So I have a $20 S170 heli that is a blast to fly indoors and so cheap I have no worries about crashing it.

I have seen a couple youtube video of people with $100-200 6 channel helis from ebay. I thought that might be a nice change of pace.

Has anybody tried one of the el cheapos ? Impressions?

On a budget the small blade helis fly good and parts are readily available

Junk. The cheap toy helis can be fun like you said but when they start getting expensive it's just money better spent on a real heli, or a sim, or maybe even just beer

BTW I might have a spare set of 550 woodies if u still need.

A friend at work brought in a $30 xheli copter and it was as stable and fun as my $150 Eflite MSR. I order the next step up a V911 2.4 for $39 and cant wait to fly it.

Thanks John. Currently Piloting Hirobo XRB Llama, SRB Quark & E-Flite mSR, 2 Blade CP,s
