Still, people spend easily $200 extra just to make the 130X fly. To people affording this expense, it probably is the best heli ever. To others, it's a piece of junk.
Is this 130x worth ~$500? For me, no, it isn't.
I have had 3 and not one required any extra money to get flying. IMHO they are the best flying 120 size helis i have owned to date.
From what I have read the people that have had issues do not require 200 in upgrades. Most either require a stiffer tail fin, balanced tail blades or a straight tail shaft
