Oh yeah on that note:
Cost was $55 for heli...
Was RTF with Flysky TH9X (which wow... Was a good radio.) so it pointed me to the 9XR.
Sold FlySky when 9XR came in. +$85
Cost now is NAGATIVE $30
Got TarotXYZ for $50 and FBL Head (no-Name) $20
Cost is now $40
Sold the Futaba Gyro - $30 and old head... $10
Cost is ZERO!
Sold the old motor 4000 kv (needed a gov.) $40
Bought replacement $15
Bought OrangeRX Full range Receiver $25
Cost is still ZERO!
Bought a Fuzno canopy $29
FINAL COST: $29!
Flies great too!
