Walkera Super CP Mini Review Walkera Super CP Mini Review
By Jim T.
This is not just another mini 6ch 3D helicopter from Walkera. As you can see, most parts are identical to the Mini CP but the main difference is in the electronics. From the outside, all the parts are almost identical to the Mini CP. It has the same blades, rotor head, and main frame. The most visible difference is the smaller main motor and the 5-wire servos.
