Having said all that if you flown helicopter at all You will have zero trouble with the Mini pet or the 202. I have fun With both and do not regret their purchases at all. Massive Overkill And James have provided great advice and an excellent set of products/accessories.

Thanks Ben, it's not just yours, every single one we've sent out required alot of backwards trim. It's as if the V202 needs to be moving in order to get its bearings, which could be why it's so stable in extreme conditions and fast flight.

Copyright costs to use the protocol most likely.

It is extremely durable, I've taught a few complete beginners to fly with it already...but under expert mode, It can fly at the edge of my comfort/skill level.

And I have to mention the unparalleled customer service standards I've experienced first hand from RCLogger... it is the standard I want our company to meet one day.

Here's a shameless plug of the review I wrote of this quad. It is number one on my list of favorites and I think it'll stay there for quite a bit of time to come.

Thank you. I have the MJX x100 (aka Mini Pet) and I thoroughly enjoy flying it, especially as it's all indoors for me at this time of year.

My current quads, in order of preference, are RC Eye One, MJX x100, WL-v929 and MJX-x200. I also have a number of fixed pitch helis ranging from v911 to MJX F45 but I find them mostly occupying shelf space at this time.

I am trying to determine if the v202, or any other new release, would be a worthwhile addition to my quad fleet - a surprisingly difficult decision. It seems different quads appeal to different people, due to varying flying styles and preferences.

Some value hands off hover. Some want easy flips, some want easy to fly and some want speed, some even expect the ease of their 3ch coaxial . . .

I value responsive yet predictable and controllable for indoors, and speed when I have the space (and weather).

regards . . . g

LB QR V1 delivers a lot of these values, especially when used with a Devo 7E.

And some wind makes the flying even more fun.

I think you are worth a Lady Bird and a good transmitter (Devo 7E).

Agreed I now have no reason to look at the V202.
That stinks! I was interested in the V922

I have never tried a Walkera product - when can you send me one?

My RC Eye One also has the range I like, from sleepy 'beginner' rates, to fun 'sport' mode, to 'I am too scared to try it indoors in Expert' mode.

Anybody know anymore about the Redcon HiBird Mini quad that just popped up on BangGood? Supposely DSM2 compatible and thus sold as a BnF.

Found a video on YouTube:

The new V959 Transmitter works with V939

I just received the V959 for review. As it is already 9pm, I couldn't do much except to try flying it around. I also tried binding it to the V939 and it works! Looks like they didn't change the protocol (yet).
