Price drop + servo replaced!Walkera 4G6S + 2801 Pro + Parts Parts and more Parts! :-)
Update: Ordered and installed replacement servo, heli is now flying again!
Also...price drop of $25! plus am including shipping. So, $275 for working unit plus a ton of parts, includes shipping! Here is a vid of the heli hovering last night after my gf and I finished doing maintenance and servo install:
Last year I decided to buy a second heli (flying my Trex 450 for about three years now) that was small enough for indoor flight, but ready out of the box for aggressive sport flying outdoors, and ready for a motor upgrade once I got the hang of it. After much research, I purchased the Walkera 4G6S from WOW Hobbies. I also bought the upgrade motor and spare parts. It ended up being a good match for my given goals.
Reasons I'm selling: I've recently caught the multicopter bug, and this little guy is not getting any time from me. I never really flew it much (Maybe a dozen flights). Also, I didn't consider how the smaller frame and parts sizes (those tiny screws! :-) would affect my ability to work on a heli in this class. But my big hands just aren't as well-suited for this as they are the rex (which doesn't have a lot of room to work with itself).
I'm leaving the following information here for reference, but it no longer applies since the servo has been replaced and the heli is flying again: "The last time I flew it I had a blade strike, and I think I shot one of the swash servos. Either that or the tinkering I was doing with the transmitter settings resulted in a wrong setting somewhere. Now that servo either doesn't respond at all, or gets jittery, depending on I don't know what :-) The motor, lipos, rx, tx, heli frame, boom, main and tail rotor assemblies, tail rotor gear, etc all look and work great (well, it might be time to replace the main gear, with one of the two spares that are included)." UPDATE: Servo replaced and heli is flying again! See latest video above.

Update: Servo replaced, heli is back in the air!
GF and I replaced the servo (I have the coolest girl!) and recorded a test hover last night:
This heli is ready to fly, right out of the box!
Here is a pic of gf in the operating room, with the patient on the table :-)
Give this happy little heli a new home
