Still, I'm sure I'd crash it and then have to hate repairing it (even if parts were cheap to acquire).
Oops, thought that was a BNF for that price. Yeah, probably not a good price for a 550 size once you add flybarless controller although I'm not really in tune with Heli prices. I thought I heard RC Today guys talking about some 600 class machines all ready to go in the $900 range which this would easily get to so...
