Looks like a 120's Genius. Everything is ultra durable, except ...tail gear....

I really wish they'd called it the Genius 120 CP. Isn't there already a V120D02S?

Where's the 6-Axis/3-Axis switch? I hope this isn't going to be locked to the 6-axis mode. The rx shows two switches but has one labeled as Not Used.

well i bet i know why there is no 6 axis on it.....cause the 6 axis is causing so many issues with the Genius they didn't want to introduce a second 6 axis heli and cause even more head aches ....lol

I wonder why they don't improved V120D05 and put on market as Genius 120 CP belt drive? This motor is the same from M120,D05...

Funny as it doesn't state 3 or 6 axis gyro on the blurb, all the other WK FBL heli's do from what I've seen! Maybe its a 4.5 axis gyro

Ya, there's not likely a 6-axis mode. I was skimming the Walkera page from a lab computer and I think I read the "6 Channel" as "6 Axis". Good riddance, I say!

6 axis is a good idea its just they didn't perfect it before they rushed into production....perhaps this time next year we will be here saying "wow remember how crappy the 6 axis was on the Genius compared to this new Heli we just got"

blah....they just need to go ahead and incorporate a GPS tracking military grade system in them where all we do is flip a switch and the heli freezes no matter where its at and what position its in....lol

Has always been the Achilles heal - for ultra durable it need a clutch - have they put one in

I know its been said to death but, whilst I am glad there is a choice from WK I wish they would stop releasing new variants on stuff every 2 mins, you think you have your next heli figured out and they release a new one! First new TX which meant I had to hold off, then new small CP, they this! Goooooood god man, for the price I might be getting the NE 180 and have done with it
