I have had both brushed and brushless motors, I was completely sold on the brushless but the MSR has proved that a brushed motor will work just as good if the helicopter is light enough. On the blade CP and Honey Bee King 2 the heavy physical load on the motor wore out the bushings to fast, and the high amp draw destroyed the brushes quickly.
Again on the MSR it also broke the myth that all tail motor heli were junk, the MSR holds its tail solid and the tail motor did not burn up every 15 to 20 flights, Again only because of its size and weight. It will be interesting to see the reports when these are released as to how the 120 pushes these limits.

And this is worth saying again

Part of me is just about to do it anyway; I hate feeling trapped to spectrum and only those models.

OK, I think we need to take it for what it is, Myself I like fix pitch helis and that is far as I'am and going to go,the msr was made to fly inside, the 120 looks like it will take alittle wind and we can fly in the back yard. I cant wait for it to come out ,I will buy one. And also I think eflight does a very good job, all my helis have work awesome with no problems other then me crashing from time to time, I think there will be a big market for the 120 for people like me,(It could use brushless motors) but the msr has trun out to be a good heli without them. I am sure there will be a cp come out soon for the other guys but only time will tell. So I like to take this time to think eflight for putting out such good products. that have brought a little happiness to my life. GOD BLESS

P.S. for the guys who like cp helis ,your wish will come true soon enought.

Do you know something we don't? I have been waiting for a spektrum compatable sub-micro for a very long time and have not seen any signs of one

I think we are all just hoping, Horizon needs to follow the saying "If you build it, they will come."

I am afraid a lot of people are going to be disappointed about flying outside. I have never heard of any FP that will fly well in much wind.

The old helis like the Heli-baby were fixed pitch, super size, and flew outside really great... well, as great as a FP heli with poor throttle control and mechanical gyro can fly...

Know your roots...

Roots, Ha! 32 years ago I owned and tried to fly one of these. I failed with great gusto. But, I sure wish I still owned it.

Yeah that one's also on Youtube. Point is, there can be a large fixed pitch, nothing "impossible" about it, as I've occasionally heard people say.

Good old Dave Herbert. Did you see his latest video of being in a Tornado?
Scary stuff.
