E flite Blade mSR or a Walkera 4#6?

Ok guys, I'm at a crossroads here. I have a Blade 400 and Walkera CB100. I'm lookin for another heli to bind with either transmitters. I'm looking for good FF and it wouldn't hurt to be able to fly outside (of course not it wind). My CB100 is great for indoor stuff, but FF is so-so because of the stupid "tail spear" problem.

So which one is more fun?

I don't own either, but flew an mSR in the store and was already bored with it You mentioned fun, so with your experience I would skip directly to a 4G6--or a Gaui200/Trex250 if you want to get into actual helicopters and you have the room

The 4#6 is by far a better heli, but the MSR is darn near indestructible. The 4#6 is not. I have both and find myself flying the 4#6 a lot more. I did just bring the MSR back out the other night and had a blast with it. So, my final answer is to buy both, LOL!!!

the msr is your best bet! I spend more time working on the 4#6 than every flying it....it's nothing but work....go check out pauls learning to flew the 4#6 thread...you'll spend 3 weeks just learning to hover...you want FFF and fun....msr

I agree I say go with the 4#6S. Especially if you plan on flying outside with it. I don't have a MSR but I hear hey are fun indoors. As for FFF there is loads of it with the 4#6. The speed is insane and it banks so easily.
