A RTF 450 heli for only $59.99 incl tx, lipo and electronics? There must be a catch surely. Anyone bought one?

Sure there is a catch, it's cheap. That's the problem with cheap things, they are cheap.

I bought a kit version of it since it was $19 shipped. Figured it was worth a look. The "fiber" frame is some sort of strange circuit board looking material. It is very flexible, even when completely assembled. Every other part is cheap plastic. The blade grips are way too tight and are hard to rotate. The screw heads strip out before you can get them tight or the plastic that they screw into strips before you can get them tight. I flew it a couple of times, but it felt like an old blade cp or something. I started to see what parts I could save off of it to put in my parts box, but there really was nothing except for the flybar and rudder pushrod.
