Anyone seen the tail on this? Maybe that will cure tail blowouts if the software settings dont.

That's a good point. Even though I saw pics of Wow's drilled out air frames it still didn't register. I think I got it in my head I couldn't touch the air frame because there was about six weeks there where I had the mini but parts weren't available yet. I had servos from the genius so they were fair game.

No.

Only lightning bolts do!

It's Walkera! So, it's not legally allowed in most LHS's, and won't survive the inverted crash safety test without a Servo Saver mod!

I forgot which TX you said you have, but 2 people in the Devo 12 review thread recently claimed they've successfully programmed their TX's to activate TIMER from THROTTLE position stick movement, and one showed the screens to do it in:

Yes the throttle controlled timer does work on the Devo 12 and is easy to setup - I always presumed that this is a advanced feature used on the 12 only

Its got to be activated by going to the stick position icon, set switch to SPS0, set channel to throttle, set position ( I use L-92% ), set on to high

then go to timer icon and set switch to SPS0

then the timer should start as soon as you open throttle and then stop when you close it - you can also set a interval on timer so it buzzes after x mins or use the one time option that does not stop the timer when the throttle closes.

I had the devo 7 which probably doesnt have this feature. Anyone brave enough to update their Devo 7 software?

Decision bewteen Mini CP and Genius CP + brushless upgrade kit

Recently I bought a V120D02S and I'm very happy with it. Now I'm looking for something smaller for indoor use.

Because I own already a Devo transmitter, my two favourites are either the Mini CP or alternatively the Genius CP, upgraded with the official Walkera double brushless upgrade kit.

It's a close decision. Both choices cost nearly the same price and I guess, motor power of both might be comparable too. The only thing that could make a difference is the quality of their flybarless systems.

Please tell me your opinions and your recommendations about those two choices. Just to mention, I'm not fancy about this new telemetry gadget. I just like to have a nice indoor heli with quite good 3D capabilities.

Which one should I take?

Thank you very much for giving me some hints.

I have heard the double brushless kit for the genius isnt that good. I have the double brushless kit but I dont have a genius. I do have a mini cp and Love that little heli. Very durable. I have also tried the double brushless kit in the mini
Walkera Mini CP with Genius Double Brushless Upgrade (1 min 9 sec)


I installed it just to see if it works. I took it all off after that one flight.Its just too heavy and eats the battery up. I received the kit free with my order from helircstore.com Bob the owner is a very nice guy. I definitly recommend that you purchase your heli from him. He is located in north carolina too and orders usually take only 2 days!
Get the mini cp and buy a stock genius motor and genius main gear. Install them into the mini. Do the servo saver mod. Buy lots of batteries and enjoy 7 minutes of runtime. If you stay with the stock motor you will only get about 2 minutes. I have tried the c05 brushless motor in the mini and got lower runtime and speed over the stock genius brushed motor. Also the my mini's tail holds rock solid with no mix or trim at all. Genius owners have a hard time with their tails drifting. here is my mini with genius brushed motor

If i were artistic maybe but unless they come in a mini sticker....
Funny you mentioned the lightening bolts as that was my first choice. I needed something with wide lines as painting isnt my thing.

I woudnt recomend the genius to anyone over the miniCP. If you want longer flights get a genius motor.
