Esky Lama V4 vs. Big Lama

Please tell me what is the difference with these helicopters other than the V4 is cheaper. Parts look the same for the most part and are both 2.4 ghz??? The BOL I just bought has been a lemon.

the big lama is well, a lot bigger. that's the biggest difference. and i believe it runs on a 3s lipo. while the v4 runs on a 2s.

It will take more Kingsford to rid oneself of the larger model.

Seriously, from what I barely read or recall, the smaller version is better.
Not by a lot, but more worth pursuing into something capable of repeated flights.
Most talk of the "BOL" ends up looking like talk about the Volitation/33Cm CopterGiest Series. Dismissal from service, dishonorable discharge papers in hand.

Got a coaxial helicopter you can't adjust the trim on? Read this.

I have both the V3/V4 sized bird and the larger Big Lama......The V3 and V4 size birds have 2 180 brushed motors and like already mentioned, they fly on 2S and the Big Lama has a couple of 370 size motors and flys on 11.1V 3S. The big Lama in my opinion flys better and smoother than the little ones as it's greater size yields very smooth flying characteristics as greater size typically displays compared to their smaller counterparts. This is the same with fixed wing models; I much prefer the flight and handling characteristics of larger models as sompared to very small models.
