There was a 100 sized CP as well. It looks like a complete Mini CP clone. It seems Walkera is opening its doors to other manufacturers,

It seems that we will soon get to a situation where every new Walkera heli or quad is followed by a bunch of clones or rebrands within a few months.

I would recommend that you look at the transmitter issue carefully. Out of the list, I would personally go for the Mini CP with Devo 8S or Devo 10. since those transmitters can be used in larger helis of other brands. There is also a third party firmware which allows the the Devo 8S to control DSM2, Nine Eagles J6, and Turnigy 9 as well. However, there is no version for Devo 10 yet.

Yes, that's also a consideration factor. And I had forgotten to add the unreleased WLtoys 6 channel CP FBL helicopter to my list. Heh.

The product is coming out soon. It does look more like a clone rather than a rebrand at this stage. What I heard from my vendor is that the V120D02S is the only heli that is made completely entirely by Walkera in-house. Parts of other products are subcontracted to other manufacturers so that the molds used become available one way or another. This is similar to what HobbyEurope said about the HiSky FBL100 and the mCPX.

Length: 225mm
Height: 75mm
Main rotor diameter: 240mm
tail rotor diameter: 36mm

I can understand the plastic parts were cloned, but what about the board? Is the board the same?

"6 --- aileron/elevator sensitivity adjusting knob: adjust aileron/elevator gyro sensitivity, change flight effect"

Is this feature found on the Mini CP?

The board is very different. What I don't understand is why there are 5 wires instead of 3 doing to the servos. There is an equivalent ail/elev sensitivity knob on the Mini CP board. It seems that they have put everything at the front of the board that could make it quite susceptible to crash damage.

Hardware is very easy to clone but software is much more difficult, especially since FBL software can be quite complicated.

Only going from memory the board looks quite different.

While I loved my minicp's I think they are old news compared to my nanos. I will wait to see what Walkera comes out with next...bet itll be good

It basically means it has dumb servos

I think you are right, the super FP have servos like these as well. The servo driver resides on the all-in-one board to save weight. This suggests that Walkera may be developing a Nano sized CP as well.
