Does it run on Vbar programming or kbar programming ?? We know mikado wont update them ?? So it's just a kbar any body with e engineering n programming can lay out a board with same components but programming is propriety and with the way mikado update their algorithms It's gonna be nearly impossible to have a copy or the newest IMHO so yea same components but programming it what seperates the clone vs oem so spend the $ where u want to but remember when ****e hits the rotor disk mikado won't send u up ****e creek without a paddle as for k Barr sounds like they left out a couple letters before the f--k n they will probally leave u k barred up the creek imho

Unfortunately that unit runs on Genuine Mikado software.....it is stolen as well.
Now you know why the registration and software/upgrade process was changed.

no matter what, that unit and software will never work as well as a mikado Vbar. if anyone is stupid enough to buy one, they'll just spend more money repairing their helicopter.

And that folks is why they sell them. People complained that the VBAR was "expensive" at $399 so Mikado made a mini VBAR and sold it for $200 and now that is expensive. Cloners make money because some people just don't care about innovation....probably because they have never had anything stolen from them......Ron

Those that buy stolen property are as bad or worse than the crooks that sell it.

People like that keep the scum of the earth alive and well...disgusting!

Problem here is keep following the road of SUPPORTING knock off brands and we will end up with NO choice and NO innovation.
See the rise of Hobby King
and the fall of how many hobby shops? ReadyHeli, HP South, the list goes on. Its not about American or china mdes its about supporting products you like the only way you can

With your WALLET.
