I will defiantly give you a full and honest description and performance report when I fly this, but what I can tell you honestly so far without flying it,
The Helicopter looks as good close up as it does in the photo.
No binding in any of the ball linkages they all fit snug.
No screw feel loose as I have checked them in preparation for flight.
The carbon fibre blades look impressive and are assemble beautifully on the full metal CCPM rotor head from what I can see without flying this look rock solid.
As soon as I get my transmitter back I will fly the Storm 450, to see if it does fly straight out of the box, and looking at the way it has been built I believe it will.

Anti-Interference & Higher Reliability
Operating at 2.4 GHz puts the radio control out of the frequency range of any 'noise' generated by the other electronic components on your helicopter - such as the brushless motor, Electronic speed controller, Gyro, Servos and any metal to metal noise - eliminating interference and glitching that can affect traditional frequency system.
Longer Transmission Distance (>2km) & Lower Power Consumption
DSSS (Coding technology) offers longer transmission distance and minimizes power consumption. Also, no jamming with others in the field.
Faster Response Time
2.4 Ghz systems offers quicker, more responsive control, when compared to a standard frequency system.
No Frequency Control Required
A main characteristic of 2.4 Ghz equipment from a RC model club’s point of view is that no frequency control is needed. Eliminating the need to check everyone else's channel numbers, prior to flying. No more worries about turning up at a club with the wrong crystal in your Tx.
