I just think that you would be hard pressed to find another heli manufactured out there that is as easily accessible for parts, as good a warranty and customer service and every one of them is perfect out of the box.
Of course if you do, I would love to check it out.

I bought all of my HH heli's and other products expecting they would function as is and if not would be immediately rectified. That is why I have purchased so many HH products and will continue to do so. I have purchased other name brands that had issues and the companies didnt do anything so my only option was to buy more parts.


I agree people will be very hard pressed to find another manufacturer out there that has the crazy good warranty and customer service as HH does

Personally I have been completely content with all of my 130x's out of the box

Actually I have no idea where that post title came from doesn't show on my edit page. As far as map being ridiculous it is what it is.

well very odd then a well placed accident pretty funny you can change titles by going to advanced edit

I know MAP is what it is, as I said it is only my opinion which sometimes doesnt carry any weight at all. I do think even with a high MAP HH is an overall stellar company and I have happily given them thousands of dollars. Well I am off to see if i can break one of my 130's flying inside my house

Have fun. Thanks for the advanced edit tip although I still have no idea how the so called " well placed accident" ( your words) got there.

Actually no, I did not read your PM. I am sick and tired of you and your trolling and I don't care what you have to say. You pick on people for little tiny BS things that don't matter and that's all you ever do. I know you're probably getting all wet because I responded here, but this is the last time. You don't exist anymore.

Sorry, but you falsely claiming (i.e. flat out lying) that Blade actually stated in the manual that one of the major problems with this heli for a great many people is normal and nothing to worry about is not a "tiny little BS thing"...and you know it...

It is in "settings and options" in your control panel.

I never add anyone to my ignore list my thought is everyone eventually gives some helpful advice at one point or another. Even myself once in a new moon i have one thing useful to say

I just flew my hp08 130x inside much better with higher ceiling compared to my office. My office I almost put a few holes in the ceiling tiles. I want/need to get an Airwolf fuse for flying inside

Has anyone tried a Darth fus on theirs?

I was just wondering because I've seen reports where HH required someone to go through the hobby shop where they purchased something first (either locally or on-line). Basically, HH wouldn't deal with the customer directly and they can tell if it's something wasn't purchased directly from them.
Yes,, the LHS replaced the parts, and sent the bad ones back for me. It was my birthday too, but I think he would have done it anyways. He did it for me on an mCPX board a long time ago too.

Good job on your LHS. Wish there more like that. Or even one around here. He actually sent the bad parts back? I've never had Horizon ask me to return any parts. They just replaced them. Same as you, they also replaced a control board once for me, too.

Although the tail rotor is on the wrong side, I'd love to have just a plain old B206 Jet Ranger fuse for my 130 X.

My nano had a bad feathering shaft out of the box and my LHS replaced the shaft. That's one of the reasons I support my LHS.
