Dodger, I suggest you look at the video before you comment. Sure, I can't fly it backwards inverted like my Hornet2 outside, but flying low along the floor and then popping up to barely clear the couch before hitting the deck again like an attack helicopter, or doing backward circuits with the XRB in a small room with walls to hit gives quite a rush too....
Damn right!!!! Flying indoors can be a total rush!

I just picked one up today and just got done putting in a couple of flights in the garage. How many of the rest of you can say they were flying at 10:00 (pacific) at night?????

This thing is totally sweeeeeeeeetttt!!!

I've flown both Lama's ( a friend has one) and this thing seems to handle about the same - except you can really fly around and not worry about the stupid cord getting in the way. The power feels about the same.

I always said that if they ever came out with a wireless XRB I'd buy one (after crashing my friends because of the stupid cord a couple of times!) So I bought one and I love it!!!
skitzo cat in the house.
Aren't all freaking cats skitzo????????? There's gonna be a lot of cat chasing in this house considering there's now five of the damn things!!! Freakin cats.

It should be able to take some abuse. The blades are foam and designed to break so nothing else does. It comes with like four sets, and replacements sets are really cheap.

smiling like a fool!

Family out of the house..., living room ALL to myself.... Out came the XRB!!! My white couches turned into snow covered mountains. The XRBs job, to fly fast and low over the mountains while avoiding heavy fire to pickup the wounded on the other side.... Needless to say, I clipped the couches a couple of times and was surpised to find no damage to the foam blades. That ment that after folding them back out, it was back into the air to save more lives!! Of course, a couple times the XRB took enemy fire which would cause continous piros, but I was able to do emergency landings everytime! (Now if I could only figure out a way to put a smoke system on there to make it look more real when I get "shot down"....)

Man I wish I could charge the battery faster. May have to buy a second battery

I will have to ask my LHS to order me some. They just slide under the fuse. After you plug it in, make sure it is all the way forward. If when you take off the heli leans backwards, it means the battery isn't all the way forward.

I didn't hit hard and I killed the throttle as soon as I started to hit the "mountain." Had I gone into it full bore I probably would have needed new blades....

If one of you guys could/would measure the pack, we could compare to the 700 mah 2C Lipos that Great Planes distributes. The measurements are on the web. Kokam has some too. The current Tower price for the Electrifly ones are just a little over $20 a pack. That won't kill anyone's budget.

Gotta remember to let the motors cool a little b/t flights, though.

What is weird about the pack is that it has three wires coming out of it. I will take a pic tomorrow.

Battery pack wires

I took the volt meter to the pack this morning. I got 8.2V off the outter two wires, and 4.1V if I go off an outter and middle wire. They must be running the radio gear off of one cell, and the motors off of both.

Looks like a little rewiring of a standard lipo pack would be in order. Shouldn't be beyond the capability of most folks, though.

Any way to convert the tethered version?

I have a small futaba 4ch Rx, LiPo cell and the tethered version of the Lama. Is there any way to cut off the cord and put the Rx and the LiPo pack into the heli?

That would be a perfect solution...

There is an entire thread on the conversion at rcgroups.com. I sounds like a lot of work. Not worth it IMHO, plus the new SR version has a longer main mast to reduce/eliminate blade strikes.
