Not saying much about Battery, receiver /gyro . The more they add and change, the more I think they would have to consider a different battery and receiver options.

also note that they didnt show it actually flying or flipping much

though am sure it will be possible on this setup

yes, and I am sure there will be a vp 4#3b flown a week after these are out!

bears watching, but not with bated breath

ps- drthdrk- you need to get an #8 so you can make us some cool canopies and fuses!

would be easy for someone of your skills, and lots of lifting power

and the stock canopy is useless- am predicting strong need for your work in the future

best about this new heli is all the new parts that can be use for mods... like the vp tail, the shaft drive etc, etc... i dont care if the walkera BL or the 4-1 are bad - just put some decent stuff in and use the mechanics etc

Man...& I just got the 4G3 too. Oh well. I'm using it for learning; my first "real" heli will be an Align or Gaui, so I'll probly skip the 4G6 altogether...

Yep I agree. Thing is, unless you have really big rooms, you can't do much inside with a 4G3...that doesn't get boring after 10min, that is. It feels way too confined. You really need a big backyard or park where your 4G3 can spread its wings. But at that point you might as well go with a just 15cm larger rotorspan Trex250 or whatever.

So then why even consider these small walkeras? You can still do more in the same flying area since it is smaller, and they're cheaper to run (parts, etc). A bit frustrating though because I find the reliability, uniformity (e.g. every Walkera LiPo batt. I have is wildly different in performance) and overall quality questionable. But you can get an entire set including radio for just over US$300 tho; so I can't expect too much I guess.
