Default Need a New Heli - What's Next?

Had Helimax, the most basic one. Looking to a get a new Heli with CCPM.
What would be a nice next step?
I would like to budget $200 or so (Plus minus). RTF is the better but will consider ARF if must.

Appreciate your time!

Default next bird

Just got the Rotary Modeler today and read a great article on the TREX SA ARF, Not a bad deal, and for the next bird this could be you next heli. According to the author, the Trex SA is 199.99. However you may need to spend a bit more than 200.00. But I believe that this heli could take you to the next level of flight. According to the article, you can make this heli rock and or managable with the correct gearing. You could buy this one and add to it week to week. Good luck and I hope you find something you like.

Default I have a heli for sale you might want


I have a century hummingbird elite 3d pro. I bought two of them thinking that i would use the second for parts. This heli flys so good that I never needed the second heli. So im selling it. Im asking $65 for it, you just need to put you electronics in it. I can tell you what electronics im using if you need help. My first micro heli was ms composite hornet II. That thing didnt fly very well. Good luck on your search. If you need some help drop me an email. Here is a link to the site that it came from.

Could always go with an E-Flite Blade CP. CCPM and under $200. http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=EFLH1105

Or a Blade CP Pro for a little more. The only difference is a more advanced mixer. http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodId=EFLH1300

for the $20 difference, I would go with the Pro

Bell Hiller mixing with the Pro is what you want.
