No,
i.e. tail set and tail motor holder, servos, board, are missing (take a look: http://www.helipal.com/spare-part_gr...arts_9958.html ) - ordered most of the other parts.

Just placed an order for myself and one for a friend. Been wanting to move to a mSR to compare with the Solo Pro. For ~$30, this will hold me over until there are more micro cp size helis.

I made the mistake of getting the mCX2. I hate it's flight characteristics so much. Seems like it's always blade striking and going down.

I have a feeling that this helicopter will stabilize around $60 once the kit becomes more commonplace in the market.

We'll see how quickly MyRCMart gets my order to me here in San Diego.

For $30 I think it's a bargain, just have to wait and see how it performs. I don't think it will increase in price, it would lose its appeal if it did.

Looks pretty good in that video above, a lot faster than I expected. For the price, it looks like a great little heli. Wish the main and tail motor used plugs though, sucks having to solder to the RX when you need to replace a motor.

Hi guys, im From Mexico, so sorry, but the english is not my first lenguage, i have been reading you for a while, i have two of these Great Wall 9958, and i think they are really goods, for a beginner-intermediate change, the 9958 is a freaking crash resistant, almost undestructible.

for the price of 47 USD shiped, from myrcmart, its really a good helicopter.

there are just few mods i recomend, if its your first single rotor blade helicopter i recomend to change the blades, use the MCX lower blades, they fit directly any mod needed, the MXC blades are soft, so your helicopter will lose agility but increase the easy-fly, that is really good if you are flying in a small room.

the second mod i suggest is: this heli, also have the weak tail motor problem, the tail motor is enough for a normal fly, but if you want to make some fast movements and spins, you will note that the tail is not strong enough. so the mod is pretty ease, change the tail motor, for the bravo sx tail motor, or for the mcx2 motros, they are really good motors and they will make yor heli tail more responsive and strong enough for quick spins and movements.

the only problem i see on this helicopter is that: it have beginner and senior mode, jsut by click in the trottle (same as nine eagles and MSR, but the problem i see is that the beginner mode is impossible to fly, be cause the response is to low, so for indoor flight would be imposible to avoid the walls.

i want to try the mod of usein the MSR flybar, and see what happen.


its all for now, i just want to say, 47 USD for this heli, was the best buy i had ever had.

I also put the order on July 1st as guest and only after, I registered a new account on Focalprice, so can't see the heli in my order list.
But they e-mailed me they would shipped it asap.

Has anyone received an update in your focalprice orders? i´ve ordered 2 helis and spare parts, 1 from focalprice and another one from MyRcMart to get some cheap parts, and maybe faster shipping time for what i see here. I hope some of them will be shipping soon in this week.
