Kestrel 500

I know this is an older heli but does anyone know if it's a decent one? Even though I'm still buying a larger 6 channel, I want something to mess around with and happened upon this one.

You can do a lot better, unless it's free.

Maybe I'll stick with my original thought of getting the V913.

That would be a better choice. The NE Kestrel had lots of problems with movement authority, tail holding and motor wear. Unfortunately, it was an odd size that made upgrades difficult.
