It is tempting, but I bet it's a type one remote. That's the only thing keeping me from it. I'm going to wait and see.

It does look like it's only for the 11 items show here, but apparently the guy at BOB didn't program the software right or something.

Can't wait to see if this is the Huan QI HQ852 heli ... I'm betting it is. What a deal. If it's not, then oh well ... it was worth sending $24 to find out.

All the other websites showing the HQ852 say it's "New" ... so seems fitting that BOB just added it today to their catalog.
Question is, is this Infrared or Radio Control, I won't buy a 4 channel without RF control, Cheapo Ir control is too much a compromise for using with full function 4 channel. There is no pictures with the TX, and there is nothing in the ad copy to indicate which it is.

Oh well, I dropped the hammer on one of these, hell, what you expect, when RC HELI CRACK is dangled in front of this strung out junkie's face, can't help myself. How can one turn down a RF controlled 4 channel for $24.03. Why even try to resist.

Well, I guess I changed my mind on waiting, I picked up that HuanQi 852 for $24.03... I really gotta stop buying Heli's for myself, I think i might get one for my father for an early fathers day gift but thats it for me for a while!

I'm in. Ordered the HQ852. It should be fun for the backyard.

It uses a 7.4v 800mah lipo. I have a bunch of those.
