Why block out exactly what other model we are considering? I am holding out on an Mcpx or Ncpx myself waiting on this WL toys heli. It better make it before black Friday cause I have a feeling there will be some killer deals then.

Yup same here. I'm itching for a micro CP. Basically I'm waiting to find out if this one is 9x compatible. Otherwise I'm just going to do a DSM mod on my 9x and buy a nCPX

Got me a nCPX to hold me over.

I always have more most fun with the clones. Blade products generally have "issues" for me. With the clone, at least you expect it. LOL

If this could be flown with the DEVO 10S and deviation (http://www.deviationtx.com/) I'd consider picking it up just so that I could have an excuse to buy a DEVO 10S...

In all honesty, I'll probably be in the camp of folks that won't consider this if it's not compatible with FlySky.

Hey, no problem, I'll send you $100 and a smartie parts board for the mcpx and you'll be all set with enough cash for the new chopper.

Nice offer. But I bought to fly it
And it's no question of money, too.

I was sort of kidding, but now I see the smartie parts boards are out of production, he has a few left, I'm not selling mine. It's not really a matter of money for me either, it's a matter of too many helis already.

Well, it's a matter of money if were talking Align stuff or SAB stuff or similar. I can't justify that stuff even though I've spent that much and more, collectively.

Here is a discription of the Hisky FBL80.
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-p...632346060.html.

The Nano CPX has raised the bar. It says the HIsky FBL80 weighs 37g, this is to much. The board design and motor mount makes it look very hard to mount a brushless motor. The WLtoys micro FBL needs to have at least as good performance as the Nano CPX. It needs to be as light as the Nano. If WLtoys makes the frame easy to mount a brushless motor like the walkera micros then they will be ahead of the Nano in that way.

Btw, the FBL80 is not selling well in China due to its price. The folks are waiting for the WLtoys CP micro helicopters.

that is almost a 30% weight gain over the nano. Also you are right about that board placement..what a horrible idea. The Nano was good brushed but way better as brushless

At least this looks like a pretty unique design. I would have thought that the appearance would put many off. If the WL Toys CP retails for around $80 including transmitter, it does not have to match the nano in performance.

I just wished WLtoys would give us some more teaser photos or anything so we have an idea what we are waiting for.
