Double Horse 9053 or Syma S33

I'm looking to get a bigger coaxial that I can fly in the gym and occasionally outdoors. A couple buddies got the 9053, but I was looking at the Syma S33 - just to be different. Can I get some pros and cons? Thanks very much.

Dave

PS: I just thought of something - would a FP heli be better? I do fly RC planes and I have several mini copters that I fly. All my minis are coaxial. Just thought I'd ask.

I'm not experienced in heli flying but i've just got the Syma S33 and it won't fly forward in a slight breeze so you would need to make some modifications.
I put a weight in nose cone, did a DIY tail blade extension(with a business card lol) and took the tail decorations off. It now flies forward instead of just hovering but... a little gust does push it sideways or cause propeller slap(hope it's not high when that happens)

I know nothing about the 9053 but maybe the above will allow you to compare.

comparing the specs the s33 and 9053 are very similar both FP coaxials.. I do not own either one because if they can't fly outdoors in a little wind, I don't buy them.. to fly outdoors you need at least a 4 channel helicopter that gives you more directional control and most coaxials don't fly outdoors very well anyway..

there is one coax that does and its very easy to fly in any environmental condition, but its a bit more expensive..

hp x-2

or you may want to look at some single rotor FP heli's like the v912/v913 or fx061/fx078.. they can fly outdoors and don't cost quite so much..
