Razor Micro Heli V2 gets my vote but they are hard to find. No 3D. It's an Fixed Pitch heli and you need a Collective Pitch bird to do the 3D tricks.

The CP "upgrade" from helihobby is really more like custom building a heli with some HB parts. I think it would be easier to buy a hornet, and put a tail motor in it.

It will be easiest to wait for the new CP HB. It will not be much longer, and I suspect it will cost less than the Pic Pro or Hornet.

Unfortunately the upgrade from HeliHobby is more than twice as much as the helicopter itself. Seems a tad silly, no?

I agree and there have been mixed views on that item. Personally I would not buy it. You can almost get a Hornet V2 for that price, and I suspect the CP HB will cost less. I can't wait to see it

The Acro 280BB is the best motor if you stay with brushes. Do a search, you will find plenty of info,

I have been doing some searches on upgrading the FP Hummingbird to CP. Found the aluminum CP upgrade that helihobby has, 200 bucks is a bit steep. Anyone know for sure if you can use stock hornet parts to do the same upgrade. So far that seems to cheaper as long as it will work. Come forward and be the expert, I'm all ears.
Also just noticed Century is coming out with the Hummer II first quarter 2004.

Thank you. Century just put that up within the past 24 hours. I suspect it will be available within the first part of the first quarter of 2004. I am looking forward to it. Also noticed the BK117 and the Jet Ranger are now in stock
