E-Sky is no longer a viable supported product option.

Times have changed too.

WL Toys is a fantastic option IMHO..

Yes it was and oh the pain and headaches. I remember them well.

In the helicopter world one thing to remember is.

The quality remains long after the price is forgotten.

Your point is well taken rcmiket.

I'm relieved there are new options in the world of cheap helis.

Yep, Got it today and it looks Great--like brand new. I'm going to get another one with the radio -- less than 100 bucks RTF and the radio is actually pretty high quality. Been watching YouTube vids on the 977 and the vast majority are stellar reviews. I always liked the micro's and smaller heli's cause you can fly them almost anywhere--the Li-PO's are cheap and the lighter they are the lighter they fall Plus----they won't cut your head off which is a Good thing.

Thanks Doug! I've hit the wall with no damage. It's a tough little guy.

Good plan on the 2nd V977! I got mine with the TX for about $90.

Hobby King has graphene batts for the V977.

Check out Harry Bunn in youtube.

Just be sure to spell it right or you might get something you don't want ti see!

The Belt-cp made me the pilot I am today.
Flybarred and rate gyro.... That's how you learn.
I think people starting out learning on modern flybarless set ups are spoiled!

Good God..... I'm getting old...

Been there done that also. With that said how many people gave up and didn't stay with the hobby because of that?
