I got it. It's cool, but takes almost 45-50 to charge for a 5-6 minute flight. Pretty ez to fly too, compared to the remote airplane I have.

How far can the thing go in 6 minutes? I know it has to come back due to distance of remote etc but what is its speed/distance/time etc, if you know?...sure somebody can remember enough maths to work out how far it would fly in 6 minutes total airtime.

Just curious, no real need to know.

Thats about the average unless you get a nitro powered one.

Battery powered, not many hit 10 min's unless you are very easy on the throttle or crash a lot and have to check it and set it back up to fly. Then its down time more than real flying time. lol

Adavatage to battery is they are quieter and no gas fumes .

All out forward, mine will do over 10 miles per hour for sure.

( get 6-7 mins solid fly time with mine) We'll use 6 mins and 10 MPH its easier to figure and a average time and a know speed. ( I've seen vidio's of my model looking like 30MPH speeds at least but I'm not good enought to go that fast and still have control yet.)

10 MPH devided by 60 min's = 1.6 miles a minute x 6 minutes = around
9.6 miles on average flight.

At the speed of 30MPH it would go 28.8 miles on a straight flight.

My next 4 channel (Fixed Pitch) helicopter. I have to save up. It's over $100.00, but kick @ss quality compared to the 9958 I had. Now that I know I can fly them its worth it.



After a year of flying the Super FP, I'll upgrade to 6 channel (Collective Pitch) with this one and learn to fly upside down and do aerobatics, air stunts and such.

This one is over $200.00.


They look alike because they are mainly the same bird just one is 4 channel and one is 6 channel.

Tammy suprised me with a gift seen as my 9958 went up up and away.
This is the Walkera Super FP.

Fast as all hell.

My Christmas presant from Tammy. A new Heli. As fast as the Super FP but smaller and better quality.


Here it is with some "snow skids" I made from a broken set of skids and blades from my old 9958.


Here is the final canopy moding I did. And painted silver skids.


Only 7.5 inches long and at full steam this little guy fly's at around 30+ mph. but you can tame it down to fly at a crawl for in the house.
