Your two last sentences seem to contradict each other. Did you mean to say you sold your mSRx?

I chalked that up to being a fixed pitch heli. I know what you mean (I think)... Coming out of a banked turn it wants to push back against the turn so you have to sort of feather the controls to fly with any sort of accuracy. This is very different from how CP helis behave and therefor can breather frustrating to those (including myself) that want something that flies like a CP heli.

I'd be interested in seeing something the size of the mSRx with the same tame head speed but in a CP setup for fun indoor flying. Is this possible? I do not know... But I'd buy them as soon as they hit the shelves.

I think that's what he meant...

I keep my mSR X and six Hyperion 160 mAh batteries on my office (home) desk at all times. I charge them and fly it all the time in my small room (yes, it's completely controllable with left AND right turns) and do runs through the house, including outside in the back yard. It's a great indoor FBL FP heli and a very good replacement for the old mSR. I predict the mSR X will be a gold standard for FBL indoor helis for a very long time...with people that can fly them...

As did a huge percentage of msrx owners but HH never admitted a fault and kept on selling as many as they could even with it's "quirky" behavior and horribly short life span motors. Most all of their products (in my opinion and I'm sure many, many others as well) fall short and don't live up to all the hype they propagate is basically all I was trying to convey. Was also my 666th post and the devil might have been possessing my tired from working with idiots all day today body.

Okay, you hate HH. We get it. Quit posting in a HH product thread. GO AWAY.

Really? Honestly? So they are one of the market leaders in this industry because You and "many, many others" think their products suck and fall short of the mark?

They sell a TON of product for a good reason. Now are they the best of the best with all of their offerings? Not even close. But they are better than good enough and there are few that can match their quality and price combo. They bring an awful lot to the table.

Having said that... Do I go to them for everything? Nope. But I recognize and appreciate them for what they are.

I'm not trying to attack you by the way. You're certainly entitled to your opinion...

Can't tell, either... Probably some weirdo heli that won't bind to anything except a sub-par proprietary TX ...

Valid points. I might even try out the "v2" 130x eventually. I just got a little excited about it and was let down by all the negative reviews rolling in.

Proprietary Walkera sub-standard TX.

Parts availability at your LHS for that Walkera bird? On-line shipping to your door in 2-3 days from Horizon or a multitude of other heli retailers? Don't think so...
