American RC Mantis as well never got it into the air (thank god)...Century 3D Pro Hummingbird either flew very well or not at all.

...my handle backwards is how I feel about current world affairs...

Wore out TSK Mystar.30 with a Russian made (MDS?) engine. It was right before TSK was going under.

Regrets,

Blade Cp I hate it with a passion. I hated it so bad I give it to my cousin and paid the shipping he hated it so bad he give it to my uncle and paid the shipping. I shipped it from Wa to Ca then it was shipped to Va. I live in Nc now its almost worth it to take the three hour drive to Va just to STOMP the freaking thing.

Os Hyper 50 I knicknamed this engine the bearing grenade. I love everything about this engine except the fact that every two or three gallons exploding bearing parts totaled this engine. Every time without fail. I used to fly about 6 gallons a month. I pulled this engine out of the heli after every weekend took it apart the seemingly fine bearing would always explode on me later. This POS engine is why I have two fifty sized helis sitting on the shelf not being flown. I almost swore off never buying an os product again because the $$ and bullpoop this engine caused me.

No Regrets,
DX7

MCPX I love this micro turd for what it is.

130X I had a rough start with this heli but love it now that its sorted.

Blade 450X I love this helicopter it is smooth and powerful it has been the most trouble free of any heli I have ever had. It is by far the best 430 dollars I have spent on this hobby.

Hawk Pro with an OS 32 it flies about a half hour on a tank its my cruiser I have been flying it since 2006 and it still wont die.

Raptor 50's Loved all three of them I just hated the engines in them.

Trex 600N LE Best flying heli I ever had I think partly to the ungodly power of the OS 55.

OS55 It was unboggable the nitro = of E power. It was involved in the crash that killed my 600n it split the crank case. Sadly I did not have it long enough to see if it had the same bearing issue as the bearing grenade POS.

AR7200BX This may be the reason I love my 450X so much I am dying to try it in a larger heli.

ENGAGE!!

Just because it was worn out doesn't make it a bad heli. I loved my Mystar .30. Extremely well made. A bit heavy, but it was built like a tank with high quality parts throughout.

American R/C Mantis.

I'd have to say that it wasn't a bad copter, just a bad purchase and for 1982 it was on par for a cheapo that a 19 year old kid could afford.
7 years later a friend lent me his Kalt Baron 50 and I learned the hover on that and never looked back.

Have an American R/C .40 new and unassembled in a box if anyone wants to punish themselves needlessly.

must go faster, must go faster.........
