My #1 son has just bought a Blade CP Pro and mcx for his birthday, Lee. He wanted something he could get parts for at the LHS as well as help when needed. I guess you guys have a decent guy who knows heli's, but they don't want to help much if you don't buy it there. He also wants to try the club that Rick belongs to that flies in Dunwoody. They set aside a day a month to work with newbies.
Now that he's got 2 new heli's, he's sending me his Walkera Lama2 that he has had a lot of problems with.
Glad to hear you're healthy again.
