there will never be a perfect heli. there is always something better that comes out as soon as you get something. thats how the world of rc works.

No I turned him down on it, it's an older model and receivers are too pricey for me. I don't need that to fly DLG also. He said no offense taken. He's not even the original owner of it. And one of the switches is broken.

Same thing with GoPros, and Apple gear... LOL always something to upgrade to!

...but that's what I kind of love about this hobby, there's always something different to try/build/fly/experiment with!

So painfully true with Apple.

I can't emphasize that enough.

Holy crap I'm going through a deal to get the Futaba 8FG Super for the same price as the 8J + spare RX. We'll see if I can grab it. But I only have $50 in PayPal... plus $190 coming in for only $260... need an extra $90 or so! Hmmmm...

Yeah well that's how it goes with micro, tiny little electronics. They're extremely fickle. Mine had less issues but still was a pain at some times.

I have had more problems with trees than with electronics.

Although, the tail rotor motor burnt out a lot.
I fixed the tail boom problem by putting heat shrink in the boom.

Or you could just upgrade to the solid CF boom, that's what I did!
