I think E-flite is on the SR because it was designed before the name change took place. Notice how this new heli and the mCX2 have E-flite nowhere to be seen minus the batteries which are used in their planes.

Looks great! I hope that the next one will be a CP micro in this size.

They have replaced mine five times. I was also nice and pleasant on the phone, and I also gave them a boat load of design suggestions.

It certainly appears that they are transitioning the Blade line to just be known as "Blade" and no longer including the E-flite name on their new products. Mike H

I bought the MSR specifically for its size as-is, although it might of been a tough decision at point of purchase with both to choose from. Being that the MSR got me into full CP helis, and I can build another metal 450 for the same price (let alone a even basic 500 clone), I just don't have a 'niche' for it to fill. Mine has been great, has some cool mods, and still gets just as much flight time now as it did nearly a year ago, my micro-heli FP slot in the hangar is filled indefinitely. Not to mention the growing number of battery-comparable micro planes still makes it a hero for new buyers. First thing I learned getting out of gas and into electrics, is get at least three aircraft flying using the same battery format before looking for something 'new'. I look at the price of an SR120 at $250-heli plus new batteries...

Being the MSR is such a success HERE, the enthusiasm may not be as high, but I do see it as a nice little bird to have out there on the market. Looks pretty darn cool to me.

I WOULD however, take an MSR sized canopy/tail set in yellow, tyvm, that would stoke me more then the SR120, NEW CANOPY! was the first thing I thought opening the thread

I like the idea they scaled up the MSR into a larger version. Not bad at all.
Now they only need to make a version larger than the 120 version maybe a 240. Then we'd have a outdoor version of a MSR.
Actually, I might pony up for something like that (and the batteries) over the 120 bird. I love CP and FP for their own quirks, stress levels, and challenges, but the 120 is not large enough, yet not small enough.

Again, at $13! for a new canopy for an MSR, just releasing yellow ones would probably net the same profit as the entire SR120 program

From a performance standpoint the higher tail rotor means that it is closer to the height of the rotor disk so it won't make the heli lean as much from the thrust of the tail blades.

Also if this is a scaled up MSR, one of the characteristics that made that heli stable is the height the rotor head sits from the majority of the weight in the heli. Longer shaft makes for a better pendulum effect for stability. So the tail rotor has to go upward to match a "normal-ish" height ratio or else it would have greater purchase to lean the heli.

Eh.. not intreasted at ALL. Same over priced crappy helicopters, with crappy electronics, and expensive parts. I'd rather buy a walkera for less money, get a better transmitter, better helicopter with better electronics (to include a 3 axis gyro)..

Even If I was to ignore the fact that this POS is made by Horizon/e-flite/blade (who are all the exact same people, and the exact same company); This is what they have been developing? A giant expensive mSR? Where is the mCP that people have been asking for? Why are they making new helicopters when they have yet to solve the SR's problems?

Anyway.. I will never by another e-flite/blade product, they are complete crap. moving on..

I second that. Electronics, mechanics, crap.

If you suck blame the heli.

Wow, a Quark SRB size SR/Msr. Maybe this explains Hirobo's recent price drop of their FP heli - used to sell for around $350, now around $250, under $200 with recent Father's day specials.

If so then "Blade" needs to quickly come out with a Quark SRB size CP heli and get Hirobo to lower the price of their Quark SRB SG down from $800

I wonder if this can handle outdoor winds in stock format.

Wow they're a lot of EFlite haters on here.

Do you people really think that Walkera is any better?

All these companies are in it to make money; the all employ the same business tactics.

I would buy that in a heartbeat, but...

The Quark is its size equivalent, and I'm sure a much better helicopter.

Quit Naysaying, this is a great idea. CP is not for everybody and this looks like the perfect gym/backyard heli. My MSR is definitely not outdoor-friendly, So go E-Flite!!!
