Naturally a 45 flybar is easier than flybarless. But its mechanical auto stabilization system is very annoying (as hanged from ceiling) and boring to fly. Im flying a Walkera V120D01 and since then I had to sell my two CB100 because I never used them anymore. I dont have any quadcopter yet, but I expect more than from a 45 flybar heli. Perhaps a flybarless is better for me than a quadcopter.

If we are speaking specifically about a recommendation for you, don't sell quad performance short. A good quad will out-perform any FP heli, flybar or not. Granted these models are more "toylike" in performance, but they aren't bad, either.

The Ladybird V2 Devo 4 is now $57,90 (Banggood) free shipping. Few days ago it was $62,90. A good price despite its toy-grade radio.

Well I just ordered a Mini Pet from banggood. They had it on special today for $37. Hope to fly it inside and will compare it to my mQX. I already have a 929 in the box and plan to order a 939 when it comes out.

Don't forget some batteries. Cheapest batteries for all of these they have on Banggood are listed as for the Mini-Pet at 300mAh 15C @ $2.79 for 1 and $2.53 each for 3. It seems to be the standard size and have the Walkera LB connectors.

Edit: Oops, they are now out of stock since yesterday.

X-Heli has the Ladybird on sale for $132. Regular price is $129. Doesn't seem like a bargain to me.

Did you click the link to go to the detail page? It says you save "-2%". That is funny.

It was $119 for the longest time. Don't know what they were thinking here.

Edit: Back to $119 now

I thought it would work with my solo pro 100 batts. I have a couple nano tech 300's with what appears to be the same connector.

The Ladybird doesn't work with the Solo Pro 100 batteries. The wires are connected differently. If you try connecting it, you will end up frying the circuit board.

small size, cheap quad, mode 1 TX

[mode rant on]

I ordered the HuanQi 881 last week and received it yesterday (I'm currently in China). When I ordered it I asked several times to be sure it was a mode 1 TX (30 years flying in this mode, it is difficult to change...).
I open the box, there are :
- the TX (in mode 2),
- a set of 4 spare blades,
- 2 LiPo 1s,250mAh,
- 6 AA bat.,
- a USB charger for the LiPo (they can be charged on the TX too, like the solo pro),
- a screw driver.

I quickly read the "user guide" and discover the TX can only be in mode 2 or mode 4 (throttle on the left stick only).

Asked the customer service, they said you asked a mode 1 TX and you have a mode 1 according to HuanQi norm (a mode 4 TX for anyone else) so you have to pay for the return cost.

I'll tell you how this will end...

[more rant off]

I'm afraid it'll be the same for the Pet as they seem very similar with the same mode 1 / mode 2 fake??? switch...
someone can check when received?

So I always want a small size, cheap quad, with a mode 1 TX, the only ones are the MJX X100 and the Nine Eagles Alien (NE parts are already listed on their website). Anyone has information about when they will be available?

I only found this page on their website to show there are four modes available, if you have time could you please explain in a few words how it is performed? The two external trims?
Thanks in advance

Welcome to Planet 地球
If the factory that makes it does not have an English manual, it's not a safe bet that anyone else does either.
You can always translate manually, paragraph or page by page, assuming that they actually have any manual at all. Takes a while, but c'est la vie. I had to do that with the technical manual for a $2000 infra red rework station, not a $40 toy.
