well the helicopter here would cost 99€ (around 125$) BNF, without TX, since I already have the DX6i. And since the DX6i has a sh*tload of heli configuration stuff I can't even spell yet, I hope that it helps me on taming down the speed of this thing (already read elsewhere that this thing is fast). Spareparts I have to check my LHS' prices. But if the boom breaks I would not hesitate to glue it back on myself - is there any problem with that? I consider myself an intermediate in repairs and soldering, how much can be done by myself?
Also, how much power does this helicopter have? is it possible for the helicopter to lift around 20g (my keychain camera)?
That would surely look cool to make videos of the heli flying through my bedroom ^^
How good is the auto-stabilization of this thing? I read it has a gyro built in, is it worth anything?
And final question: Is there an alternative helicopter in that segment (very small, I only tend to fly that thing indoors) that you would recommend over this thing?
My requirements are:
Single rotor (I just hate the look of co-axials)
Rotor no bigger than 25cm
If you want to go single rotor there is the MSR. It is just as big but I don't know how much power it has but it has about the same same a MCX and it costs around $100 BNF.
