Are Blitz RC helis made by Walkera?

I am looking at some Blitz Rc helis from Banana Hobby and they look exactly like Walkera, radio and all. Are they compatible with Walkera parts? made by Walkera for Blitz RC? I ask because they are cheaper for one, and actually in stock. This one's on sale right now for $130.

I see several other Blitz RC helis that look just like Walkera models. I don't think Blitz RC makes anything, maybe it's just a house brand for Banana Hobby?

Yes...they are re-badged walkeras. Parts are 100% interchangeable.

You need to be very, very careful when buying any rebranded Walkera helis. They are usually versions of unpopular models, not Walkera's better selling models. In the case of the model you linked, it has a tail drive motor mounted in the heli. It was used in the CB180B and Q models when they first came out but was replaced in the CB180Z, because it was very inefficient, overheated and used too many amps. Walkera is very good at mixing unpopular components with new components in an attempt to unload inventory. They don't usually fool anyone who knows what's going on.

However, the Heli-Max Novus 125 series are re-branded walkera's, and my little FP125 is a wonderful bird. Beyond my novice piloting skills, hard to learn hovering with; but a BLAST at forward flight and zipping around the basement!
