Well Bell222, you're certainly entitled to your opinion, but you're clearly in the minority. What exactly do you find so objectionable in the 200SRX?Trex 700/600/550/500/450/250- GOBLIN 500 /RCA470-Warp360/500-200srx/130x/MCpx/MSR-550Hex/450Hex

Anyone know how to replace frame? Second time flying, broke frame, and now I don't know how to fix it.

There is a lot to it not just changing over the parts from one frame to the other, which is straight forward just take picture's in the tough areas like running wires and stuff, it's the programing that will need to done after I will give you some links if I can

this link will give you help with repair

you will need to download the pdf file (Advanced settings and setup guide) and read it through sounds hard but is really not just take your time.

Wow, that is a lot of work. I am thinking of quitting, it was hard enough to remove everything now all this stuff.

All that happened was the heli fell from 1.5 feet off the ground (into nice soft grass) after I cut the throttle . Since the blades are heavy and the frame holds on to the bottom part with 4 thin areas, it snapped.

What do you mean by reprogramming? Why would I have to reprogram anything? I would only be disconnecting the receiver wires and putting them back together (Not trying to sound rude, I am curious)

Looks like it took a bit more of a hit than a "simple 1.5 foot drop into grass", but nonetheless, While it is a lot of work, it's actually not that hard. Just remove one part at a time, and install it on the new frame. Should not be any "re-programming" involved, I'm not sure why that was mentioned. If you need to replace servo gears, you'll need to re-center the servos (instructions on how to do this are in the advanced instructions)http://www.horizonhobby.com/pdf/BLH...Setup_Guide.pdf

A big part of any RC hobby is set up and repair. It can seem overwhelming at first, but stick with it, you'll get it.

Do you have a local hobby shop, or a group of modelers near you that you could ask for help?

I haven't found anyone near me. And I know right?! That is a horrible result for such a simple crash. The wind blew her sideways and I cut throttle immediately. I don't think it was even 1.5feet actually, i believe the blades caught the long grass or something, I do not know but that is a lot of weight on it's hear parts for the delicate frame.

As for fixing, I just have the fear of having a table full of expensive heli parts that I can't put back together. And yea the servos don't respond anymore, so I assume I need to replace some gears but they are out of stock in the Uk it seems so I guess I will have to buy new servos.

Think about that for a minute. You ALREADY have a bunch of broken expensive (not really) heli parts that will NEVER fly again unless you dive in and give it a go. Really, what do you have to lose? Figure it out;

New Servos @ 16.00 each = $32.00
New Main Gear @6.00 = $6.00
New Frame @8.00 = $8.00

Maybe some incidentals for an additional $10.00

Grand total $50.00 and you get to learn how this heli goes together.

Or, a pile of useless junk

Your call.

Fair point. But what if I won't figure it out and then I'll have expensive parts (+$50).

I'll give it a go. Any tips?

What I meant by reprograming was the Blade 200 SR X Advanced Settings and Setup Guide 1st Trim Flight and 2nd Servo Calibration and Swashplate Linkage Adjustment all the stuff you will have to do after replacing a servo just read through a couple of times ask a few questions should be just fine

A few things... Let's review this thread. There is a relatively new helicopter and there isn't a dedicated sub forum. several negative comments about the site and Mark has a new subforum and way to set up new areas posted within 24 hours..not bad.

Several experienced heli guys respond with detailed reviews discussing the machine and it's "user envelope" - every machine has its designed use profile - and talk about how good it is for what it is and what it is intended to do. One new heli guy responds with a one word answer - JUNK - Nothing else to describe a review or what he does or doesn't find it doing incorrectly...so who should we give more credibility to? I'm going with the more information guys.

To Felix... a big part of this hobby - at least to me - is the building and rebuilding. These are labor intensive machines and require a certain amount of mechanical work. More after a crash, some on a regular basis for maintenance. If you go to any fun fly you will see guys with helis in various states of assembly and repair. With an unlimited budget you can get several and have a shop mechanic doing the repairs, the rest of us do most of our own repairs rebuilds.

To Not Here... Kind of the same thing, when you start upgrading and blinging it is just a matter of choice when you stop, you really never get finished, kind of like scale machines.

For my purposes, I think the 200SRX is a great training helicopter and can be fun for someone who wants to fly it in more advanced manner. I still think early lessons such as those from Radd's School of Rotary Flight online are critical for early relatively crash free training.

Enjoy your machines, this is a great hobby, Andy
Inverted IS more fun!

This little heli has gotten some bad reviews but my experience with it is good i started out with a wltoys v911 to fly around house
then bought the 200srx flown it for a couple month's and still do fly it now I'm learning colective pitch on a 450
it is a great confidence boster when you can fly it on the first day I've had several years experience with fixed-wing i don't know if that helps much or not
its just my opinion but I'm glad i bought the 200srx it's nothing special it does what it's supposed to do i feel it's a great tool to learn to fly

After all these months of flying and learning on the 200, I am ready to move onto a gaui X3. But damn, I am lucky i got back into the hobby when this little beauty was out. i will always be thankful to blade for making such a great trainer bird but i am also glad to move out of the blade family due to their ridiculous pricing
