Who makes them?

Just curious.......but who actually makes the transmitters for the Blade CP Pro? Is it some big company, or is it made by E-Flite? I'd really like to know.

Generic, as far as I can tell. It's the same transmitter used in a large assortment of micro helicopters and even planes from different companies in China, only thing that seems to change is the name.

As for the real manufacturer, hard to say. It's been my experience that most of these overseas companies go through a lot of trouble to make them selves as nondescript as possible, probably to help protect their clients in places like the USA.

As far as I know, Esky makes them and EFlite distributes them under their brand. I could be mistaken though.

Most of them are made by the same manufacturer in China. The "brand" (e.g. E-Flite) may have licence to their own moldings for the transmitter casings etc. in order to make them look different from the others.

The "brand" will also have there own Quality Control requirements. So that any finished product that do not test to these standards is usually not dumped into the garbage bin, but rather will be sold "back-door" to an obscure Chinese brand that can sell them over the net at little financial/warranty risk to themselves.

Some also have software specific circuits that are different re: the gyro and mixes programmed into them, but they will still be coming off the same manufacturers assembly line.
