Question
Wich brand

Hello all,

After flying a co-axial (SYMA) for a few weeks i bought a mini 4ch FP heli (nine eagles). Slowly i am getting the hand in flying the 4CH helicopter. Now i want one to fly outside. So that means a bigger one but still a FP. I would like something of the size of the honeybee FP V2. Now i prefer having helicopters of one brand.

so what should i go for?

my wishes
- A 4 ch FP for flying outside.
- Weight must be under 0,5 kg. (To keep the police happy)
- may costs not too much
- easy to obtain parts
- prefer a lot possibilities to upgrades
- and then finally the brand. Later I want a 6CH heli from the same brand.

thanks guys and sorry for any mistakes in my writing as English is not my first language.

Unfortunately, single rotor FP's don't fly very well in windy conditions, regardless of size and brand. With that in mind, if you want something bigger that can fly outdoors on a calm day and you want to stick to the Nine Eagles brand...

- Solo Pro 328: mid sized FP
- Solo Pro 100D 3D: micro sized CP
- Solo Pro 228: large sized FP
- Solo Pro 180 3D: mid sized CP

Maybe it was unclear. But I dont need to stick with nine eagles. An other brand is good too.

I have found that nine eagles are harder to find in international stores as well as their upgrades/ parts

I have been looking at esky and walkera. They both have a fp big enough for outside and good 6ch heli.

FP will have issues in any amount of wind over a few mph no way around this
imo id get a mCP X and DX6i if you really want to fly out side
