Hi all, I'm going to purchase a new heli. I've beat my 130 to near death but it is still flying somehow. If either of the heli's I've mentioned are the half of what the 130 was for taking abuse I wont be disappointed in either. I would like some input on my decision. I like things on one and dislike thing on the other and vise a versa. How well do they handle a crash? Thanks Lenny

Thats gonna require parts!!!

I own both and will always pick the 230s, because I think it flys better. I have done more damage to my 180, but that has more to do with the fact I have crashed it more. If I had to guess, I think I have about the same number of hours on both.

The 230s, hands down. I taught my grandson how to fly on that - so you can really say that it's taken a HUGE beating! It's still going strong.

It's so ridiculously easy to fly that I'll recommend it to anyone. Well, that is unless you're looking for a challenge. Then I'd say the 230s is probably not for you.

Been flying for over 20 years. An absolute RC Helicopter enthusiast!

That depends on the flying mode. I have seen one of our better pilots fly it just like his Chronos. Well, OK it sounds a LOT different and no overspeeds or autos. If your definition of "auto" is that you cut the motor and reach the ground without damage, then it can do that too.

Tail motor is so far, so good. The tail rotor blades are another matter. The smallest thing will bend them. If you can bend it back so there is no vibration, fine, but that is unlikely. Good idea to keep a few spares.
