Best 3D micro heli that can be used with Futaba

Hi. What do you guys think is the best 3D micro heli? I have blade mcpx and hate it. it's brushed and don't want to spend any more dime on it.
And I have Futaba T7C radio and it uses FASST system. I'm looking for the 3D micro heli that can be used with this radio. Advice please. It looks like Align Trex 150 can't be used with the radio.

I have heard newer V120D02s come with means to use Futaba, but have not seen such. I bought my two last summer and they did not have it .

If heavy into 3D....trex 250 dfc plus ....
.....suggest 120 for 3D lite, which indeed has extra electronics to fly either Devo or Futaba...suggest for a few dollars more trex 250 DFC Plus over Trex 150....unless smaller size is an important requirement....All three helis I have mentioned fly very well... right out of the box....trex 150 might need a swashplate upgrade if Align has not fixed the swashplate separating problem....

Note: check helis great descriptions at helipal.com....my relationship with them is only as a very happy customer...

I don't think any micro heli is compatible with Futaba FASST. The Trex 150 and V120D02S are compatible with Futaba S-FHSS only,

now that they have the micro icon and brain units you could buy a 180cfx, slap one of those on it with futaba rcvr and you're golden. Sell the old receiver to recoup some of your funds.

Yes u r right. Best bet seems to be buying another radio. I'm really wanting to buy trex 150. Well gotta give it a thought.. I have 450 but want something I can fly in my neighborhood. It can be pretty windy here and mCPx is not stable w wind as u know.
