Went to my LHS to pick up a prop for my plane and saw this nice scale Huey for $240. Couldn't resist the temptation and brought it home. So far, all my scale heli's are either 30 or 50 size nitro and cost more than $1k a piece by the time all the glitches are eliminated and all the blings are added. Initially, I was skeptical about the $240 purchase. After the maiden flight, I was actually very impressed by its performance. After 20th flight or so, the tail prop adaptor separated during FFF and sent the Huey into a violent piro resulting in approx $100 in damage. (Need to check the set screws on these RTF's) I am currently upgrading the electronics, throwing away the 2-in-1 mixer unit and coverting the tail to a Feigao brushless unit. I'll update once the project is completed.

Here is the video of its maiden FFF.

I replaced the brushed tail motor with a BL Feigao unit, running 2 separate BL ESCs and an old rate gyro with my programable Eclipse 7. It has been flawless ever since, a must upgrade to avoid tail surprises.
