Im talking smaller than TRex 450 as I already have this. I want something I can fly relatively safely inside my house. I'm looking along the line of Shogun, CP, etc.. I have not kept track of these smaller helis so I need some input.

I am loving my EP100. 10 oz. 13"

They're on youtube.

I find a coax to be boring.

Yes Im looking for something shogun "ish" . Something I can do some slow forward flight around the living room and not worry about the blades ripping into anything.

I wouldnt mind a shogun with tail belt but it seems the shogun is fading away.

I've made indoor mistakes with a 20" Axe.

Scared the c54p out of my wife.

IMHO the EP100 is the cats meow.

I bought the pro with just the brushless motor.

I used good JR servos

AR6100 receiver

E flight heading hold

Common sense 800 mah 10C batteries.

It's a blast.

With a bell hiller head, it react fast as I weave through my living room

I think what's really cool the belt drive tail.

You need that presicion indoors.

I don't know about the quality of the components when purchased RTF

Anyone know

hi
my three bladed came with servos and a brushed motor , none of it top of the line , but it seems to be holding up OK , i would recommend getting the kit and sourcing all your own stuff , the belt driven tail is great , my house is pretty small and i cant even imagine flying a 450 inside , dana

Copper

I had a problem with the $99 version.

The pro was more friendly to servos fitting.

The $99 version, with the plastic swaahplate has been known to come apart in flight.

Mine DID!

hi Mike
mine is the standard kit but it came with the three bladed head and swash for $199.00 , the servos are cheap but work ok , since its a three blade i had to redrill the servo arms to get the ballinks in as close to the center as possible , i was very curious how it would fly , and ordered it before i had even seen there was a pro kit , here are some photos , dana

Blade CX2, Incredibly easy to fly indoors!

You can fly one of them in a phone booth safely with a little practice.

However, As you know, It can get a little boring.
