THere are two build threads with some flight test info, use the "search this forum" function at the top right in the blue horizontal bar for REVO, that will keep you going for a while.

I have one, but haven't had much opportunity to fly it due to winter weather. I hovers great in the garage and I've flown it some in the front yard. Flys much like my Shogun, which is to say very stable and easy to fly. Mechanically, I like it better than the Shogun. Don't know yet how the tail gear drive will hold up.

A great buy at $69!!

Things came together for a couple of good flights today...got off work early with light winds and warmer day. For the first time I really had a chance to get into some fast forward flight with tight turns and hovering. Very nice flying heli. I'm still a heli noob so don't get into loops and rolls, but really like the way it handles otherwise.

Got 13+ min with a 2100 pack, and 10+ with an 1800.

Don't let the low price fools you. It is a very decent heli. Since I got it, I left my X-400 on the shelf. Too expensive to maintain compare with the REVO.
