Wanna start a pool? How long between the release of the product and the posting of the bad news? Ah well, we're just speculating cynically. Lotta products don't live up to their expectations once they reach user's hands.

People stood in line for iphone4 like it was Star Wars VII. It will download David Lee Roth's private part. But it won't PHONE when held up against your head. Turns out, held that way completely snuffs the antenna and disconnects you. Stevie "Wonder" Jobs says, "if it doesn't work when you hold it that way, don't hold it that way." They knew it didn't work as a phone before it shipped. That's why they already sell a $30 plastic holster that's supposed to solve that. I already own a solution, a Samsung that works as a phone while being held up to your ear. And it didn't cost $400, it didn't cost anything at all.

Its due to the antenna running around the outside sides of the phone. You can lose signal by just moving your hands around it. Oh, and I to am going to get one of these SR 120's. They look like fun.

+1! I swear if I ever get my hands on an engineer I am going to beat some common sense into them.

You mean, "The more we flew it with a DX6i..."

The stock Tx with its wide "dead zones" near cyclic stick center makes flying more difficult than it needs to be.

no kidding, those crappy stock radios make it difficult to fly anything. I could fly a brick with my 6i easier then any micro with one of those.

Had a good laugh, thanks.

These HH threads really roll along even when the product won't be released until ....well a while!

I understand why they went brushed main and tail on the MSR...but this should be brushless imo. I'm guessing it will top $200US MAP.

Thinking a UFLY with a CB180 head will probably come close if not surpass this heli and a whole lot of heli for those dollars.

I think I read this will have board servos like the MSR...please no!

Here's a HBFP with the CB180 head...

hands off #2 hbfp cb180.mp4 (0 min 35 sec)


Amp, laughing at the witty signatures and banter, Amp

The stock radio is alright for what it is. If they included a much better radio with the helicopter, it would have raised the price. Anyone that wants a better radio has that option.

EFlight could diffuse a lot of the criticism about their products if they would just address their tail motor issues. They have had tail problems since the Blade CP about 6 years ago. How long does it take?

I agree; DD tails aren't as great as other options
