There are lots of people flying the Falcon, you can do a search on Google to find a site with well over 100,000 posts on it.

Great flying, tough little heli. First one I've had any real success flying. I have it programmed into the DX7 for more parameters to play with. HH gyro is rock solid.

You guys are luckier than me. I've had two now, both pretty low quality, even for the money. One the tail never worked and the other the motor fell off in mid flight. Hobby lobby has been no help. I'll just use my Falcons for paper weights and stick with quality helis.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

Had the ESC go on mine shortly after I got it but fine ever since other than trying to trash it and needing a few repair parts.Drove into the side of the sports dome on Sun. Straightened the flybar and kept on truckin. About 20 batts. through it now and flies steady as a rock. Made my own landing gear after trashing two of them.A little wider and longer. Has skis on it now so it doesn't drop out of sight in the snow

If Hobby Lobby is supporting this heli, I think all is well, I dont think they have been in business as long as they have by screwing people!, I got my HB King from them, and it has a one year warranty on it, so that has to say something!.......

Falcon 3D

Hobby Lobby does support the Falcon and very well I might add! In response to Trex600crasher, you show you live in Brentwood, and you say that Hobby Lobby wouldn't make good on a defective Falcon? Maybe it's not the Falcon but the pilot? Since you say your nickname is crasher maybe that explains a lot.
As for me, I have two Falcons, one with probably nearly 100 flights on it and one that only has a few. Neither have had any major issues, just the standard loose screws and no loctite on parts. For the money there's nothing out there that compare for a ready to fly helicopter!

I replaced the servoes gyro and RX and TX and mine flies great now,i think it would be better as a bare bones kit.Its not a very tuff copter compared to a blade cp or a trex but it does fly nice once you replace everything,

falcon 3-d

i never replaced anything on mine. it flies fine the way it is. some people need more perimeters to fly like a decent radio and something with pitch and throttle ajustments. the radio it has pitch ajustment built in you can turn it = or - for more motor speed or less. the fm works good......no glitches so far. for 300.00 bucks it flies better than some of the gas powered models i have had over the years, but then again i haven't flown for over three years now so things have changed,huh?..........RON

which heli

i don't know about the venom,but i have a falcon 3-d and it flies good. everything comes with it and the parts are cheap. i haven't found any shortcomings with it,in over forty flights. these helis are small and kind of had to see,so i painted my canopy and fins yellow. it's lacking a balance charger,it just has a 1 amp li-po charger,but you can buy a balancer or just get the blade cx charger and balancer in one,12 volt or get the power pack for 110 volt that plugs into it. 20.00 each...............RON

i was on the web late last night and i found the thunder tiger raptor E325 mini titan. Out of all the mini electric heli's i'v seen that's the only one i like and the falcon but i made my mind up that i'm going to get the kit with motor and ESC and build the heli and save up and buy radio,servo's,gyro etc after i get it built. the e325 mini titan is the heli's for me

mini titan

i checked them out on heli-proz. even though their out of stock on the one with motor and esc,it's sounds like a nice heli for that price.is it a brushless motor? electric sounds the way to go. down the road i want the swift 620. i have a vid of it doing 3-d,man can it move. it's a 60 size and quiet expensive. the motor is two hundred and the battery packs are around 180.00. i've had alot of nitro heils and gas too,over the years. electric is just a change............RON
