Heli-Max Novus CP 2.4GHz EP RTF

What's the concensus on this micro indoor 3d heli...?

Looks like a great upgrade for my Blade MSR...

It's the 4G3. It's good. Fun. It's a squirrel though and will take time to learn if msr is all you have. If that's the case you need to be the patient type who enjoys a challenge. Your first upgrade will be the junk tail motor probably. Fly over grass Have 1200 flts. on mine, inverted circuits are no problem for it, even tho at first it seemed virtually impossible to get it inverted, let alone fly it around.

Oops just noticed on the TH site, it is the brushed motor version. That's ridiculous. No one wants brushed motors so skip that & get a 4G3 or 4G6 (125cp?) full brushless.

Yep agree,

You may want to consider a 90 degree FP heli first. But if you must purchase a CP in the size get one of the newer stabalising 3 axis Walkera's.

Imo you'd have alot more fun and progress faster if you went the 90 degree fp route.

Have to agree, and to elaborate on Ampdraws recommendation, the 4G6S is the upgraded version of the "new" helimax 125cp but it has a 3axis gyro to give a bit more stabilization.

Why buy a rebadged walkera in helimax colors for more when you can get a newer better version directly from them?
