Anyone know about these micro 3 channels?

Anyone know anything about these micro 3 channels?

They both look very nice. The second one in particular is beautiful. But I don't think I care much about looks if it flies nice. I'd like a quick little durable flyer to tease the cat with, and the 6010's seem to be either sold out or overpriced everywhere I look.

nice (especially the second) but remember that a shorter tail boom (compared with other mini heli) means less forward speed

The first one seems to be a variant of the Mini-x/SH 6025-1. The heli looks identical with the exception of the missing vertical fin near the tail motor. The TX is a different form factor. Big thread about the 6025-1 here...

I haven't seen second one before. It looks to be Syma's answer to the 6025-1. I'm liking the new Syma controller though...

You may already know this but both of these are much smaller than the 6010's; about half the size.

No, I didn't realize that. That should make them a bit more durable, right?

I can't wait to start flying my first RC, and I can't wait to torment the cat.

I need something I can crash, like that German guy who beat up that poor little 6010. BTW; Did anyone ever call PETH on him? He deserves what he gets.
