Rotor Concept Spycopter 4

I was walking through the AMA Expo last month and have been eying the Helis and the Quads and such and came across the Rotor Concept booth. They were selling this all in one package RTF Heli for only $99.

It comes complete with Transmitter, battery, charger and the Heli.

You can see the details of the Heli here: http://www.rotorconcept.com/sp4.asp

Once I got this thing home and took it to the park for a little first flight, I did pretty well, considering I've never flown a Heli. I did happen to cut power once while at about 10 feet from the ground and it landed pretty hard. Nothing really broke, however I lost a tail rotor screw and a bushing/spacer. It took me several tries to get ahold of the company and never really got anywhere with that, so I started looking around and found that this Heli looks exactly like the Walkera v200d01. I then did a search and found my needed screws and bushing/spacer here in the Parts/Upgrades tab: http://www.xheli.com/walkeraheli-v20...1-rtf-lcd.html

The parts from xheli website are definitely much cheaper.

Here is from the Website:

Here are a few photos from the site and one in the night that I've taken.

That's definitely a V200D01 and it's a great find. It's not very durable and it is obsolete, so stock up on parts while you can. The gears for the tail drive are the most critical parts, front and rear.

Thank for the input....I'll definitely stock up on things I think might get broken.
