We charged this thing up at the hobby shop and I took off, flipped in to idle up and yanked back on the stick going for a flip. The motor bogged the tail blew out and it crashed hard breaking a link. I put a new link on and tried two more times before giving up and taking it home.
I now have over 100 minutes of flight time and well over 100 crashes. My tail fin is nowhere to be found but I am loving this heli. Its not perfect but damn is it close.
I have broken two links, lost one bearing and pushed the main gear back on so many times I lost count. In over 100 crashes I have spent less than $20. I fly it like I do the sim, just doing anything I want. Get into trouble, just hit throttle hold and let it bounce off the grass. Worst case is usually a popped off link or having to push the main gear back on.
So far this is one of the best tools to advancing my 3d skillz (or lack thereof) for the money. Similar to the sim you can try new things with little to no worry about crash costs. It needs a little TLC from time to time but what heli doesnt. I am trying new things I can do perfectly on the sim but am still hesitant to try in real life out. I will be trying these things on my bigger birds real soon.
~Integrated flybarless unit increases stability, control and power, providing the ultimate ultra-micro heli experience for both indoor and out door use.
~Overall strength due to strong lightweight design of the rotor head, use of carbon shafts and plastic components.
~Capable of an array of manoeuvres such as inverted hover, loops, flips,rolls, funnels and hurricanes
~The lightest heli in its class. Very low discloading results in high manoeuvrability and good collective response.
~An optional set of fast-flight blades are included; specially weighted they are designed for faster and smoother forward flight
~Robust, long-lasting dual ballrace supported linear cyclic servos maintain servo-to-swash precision throughout the increased lifetime
~Two performance flight batteries included
