Discovered new walkera 5G6

Looking at one og the forums I discovered Walkera had made a new version of the walkrea 5#6 called 5G6 smiley It seems to basicaly the same heicopter with a few design changes. Link to 5G6 on the walkera homepage:
It seems to weight 57g whereas the 5#6 only weights 55g. This probably isn’t too bad but 2g is after all almost 4% weight increase.

PicooZ declared dead

Yesterday I tried out some glue for the picooZ and I found out it dissolved foam, so I have decided not to use that smiley After I found out I put it back together with rubber bands. The picooZ did however keep spinning so I don’t think replacing the main rotor did help smiley Something else must be the problem. I don’t want to spend more money and effort in getting it flying again. It’s not that fun flying compared to the Lama after all.
The best thing is the small size that means it won’t break things easily when you crash. If I want a small heli again I’ll get a Walkera 5#6 or similar. These small helis seem more gf friendly smiley

First picooZ post

So I have to admit I do have a PicooZ and I have had it for some time. I got it for my birthday in March and it is the reason I bought my Lama. Currently it is broken and I am trying to replace the main rotor smiley I have replaced the rotor and it seems to be working smiley, but I havn’t glued it back together yet. I am worried the glue will dissolve the foam so I need to do some glue experiments before I apply it on my picooZ.
