new 3-ch co-ax apache!

http://hobbytron.com/ApacheX3AH64DRTFRCHelicopter.html

This one looks pretty funky, its like a re-bodied DFK/bladerunner (co-ax heli with tail rotor for forward/back) wonder how good the tail rotor will do tho...

Let me start by saying never buy anything from hobbytron. Second, do not believe that it is really a 3 channel. I bought a case of "3 channel" helis from them with a bunch of friends and what we got was a bunch of crappy 2 channel helis that barely flew. The transmitter seems to have a third channel but it is not used which is how they can say it is a 3 channel. I emailed them many times over the course of several weeks and they never even bothered to reply. I filed a complaint against them with the BBB. All of the helis we bought are now junk and will not fly at all.

ooh... seems you you got a rough deal there. which 3-ch heli? dragonfly type? does have a 3rd channel, its just ineffective. swapping a picooz tail rotor fixes that right up! yea, one motor on mine died so its grounded.

Thats the one we got. The only control you have is up/down and tail rotor. I have absolutely no idea what they think the third channel is.
