Just some quick notes from my CP 125 experiences so far. First and foremost is parts. I can't find any "heli-max" parts for this thing anywhere, so I decided to be the guinea pig and see if the Walkera 4g6 parts were actually the same. They are. So far I have replaced the stock plastic head with the red metal upgrade that is for the 4g6 and it fits great, and works flawlessly. I saw some other posts about them being sloppy or loose, but the one I got is superb. I have been crashing and destroying parts at a pretty epic pace, mostly due to how cheap it is to repair! I average about $5 to $10 for repairs at most. Heck the metal upgrade head was only $22 !! Every part has been replaced so far with 4g6 parts from http://www.wowhobbies.com. (they are awesome by the way! Super fast turn around & shipping for a great price!, I highly recommend them.) The tail on my 125 is about to be completely replaced with 4g6 parts due to some recent weird behavior that I can't quite figure out. I also bought 4 extra batteries for the 125 and am getting about 5 minutes of "flight" per battery. (What I do to this poor helicopter doesn't quite qualify as true flight! lol) So far I love this thing. lots of fun to fly in my office and in my living room. My biggest complaint is the how small the darn parts are! OMG, this thing is hard to work on! also, the radio is somewhat mysterious to me on how to change settings, but that may be mostly related to my fear of screwing it up and not being able to get it back working again...
All in all, i think this thing is a definite winner. As far as flying difficulty, It's not ideal for beginners because it is so fast. Everything happens really fast with this heli. but it's a lot of fun...

uuuggghh! I'm getting sucked backed in again...
