Does anybody know about the stuff from Mikey's RC?

http://www.mikeysrc.com/Store-450-Heli-Kits.html

Wondering if this would make a good starter for someone new to the hobby. How about his battery and electronics, would they be OK?

I think his videos are excellent for newbies, to learn how to built helis from scratch. Personally I am very meticulous my electronics and maybe my are not the greatest, and maybe just a step down from the best and they work great. Mickey's RC electronics may not be too bad, but I have seen his electronis and they look and probably are those cheapos chinese electronics the you can find on Ebay. For example the servos the he uses you can probably get 4 for like $20 on Ebay. Definetely I will never put these kind of servos on my heli. I rather put used or new servos such as Hi-Tech, Futaba, JR, etc. Thats the only downside I see with Mickey's RC, but besides what I mention above the aircraft kits, ideas, and educational videos are excellent for everyone including beginners.

Although it says "Clone of a T Rex V2" it looks nothing like my V2. You might think about parts for this one. Will they be available? If you want a T Rex clone than look at EXI or Hobby King's there 450 clones are direct knockoffs of the Align stuff and parts will not be a issue.
