If all goes well and they send my heli out somewhere arround 15th, I'll be more than happy because $335 incl. DHL shipping is worth it for me.
x3. Ehirobo would be 426.63 shipped. So if they really do get them on the 15th and ship via DHL (2-3 days) I think I'll wait.

i just want the minicp with devo 7 not the devo 8. I dont want to sign up to ehirbo to find out shipping costs. I did email oomodel,ehirobo,and a few more to see if they actually are in stock. I would be saving money if I bought the combo from one of the above companies even if i needed to pay for shipping. I just wish these companies would be truthful when it comes to these matters.

Sorry to hear about you guys waiting, and I don't mean to rub it in but I got mine today. All in all I'm pretty happy with it. I see they used better wires for the battery leads that connects to the RX if compared with the Genius CP.

Frankly, it doesn't seem ANY smaller than the Genius CP. It's not more stable, either. The Genius CP is just as stable in 3 axis. I don't have a yaw issue on the Mini (Very, very mild if any), though, so that's a plus.

The motor is more powerful but the flight time is nearly half that of the stock Genius CP. Fair trade for 3D pilots, maybe. But for beginners, intermediate, and people who just like buzzing around and doing some sports flying, the VERY short flight times are a bummer.

The word from me is if you own a Genius CP already, just buy a handful of main frames/skids, and stick with that. If you don't have a Genius, then buy the Mini CP and put a BL motor on it.

I will take it outside for a maiden outdoor tomorrow. Maybe I'll have more to say about it then.

Best,
Chris

I'll weight it when I remove it. Heavy is the answer. It's heavy. In fact, I'm pretty sure it weighs the heli down to the left. I'm pretty certain the COG is off due to the weight of the stock motor.

Where did you get that price? It shows 389.99 on their site plus another 36.64 for shipping.

@itsmillertime - Yep, mine came to $359.70 shipped. That's the Mini CP with the new Devo 8S.

What's the battery of choice for the Mini CP? I have also have a Genius CP (2801 Pro) - so I'm hoping they can share (?)

How hard would it be to do the BL mod? Any chance that a retailer will sell RTF models with the BL mod applied? Given that the battery life is so dismal with the stock motor I suppose it would be a very popular mod.

Thanks for the info, would you happen to know if stock motor is carbon brushed or copper fingers? you can see the brushes if you shine a pen light into one of the holes on the side of the motor

@zoide Im sure there will be a brushless version sold eventually, but the modification is pretty easy to do yourself and cheaper that way.

oomodel responded and said they do have mini-cp's in stock. 48 dollars shipping though. Banggood had said they would offer to cancel my order and refund my money. I asked them how long it would take for my refund to go back into my paypal account about 7 hours ago with no response. Banggood had said they expect mini's on the 15 and also said no one else has them. I will pay 1 extra dollar to buy the mini-cp and devo 7 from oomodel today if banggood would put the paypal money in my account right now. frustrating as hell.

how about putting a genius motor on the mini for general sport flying, training, etc.. get more fly time and probably 3-4g weight savings.
