KB, shirley you wouldn't do that. (Sorry, second time today I called you Shirley.)

Rather than wreaking vengeance, lemme paypal you to mail it to me. The novelty alone would be worth it, even if it doesn't fly worth a flarg.

Kato, LV4 is still my idea of a good-handling micro. Just remotored it after a year, good as new.

This thread is an example of "Roach Baiting" at work.
This product is not a good buy.

Thanks killbucket. The Free Bird looks a lil different. The first one (phantom) has a tail rotor blade, but no motor that i can see. Do u think that's just for looks or could it be functional? It also has the metal skids and tail boom (sorry if that's not what it's called) unlike the freebird, which looks like it was with a lot more plastic.

and the 2nd one (lucky boy) has many more metal parts than the freebird (skids, tail set, ect.)

or are they both just beefed up Free Birds?

thanks in advance to anyone, still a newbie in this hobby.

I've gotten 2 bad Lipos and wrong size heli blades from planemodel###. Will never buy from any vendor with that name again.
