Hummingbird RTF is based on the Hummingbird V3. The V3 is a Fixed Pitch (FP) bird. It can't fly inverted.

The Blade CP is a Collective Pitch (CP) bird which in theory it can be fly up side down. In order to do it you need the 3D upgrade package. But even with that package I don't know how well it works.

If this is your first bird (RC Helicopter) I recommend the Hummingbird RTF because it's cheaper and after a crash it's much easier to repair.

The Blade is also a good bird. IMO it's a "little" too much as a first bird.

3D Pro? I have only "1D" under my belt, what am I going to do with "3D"?

I am sorry, just saw your gallery with all those nice big birds.

Actually if you are flipping those big guys you should buy a better E-bird than the Blade CP.

Maybe a 3D Pro or a T-Rex.

he's probably a little busy for the holidays. but, i'd give wes at modefos a call. just tell him what you want and he'll build it, test fly it, send it right to your door.

there are no cheap RTF micros that fly hard 3d like you want. its still 'you get what you pay for' in the hobby. all the cheapo RTFs are entry level, learning to hover type helis. to get one you can toss around is gonna run you in the neighborhood of $500-$900. (just 'cause its smaller doesnt mean its cheaper--to an extent it's the opposite; more expensive to get the tight tolerances needed for such tiny parts to perform)

most micros actually need significant upgrades to be able to 3d. from what i've read on other boards as well as this one is the laheli maxir will 3d hard right out of the box.

aside from that, you might be looking at going a size larger to the minis like the TREX XL which i've seen perform very well stock.

if it ain't broke, break it.

A T-Rex RTF less Tx or a Shogun true RTF

Also they will build any heli RTF for you.

Have fun!

Well said Cuda. Maybe we should recommend a WALKERA. They all "3D" "RTF"

What do you think?

Give the MAxiR a try. It is probably the most capable 3d micro around.

Check out http://www.maxir.logoheli.com/index.htm for more.

This MAxiR looks like a ESky copy. Oh I am sorry, must be the other way around.

Voyager, This is a piece of fancy hardware you got here. This is true bling all the way. Way Cool! Just wondering do you use it when flying on a SIM?

Theres a video of the Rex doing 3d with a 320 motor, and
all stock head. Real extreme and can't make an evaluation
since I haven't seen a Rex yet, other than one
that had all carbon and metal head parts that one
of the guys has.
I am going to try a stock one since I'm not into 3d.
One guy was at the field with the Blade Sunday, and
the wind was just too much for it and it went in straight, broke
up pretty bad.
