Pictures aren't very good. It looks like a Walkera 53Q model. If the shiny red part that connects the lower bladeholders to the shaft is really plastic, it's definitely Walkera.

All red parts seems to be alu/metal I gonna check. All the ways, I think you are right some walkera spare parts looks like mine, but for moment I can't find on the net opened 53QD / 53#8 pics. Thx Balr14 !!

And if there is still a 53QD / 53#8 owner can you post a pic of your opened ?

The parts seem to be aluminum, some aren't. You can use that part of the heli on any Walkera model of the same size. They are all very hard to find, though.

Oky ^^

After new searches, there is something strange with mine and 53# serie : the swash guide position, doesn't match pics I saw. Nor the round part near servos.

There's a possibility that's a Twister model. The best way to tell is check the lower blade connector that looks like metal. If it's plastic, it's Walkera. They are the only company who tries to disguise it. In any case, you don't have a 4 in 1. Theoretically, you could build a Frankenheli.

And the "lower blade connector holder" is plastic as you said.

That's much better. Now I can see the servos. That's an old Walkera model, maybe 5 years. You should be able to use the 4 in 1 from just about any CX2 size coax. Cobble together a Star Trek shuttle craft.

Hey Balr14, people found that was a DF 5#8 And the diagram of 5#8 corresponds. Just some red parts must came from mod or special edition.
