200 SRX Beginner Repair Thread

Why close it?

I was behaving, and posting pretty cool stuff.

Whatever.

Junkman questioned the validity of the dual ESC upgrade, and when someone actually offered a documented solution
with video, he closed the thread.

"Haters gonna hate"

Now the thread will get buried...

It's cool though, because nobody reads the first page, right Junkman?

The way I see it Junkmans thread was for new users to repair their helis, not hack, modify and confuse the crap out of new buyers stating that a stock heli is not going to work the way it was designed.
Just my observations of the Blade 200 topics.

I ran a poll on the 200 SRX that you might have missed.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...l#post28725916

When over 40% of the respondents (some of them veteran pilots) report problems shortly after taking it out of the box...

Oh, nevermind.

My definition of a beginner must be out of touch.

I thought a soldering iron was standard equipment for most people willing to
spend over $200 on a hobby grade helicopter.

Plug and Pray is taking over.

The poll only pertains to the people that responded to it.
I am sure there is many thousands of users that do not read forums, like to reply to forums, or own these helis that are having absolutely zero issues and never reply to the people posting in forums.
The majority of problems, in my opinion, are from people wanting something out of a product that it was not designed to do.
This 200 is a docile fixed pitch copter, if performance is wanted, step up to a product that is made to do this.
And don't even get me started on the Self Level aspects.
My rant, and I stand by it.
