No. That was the huge (in comparison) Walkera 38# that was reportedly underpowered.
The Esky Tandem is not underpowered. It does require some tuning to get the CG right (mainly moving the battery tray forward or backward). It may also require some tuning on the gyro pot to make the rudder control smooth but otherwise flies well enough. The one thing you have to watch out for is blade strikes. Do not pump the cylic to make the heli pitch violently as you will cause blade strikes and these blades will severely chip themselves if that happens. Otherwise it flies fairly well. I've flown it outside in no wind and it's pretty fun. It also doesn't have any LEDs and thus is very easy to disassemble and work on.
