Why do you have a smaller tv beside a bigger one?
It looks hard to hover...

Edit: nevermind, I didn't see your first video

Off topic, but is there a bigger motor on the 6020 or why do you have that boom on the s107. I was actually much more impressed with the flight of it as I didn't know they flew that fast.

Lots of fore/aft rock with the 5888 it seems. Or was that new pilot jerkiness do you think? Close ups of the servo movement and slow hovering would be cool.

the 6020 has a bigger motor and if you learn to whip it around you can get it pretty fast. the 5888 is kinda wobbly but also am not as good with it. im going out of town but ill try to take another video when i get back

When I finally see a(n under $50) bitty copter do a "Christmas Tree" shape in the air and set back down where it took off, there will be no stopping me from buying it.

While this DOES look close, there does still seem to be a lot of remote operate (vs control) in its movement.

The liftoff at the beginning of the vid was interesting, as it wasn't straight up, more the messy ground-release my new S006G (but that's tho only complaint, so far) exhibits, than what I'd expected.
But I DO see your control of it improve as the vid goes on, so maybe this was just you, not the machine. Nice flying, BTW, little copters, regardless of size, just want to fly smack into expensive flat screens.

Ya GOTTA have a dedicated gaming screen, and here we see the wise choice: it's the bigger one! SONY- I am TICKED that I cannot link my two PS2's together...FAIL! Wifey and I could be in two adjacent rooms during our Killzone matches, and FINALLY not be seeing each other's viewpoint (I'm dang likely to dig up two old wonky PS1's just so we can do this, with an appr. game title. At least the old NFS will work.
But I digress from topic once again...

Putting a Giggy-Hurts Tx in one of these? YAY! GHzzy getting cheaper! Who wants to lay bets on all the IR copters going giggy soon, once "GYRO" stops moving stock?

Kill, my son has an old 30" tv in his room. I lugged it down into the game room basement so that he and his friend could play modern warfare 2 on xbox 360 with two xbox's xbox live. Apparently it is more fun on different tv's in the same room than it is using headsets at their respective houses...

Not sure what you mean as the demise of 4ch...

Now see, this one is a 2.4g coax 4ch. Yes cheaper in cost, but it has every thing the conventional 4ch coaxes do. Maybe not on the fluid hobby type scale, but still there in practice if not perfection. For me, 3 channels helis is like flying an Rudder/Elevator plane as opposed to full house controls. RET planes are just fun and relaxing sometimes and it is amazing how much stuff you can do with them. They are often set up with throttle left stick and rudder / elevator right stick instead of rudder/throttle left and aileron/elevator right. I doubt I will ever buy a CP heli (never say never) as they take too much practice. I am going backwards having a 4ch micro FP solo pro. I want something (preferably that I don't have to mod) that is the same size and three channel so I don't have to practice and think. I just don't know why they all don't use a stronger tail motor setup. I want the speed of the little FP. I started a thread in search of a cheap 4ch, but after hours of reading, three ch easy if fast is what I will likely wind up and buy. I'd even consider paying a few bucks more for a firebird that has been already modded for speed...
