At this size and weight, this heli is almost indestructible with a few mattresses below. Damn, did walkera copy this design or what? If they really designed this from scratch, they really deserve some rep.

The idea is the same as for a Micron v2 (let's hope the price tag will be a walkera one)
The design is basically a 5#6 (or rather a 5G6 here) with a single rotor and AC tail motor

Looking forward to a resseller too..

PS: thanks for the topic sketch ^^

Side note "Let's learn how to google":
Google is your friend yes, but how to find suh weird things as "4#3" that could also be "4-3" or even "4/3" "4-3"... and thus, without finding things that you do not care about (eg: "chapter 4-3" of a thesis)
The answer is "proximity search"
eg: type
Code:
"dragonfly 4 3"~10
in google this will search all pages containing 'dragonfly' AND '4' AND '3' within 10 words of each ohers
Quite useful eh?

The only fp heli being close to this size is the micron which is $300 and is almost impossible to not fly into walls without a ton of tweaking....what is the price and where can I buy one ???

Very nice. I've been wanting another FP heli and this one looks to fit the bill, plus I love the super small stuff...
