Bath CP2 and 22E are 2.4 Ghz reincarnations of well tried and tested heli's - both can be flown quite agerssively - main chritism is that with motorised tail's they are difficult to convert to brushless.

The new 1#B is a new design where walkera have taken note of the problems of earlier models - instead of both main and tail ESC being inside the reciever they have used an external dual brushed main tail ESC for brushed model (blue) and a external brushless motor and tail ESC for brushless upgrade (Red) they have also a nice CNC head upgrade.

But the main differance is the 2.4 Ghz system is far more adjustable with servo throw adjustment on the reciever combined with the much improved servo expo function on the 2.4 Ghz transmitter - giving you the ability to tune the heli for beginner to advanced pilot.

Also the manuals have been much improved giving much better setup details for pitch, expo gyro settings - also full measurement and optimum settings so that after a bump the manual will give good guidance on how to re-setup the helicopter.

Walkera have been listening very carefully to you coments and chritisms and its really starting to show in their new products

In my opinion the 1B is the best option (others may differ) I believe Terence is doing a good deal on the 1B at present http://www.chinesejade.com/walkera1_B_Heli.htm
