Cool, did you ever bind your 120 to your HP6DSM?

No, but I may try it tomorrow unless the package arrives. I did bind it to the HP5DSM tonight (because it was handy) and it worked well. Problem is that I have so many great mixes, rates, expo, etc. on my DX8--it's harder than heck to fly basic again!

Indoor heli for the wife or kids or buddies as gifts Syma 107

It's an indoor co-ax IR 3 channel micro copter as costs $17 for a turn key kit! It's what got me started in RC from the beginning. I can't say enough good things about it, the hovering ability beats my mcx2 by far. Don't be alarmed mcx2 owners, it is a 3 channel non-hobby grade toy but it's the best one out there.
Just an FYI,
Brian

Actually, it was a cheap 2 channel heli that kept bouncing off the walls and ceilings, that got me interested in flying helis. Absolutely no control but, I loved it just the same....I wanted betterrrrrrrRRRRR

The 107's are a lot of fun and almost considered "hobby grade" with all the parts available. But, I really like my MCX much better. She was a beautiful "thumb" trainer on the sticks flying inside. I fly using my thumbs on the sticks now. You'll see

B Dog, It's only a matter of time before the addiction takes hold...God speed my Son,,,..God speed

I loved my old cheap 4 channels so I'm thinking it should be well up for the job, but its not cheap so I dont want to throw money away.
I've stated many times that if I had to get rid of all but one of my helis my mcx2 would hands down be the keeper. I fly it both indoors and outdoors and have spent almost nothing on replacement parts...

... and don't have to think too much while flying it.

Hi BD

I haven't received anymore messages other then the first two you sent. I hope now you received the reply to my second one as I thought it a little strange that you never got back to me but I know people are busy but it does say with a little symbol that I replied.

This is the problem when I can't check my sent folder. I will have to work out how to save sent messages. I think something has gone wrong somewhere. I hope you don't think I have been rude.

Regards

Matt

That's the cool thing about the DX8... It has an SD card to transfer (or save) all your settings. I saved them all before I shipped it out.

Take your time and work up to CP. Don't get too antsy to go that route as I did. It gets expensive real quick.
I get the impression that my skill level will also peak at FP which I'm more then happy with. Flying upside down, however impressive, really doesn't do it for me. Looping would scare the **** out of me.

After all the advice I think another coaxial is the way to go. Until I get some good time on the SR I think I would just write off the mSR if used indoors but I can see myself getting one later on when Ive got much better on the SR as i have quite a big living room and it would be good to keep my skills up.

Also the advice about just getting a cheap IR is not bad at all as my first 4 channel one that I got given in Aus that cost like $30 was actually really really fun and handled well and when it has served it purpose will be a bin job. The good thing about a blade coaxial will of course be the access to spare parts. I will give it a good think but I have just been paid so a rash decision might be in order lol

Thanks everyone

Oh, absolutley not! I didn't get your PM. I have seen other other members often mention that PM's didn't go thru. I have no idea why though.
