On my second v911 looking for something larger

I am enjoying the 911 and like modifying it with lights etc. I would like to get something a little larger and still be inexpensive like the 911. (It's kind of unbelievable to be able to by a BMF for $25) I looked at the Blade SR120 but the price is prohibitive and certainly would deter tinkering with it. Parts for it are rather expensive too. So with all that said, what does everyone else have as a 4 channel fixed pitch big brother to the 911 ? Thanks much.

heres a heli

This heli is about the same size as the 120 sr. Parts are a little cheaper. the good thing about the 120 sr is that support is great and parts are availible in a lot of places.

hopr this helped

Thanks!!! I will check it out. Did you ever fly it, if so, what did you think?

Some of the things I don't like about the 911 when using advance mode, is how it rocks back and forth, for lack of a better term when stopping. It tends to nose dive when accelerating forward. Sometimes it just slide sideways out of the sky and it doesn't seem to respond to inputs. Maybe I simply am not good enough. Do you think the Solo Pro would do the same?

Ive flown the 120sr and it is amazing for a noob. my friend had one and i had never flown helis in my life. he got me hooked. I got a cp before him. read about the sp 3328 . im pretty sure its good. at want point i was thinking of getting one as a trainer and i might get a ftr (futaba transmitter ready---- fhss) version when i get my 8j. read some reviews.

hope this helped

Hi, I agree with the solopro 328 as a big v911 or a blade 120sr alternative. My v911 is raggedy. Im about to get a 120sr. After I learn the 3D flight on the simulator I'll move to a blade 450x.
