The good, the bad and the ugly?

Good find, DD! Strange that Horizon UK has it on their website before Horizon USA.

Been listening to all of the pros and cons expressed on this new heli. This is exactly the size I have been waiting for. Love the size of my SR 120, or is that the 120 SR?, but it is a pain to fly in any wind in comparison to my mCP-x.

Yes, I preordered the first day Horizon posted it on their website.

At 4 ounces all up weight, I am guessing it should have crash survivablity roughly on par with the 120, excepting the tail rotor mechanics. Whoops, forgot about the higher headspeed, so perhaps not! This could be the "bad."

All of the time I have spent on the mCP-x should pay its dues!

I am also not excited about its boom and pod looks. Ugly to me. Hopefully, someone will market some decent weight scale body alternatives. This bird should have the room to carry a few extra grams, especially if you are not into 3D flying.
