I hope you guys have better luck with it than I had. I tried one about a month ago, never worked right consistently, and not very responsive when it did. (The throttle would suddenly cut off for no apparent reason; aside from the defect, the yaw control is lousy.) Good thing was I ordered from Amazon, and returning it was hassle-free.

Syma S800G 4-ch for $29.99 shipped:: http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-Sy...l-p-42524.html

A few pages ago, someone mentioned the title of this thread is somewhat dated. I think they're right; I see more and more four-channel micro-copters dropping under the thirty-dollar mark.
The "can't pass" price of S107G's (and clones) seems to hang tight at $19.99 ~ $21.00,.. but the 4-ch twistys are certainly dropping.

A couple of 4 channels under $42. The orange one seems to have a magnetically operated swash like the HCW 537 (based on a customer uploaded photo), that didn't worked too well for me. The silver one has been around for a long time, but I have not seen it for under $40.

As of today I agree with you 100%! At least Amazon, Newegg, Nitro-Planes, et-all make sure everything is double-boxed.

I've even seen some sellers suggest ordering two or more helis to avoid shipping damage.

I guess slipping two boxes into a baggy back to back and taping it all up provides more crush space than one alone.

Looks good, except it has the same swash mechanism as the 537, which didn't worked too well. On the bright side, it could double as desktop art deco.
