    It's cute right? And ought to be fun to fly, right? I think so anyway.

    The problem is all I can do is look at it and wish I could fly it. I bought the heli and transmitter from different companies off of Amazon.com. I didn't mean to that's just the way amazon works. Amazon said they had 6 radios in stock. I thought, "Great! I only need one", and ordered it. Next day I get a phone call, "Uhhh, like sorry man, but we don't actually have any more of those radios in stock and they're back ordered and we don't know when we will have them but you can cancel your order if you want". I'm pissed but I figured I'd order one from somewhere else. It's apparently a popular radio since no one had them in stock. As a last resort I turned to Ebay and found one. Ad says they ship from Miami so I thought, "Cool, it will be here in a couple of days". Next day I get an email from Paypal, "Your product has shipped!".......from Minneapolis. Ah, well, it should be here tomorrow.

    Thank you, just had to vent.

    Have two of them. Different models but similar. Lots of fun indoors.

    It will suck if after all that you crash it into the wall and break it on its maiden voyage.

    Sure would. It's built to survive complete noobs so I'll see. Oh, yeah, and all parts are available from Blade and Horizon. Repairability was one of the main selling points. That and 4 channel operation.

    The only thing that I ever broke on my mSR was the tail rotor, and those don't even have them. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    Those things are so much fun to fly, not to mention easy! I'm sure the wait sucks.
