What do you guys think about this heli and how does it compare to others (eg. Raptor, JR, Freya, etc). The reason I ask is I have seen this kit for sale on other sites for $650.00+ but they have it listed on their site for $399.99, on sale. http://www.quickheli.com/ If it's worth a crap at all, that's super cheap.

I did several searches and didn't find much about it. So speak out, what do you think about it???

you need to know that Quick makes a pro and a sport, be a-ware what you buy, make sure that you know your getting a pro if that's what you think your getting, I never bought from Quick or flew a Quick heli, I do know that alot of guys say the Quick helis are gerat, and they do look good, but I also know that there are alot of guys that doesn't like Quick, but that's the way it is with all RC heli manufactures...

I had a Quick60Pro for a while and I wouldn't get another. Not that it isn't a decent heli, but it doesn't compare to my Xcell's (even the 1001ST). I didn't like the belt driven tail, needed belts pretty frequently. Mine didn't have a constant drive tail (not sure if they make one with). The clutch/start shaft assembly isn't supported very well and the bearings wore quickly.

On the up side, it was a good flyer with the OS61WC.

I never had any problems with the staff at HHI.

60 Pro

I built one for a friend. I didnt care for the heli much. I am no pro by any means. There were a few parts that were wrong and a couple missing. I called QWW and they sent the right parts out right away. I had a big conflict with the tail control system. I even posted on RR, but not much help there. I made it hover but it was scarry. Looks great.

I purchased mine for $399 in the summer. Fitted with an O.S. 70
it has plenty of power and flys fine.I have not flown it as much as I
would have liked to, partially due to the infamous O.S. piston failure.
It does track well through aerobatics and despite every one saying
that the metal pro is heavy , when I had a linkage come off and close the throttle (not enough locktite!), I had no problem in autorotating from
about 300ft from an inverted hover.I've never had a problem with belt driven tails, so I wouldn't let that put you off. Personally I would say that you can't go wrong !
