Yes Frank ,all OK he has yet to pick it up. I have the scale body from the Solo Pro on the way from Helipal as well as a few other spares [fortunately a couple of motors]
The service from H/King has also improved fortunately .I ordered variouse parts on wednesday and they were posted on Thursday. That's pretty good.

It's normal for this type of helicopter to pitch forwards on right rudder and to move backwards a little with left rudder.

When turning to the right ,if you use a combination of right tilt and rudder,you will find a smoother turn can be made.
Happy Landings

Just like on the Solo Pro, they copied the SP so closely, this trait is also present in this clone.

True, although not as pronounced as on this design. And the popular mSR has on board mixing to cancel it out.

A Solo Pro, Bravo SX, or the mSR clone, the GW 9958.

My vote is for a Solo Pro.

Technically, something like a Walkera V100D01 is more advanced, but that doesn't mean that I would recommend it. It's flybarless and has brushless motors, but I still think the Solo Pro is a more fun heli.

Thanks frank for your help! I have had battery issues in the past - do you know the exact battery i have to order for this heli - do i have to make any modifications to it or will it fit right in?

The battery is almost a direct fit, unfortunately the black plug is slightly too big and needs to be sanded down a fraction. Don't let this put you off though, it only takes a few seconds and can be done with a nail file.

This is the one you want: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dproduct=14730
