This is a great little heli, but has a tendency to have some tail drift. I see some guys have tried flattening the tail blades to correct this. Here is an even easier fix for you. The MSR tail blade pops right on, and makes this little guy locked right in. Ironically, the Align tail blade on the MSR seems to make the MSR fly better as well (just no pirouettes, it won't stop.) Give it a try and tell me what you think!

trex 100
I have quite a few of the micro style helps. Hands down the trex 100 can take the biggest pounding. With exception of the sad canopy that will crack when the wind blows. For circuit fun and buzzing around I would say trex. For pure fun factor..... the MCPX

mcpx blades
They are plastic, and quite flexible, but cut just like a 250 blade. Nothing like the MSR which has the fixed pitch curves to it. I have crashed this little guy 5 or 6 times and have yet to break a blade. The MCPX takes a little radio programming, but once it's dialed in.. yee haw The other nice feature, they made the head so instead of breaking blades and grips, you pop links off. Easy enough (if you can find them,) to just pop back on. If you buy one.. be sure to lock tite the blade grips, buy a bag linkages and a few main shafts if you can find them.

cool
The MSR is cool too... helps the winter go a little quicker. Just stay away from the Blade SR and all is good!

not my favorite
Sold that thing shortly after buying it. It's kinda the modern cp pro. If it is an rtf, dump the radio and bind it to a good radio. Crank that expo up and order your crash parts early. Or sell it and buy yourself the mcpx...

not really
Can't really say much to help you out there... feathering shafts for sure. Just can't take a very hard smack at all. Getting dad into it... try the blade 120. My son is flying it and it is super stable... the MSR but take take the wind a bit. He would like it and great for orientation training!

WOH, From what I know any Specktrum transmitter can be bound to the Blade RTF helis for that quality issue.
