if you want smaller than a lama, look at some of the walkera helis.

Have you tried looking at the blade MCX or the lama 2-1?

I have looked at the Blade MCX and compared to the construction of these birds and the abuse they can take - I do not think they are anywhere near the durability and quality.

Do you mean the MCX is not near the quality of the Syma or the Syma is not near the quality of the MCX? I have to agree in the fact that I like the look and the feel of the Syma heli over my MCX and the MCX feels quite flimsy, but the thing really is pretty much indestructible. I was scared to even touch it at first, but now after owning one and having many, many, many run ins with the walls, tables etc. I have yet to brake anything (other than a head rotor which was a $4 replacement and that was after a hard hit to a wall and 20 foot drop to the floor. Not saying it's the best, because I haven't owned any other 4 channel micro heli's but I definitely have enjoyed it. Once you fly one it will be very hard to go back to one of these more toyish models.

I meant that the Syma's seemed much more sturdy than the MCX I have looked at. I mean the Syma's are very rigid and I've seen my son hit the ceiling and then come crashing down and they don't even miss a beat. The MCX can't even hold itself up on the skids they are so flexible. My axe ez is the same way, it's not very durable and seems very 'soft' - it can barely hold itself up. I wouldn't consider the axe ez 'high quality' though. I don't want to consider these syma birds 'high quality' either but they sure seem to fit that definition. I am not used to seeing something with this level of fit and finish come from China. I will say that of the 4 I have only one TX has good feeling mechanics - only one seems to be put together well. All of the birds however are nearly perfect. It's a good thing they are all on the same frequency - I only use the one TX for the two I have flying now (the other is spare).

I know the MCX is a well regarded but I was very unsure of its durability. I know parts are cheap but I don't want to let my son play with it and then have to go get parts every time he does.

Check the flybar and make sure it is not screwed down to tight. 90% of all TBE is caused by the flybar being too tight or too loose.
