Still no decent-sized coaxial on the market.


I can't believe that we've been talking about this stuff for YEARS, and all that exists are coaxial toys that can possibly lift a cricket, and huge prototypes that cost twenty grand and are posted on German websites that are impossible to understand.

Geesh!

There is the Big Lama, which is bigger than the original Lama 3 and 4 by quite a bit. There is also the new Walkera Lama 400D, which is supposed to be a 400 size coax. It has twin 380 motors that run off of a 11.1V lipo. That's pretty big for a coax.

The 400D can lift a lot and can be modded very cheaply. I just wish someone would make decent aftermarket blades. The Walkera ones are stiff enough but break too easily. I'm in the process of making some CF blades, but personally I'd rather pay someone else.

If the 400D is the same size as the 53Q: http://www.rchelicoptershop.net/cata...x07-p-730.html

Actually, these appear to be about 50mm shorter.

Have tried the 3d Pro harden blades. Much the same as the Airys. They are 16mm shorter than the 400D blades and way too flexible. It does fly, but hover is about 2/3 stick rather than 1/2 stick for the 400D original blades and the blades flex up a scary amount.
