Default First E-Heli= FUN!

Horizon had a deal on E-Flite Blade RTF MSR's, sooo.......i got one! In less than 2 days, ive ran at least 15 batteries thru this thing, and I CANNOT BELIEVE what ive put this poor heli thru, and its still together and flies just fine! I flew .30 sized Sport helis Years ago(Concept 30 DX, Nexus, Hirobo Shuttle DX) and i remember that if you just layed one over on its side, it could cost you a hundred bucks, not to mention set up time just to get 'em flying again! NEVER been cheaper to fly helis than now! Its a ball to fly, and just like the UMX planes, im pushing harder to improve my skills because im not so concerned with the cost to repair 'em if i break 'em!! GREAT FUN!

Yeah, they are great fun aren't they. I've been bitten big time by the heli bug.

Of course the big ones cost just as much to fix as they ever did, maybe more. But at least flybarless does make them easier to set up again if you do have to do a rebuild.

JPF, you are right on the money! Its like any type of "vehicle" you want to play with.....boats, cars, planes, helis, quads...... there are levels, and as the level goes up.....so does the COST!! I stay with the lowest priced stuff as possible, so i can try different stuff!rolleyes: What might you know about the Blade 120 SR? Seems like they are a popular Heli......!
