The XRB Sr is amazing. I've flown a few of them and each and everyone one out of the box hovered hands off. We used the lighter paddles and it was so much more agile and even more fun to fly. I wish they offered carbon blades for it so that it will be able to handle wind a little better. Oh yea, check out Zooms Heli, they had a bunch of them the other day, but they are selling like hotcakes. I think they only have about 2 left now.

If it's stronger blades you want laminate them in strapping tape. I tried the clear plastic and the strapping. The clear is holding up after several incidents on my tethered conversion unit and the strapping tape ones are alot stiffer. Just cut the tape log so you can hold it and lay it on the blade and fold it over the leading edge and back. Press it into place with your fingers and walla tougher blades. The MRC rep even recommended using scotch tape on the leading edge to stiffen them and make them stronger but laminating them works even better. They're still soft enough not to hurt anything too

The Blades supplied with my XRB wireless already have the leading edge wrapped with tape.

Avoid that megatech product. If I hadn't read the reviews of the Hirobo line and heard how nice it was, I would have compared the House Fly to it because they "look" exactly the same.

Our local Hobby town got a couple in when I was there last time. We broke open the box because I've been telling him how everyone has a blast with the Hirobo. This House Fly is a piece of crap. Do not get one.

LHS owner tried for two days to get one of the three machines he opened flying (megatech something) and could not.

He flies them all and can even fly the little bastages that just agravate me.

He is sending them all back!

Stay away from these. Get the real deal. Get the Hirobo!
