Help!
please advise me on this heli im about to buy off a guy here on rc groups

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=536098

looks like a good deal to me, and the heli looks like a solid platform. I think ill get the paypal to him tomorrow, but I need to know the pros and cons of this heli...especially because Ive not heard much about it.

That motor is a hacker c50 13xl and im wondering why its grey and not red. Also it seems the motor is overkill, but im sure it will work outstandingly

Are the parts for this heli available incase I crash?
Are there any issues with the heli itself?

Please advise me here...you can pm me with any confidential info or just mention it here

Thanks in advance
Marc

Personally I think that both the motor and ESC are very poor choices see if he will sell it without them.

iirc, older hacker esc's were notorious for having a terrible governor mode...and also for burning up in flight. maybe they've improved.
