Payne, I never trust what the ads for these helis state for channels. Heck, they sometimes consider up-down-turn left-turn right as 4 channels! I had the chance to fly a $20 3 channel that was like this without the fans. It actually worked pretty well, but I still found it harder to fly than my MSR, as to avoid anything, you had to use the yaw to turn away from an obstacle, then push the 'cyclic' to move away. With a regular 4ch, you just move the cyclic where you want to go.

Still-cyco, if you're serious about getting into the hobby, or at least want a heli that you're not battling to control, one like Payne showed will be way more fun. It just takes a little time to learn the basics, but no more than the cheap mall heli's. Soon you'll be flying the tunnle between the coffee table and the couch, chasing the dog/cat, etc.

Things to check:
1. Pull off the connecting rods (the two pieces that connect the balance bar which is the topmost rotating thingy with the weights). If the balance bar falls off, then you need to replace the piece at the top.

2. Check the gears on the motor shafts. They are notorious for stripping. I doubt this would cause what you are experiencing, but you never know...

3. Even with cracked blades, it shouldn't fly off the the right as it is doing. It would simply vibrate insanely.

ok so......it only came with two bades spare.....one blade for the top, and one for the bottom, so i'v replaced the one with the biggest indent/crack/deep scratch on the upper blades....and it seems to have made a difference....

All right! Some progress! Hopefully it's good enough for now. Now for the next problem with the not-hobby-quality helis..... parts. Hopefully if this is indeed the fix, you can order replacement blades.

Well, it is late over there, so good night. And good luck. Hopefully you'll keep flying and stay with us. Your experience will help someone else one day.

Go with the Blade McX2 and when you feel real comfortable with it and if you really enjoy flying micro-helis, graduate to the MsrX.
