They are still selling the RTF package - 72 sold. Also the receiver board (which is probably the defective part) - 9 sold.

Three weeks ago James said they stopped production and the developer was working till midnight trying to fix it. They should have sorted it by know, but nobody knows...
I'm still waiting on some info on what to do with my useless unit.

Maybe there is something about transport that the receiver heavilly disikes.
Maybe its the servos themselves that are slow. (maybe someone could check and transplant one of their HCP80 v2 servos into their v1?)

I don't know as im just throwing ideas out there.

The Devo 10 would be better still, but almost twice the price and not as portable. I still want one though. Deviation makes these transmitters amazing.
Added a couple of switches to my 7E making it even better.

Now we have to wait for Hisky to deliver the new protocol and some good heli's. While my V933, FBL80 and HFP80 (all V1) are nice. My new HFP100 V2 has been disappointing. We need quality instead of brute power.

@wasp09 I really liked my HFP100 V2, with the servo rates maxed out it flew great around my work's parking lot. A couple weeks ago it flew away. It went up, and quit responding to any TX input, soon it was no longer visible. My old trusty V933 has taken its place as my lunch time stress relief.

I hope Hisky can bring something soon to the table that reminds all of us of what we found in their first generation Helicopters. Right now we have a 100s that eat main gears unless you double them up, and a HCP80 v2 with servo lag. I think the V2 FP heli have some lag also, but its not as noticeable when sport flying. I hope the 60 I have been waiting for will be problem free.

I would say the RTF HCP80v1 would be a good cheap way to get back into it. Then you could consider a deviated devo 7e or 10 down the road You'll also want to keep a little bigger stock of spare parts on hand, because it takes longer to get them....

I really like the hcp80v1 for indoor flying. I fly it inverted all the time - its great practice

I probably got a lemon HFP100V2, bad parts/QC.

I found the main gear on this hardly flown bird cracked already. If it cannot handle this lowly FP, the same tiny main gear won't survive on a HCP100S. Its FP head was badly installed. The plastic was so brittle that I broke 3 plastic balls off the blade grip and the swash trying to put the head back correctly. I don't like the 6 axis control either. The last one is personal.

That is not good enough for now.

NEWS - victzh has done a test build with a modified the hisky protocol to enable switching between 3g and 6g on the hcp80 v2 and it works

you can find the test build here http://deviationtx.com/forum/builds/...al-build#30226 but note it is only for the devo 10 and you use at your own risk, I imagine it will be properly integrated into a nightly and for the other devo's shortly

@jameschen072, thanks for providing me with the protocol info.
@subpixel, thanks for testing it for me - I don't have the model myself. It took 2 tries to modify it successfully, so thank you for the patience.

Great. Hope it would be available to 7E soon.

We can build from source if we can find the pull request.

Thanks.

I have bought and sold 2 DX6i (radios are like cars trade them in for new, switches ware out and technology get old)
I really like my X-6S it feels to me just as good as the DX6i did at a great price. I have had the back off and replaced the updated CP board and switches look as same quality as the DX6i. Yes My X-6S has exspo.

I have been practicing inverted on my 80 V1 and my v977.
My HCP100 not as durable as 80 V1 and my v977 and seems under powered.


I don’t have the H6 so cant say how it is compares. I have the HCP80, HCP100, HCP100S, HCP80 v2.
Get the HCP80 V1 its is durable and has power and replacement parts & motors are cheap. Stay clear of v2.

Is the V977 durable?

My WNCPX flies better than my V933 and FBL80 but space is tight for the BL motor making WNCPX more difficult to maintain. I ordered a set of V977 body parts from BG before Chinese new year.. My plan is to transfer the WNCPX electronics over to a V977 body when I use up my WNCPX spares. The V977 frame should give me more space and it seems thicker than the WNCPX frame which has to rely on the LG to be rigid enough.

However when the set finally arrived last week, I found BG sent me a V966 frame instead of the V977 frame I ordered. The bag has the V977 frame SKU sticker on one side and the V966 frame part number on the other. The content is a V966 frame.

BG has just shipped out a replacement. It would take another month to get it across in the slow boat. Hope they get it right this time.

I wonder if V977 body is a good choice. At least it should be better than the HCP100/HCP100S which is quite under design in terms of main gear, probably the head too if they are similar to my HFP100 V2.
