Maybe i should change the rules to be less than $20 for 2-3 channel. Less than $40 for 4 channel?

Right on Brutha! I have to admit, this deal is very exciting. and hopefully is a sign of the things to come for 4 channels coaxials.

I am a little worried, now that I look at the seller details. Seems like a new seller with minimal feedback. I should have only pulled the trigger on one, but the deal is too awesome to lose out on, so went for two.

Also to all our thread subscribers i am adding the under $40 limit for 4 channels or more to the main rules at the top of the thread.

Yeah, they have a couple great feedbacks from buyers who bought the same 4ch heli, but they all live in Australia. I am interested in seeing how the shipping goes to you guys here in the US.

Doubletap you are not helping me dealing with my heli addiction at all. I ordered four #809s just right after you (at $15.30 each ), now I just ordered two Falcon 8913s after you. I guess I also have a risk addiction as well. But thank you just the same.

Does this version have one or three trim knobs for rudder, roll, and pitch?

Don't know, I would think any knobs on the tX is non-operational, I've never seen a 4 Channel model helicopter with a TX that has "knobs" for the trim switches. I've seen alot of 3 Channel toy helis with TX's with fake non-operational trim tabs, perhaps they use the same TX cases that are already available for 4 channel models, or they include the fake trim tabs thinking that they give some additional appeal to the cheapo 3 channel toy heli if they make them look like a 4 channel model. We will see.

Where did you expect his mother and girlfriend to live? Perhaps once they finish the big heli-scheme hit, they"ll be able to aford that feedback generating gizmo.

That's the thin thread that keeps me from ordering yet another heli, in addition to the two 809 and one 6025 that's on their way.

By the way, I ordered the 809 from BOB just as it was published here, but so far the order is in "Proccessing" status. No delivery.

I"m Lyuv, and I"m a coaxheliholic.
