Well IB, thats all I could find under (Air Hogs Apache) other than the havoc, if you can find a pic, that would take all the guess work out of this?????
Just a regular reflex? But with a different body?

What he also DID say it was a "NEW" coaxial reflex 3ch heli.
DID he mention what's "NEW" about it? Can anyone mention what's different about it? Or is this thread just going to be quote\unquotes for the entire first page?
Anyways, we all know about 3ch heli's. Here's one for $39, probably be just as good, and almost half the price.

I snagged one a couple of days ago. (no time to write a detailed review)

It's definitely not like the Old Reflex/Helix models !

So, I had to add it to my collection.

New AH-64 model has trim dials on it's TX,
Also charges from the TX.

This one is IR control not RF

L: 180mm (7in.)

Rotors: 160mm (6.25in)
each rotor 1 piece(no pivoting blades)

Tail rotor: 30mm

AUW: 24.4g

Only had time for 1 quick test flight so far.

Not bad...easy to trim...quite stable.

Yea, that's not even close to a reflex (with an apache body), don't know where anyone got that idea?

I bet a regular reflex is better. This one is IR and charges from the controller, so you'll drain batts faster.

i am willing to bet this one is much better considering how much the first reflex sucked...i mean if you can make this one go where you want it to then it already beats the original 100X over :P
