V202, which canopy do you prefer?

The ugly scorpion or traditional beetle. Sorry, right now those are the choices.

You already know what the beetle canopy looks like.

Scorpion:

Well... the scorpion looks odd without a stinger on the end of it's tail.

Do you know if it's Flysky compatible?

I also don't like the windshield, I don't know what the deal is with making these new canopies look like there are occupants inside (V949).

Sadly it's not FlySky compatible. I don't think future products are going to support this as it's going the way of the Do-Do

It looks like an optimized Version of the v939. I'm still waiting for spare PCB to buy.

FYI, we're getting both canopies, as I'm sure there will be peeps that like one over the other, just trying to find a good ratio (on our next Mini Pet shipment, we won't be ordering many red beetles )

The scorpion would be ok if it was solid black like the original. Perhaps some spraypaint would help? It looks heavier, however.

The mini-pet has a fine canopy. It's cuter and more orientation friendly looking than the ladybug ones.


I think domes generally look best myself, like on the RC Eye One or on the Gaui's.

I prefer the Mini Pet canopy over either of those choices. I have one on my x100 and for me, it looks great and is easy to see and discern orientation.

What does this v202 bring to the quadcopter party?

I'll see if we can get the yellow canopies for the V202. We can order more MP yellow spares, but they're more expensive than the WL Toys ones.

6 axis vs just 3 axis gyros is what the V202 brings to the table.

I'm still in hope, that the v202 will be Flysky compatible, even if it's said it isn't.
I would like read it from any review. But it doesn't seem there is any at this time.

I would like to get a v939+ pcb with acclerometer

I'd go with the scorpion only if you spray painted every one of them black.


This one has a nice canopy (again I would probably spray paint it).



Any chance you will carry it? Or could get those canopies (to fit the others)? It reminds me of this:

The v202 MUST be 9x compatible, if the following picture isn't a fake.

...or they just put the v202 in a v939 box only for product image.

If Aaron from banggood.com can help ????

If you zoom in the Transmitter, you can read v929/v939.
Or am I blind ?

Normally Banggood will pimp FlySky compatibility out:

"The V939 RC helicopter is also suitable for transmitter Turnigy 9X (FS-TH9X)and v929/v911 transmitter."

"The V911 RC helicopter is also suitable for transmitter Turnigy 9X(FS-TH9X)"

They aren't pimping this description in Bold red on the V202
