Walkera QR Ladybird V2 (RTF) - All-in-one set for quad flying
 

 

In use

When powering up the Ladybird, the user can select between the normal and acro flight modes. No, this is not the same thing as what one can select with the D/R button on the radio! The normal mode limits the angles that the Ladybird is allowed to go before the movement is stopped. In acromode these limits are removed thus allowing the flips and other more advanced maneuvers. Great feature that you should learn to utilize.

I've been flying quads for one summer now. My 550 mm model with 10" props is quite a bit larger than the Ladybird and it was bit challenging to move from something large and slow to a small and very agile.

Here is a video that we shot during my practice sessions. Starting from the first flight and ending to my latest one.


I'm confident that most people will learn how to hover the Ladybird quite easily and even get it to do simple maneuvers. Flips and more acrobatic stuff requires more practice but that is to be expected. As I pointed out earlier, the size and the weight of the Ladybird makes it the perfect platform to try and learn these more advanced things without too much worry on breaking the quad.

Conclusion


PROS 
  • Small
  • Light weight
  • Very durable
  • 2.4 GHz
  • Price
  • Unlimited fun!

    CONS 
  • Stiff sticks on the radio
  • Only one flight battery included
  • Award
    Gold Award!


    As a RTF package the selection of the award was difficult. I personally feel that the radio is too much of a compromise but then again I want to fly other models too, thus I need more advanced radio. You can get away with the bundled DEVO 4 but you should think ahead and try to see if RC flying is something you would like to do more in the future. As a toy this package is an absolute joy but the Ladybird itself has potential for so much more.
