With that said, I am not upset about the bashing per se, more disappointed that the brand jokes exist, regardless of which one.
I have to agree with you there gator. I got into this hobby at a time when none of that stuff exsisted. The most I remember of that was the old timer "Kraft" radio guys bawking about the Japanese radios being junk. My how times change. Now everything is like a Nascar interview in victory lane. In fact I think thats the next step... a "hat dance" on the podium.

I get sick of the brand loyalty stuff myself. I like everything... that works good. If anything I'm more inclinded to DISlike the "me-too" products.

Don't know anything about different brands, I'm so new my buddy brings the diapers

But having said that, I think the first few posts on this thread were not nice at all. Poor guy. Crashed his heli and no one says "Oh sorry to here that, hope you get it fixed soon" Or something along those lines. I would be GUTTED to read those posts if I crashed my heli. I haven't even had mine up in the air yet (tomorrow is maiden flight), and I'll say this:

Weigh up what it will cost to repair, if it's too much, start looking for another heli. Someone said check your local field and see what others are flying, they can be your tech team. That's what I did, so help is always at hand if I'm not sure about something. So maybe that's something you could consider rd5150?

Anyway, sorry to hear you crashed, I hope it all turns out well in the end

"Oh sorry to here that, hope you get it fixed soon". There I said it. "Oh sorry to here that, hope you get it fixed soon". There I said it again. That makes me twice as good."Respect my Authoritiah!"

Well, $170 isn't that bad. But its almost half the cost of a new heli. Especially when you consider this;

EVO50 $420 MINUS Carbon main and tail blades $130(value) EQUALS $290

I'd say that only battle is with your budget... and how badly the hobby has bitten you.

I was going to say that enough money will fix nearly any Heli, but I didn't think that would help anything. It looks like if your estimates are right however it shouldn't be that painful.

the only reason i was bashing the venture is because I had one and there is not much comparison to any of the "newer" heli models. I just don't think it's worth it to put the money into it.Justin - Team Horizon, Team Byron

matman, I edited that post with mailorder prices for the blades... my original math was with what my LHS sells the MAH's for. I figured I'd spare myself from the "creative math" bashing using mailorder heli price and LHS blade price.
