Trust me when I say all rc heli's are money pits, quads are less so, but still require the replacement of parts, but less often. The more expensive the heli is, the more expensive the parts are, and usually more complicated to repair and setup.
Thankfully, the DH9116 is cheap and so are the parts and it's relatively easy to set it up and get it flying again, with little or no previous experience, and it's big enough that us older folk can see and handle the parts without the need of coke bottle bottom lenses is our glasses.
As I written many times before, the DH9116 teaches you the basics of flying, repairing and the correct terminology for those parts, so others can understand, if you wish to progress into the 6ch cp side of the hobby.
