Seems like this is the successor to the popular Solo Pro:

I wonder why they went back to the old banana shaped links again, even though they cause a phase shift in the head, making the heli move forward and a little to the right when giving forward cyclic. Perhaps the receiver will add a little left aileron to compensate for this. Otherwise it's a step back in flying characteristics...

The new model is hidden behind the curtain at the end of the video accompanied by soldiers, and what you see along with the robot, is an old version.
I do not seem appropriate to take it apart its fuselage, also because then you could see the improvements and changes in the new model ...................

The spare parts listed on that site that the pictures come from, have the old type of links listed as replacement parts, so based upon that I concluded that this type is being used once again.

Perhaps they are going to make 2 versions of the successor of the Solo Pro, just like with the coax. There is now the Bravo III which has a Hughes 500 fuse, and the Draco, which has the "fantasy" ultra light fuselage for maximum performance and durability. I can imagine they are doing the same for the single rotor, and in that case we can expect a "high performance" version which will be much lighter again. 33 grams is really heavy, adding over 4 grams to stock weight of a Solo Pro. That's like having 2 batteries strapped to it instead of one, and we know that won't make it fly better... ;-)

Looks like a parts list to all versions of the Solo Pro. I do not think they are going back to the old style.

I thought that as well, but on the parts list the same site has for the Solo Pro, they have the new style links listed...

Perhaps the old style links have less flybar strike because of the phase shift it has? I'd hate to think what could happen if the flybar start hitting that nice scale fuselage.

This would indicate that while the new model looks like the Hughes SX shown on that other website, the internals are different from either the old or current Solo Pro. I certainly hope so, as I don't see the point of keeping the parts the same, as well as going back to the old links.

Sounds logical enough. Let's hope they just listed the parts wrong on that site.

It looks really nice

I do not know how it would compare to the solo pro flying wise?

But it has allot of style, and appeal. I have seen some people modify there cb100's to try to look like this.

It's hard to explain but it looks more sophisticated.

I would not mind flying one around my living room.

I'm not doing a good job, I can create problems in my country .................................
But I want to clarify:
1) I've tested has the body other than the one presented to you

2) the links are not presented in those parts of the site
(Equal to the bravo III)

3) The main frame is different from the only pro
(1cm higher then-new CG)

4) the tail set is not the same length as the only pro

5) the tail motor is larger in size

6) the tail is closer to the rotor blade

7) x-ray is different with new gyro-free mixing

In conclusion: I can not anticipate if it might present problems in the future, but I can say for now:

1) which has a flight clean, maybe he feels a little weight, but does not move anything, (maybe with canopy is best)

2) very accurate, and faster if you request it .........

3) good-looking-good
