For $70, I decided to pre-order one. I figure I will gut it and use a Blade 200X or 300X head assembly and all Blade electronics. The dimensions seem to be more the size of a 300X and I have several unused 300X airframes (somebody was selling them for $35 on EBay). I'll take all the WL stuff I don't need and put it in one of the 300X airframes and give it to my grandson.

I don't like it at all, because it reminds me of a large version of the Walkera 5#6 that I had a while ago - and that son of a bitch gave me serious nightmares.

The Walkera 5#6 was a serious nightmare. I had two and keeping them in the air more than 30 seconds before something went wrong was a major triumph. I never had a voluntary landing with either one.

Scale type heli for $70.00 sounds pretty good. If T9X useable just might get one. Go bl main at least. Plus I have an extra Master c/p sitting around in a box.
Even have but please don't tell anybody D/H 9116 !! I think V912 is cloned 9116.

That's the big thing. A decent looking scale heli for $70 is quite a deal. Especially if it handles a little easier than the 130X Red Bull.

This sounds better and better and price is just hard to ignore. Plus it will fly as is for now.
I have UH-1 Blade Huey..it flys but very sloppy machine. Heli-Max MD 530 flys fine but kinda slow..looks awesome. I also have OB-105 130X unflown to date.
Plus have FAI body kit on Mcp-x and sorta scale looking.., It flys pretty darn good. I have OB-105 body kit smaller Blade and Solo-pro Brovo body kit for future projects. This bird would round out my Quest for real scale looking helis.
FBL would be idea but f/b will work also.

if the 912 is any guide, the high throw servo resistor mod and a lighter flybar make a huge difference for not much effort.

I remember two years ago with Bang good and then new release of V929.
It took a long time to get here. Good part still have it and still flys fine. I wonder when these will ship ?
