Micro Heli has always been junk and known for soft alloy's now I guess we can add weak steel as well.

almost every high dollar/expensive micro heli part i have bought has failed in less then a year even with no wrecks.

there is not even a little customer support, there is flat none.

this isnt one or two parts this is any rotataing or moving part. some of the holders and other items that stay stationary where quality isnt needed are still working.

this is after 2 years of messing with them and hundreds and hundreds of flights testing there Junk.

my 500 tail hub lasted a year before it was so out of balance all it would do is shudder the heli I had to go back to the stock used plastic set up that works flawless.

on a 600 no freakin way would i run anything of theres, even the 500 is pushing it. all i have left is the horizontle stabilizer boom mount and teh alloy boom support rod holders.

I've had MicroHeli tail grips on my 500 for over 2 years now without any problems what so ever . Now for my 700 LE build I am going with the QuickUK in silver.

At the precipice, we change!
