Buy cheap or buy twice, and that's literally all I have to say. :-(
Thats a nice model right there.

You guess wrong. I never ever buy used aircraft or equipment. I bought it brand new from wow hobbies - it even says so in the description under the video. I think they assembled it from spare parts in the garage.

You have lots of options in this game;

The easy option half good looker and high maintenance road like the first image (Walkera).

Or, we have the educated, reliable, and great performance machine that requires ZERO maintenance.

I'm DONE with Walkera, and frankly, they DESERVE bum reputation they have rightly earned.
HAHA, The fact that she is attractive and does not harbor animosity towards your helicopters, hell, even poses with them for you. That's all most guys in this hobby could ever dream of

Even sent them a link to the video. They said everything was normal, it's just a very hard heli to fly and suggested I buy the cb-180.
They were right about one thing - when all the servos lock up for 40 seconds in flight, it is a very hard heli to fly.

The older one needs loads of lubrication.

The Triflow costs me a fortune. Ha ha. :-D

ANYWAY, the weather here Seattle during the winter is pretty bad. I'd probably just get Blade helis for indoor flying.

The nano is an actual indoor heli that can take a beating. Most people seem to be enjoying them. It's my next micro purchase for sure.

I hear what's being said but where/what/who?

If I'm going to purchase a Walkera branded Heli smaller is better and invest in a healthy supply of parts right away.

Otherwise spend the same as all that but on something better.

Ok.

But in the fixed pitch world what would qualify as better quality than a Walkera brand? Right now I'm enjoying a 9116 crash free and have parts a-plenty for it.

Where do I go now?

Reminds me of an old joke that I can't tell here, but the punch line was "Oh yeah, I sold your thermos bottle for $125"
