Here is a review I helped my LHS make. It is the second one of a weekly series we are doing.

The Goblin 500 went down and in the end I determined it was the Talon 90. Then the 550X went down and I think a motor wire came loose, but I still have to check the logs on the CC Edge HV 80 to make a final call on that. My friend Bob thinks that is it the Ikon Flybarless system because that was the only item that I used from the Goblin and on the 550 I had a BEC installed. I have a 600 X kit (yes, the one for sale on RCGroups) and since I got the combo kit, I would be using the Beast X instead. So last night while talking to my daughter I nudged the box with my foot and mentioned no one was interested in buying it. She was surprised that I was selling it and then said I should build it because I told her never to give up. I love my kids. If it doesn't sell by Saturday, I am going to build it and this time all the parts are new and known to be reliable. Plus a lot of parts from the broken 550X, like the head and tail cage, will fit it because they are basically the same.

Planes are fun, but for me, nothing beats flying a heli. I'm almost at the point where I don't need to think about flying much. I have taken apart and rebuilt everything from the Nano CP X to a few 450's I have , but breaking the 500 size barrier has eluded me. hopefully the 600x will be the one. If not, there is always the 680's, 700's and bigger to try. If at first you don't succeed, go bigger!
