I have got now my new Walkera Mini CP and just looking at it makes me understand that it is a reliable heli. I flew it for the first time and I flew it many times after that only to find that it is extremely stable, with tail holding well in full pitch pumps. But the color of this 6-CH 3-axis gyro flybarless telemetry bird is dark, because of which it is less identifiable, especially in low light conditions. Flight time is also considerably less.

Main Features

Brushless motor, lightweight, strong, excellent outdoor flying providing awesome climb out.

Telemetry

I read in reviews that telemetry eats up battery time, which I found true in my case too. When it was enabled I got 3 ½ minutes of flight time, and when I stopped it I got only 1.25 minutes.

Flying Performance

As told before, Mini CP is super stable and reliable, with a smooth flight. It doesn’t suffer from CCW yaw or such problems. I got it crashed quite a few times, but so far it has no damage – not even to the main gear. Maybe because I take care of using 50% across pitch hold curve, which minimizes the harm during a crash, because blades and swash are at mid stick zero degree pitch.

Pros

  • Servos are very securely mounted very near to the main shaft
  • Canopy has to separate CF rods
  • Landing gear is not attached to the frame
  • Receiver is mounted vertically

Cons

  • Very short flight time even with the Hyperion 240mAh battery – not even full 2 minutes!
  • Canopy color is quite indiscernible being dark

Conclusion

Walkera Mini CP is good for beginners as well as experts with its stability and durability. However some drawbacks prevent us from calling an excellent heli, like shortened flight time and poor visibility.
