From what I have been reading, it looks like the MSR is way faster than the s107. And it has additional mods, like the custom radio etc.
My question is the price jump really worth it for a MSR? I recently purchased a Double Horse 9098 heli($28) and a Viefly v268($25). I like the metal body on the 9098, however after a few minor crashes it barely lifts off. But still fun. The v268 is a great lightweight heli.
So basically the next step is getting a little more advanced and finding a copter i can mod and replace parts easily. MSR looks great, however the price of the s107 is great too. Having the gyro seems to really help stability.
Any thoughts on a step-up upgrade and what have you all enjoyed? Thanks
As Profilefan mentioned, the MSR can get up and move. For a total beginner (To hobby quality RC helo's, not the toys) I think the MCX is the best bet. The MSR can be fun to hover around, too, but really needs some space when it gets moving.
I have an MSR and an MCX that I will let go at a good price, they would both be BNF though so you would need to provide a TX and batteries. Both helicopters have spare parts. PM me if you are interested.
