All Helimax models are rebrands. It used to be Walkera, now it's the same as NE. They haven't made a decent heli since the Axe 400. .

The Solo Pro 100 has linear servos whereas the 125 has rotary servos.

Mine arrived in the mail today. Flew 8 times this afternoon.
Performance was better than expected. Very stable and enough power for loops and rolls. Its pretty quick. Better than I remember my old v1 mcpx.
Tail holds very well. No blow outs when doing quick loops back to back or quick climb outs.
It does require good collective management. But I could definately get better in that catagory. And I hope flying this will help me improve.
There are some reports that the brushed motor will gain performance after it's broken in. Takes about 20 flights. Even then I don't see tick tocks in this birds future without a brush less upgrade.
I have to say I'm really happy with my purchase. Stable no tail blow outs. Quick and fun to fly. Best of all I can use my Futaba 8fg radio with the any link module.

Its pretty durable. One broken boom and I've crashed it a bunch. Not bad. Its sturdier than the v1 mcpx I had.
I'm not sure about nine eagles version being anylink compatible.

I don't have a Spektrum radio anymore so I can't compare it to any Blade products other than the v1 mCPX I had.

not just earlier versions...all versions are rebrands under the helimax brand.

Hobbico is just a NA distributor for nine eagles.
