An on topic answer to that, I guess Air Hogs needed to free up some garbage off their shelves and put it on Wallyworlds and decided to charge $70 for it.

Exactly, but there is always that ??? if we're going to get what we buy off of e-bay. But to stay on point, there are identical ones out there, IR, or RF for $40~$50 range.

Yes it is, I like it very much.
I personally do not mind use of slang, but for your own protection from "others hurt feelings" reporting you, may want to edit your post?
Just a heads up is all, no sarcasm intended.

Thats cool and all I just dont like IR that much, too many things can interfere with the radio's performance, especially when flying outside. I cant get more than 15' range with my havoc or firefly.

Hey, (you know who), stop PM'ing me. Or if your going to do so, man up and chunk the ignore option. Seeing how noone can reply ones PM's while on ignore, I'll answer the statement here. Asked why I edited those posts, well lets see, I had (15) warnings, and now (3) points. To remove the warnings, must edit the posts. (No brainer there)
This is a Rant thread about these helis, yours is whatever. Now kindly stop sending me PM's if your going to ignore me, than do so.

Very good, very good indeed.

Bottom line is it does look cool!

But is it IR or R/C?

What do you mean? Go from RC to IR? Those are both the same thing. Did you mean RF to IR? Seeming how they are both RC, just different setups.

There is no change to the thread, just posting "comparisons" is all. And its only $30.

While your on this site, check out the reviews on it. 8 out of 10 shown were more than satisfied with it. Very good percentage rating IMO.

Why rip him a new one for that?

In refference to RC/IR I'm sure he means "Radio Control" and Ir "Infrared Control"

Radio =/= Infrared.


Edit: On topic. If it were closer to 30-35 I'd give it a try, but $70 bucks for that? That'd be air hogs ripping ME a new one.
