I ordered this heli however, i got notice from bestofferbuy that the item is no longer produced and they offered a phoenix as a replacement or I could cancel my order. I opted to cancel my order.


Found this on Bestofferbuy.com this morning.



Controller looks the similar as the 6010 phoenix, but without the accel button
Frame looks similar too, with just a different canopy and lights

3 Channel (no Gyro listed)
20.00 Shipped

I saw that ebay item before I saw the post about it here. I went to sleep figuring that they would still be there when I woke up but I was wrong. Oh well, going to try out that 6020 to see how I like it.
I did the same thing, put it on my watch list around noon today and planned to pick one up tonight. Oh well.

I emailed the seller, and she told me the only color they have is yellow. I was hoping to get a red one because I already have a yellow one. My arrival date is scheduled on the 3rd or 4th. The seller has alot of positive feedbacks as well. She also told me they sell other rc parts.

Thanks for the tip!

Great thread!

I have no link to offer for any sub $20 (delivered) heli, but just wanted to say that threads like this add a valuable resource to the group. Good job DW!

Thanks for the compliments... I figured it was the next step from some of the other threads I am subscribed to. After looking at them, I see they all had the same thing, relating to inexpensive 3 or 4 channel helicopters.

I don't know about you, but I start to balk at when a 3 channel is over a certain price. For me, its about $25. under that, its very considerable. Of course, there are always exceptions, like if its unique, in some way. I also will pay more for known brands such as the new Syma's (S102G, S108G, S109, S110G, S111G) that are coming out. I will be on those even though they are a little higher than I would normally pay.

For 4 channels my balk price goes up some. I try to stay under $50

I generally don't like 2 channels, but i think they are worthy to some people. So i include them here as there are a lot of good 2 channels that can be found for under $20

yes and there should be a lot of deals over the next couple of months in this price range considering january is stock clearance month in retail, then the chinese new years passes thereafter. For me to spend $25 on these it really has to be something special, i think i got spoiled on the last four i picked up;

2 x z005 at $15 each, 1 x s107 at $17 and u807 at $15 and all with delivery included

I ordered this heli.
Note, this is different than 6010, there is no "ACCEL" function or button on the TX.

Well, I broke down and ordered the No. 809 also ... and a couple of other non-heli stuff (cheap folding knife - search for E41508 on BOB, and some super strong magnets to put on oil filters on the cars).

It would not let me use the discount code SNAP10 because I used it once already. It did however let me use BOB10 for 10% off. Guess it keeps track of what discount codes you've used.

Also, when going into PayPal it doesn't show the 10% discounted total ... but when you pay BOB it shows the correct amount paid by PayPal ... strange, but it works.

Also, note that PayPal will charge you 1%. From PayPal's website: " A cross border fee of 1.0% applies to payments received from senders in another country."

Ah more than that I am afraid. The frame itself is enitirely different from the landing gear up to the motor mounting. Some aspects look similar though.
