It's almost worth it for the AR7200BX alone.

The spares are so expensive for the 300x it makes sense to buy the complete heli instead.

Even more so when you get the price I just paid This was my best purchase price of the 300x yet, I paid not much over ar7200bx pricing with an extra battery.

Still kind of slow, but probably would work ok.

Thanks for posting the pics. I am loving this heli myself. Flown fantastic right out of the box for me and while I am certainly NO 3D flyer, I found it very stable and easy to flip and am now fairly comfortable with inverted HOVER when I am WAY up there and there is not too much wind.

Good first non-micro 3D ship.

Happy flying,

Marlin
Thank you so much guys. I appreciate the kind words. I understand that not all styles can please everyone. I just like to do something original, at least to me. There sure were some responses that were out of the character of this wonderful community. Happy flying!

I also thought it looked great. Excellent job! Never would have thought a Sharpie paint job could look that good.

Well that's simple then, (servo programming). apart from fast digital being preferred, any brands? Anything that doesn't work with it??? I don't wish to put cheap s&$# back in, but I'd also like to be reasonable with price. (I run Savox in my race cars, good value for money, and no faults).

And wow, 3x 300x's. My Mrs would shoot me, even if I got another one for $50 lol...

I tried to move up to it and see if anything was working, but it would turn on before I could see. I would lift up again and hover and with in a minite it would do it again. The next battery it ran fine for the entire battery. 3rd battery it did it again 2 times. I recharged the battery that it ran fine on and tried again and it stopped just like the other times. Thats when I sent it in. I just got it back in, but I don't know if I;m going to fly it Know. I have my 130X flying soo good and it's the perfect size for the frount yard.

Well, after letting the 300x sit for awhile, (lots of working heli's to play with) I tried it again and it looks like I'll have to send this to HH. What a pain in the a$$. The real value in the heli, and one of the main reasons I bought it was the ar7200bx. Now it looks like that is the problem... I don't know that I'll trust this one again.

I wish I never bought this thing.

Ya, one nice thing about heli`s is they are easy to hide compared to planes.

I`m guessing indoorheli is not married

On the 3, I havent had them all at once, I just keep buying and selling. Just when I think I am done with the 300x a good deal comes along that I cant pass up. I try to keep under 5'ish heli's ..at home. I was over my limit so I just sold a few heli's last week. Good timing too, I have a goblin coming at the beginning of next week

Nice skills for the little fella!!
My two enjoy rc also, (7&3) they only have the little 3ch scouts though lol. eldest get's a good hover going, so that msrx is his next logical upgrade (was going to be my old msr but bit's are getting harder to buy).

I've just started selling some of my gear also, but I'm up to 6 heli's 1 plane (micro polecat) 6 car's (4 race ready 2 bashers) 3 boats and another plane being built now (foam funtana)...

That's my collection, the kids have a bunch also...

Oh, and thanks for the servo link, subscribed and will have a good read.

Ok, I think this is going to be my next Heli. Had a used mCPX, sold it, got the Nano and now need something bigger for outdoors. Been following this one for a long while, watched tons of videos. Looks like the ticket. I hope the Tax Man is generous again this year.....



I have three 3S 1000 30C Glaciers and three 3S 1800 25C Zippy Compacts. Would either of these
work in the 300X and still balance ok?
