I just discovered that post! As BG translated to English wrongly, that thread contained a few mistakes. It's easier for me to put the correct information here.

Looks nice!
V926 seems an extended tail boom version of the V925.

@ FyreSG your pics for the V926 X1 & X2 are reversed, blue one is the X1.

Not really - V926 is brushless while V925 is brushed. The description on 3D aerobatics specifically mentioned "tick tocks" for the brushless V926.

Thanks! I've corrected the wrong photos.

Nice that the V926 is brushless! I'm surprised it's not more expensive than the V925.
Still it seems extended, just look at the pics and the position of the same length main rotor blades. And your stats do indicate a 25mm larger body length, while all other sizes remain the same.

Yes, V926 is extended. I had meant "not just..." instead of "not really".

I have asked a series of questions and this is one of them. Let's hope BG is able to get the answers from WLtoys soon.

These look suspiciously similar to the Solo Pro 125/126 and their cousins the HeliMax 100FP/CP/SS....

This is likely to be their pedigree. A large proportion of Walkera's design team was poached by a large toy company and the San Huan 6050 is one of their designs. It looks like that WL Toys has commissioned that company to make the heli but using its transmitter. The Solo Pro 125A itself is a clone of the Genius CP. If you look at that, the 3D performance exceeds that of the V922 with stock transmitter. The V922 can compete with Walkera effectively on its own, but I imagine that WL Toys now wants to finish off Walkera completely in the micro CP market. If there are a lot of compatible spare parts with Walkera, then it would hit Walkera even harder.

SH 6050 3D 2.4GHz 6 Channel Remote Control RC Helicopter Mode 2 RTF (1 min 40 sec)


Correction: they are likely to be designed by ex-engineers from Nine Eagles as reported from another thread.

WLtoys have renamed "V" to "WL"


BG confirmed with WLtoys that the heli is named WL925 and WL926 instead of V925 and V926. "V" stood for "volitation".

Going to be intertesting to see how market is another year. Looks like WL toys decalred War on Walkera. I like Genius c/p but new ones are way over priced.
They changed board on Mini c/p and I don't like Super c/p. I don't know who runs the show at Walkera but they should be replaced ASAP.
