pricey but cool. It would be good to see some video so we can determine how stable and responsive it is.

looks pretty stable in the video. though i doubt its any easier to control than a standard size heli (my thumbs never proved to be willing or able on the dragonfly i had )

it also looks to end up being pricey after all the equipment is there. just the empty kit is 199, then the mixer is 85, the servos are 59 each so thats another 120 so thats 405 so far and it still doesn't have a gyro in that quote. i would still get one if i could scrape up the funds. oarg i would need a tx & rx too so thats another 200 605!! on second thought..... i'll have to wait for prices to drop.

I doubt prices will drop for this one. It would be nice to see some reviews. Pre-ordering seems a bit like Russian Roulette to me. I find the website a bit dodgy because there is no background information about the company.

Hi All,

I think this may be a MIA product, there was a reference on it before about a "PalmSize" heli.

I guess the best thing is to see if some of the mainstream shops start selling it.

It does look very nice though

Cheers

It does look like a MIA product but the phone number points to address in Saint Augustine, FL not Mesa AZ and the name for the number is not Mario
