WLToys V912/NEX helicopter

Looks like they have a larger aircraft available!
I don't like the structure or the tail gearing though, looks too heavy and complicated. But I would really like to be proven wrong!
Here are some pics I found... what are your thoughts everyone?


Pricing is around 50 usd... apparently it runs on a 7.4v 850mah battery... and features a Walkera-like tx

Looks interesting, and $50 sounds pretty reasonable.

It almost looks like a clone of the Walkera CB180, but with a direct drive tail motor. For $50, it looks like my V939 and V911's will be getting a big brother soon.

That bears a strong resemblance to the infamous DH9116. That design is getting old. The CB180D is pretty weak, it's far better than this design, with respect to performance. The Hirobo SRB Quark is still the best handling FP ever made and they stopped making it two years ago. Why hasn't any of the toy companies copied that design?

Hirobo is alleged to have threatened to sue manufacturers who have copied their Lama co-axial design without permission. One of those threatened was reported to be Esky. It was suggested that this may have been one of the reasons why Esky went underground. This is possibly why toy companies do not want play around with Hirobo.

There are lots of CB180D clones on the market in China. They usually retail at around $80-100. As flawed as the CB180D design was, it shows that it will still sell provided the price is right. The $50 price tag by WL Toys is definitely a new level. It seems that they are completely determined to dominate the market.

Not really, F45 = 70cm / WL toys v912 (thats its new name) = 52cm

Looks more like a DH9116 (hopefully improved) clone

Banggood has already listed it : http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-La...f-p-54568.html

I agree, it looks just like a DH9116. And priced the same too. If it was $50 I would definately order one and check it out, at $70 I'm hesitant, I'd hate to end up with another 9116/clone for that price.

I also don't see any parts available for it.

Once I have my v911 mastered, I'll have to look into one of those! I assume it is more prone to destructive crashes, so I'll leave it alone for now.
