Skip the Walkera and hold out for the SR. It should be out by the end of this month. The Walkera is an ok heli for the price but the SR will do more for you in the long run. I don't know anyone that has flown both (Walkera and mSR or any Blade heli) that prefers the Walkera.

Yes, the SR is supposed to be able to handle 3D with some minor upgrades.

My crashes are cooler than your flying! ;^)

The SR is, to start, a FP Heli. It is very stable and would be a good beginer heli. If you have spent some time with coaxial helis (4ch) the is the next step. If you want to stick with indoor learning, get the mSR. I have one and love it! The SR in still mainly an indoor heli or a very light wind outdoor heli.
Later, when you've gotten good at sport (non-3D) flying, change the blades and settings on the SR and you will be able to start learning 3D. But, you will still need a Sim for 3D unless you have a endless supply of $$ for fixing after crashes.

There wasn't anything in the E-flight web site (I checked too), but in the video (from Jan AMA Show posted all over this site) the rep that is doing the flying said that the SR would be 3D capable by changing the blades (semetrical, can't remember the size) and adjusting the Tx settings. You may need to upgrade to a DX6i or DX7 for that. If you take a close look at the SR rotor head, you'll see it is CP...

i thought it was 3d capable from right out of the box..even comes with 6ch radio

all he is saying is if you want you can bind it to your dx6 or dx7 radio

and it does say RTF that means ready to fly so i dont think from what they have said to upgrading the blades

thanks Funknrock
very cool , it will be very interesting to see it when it comes out , thanks again

they are listing the TX as a HP6DSM 2.4GHz DSM2™ transmitter , here is a link but there is no photo or specs

http://www.e-fliterc.com/Products/D...ProdID=EFLH1057

and i found this link with photo over at Amazon , seems to be the same TX that comes with the Blade BCPP2

Lonewlf,
It looks like it is 3D capable ou the box. I watched the video again and he only mentions 3D ablility after binding to a DX6i/DX7.
I think it's a good starter because its low rate stablility. It will be easier to learn on than many other FP little helis. Because of its size I don't know how it will do with crashes. It may go though blades pretty quick. I do know the Walkera breaks pretty easy.
If you want a durrable FP, go with the mSR. I beat the hell out of that little heli before I broke the blade grips. I put CNC grip upgrades on it and am still using the original blades and flybar. Its size also makes it easy to buzz around the house!

Copperclad,
no prob!

one more question..if it cant do 3d with the hp6dsm then why does the radio have 3d capability mode in it?

all he is saying in the video is you can "fine Tune" with the dx6 or 7

I think the SR comes with flat bottom blades, but is CP not FP.

Yes, it is a CP heli. It is set-up out of the box to "Fly" like a FP heli, very tame, not too sentitive on the sticks, new heli pilots tend to overcorrect. As your skills and confidence increases you can make it more responsive without upgrades, sounds like a good idea to me.

The radio that comes with the SR is programmable.
Just need a computer to do it.

Hi mckrackin
yes i have seen the Horizon site on the SR , i am asking about your statement that the " TX is programmable and just needs a computer to do it "

i must be misunderstanding you

are you saying that the SRs TX connects to a computer for additional programming , like the TT Innovator

i have read through the manual and i don't see any mention of a USB port , or cables to interface with a computer

if so , do you have a link to this information , thanks

I probably shouldn't have said that.
I am going off hearsay myself.
But for $99 for that radio separate,it better be programmable.

The guy that did the test flight video says in the video that the settings in the TX can be adjusted for more aggressive flyers.
