficulty ladder flying skill wise....

FeiLun have shown that a well thought out Fixed pitch bird works well and is easy as to fly, there design ethos is lighter weight and attention to details which make a decent difference, result is a way better end product vs 912 / 913 for your $

V931 is FBL bl three bladed so its up to date sotra. No computer TX and RX's are hardwired to limits. V912/ V913/ V915 very old onsolete tech. no reason to come out with fly-bared helis this size. V911 fine as entry level basic heli.
I started helis with V911's/ Xidea 9958's/ V929 Quads and they worked fine. Three years lader they still make fly-bared birds? They do indeed have FBL. in small helis like V930 etc.
I bought V915 as I have Walkera 4f200 LM. No regrets as v915 is ok and looks nice. Full sized TX works fine with v929 quads. Plus V911's. Nice to blast arounf house and relax. WL toys could have swept the board clean if they stayed with frsky protocol and came on board with FBL helis for whole line. . Plus came with optional computer TX instead of T9X/ modules etc. No big deal for me as I have computer TX's. Newer flyer would have whole gamit of birds to chose from.
