I wanted to tell you guys i am taking another approach..

I have a lama V3 sitting around doing nothing... I like it but the tail is brittle easy to break... so i decided instead, of looking for another larger 4 channel to bang around...

I am going to get the extreme landing gear, tail and canopy... total is about $39.54

it turns this...

I have a Lama V2. I am thinking the same thing as you. Check these out:

Comes well equipped with full set of main replacement blades, tail rotor blade, USB charge cord, and even a screwdriver. $18 bucks shipped to the US.

Wow, that thing looks nice. When they say shipping is free to US via china air; does that mean that they only pay to get it to the boarder, and you pay from the port of entry to your house? Or do they pay the whole way? Has anyone had any real experience?

Miracle Mart is where i ordered them from. I have the metal head pieces already (and i like them), my only issue with stock is the tail is like an eggshell... I decided to go all out and get the heavy duty stuff and change the look as well so i went for all three. I can always change it back.


I think it will be a heck of a lot more durable and a good way to spend my refund from BOB.

I like the two canopy examples in this listing. Too bad the seller
only has 4 ratings.

OMG that is awesome.

I think they need to post a video demo with that auction so we can verify the number of channels.
