Mini cp or Nano cp ?

I'm tossing the idea of getting either a Nano Cp or a Walkera Mini cp ???
I already have a 120D02S , I'm pretty happy with but I`m not to sure about using it for indoor flying this winter and I just like to try stuff !!
I`m interested of hearing from people that have flown both to compare , flight caracteristics, durability, ease of repair ....
I do have a DX8 and a Devo7E so that`s not an issue ...

cheers

I can't give an unbiased opinion based on personal experience. I have not flown the Nano and I don't buy Walkera any more.

IMO the Nano is the best CP for indoor flying. Smaller than the Mini CP, a lot lighter, less intimidating and very durable.

Since you have DX8/Devo7e both would work fine. BNF Mini c/p would be bigger and cheaper but its a close call. Blade stuff you can get parts easier. Then again you have a good Walkrea bird already. Try the Blade .

I would get the Nano if you want to fly 3D indoors.

How is the DX4e to set? Is it programmable?

I'm confused. I had always thought that any CP heli required 6 channels to operate. Looking further into this, I see that the DX4e is a 4 channel TX. How does the pitch/throttle control work?

The receiver of the Nano CP has actually got normal and stunt mode curves built in that can be selected by a switch on the DX4e, These curves are set on the aggressive side for 3D flying. Therefore it is recommended that you get a programmable transmitter unless you are already quite experienced.
