I want to know some feedback too as I am also interested on this heli, I want to know if this is a good next step from MCX2. From the videos I saw from YouTube, this heli performs almost as stable like a co-ax (I hope it's true).

How could something that's almost as stable as a coax be a good next step up from a coax? You must want to spend a lot on very tiny steps.

Whatever... yes, it is almost as stable as a coax and it's not a bad heli for the money.

It's a good heli and it looks fantastic in the air. It's very stable and will hover on its own when well-trimmed, but it's not a coax. Don't expect it to fly like one.

I would advise to check out the Solo Pro II/Bravo SX technical FAQ thread in this forum to see all the details about it. There's also a separate general Bravo SX thread.

The SX is a very capable heli. Looking good, and responds very well to control inputs. In the FAQ thread V-man refers to you can find a flight vid of it, looking on youtube will give you even more ideas what to expect.

Yes, I'm taking baby steps as I don't want to frustrate myself, I just enjoy every single flight I made.

I have one and love it. The best price I found for the heli was from Advantage Hobby when you become a member. I did break a part on the main shaft, but since you can order replacement parts, I have a main shaft coming in the mail. After watching a video on this site, I may be able to repair the old shaft and keep it for a spare.

The Bravo SX is the right step by coaxial helicopter to a single rotor helicopter.
The price performance ratio is very good.

Not everyone wants to go right to 6 channel you know. I have a MiniCP that is my first 6 channel heli, but I still LOVE my 9958's and v911, and SP 328a.

I've got one and love it. Like yourself, I'm pretty new, and compared to a coaxil it moves quick, but it's manageable. Also looks awesome flying around.
Tail Rotor is a little noisy, but based on the Bravo SX I've been impressed with Nine Eagles. I'm even considering getting another one when the blue one comes to the U.S.
I got mine (White one) from Tower Hobbies for $59.

There's a saying "can't please them all..." right? This is not the way an average Bravo SX owner thinks about this heli. Much depends on the first time experience, I actually returned my first Solo Pro for instance, because I hated the way I had to compensate rudder turns with elevator, with the heli constantly either sliding forward or backward on rudder action.

Also motor quality seems to be under a lot of pressure these days. On the Bravo SX, but also on more expensive products like the mSR X. If you get one with this issue, I'm sure you won't be happy.
