i personally think this is just the first in many airplanes of this size with its capability. I believe its the "new" micro size. Atleast this is what i'm hoping

Totally agree. There's only so much you can do with the UMX Sbach or Beast. Don't get me wrong - I love both planes but if you're jonesing for a true micro 3D plane this is probably the one.

How about buying one and flying it before you say the servos are not adequate. My guess is this plane is capable of more stock than most of the people posting in here.

Blade released a new 3-channel coax Red Bull heli, not the brushless monster mcpx I was secretly hoping for.

Got yah, was looking for another plane, forgot about the BLADE line up.

If you want a great flying 3D heli, cheap enough price to be affordable and VERY stable in 3D, you should look at the 300X. I went from my mCPX to that and can tell you, almost don't fly the mCPX any more. The 300X is SERIOUSLY AWESOME! Very stable.

Anyhow, back OT, with this one that's TWO planes in the MICRO, not Ultra Micro, size this summer. Zero and thie Extra. Sign of things to come no doubt. I was hoping for something more 3D capable to replace the Parkzone Extra 300, but am still not sure I am sold on this SIZE! I have a ton of 3 cell, 2200 lipos, so hate to get into something that requires yet another back of new size lipos!

That said, WOW, that video is amazing!

I was reading the manual, and it says if not using the y harness to use differential mixing. I have never used differential, and wonder if I would even notice at my skill level.
