This heli looks tough enough for a novice to crash enough to learn how to fly it.
Wonder if we'll get a 30gm FBL FP?

Why not Bill - A genius FP wonder if that would come with a 4 channel Devo Radio

I am afraid it is a switch on the Rx.

Thats a shame Darryl - If they made it remote it would be better for the novice - and that is what this heli should be aimed at.

Oh, I hate you for posting this. That is the craziest thing I have seen Now I'm going to want one I have never seen something like that. It sounds bad ass, and is fast too How stable is it, and how hard is it to fly compared to a regular heli?

Quads are very stable and can be insanely fast. Pretty easy to fly...maybe a little harder than a coax. Rudder is slow and orientation can be tough.

Okay, I give up. What the hell is a 6 axis gyro?

A 3 axis gyro stabilizes left/right (aileron), forward/backward (elevator) and rotation (rudder). What do these extra three stabilize? The only thing I can think of would be up/down (pitch).

Or are they just oriented in such a way that they make the normal 3 axis more stable (perhaps by being diagonal?)? I just can't think of what the extra 3 axis do.

Edit: The internet seems to imply that a 6 axis system is more likely to be 3 gyros and 3 accelerometers, which means it could counteract unintentional rotation *and* linear movement. The name is deceptive.

i must say that this heli is very intriguing indeed; Walkera has upped the anti for Blade, Nine Eagles and Align in this micro category.

any ideas on price for RTF with the TX ashiano used?
