What kind of Heli did you get for Christmas?

Thought I'd see what everybody got for Christmas. My wife got me a Walkera HM 60B. So far so good. 4 flights and I'm getting it trimmed the way I like. What did everybody else get?

You may be starting off with a somewhat challenging heli. Have you flown any coaxials, like the Blade CX2? If not, you might want to fly one of those for a month or 2 before flying a collective pitch heli. If you are already familar with the RC controls with your soaring experience, you might be OK, but it's just a thought. The sticks on soaring, I assume control the same functions, but I expect the feel of flying is totally different.

John i have flown coaxial and colective helis before but nothing of this caliba.i also have reflex xtr.I have done a couple of circuit with a trex 450 xl but that was a long time ago.I just put another bat pac through the BA mainly to get the tracking right which was only one turn off.To hover pretty much hands free on 2 clicks of left tail trim is all it took.I was very marticulas with the set up and i wont be rushing in trying to do anything before learning all the proper procedures first.It is great to have a forum like RCG to learn so much more than you could otherwise.

Shane;Who also has a COPTERX SE VII coming which was going to be my learning heli

I have a lot to learn , have been flying MCXs and MSR , but this cp will be all new . Training gear and spare blades ordered , and will have to wait for warmer weather in the Spring to try it outside for learning .
I am so happy !

None for me, I'm good to go. For my brother though, I got him a new set of Align Pro325 woodies, align tail blades and tail fins, cost more then his HK kit, but should make a big difference.

No issues in over two years with two other helis setup similar. Look at almost any micro RTF. They have the RX within 1-2cm of the motor from the factory. The pics make this one look closer than it really is. Its sitting out about 1 inch or so from the motor case. I have some blue wiring braid that I plan on putting on it to clean up the wiring so I will be re routing and re arranging a few things anyway at that time
