Walkera Super CP RC 3D Helicopter BNF Review


All 6 channel micro helicopters require a conversion to brushless, in my opinion. If you convert the main motor to brushless and the tail motor to a 7 mm diameter motor, you will have a low maintenance helicopter. To do a brushless conversion on the main motor, you need a WK-WST-10A-LT, a C05M motor, a Genius CP main gear, and an 8 tooth pinion (if you don’t plan to do stunt flying, a 7 tooth pinion is better). Total cost with shipping is $45.80. Do not buy the official Walkera brushless kit. To convert to a 7 mm diameter motor on the tail, you need the motor, a tail fin, & tail motor holder. Crash survivability is good, better than any brand, but even then, you should avoid crashing any helicopter. You should reinforce the canopy with duct tape inside & out, forward of the front legs. A Walkera Genius CP requires reinforcement of the front legs of the landing skid, but in my opinion, you don’t need to reinforce the Super CP’s landing gear. You should strap down the battery connector to the battery cage with string to relieve the stress imposed on the solder points at the circuit board. After doing modifications and refinements, there’s still a problem that can be fixed only by Walkera: The heli hovers fine but when flying forward with zero rudder, the tail swings to the right, causing your path to curve left. This is less of a problem with the Super CP than with a Genius CP, which I also own. The Devo 7E has limited range. If you plan to buy a larger heli, you’ll want a Devo 6, 7, or higher. The advantage that the Devo 7E has over the Devo 7 is you can install the deviationtx firmware (Google it) on the Devo 7E, which allows you to control different brands of helis, such as the Blade MCPX brushless. If you have never flown a helicopter, I recommend buying a WL Toys V911 (4 channel) first (stay away from 2 or 3 channel helis). After around 2 weeks, you should switch to a 6 channel micro heli, such as a Walkera Super CP, before buying anything larger. A 6 channel heli is best able to fly on typical outdoor winds. I suggest limiting your flying on a 4 channel heli to 2 weeks because flying a 6 channel flybarless heli is a bit different; you don’t want to get too comfortable.
