+1 Bo........I liked my Hoten till I managed to score an Armattan prototype for cheap. If you do manage to break something the parts can be cheaper than a Hoten or WL......Chris's support, quick shipping, ship cost, etc. are well known.
The power & handling of my V-tail w/ devo 7e/deviation/dsm2 have avoided many crashes that would have put other things in the dirt....
Good advice...........

Raw89, the Armattan is a fantastic size and with power to rip.. hoten-x on steroids.

Yeah Chris is aweome, its really great to fly something that in fact is backed by somebody. that said, I have lawn-darted mine a couple of times with no ill effects, (other than to the lawn)

I got my Hoten-X bl from Wow hobbies when it first came out. They had it on add/ plus extra free battery. Since then quads have exploded all over the place. I'm not into cameras etc. I fly mostly smaller c/p's up to 250 size. Its still fun to fly
Hoten-X bl/ Scorpion Y-6/ Ladybirds V1. I'm sur better stuff out there but happy with what I have. I am not in peeing contest with anybody nor give a hoot what others have and say. My Walkera multi rotors/ plus good fleet of c/p helis have provren their worth to me big time. Total is over a dozen birds and some two years old. All fly and believe me i fly alot. Yes some repairs to a couple but overall they did better than Blade. Clone failures I gave up on them. V262 is big stupid toy.

I have been flying just over two years now. . Little over a year started with c/p heli micros. Its been fun and flown alot. Kinda let my quads have it easy. Flying Hoten-X/ Ladybirds etc forgot how much fun they are. Now going to include them more into flying routine.
More and more of my smaller helis are now bl. the Hoten-X bl adds to the fun.
I fly Quads/ helis that need a flyer to control them. Not push botton flying with safe/ come home feature.etc. Not for me.
