I don't fly near people, but over at where I live, people are everywhere. Unless I venture out... Slow boat definitely applies for me. BG stuff takes an average of 2 weeks to reach via China Post; 1.5 weeks via HK Post. Even though I'm just a 3-hour flight away from Guangdong.

Wow I figured it would take less time, but still, 2 weeks isn't that bad. I'm used to 3 weeks.

IMHO some of these clones are actually nice
personally I like the prop guards (to save my TV screen) and I like the motor cases of the big pet did you see if they already sell spare parts of these birds?

Well, to be honest I was searching on google for some info on the Vitality H36 quad and reached this page

http://www.toy63.com/cp/class/?145.html

looks like it is some chinese toy factory web page in chinglish but I didn´t see any spare parts in there.

I also like those motor cases, at least they are a bit diferent than the classic mqx/v929 design.

Thanks for the link...

the UFO canopy for the 929/mQX is also nice ( http://www.toy63.com/cp/html/?4824.html )
let's wait and see if BG is getting the spare parts

Mini pet's Big brother or should we call it the Big Pet?

Enjoy
I have to admit pretty much all of the other ones made me laugh. . However the "big mini pet" has a really nice look to it. Live the motor mounts and booms. Have to admit this one gives the blade mqx a run for its money in the looks department and wins hands down in my book. Hmm I wonder if a spektrum board will mount underneath the canopy ? I like it!!!

In my opinion, the weak spot of the V929 (I don't have a V939... Yet) is the thin and fragile 3mm boom. For now, after a lot of crashes, I had to replace only booms.
If it has 6mm booms like the Mini Pet - it will be much more durable (even though it is not Carbon).

I have already suggested it - but, if WL Toys listen, I think it will be much more durable and more stable with 6mm Carbon booms. The 3mm booms tend to crack and brake easily and loose their stifness - 6mm booms will reduce this problem dramatically.
And it will not weight much more, and it will be possible to pass the wires through them without soldering (only releasing the pins of one connector).

This Mod will require only some minimal change to other parts besides the booms.

I replaced mine with massive carbon and put a drinking plastic straw around for protection. 3mm just fine

That UFO was not there yesterday when I saw that page!!!

Yesterday there were 19 items, today there are 20.

How about a mix of that big Mini Pet with the V929 landing gear?
