$99 for brushed or brushless main, or a double brushless.

$99 for a brushed is not a good deal, $99 for a bl main is an ok deal, $99 for a dbl bl is a good deal.

have you flown anything before? 4#3B is a difficult heli to learn on, but if you can fly a 4#3B you can hover any heli

I have one for sale right now with a bunch of extras in the sale forum. Check it out. I am a heli noob and I could hover it and fly it around the room, land it on the coffee table etc within 5-6 batteries. It puts the sim training into real world and makes you concentrate and focus on the disc. It is fun.
Price would be about the same as what your looking at once you take into account shipping. Difference is all the spare stuff and extra batteries.

Depends whether that is shipped or not and what shipping is. You will need some spares (motors and blades) and batteries to go with it where it is brushed.
Personally if I were buying new and looking I would look brushless but they are a lot more money. That is why I bought 2 used packages and some batteries and charger. I had about 200.00 into the heli all said but it has been a blast to fly.

ok, if you want new, then that's an ok price for a brushed but getting from wow is going to cost in shipping to canada, you will have to wait longer but dealextreme.com has them for $112 shipped.

if you're on a tight budget then go with this, but it is going to cost you in the long run as the main motors do not last very long depending on how you treat them (wd40 after every couple flights and some have reported >70 flights)

just a heads up, this heli is now like 4 or 5 generations back as a line, and 3 generations back in this particular model (4#3B brushed 1st gen, brushless main 2nd gen, full brushless 3rd gen)

walkera is moving towards the cb100 and 4#6 for fix pitch heli's

you can still get parts for the brushed 4#3B, but I did a search of vendors that I have bought from and they are not stocking the heli's much anymore with the exception of Wow (good vendor)

If you can come up with another $75-$80 then go with the cb100 if you have never flown or a 4#6 if you're experienced

At the Cross is correct but I have a number of flights on the main motor in the heli and it is fine. You can get almost all the parts on ebay but you have to wait for stuff to come and I am not very patient. There are some stateside sellers. I got the charger stateside and some other of the spares there also.
