I got my solo pro 2 yesterday and i love it! Its so easy to fly and the perfect choice for a 4 channel for beginners like myself!
It virtualy hovers in the air without having to fight with it too much.
It has an indoor mode, and an outdoor mode. Good stuff!
I totaly recommend this helicopter for beginners, or even skilled pilots as i got my friend to check it out and he was impressed.
Ive heard alot of bad reviews on the blade msr which i was put off by and think i have made the right choice in purchasing this helicopter.
Maybe now i can get used to my honey bee v2!

Im loving the honey bee v2 my girlfriend got me for xmas. Forget your 3 channel helicopters, this means business. Well it did do until i crashed it lol.
I found that buying an aluminium blade holder did well as i snapped 3 plastic holders by landing side on. So i recommend this as a good mod, 12.99 from ebay. Heliguy do a lot of spares too for esky.
Ive jumped right in on this helicopter as i do have 6- 3 channel helicopters aswell and a small nine eagles solo pro 4 channel helicopter (2.4 ghz).
I still love the 3 channel ones, as it was my starting point.
I prefer the syma range, and find the s105g (27mhz), s107 (27mhz) both of which take 6 AA batteries in the controller, s006g (40mhz) are great starters.
The s006g was released this year and is a medium sized powerful helicopter, great for beginners like myself, it has the same mould control as the T-34 and takes 4 AA batteries. There is also a switch to change the speed too.
Another very stong helicopter is the T-34 series, its as large as a honey bee 2. Very powerful and it will even lift a DV camera no problem.
It comes with a control that has an lcd screen where you can turn lights on and off from this, visibly see the height gauge go up and direction of the helicopter on the screen and only 50. The control takes just 3 AA 1.5v batteries.
If you want something a bit more fun then the honey bee v2 is the helicopter for you. Practice makes perfect of course!
My nine eagles solo pro will do the job of that in the house.
Going back to the 3 channel helicopters, i found that the flymax ones are also good flyers too!
The helicopter i really want next is another small 4 channel called T-rex 100.
If anyone actually chats on this forum then drop me a post sometime, thanks!

hi people, im 27 years old and im new to the world of flying. Ive come to love it with a passion just in the last 3 months.
I started off with some small 3 channel helicopters, and also have a medium and large.
I didnt really understand about 4 channel and 6 channel until i spoke to a friend who was into flying, who suggested buying a honeybee 2.
Well last xmas the girlfriend brought me one and i have only just got it setup properly as it was not ready to fly as it said on the box. I broke it 3 time just by taking it up in the air a few feet lol.
At work there is a large space so ive been practicing hovering over one spot.
Im getting there slowly lol.
With practice im sure il be great one day.
Ive recently purchased a nine eagles solo too, so i can practice in the living room and wind the girlfriend up by flying into walls lol.
Practice makes perfect hey.
I would be interested if anyone wants to share what the best helicopters are to get, prices, maintainence etc.
