If the WL quad is a Ladybird clone, will the transmitter that WL provides also work with the Walkera quad?

Just a note - got my new mQX and Balr14 is absolutely right I'm in love with it. The Ladybird is very good but the mQX is *excellent*. So much fun.

This is the only picture I've seen so far... and I also saw a very short video...
it didn't demonstrate whether the WL Ladybird is as great of a flyer as the Walkera one..so I guess time will tell

Known Information:
-There are 2 versions (MQx and Ladybird sized I think)
-The large one can flip (unconfirmed)
-The large uses a 500 mah battery while the small uses a 300 mah battery
-Pricing: RTF is around 255 rmb (40usd) and BNF around 198rmb (31usd)...I don't know if this is the price for the large or the small..I'm guessing the large
-The tx is the same as the V911 TX

I found a video!
WL Ladybird


what do you guys think??? I see a lawsuit and I'm not very confident that it'll fly as well as the Walkera...but WLToys has surprised us in the past...we'll see!!
This is very exciting, I can't wait, I've been wanting a quad for awhile & if it's made by WL I'm sure it will be as awesome as my v911's!

No neither the Walkera will work with the WL or vice versa. The design is a clone, not signals.

It might be possible if someone hacks a Devo module for the 9x Tx.

Only this guy is selling it at the moment.

The ladybird canopies are painted with a sad face. Why?

Lady bugs (the insect) do have kind of a sad face.... of course that's open to interpretation, but I can see where they get it.

I started a new thread about this in the multi-rotor forum yesterday and there is absolutely no interest there. It is already on page 5 of that forum. It seems that forum is now dominated by the $1300 DJI Systems WooKong M. Not only that, it is much more active over there than the Micro heli forum. I am amazed how many people are willing to spend that sort of money on multirotors. Some systems go over $10000 when FPV is installed.

Man sure hope this is for real. I broke down and just bought a V911.

I don't think the QR Ladybird canopy was worth cloning in the first place. It could be that it is the MQX which is really being cloned and the QR Ladybird canopy is just a diversion.
