Help!

Can anyone tell me what heli this is?


I've been trying to figure out what heli this is, it's all plastic, has a brushless main, and a belted tail? I'm having trouble figuring it out, it has the wrong landing gear on it, is running a telebee gyro any help would be greatly appreciated.

They suck that bad huh, it was given to me so I have nothing in it, lol.
Everything is there just no tx, tail servo has some stripped gears.

It isnt that bad and they are very cheap.

It is a good starter that you dont have to worry about crashing, even more so if it was free.

On servos most micro servos will work for that heli.

fyi, the firefox 200 is a plastic, clone version of the well known heli gaui 200

my favorite





and yeah, the firefox is not that bad, compare to its price.
if you want it perfect, buy the all metal gaui 200, you wont regret it

I have a trex 250,450,500,
So being a starter heli isn't the thing, and 150-200 for a heli that I already have basically, I know metal is usually better, I just like building and working on heli's, so I just need to find a tail servo, and a set of blades change out the receiver. Are these 2s heli's or can I run 3s I have several batts for the ole 250 I could use.

You can run 3s but would need a 10T pinion. It should have a 15T for 2s. I'd actually try to keep it as light as possible. Flightpower 800mah 20C short packs are a cheap decent pack that is pretty light. Hear bad things on the Nano 850's and 1000's...poor cycle life.

They're not bad. See if you can pick up a cheap Gaui 200 head...someone may have gone flybarless. The stock head is ok but breaks balls, and grips pretty easy.

For tail, if the gyro is a digital 302AD (from memory)...
go Hyp ds09
Hyp ds11
Jr290g.

Cyclics...I'd probably go with Blue Arrow D05010Mg (hobbyking). If they fit the openings they're about the best you can find cheap without compromising on function. They're good little servos.

Right now, I just need to find a tail servo and a batt, I fly my 500, and 250 a lot, so this would be just to play around with, I'm just wanting to get it in the air, so I need to find a tail servo, battery and pair of 200mm blades.

Apart from Elemodel, is there any other place where to find spare parts for the Firefox? Thanks
