If you want to fly upside down then you will have to rule out the v3 humming bird, its fixed pitch. Buy the aerobatic kit for the blade and a lipo battery and a good lipo charger.

Blade cp $220
aerobatic kit $30
Lipo battery $40
Lipo Charger $100

Total $390

There is the cheapest that you will be able to fly upside down. However if you are new to helis then you will be fine with either as it takes at least a good year for the average pilot to get to the point of flying upside down. If you are already flying 3d then don't settle for less than the blade. Good luck.

Also dont rule out the Trex. Great heli but it costs as much as a raptor.

CP2!!

You can get a E-Sky Honeybee CP2, which is basically the same heli as the blade, except it has a few improvements (better head, acrobatics kit stuff already installed, and lipo). It will go upside down stock.

Here is a link, you can get it for $188. I would recommend getting heat sinks for both motors.

Blade is good all around bird HB seems to offer more options on some of their heli like the 3d pro.

Thanks, Mondell

Go CP2 - you can buy two for the price of a similar Blade CP outfit.

Check out the hummingbird elite pro 3D if you want something 3D. Its much more of a 3D flyer than the Blade CP but if you want something begginers either chose the blade cp or like the others said, which is a much better deal, the CP2. You would get a lot more for your money

Here are some pics of it, looks nice to me:

Hey

Put in another vote for Esky Honey Bee CP 2. Sorry Horizon!
Try heli-fever.com.
You just need to be prepared to order all of your parts online unless you're lucky enough to live near one of the rare North American dealers of Esky parts.

Regards

If we're going to discuss Super 3leet Micro Helis - don't forget the La-Heli MaxiR SE

http://www.icare-rc.com/maxir.htm

http://www.maxir.logoheli.com/


It may be the pinnacle of Micro helis... The SE looks all business.

A 4-BLADED MICRO HELI IS COMING !!!!
