Piezo gyros do not function too well in cold weather?

I don't think Piezo Gyros function too well for more than a couple of weeks!!!

And now I've heard that perhaps the CLONE is getting CLONED. A supplier has indicated that there may soon be a "New V911" put together by a new manufacturer!

From the looks here, the pictures show better quality except one thing. The main blade grips do not have bearings, I think. I cannot figure out what they are saying. The feathering shaft is huge, or is small in the pic. They do a side by side but I am unsure which is which.

The quality on the circuit boards for the servo's is evident. The blade mcpx servo looks like a 5yr old soldered it.

It's nice to see other Chinese manufacturers are jumping on the sub micro model bandwagon.

The v911 copied the Rex 100 and solo pro and proved to be a real winner.

This can't be any worse than the dreadful Genius CP, and will hopefully give the mCPX owners some options of making a cheaper hybrid, perhaps.

Has anyone tried parts from it on the MCPX?

There's main shaft gears on ebay pretty cheap. Look the same, I guess I'll be a guinea pig if no one else was already

There are places in the world where Blade helis have very little or no penetration.

I highly doubt this is intended for the N. American market. The chances are that whoever sells it in N. America will get a lawyer's letter from HH in no time.

What is in for existing MCPx users is whether it is possible to get cheaper compatible parts such as servos.

It is US $188.00 in ebay.




I searched in google and found out one in a taobao agent as follow:

http://www.buychina.com/products/14733894116


It is US $168.06 with free shipping in buychina.com.



One in Taobao is a little cheaper than ebay's, and vendor's reputation is 4 diamond feedback scores.
