Recommendation for a good 200/250 Heli

Hi!

Ive a Nine Eagles Solo Pro 228 since 5 years ago. Ive enjoy many times with this model, but it has also given me some troubles, even without crash it. I think that this electronic is delicate (at this time I have broke 3 receptors with insignificant faults) and tail is even more delicate (you have to replace it many times). Anyway, I'm about to retire him soon.

I wonder if anybody knows other better quality helis of that size (200 or 250 ), I mean to be more consistent: better and durable machine. I mean both 4ch or docile 6ch (I have not experience on 6ch ).

Sorry for my bad English. Thank you very much.

V912 bl is cheap and decent 4 ch. If you want bigger V913 db bl even better. 6 ch you go into c/p. Blade 200 SR-X has two bl motors and FBL F/P alot more expensive but much better quality. Walkera Master c/p is 250 size but servos should be replaced and you may not want to go there. It is easy to fly.

Walkera Master c/p is from the looks of it also discontinued, which may or may not be a problem.

Walkera MasterCP....just buy three 7.6.9 walkera servos to upgrade the stock 7.6.6 servos it comes with....it is still being sold....parts are no problem....really best choice of where to go in the size you want......if you had more experience with CP helis I would suggest Align 250 DFC Plus....already assembled and ready to go... When I started 3 plus years ago, I also bought and flew the 228.....nice, but noisy if I remember correctly....
Your english is fine....

There are some who post like they have last word what Walkera is up to. They are pushing hi-end quads. The Super/ Mini/ V120D02s/ Master/ V450D03 are still popular. V450d01 V2 is still sold as others.
If you have bucks and know how Align 250 DFC/ Gaui-X-2/ Micro heli kit/ plus others are available. Best 250 c/p is Master for $$. Remove plastic stock servos before you break them and use for something else. The Master has two long threads on it with tons of info. My Mex buddie has Align 250 DFC Plus and like both of his. They come BNF and RTF. RTF Has rebranded Futaba 6 ch TX.

Having owned a Gaui X2, Oxy 3 and had a friend with a TRex 250, if you want a real 3D machine, then the Oxy 3 is the way to go, but also the most expensive. The other 2 have, in my opinion, design defects especially with the tail control.

All run 250mm size blades.

Id say A clone TRex is good (cheep parts) or if your not up to assembling a kit, i would offer a skyartec X3V witch is very docile in green mode, but spears heve become expensive.
