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.
