Oh and you will all be happy to know Ive pulled off all the glued links and accidently broke a cable that will need soldering so there is no risk of premature crashulation. I will order the parts tomorrow off the same site I got my heli. They are a little dearer but all in stock and will come next day.

Do you think it is suitable for indoor flight?
I am not Jake, but absolutely (I flew my mSR in my "living room" in circles and figure 8s, forward and backward ... and the space I got is about 8x12ft !!)

The dramatic stuff can wait for me if this is the case
Jake & Erd have said it, but the mSR flies very similar to the 120, but in miniature. The mSRX with the AS3X is good and bad, too. It has it's own quirks and you'll be on those forums to see why as I've been doing lately. The short of it, however, is that it's obviously more stable and can supposedly fly into wind, too. But, if you get used to flying it, it won't do you as much good as the mSR (which doesn't fly into wind too well.) Indoors, it's a great training tool. I learned how to do hurricanes indoor--of course it cost me a lot of parts!

Well... after the link that BlackAnthem posted, I am confident the HP6DSM will work now. And the cable supplied with Phoenix is the only one you would need.

And I sure wish I had a missus I could force!!!

mSR can be just as docile as my mCX2 indoors if you're easy on the sticks and it's set up and working properly (nothing causing TBE). I can land mine all day long on a TV table. If you're limited on space you just have to be easy on aileron... this thing can lean quite hard and dart off quick... and be into the wall if you're not on top of it I bought my mSR specifically for indoor FP training.

While flying indoors during the winter I like to kick back with a cold one (or not) and keep the 'ole thumbs warmed up on the good 'ole MCX until spring

The only thing "MSR" that I have is on my MCX. The swashplate

The MSRX, IMHO, is better to train for the mCPX. It's tendencies reminded me very much of when I had my mCPX (before it got run over--story a few months back.) It doesn't handle like the MSR or 120 in that it has a tendency to bolt. There are also tricks to get it to behave like the "M&M" that I was recently brought up on. I can't explain all the differences since I haven't even flown it that much, yet. I am saving it for my winter fun indoors!

You have an mSR swash on the mCX?? What does that do for you? Anything?

Yup... that's what my mCX2 is for as well... relaxing flying from the couch during TV commercials...

... my mCX S300 has the mSR swash... or maybe it was the mCX2 swash (they're nearly identical, but one is dirt cheap)

Yeah, my helis haven't got much love since I bought the Champ, Losi-XXX-SCB and Slash Ford Raptor... which is basically the last half year... but I fired up the mCX2 a while back to test my Champ batteries when I was having issues and it all came back to me how much I love that little coax

I came across a vid I shot that was destined for the Tube of doing nose-in funnels with the 120 when we were discussing it here back in late spring... should get that thing uploaded sometime.

gives you short and long balls (for more throw)... the original mCX's swash doesn't have the dual setup. (sorry, just realized that one was for Mike)

EDIT
both mCX2 and mSR swashes are suitable "upgrades."

That's great news guys and exactly what I wanted to hear so the mSR is what I'm going with. I heard rumours it wasn't being produced anymore because of the mSRX version! But im sure I can hunt it down somewhere. I'm at uni now but on my way home so will have a good look now. The shop I normally use only has the X version.

Well that's awesome news (the remote not the lack of a forceable missus) and if it doesnt work it's just another excuse to get the DX6i that much quicker.

You can get those in the qualifieds all the time for 40-60$ depending if RTF or BNF, condition and provided spare parts ...
