All large coax helis are 3 channels, which makes them very susceptible to any wind. Something that large, that has little control, can be dangerous, so you aren't going to find a lot of good places to fly it. That one is no better or worse than a bunch of other large 3 channel coaxes.

Any rear motor driven 3ch coax like the MJX-T34 I once owned, is absolutely useless in anything but total calm. And bigger just means bigger crashes!

My 3ch adjustable servo-driven MJX-T23 can penetrate a light breeze but handling is certainly limited without the aileron channel.

My 4ch MJX-F39 with configurable servo throws in the tx and manually adjustable servo arms has some potential. It will, of course have the usual coaxial limitations.

I have not had it long enough to fully test it but all my previous MJX helis have been very good quality and mostly good fliers. I have only had it out in a tiny breeze (still winter here) but control is excellent and can easily do a 8' banking circle, maybe even tighter.

I have a 6 year old 4 channel Hirobo XRB lama. Wonder what that is worth these days.

Not much. Hirobo parts have become nearly impossible to get, unless you live in Japan.

It's too large for inside in a room... maybe a gym.
And it'll go downwind, -only-, in any breeze you can feel.

Wait. What ? 3D with a coax. ? :

"Since rudder trim changes caused by wind and other meteorological changes, and varieties of helicopter attitude changes are automatically cancelled, tail rudder operation becomes easy, making it perfect for 3D flight."

My servo'd T23 can penetrate some light wind, BUT . . . when the wind has your big coax sideways and you're trying not to crash from 60' up, but you can't regain control, 'cause you only got 3 channels, and . . . . . ok that's another (true) story.

No 3D - just (D)own. I couldn't hold'em, so I had to fold'em.

Just got one and really can't compare it to any other brands, as it's the first heli I've purchased that I can get replaceable parts for... the other was AirHog (I know, I know...rookie mistake). The GT seems to be a fairly sturdy heli and I've been able to maneuver it fairly well once the wind dies down. The build quality is about what I expect from a mass produced Chinese toy, but at least parts are easy to come by! I ws able to fly it in a light breeze - enough to move the heli around in a hover - and I was able to gain headway with it into the wind. No much, but I was able to retain control. A few tweaks with weight distribution and it should maneuver with the ability of a 4-channel.
