Its also here ($400 US) ....

The thing with anything released by Walkera, it pays to hang back for a while and see what happens.
Most of them look good in the pics or promo vids, but the reality can be all too different. ⱺ⏝ⱺ

The one I have in the V100D03BL seems to work very well at my level - what it really could do with is Manny getting hold of a couple of these new models with the D Rx's in and throwing them around to see just how good they really are.

Be careful on those group buying in Hong Kong. I am not saying they are bad, but some guys abuse this method and rip money off from you. You may not get what you want, DOA, different items, different service, packages or even you never get it. I heard a lot from friends and online news, there are complaints about those promtional sales.

Of course, you do get the best deal sometime from those group buying but just be careful.

$113 is just about the normal street price of the CB180D in Hong Kong, so it is not a spectacularly great deal.

I cannot find any contact tel. no. or address on that website. This is normally a big put off for me. But PayPal is a relatively safe payment method. You should pay with your credit card via PayPal rather than using existing funds.

For what it's worth, I don't trust that website. They repeatedly spam these forums with multiple user accounts under the ruse of a new pilot or 'look at that price' post, as above.

1 USD = HKD 7.78

I bought a CB180D BNF for HK$ 560 i.e. US$71 a year ago from Modern Model.

I just bought a BNF 4G6s for HK$780 = US$100

I bought a M120d01 with 2801pro for HK$2400 = US$300 a few months ago.

The steet prices for Walkera in Hong Kong are generally lower than the Internet prices quoted by Hong Kong retailers.

It's a spam post and he is a shill pretending to question about this group buy. His user name has part of the name of the site in it so don't waste your time replying to him.

V200d03

Looks like a cool Heli. I saw one at WOW last week. Me thinks Manny, or DKFUJI will get to test it first. Probably good to wait on the results. I'm hoping to find out if current RX's are compatible with the heli, as i'm not ready to buy a new TX. I have two 2801PRO's. I also like the new Airwolf tri-blade too, probably an upgraded 4F200(LM), as long as it has the same programming as the 2618 & not the junk 2612! I put a 2618 in my 4F200 & it flies great!
Happy flying!

Just charged the battery for the v200d03 and did a quick flight with it. Think the newer walkera are getting better and better. Fly very nice out of the box. I think this is a keeper for myself.

I quite sure the current rx will work with the v200d03, have not tried it yet so can say for sure. But for new walkera heli they will all run with the DEVO system.... So it maybe easier to run the new sytem.......
