Don't give up on the MJ2. You might have issues, but it's the best out there. You could look at an Ion, but those really aren't that great of a design. pm me if you want any extra mj2 help, and maybe we can work through it.

Rhett..... I can't fly, but the Profi sure can.

Gerd at minicopter knows his product well, and runs great support. I'm never one to suggest sticking to brand for no reason, but if you don't like the personal service of minicopter, it will only get worse. You've had some unique issues ( which Gerd might be slow to help), but I think you'll get over those as soon as your ship is flying. I can't comment on Minicopter canada, but fxaeromodels has been good at shipping stuff, in the USA, and I get products from minicopter germany in 2 weeks or less.

You could always stretch a Logo 6003D. Stock they take up to 650mm blades. PM DJ he is master at stretching logos and what not.

What size blades are you wanting to run?

If I didn't have the Vario and know of the lighting fast and top-notch product service Daniel has (Vario Canada back east), I would have gone with a Logo 6003D and stretch it.

I hate downtime as well and the longest it has taken to get any parts for the Vario have been from day ordered to 7-8 days later at the very slowest.

On another note, Ken at RC Flight store here in Burnaby carries Mikado and has great prod knowledge/flight testing and satisfies guys across Canada.

Just a thought.

ps. I had a Joker I a while back. Loved it to bits but the wait for parts got me off of it. It's a shame with MC Canada.

That's discouraging. I have been going back and forth whether my next heli will be a MJ2 or a stretched L600. I had a feeling the parts would be an issue with the MJ2. No doubt it is an awesome heli. It seems to be a real issue with the older Jokers...maybe that's why I'm seeing more for up for sale. My stretched Logo 20 still flys smoothly with 720s, but 800s would be sweet if I decide to lift the D300.

I have both maxi v1 and a new v2, never had any real problems getting parts from US suppliers other than the 32-4 motor for the v1 which I ordered direct from Germany (both Joe and FX offered). Gerd always helpful, Joe at Joker USA as well, FX if its in stock ships fast. Supply issues can be frustrating but these are sweet flying machines, time tested and proven. I love my v1's and well the v2 is better yet which I didnt think possible. Nothing out there currently will haul the weight around of a pro camera like a Maxi. Be patient its worth the wait.

I do love how the MJ2 flies. It's sweet when it does fly. I just hate downtime. I guess I got spoiled with the Trex. I can crash that piece of junk and be up the same day.
Yup, and parts won't cost you an arm and a leg. But the Trex is a piece of junk, just so everyone knows.

I've been flying my junker Trex all stock for over a year. Nothing has failed, ever. Knock on carbon fiber.

noobs,

I think the Raptor 90 and/or the Maxi Joker boom will work on a stretched Logo 6003d.

I really don't think Joker parts are that expensive. I mean I guess compared to a Trex 600 they are. I also would never had believed you could use a Trex 600 with the junk I dealt with for years with the Align 450 helis. But I will have to say after seeing the results 'trackhead' has achieved I have changed my thoughts on that.

I still like the Mikado line of helis very much and the Jokers are nothing but top notch.

The new Bergen looks very industrial but it costs the same as a Maxi Joker and they are located in the same state as myself (Michigan), Hmmmmm.

All in all the junker Trex600 has performed even in harsh conditions. ...-24°C, light rain, light snow, fog... and 85 Km wind......but who would want a piece of junk that's up 24/7?
Since September 2007 I only have less than an HOUR of flying time with the MJ2... wasted money sitting around...
Sounds like the Trex is not the junker after all, eh nooobs?

I'd second the Bergen idea. I had a big Bergen gasser for a while, with parts availability and customer service being absolutely top notch. Where else can you call the factory and talk with the owners and get advice on the internet?

Maybe you should be the first customer utilizing their new e-heli's. I'm not sure if they're available yet though.
