" Raptor 90SE, Special Electric"

Didn't know that a Raptor 90SE is a MICRO !?!

Hornet 2 and X3D - the most powerful beasts.

For durability, the Hummingbird FP takes some real abuse,
and I've beat the hell out of mine. Flew it under the car last night
by accident.
Just noticed I broke the boom, so I used some CA and
good as new. No wobble nothing.

My vote would have to go to the T-Rex...Ease of use, parts availability and great flying qualities are the pluses.

I have had a Hornet and a Hummingbird FP, The Hummingbird, though it wa a pain to fly, was sure tough. Out of boredom one day I flew full speed into a bush, straightend out the blades took it up for another go.

The Hornet, I hated the tail on the thing. IT would always let loose. Put over a grand in the thing, it is sitting on my shelf.

I really like the Eolo, a buddy has got one and it flys great. I love the size of the heli, almost just right. Parts are exspensive though.

I have another freind who has a blade. For just plain cost, it is a bitchen little heli. THe tail is a handful though, but what would you expect for 120 bucks...

So T-Rex for me it is.

Is that a 6s 5000 in your pocket,
or are you just happy to see me?

I wouldnt know from experience, but it looks as though the MaxiR is the best of the best in the micro world. Wish I had one!!

On the other hand, the best of the best in the electric world is the Joker. I do have one and love to boast about it. It is certainly not micro though.

Hi

You need to be more specific as there is no one model that will be great at everything, if you mean a true micro and not a mini like the T Rex, Zoom etc, then the Hornet X 3D is the best for out door advanced flying but no much fun in a small room.
A fixed pitched model is much better for in the house as they are more duerable and do less damage to things.
The Hirobo Lama XRB SR or Twister Bell 47 are the most stable indoor models by far.

The Hummingbird is hard to hover steady.
i've gotten some good flghts in so far, and
I can hover within a 1-2 foot area.

The hummingbird is a great indoor heli. It is a little hard to hover but it will take alot of abuse from a biginner.... If you get it above 3' off the ground it's really pretty stable in a hover, and I fly mine in a 10' square area in the basement.... It will keep you on your toes in a tight area...

Tom..... No "D" flying....

Does take a while to get the hover down.
But, like I mentioned in another post,
makes the big one feel tame now.

I guess it's not a micro, but I vote for the QJ8. I've had a hornet and just wasn't impressed . I know that the QJ8 would be large for in the house, but I was just amazed at how it flew. It's pretty durable too.

Gas is Great
Camper Fuel is Better!!

I'd have to agree with shuttlepilot, the QJ8 is hi performance out of the box. The first time I saw one I had to get one. You wont need to worry about upgrades too much with this machine. Its kinda like owning a Ferrari (although Ive never owned one) you definately cant fly it in your house. durable? dont know about that, plastic can take more abuse than aluminum in some cases if an aluminum part bends it could be rendered useless. But with that said, I think its fair to say that you wouldnt choose to buy a Ferrari because it scored really high on the crash tests.

You need to consider price in your question, You have
people listing micro's from $140 to over $1000! So decide
how much you want to spend to get dialed closer to your
needs / wants!

Yep, what price range are you in and what is your flying style???

There are lots of options, the best for one person may not be the best to another...

That said, I'll put in another mark for the Maxir as an extremely capable machine, handles wind well and is small enough to tear around a small gym. It can be set up from mild in base form to wild in the SE config. It's not on the inexpensive end, or for inexperenced builders (especially micros), but after spending big $ on lots of crappy micros for years, I've finally found one that is the real deal.
