Strengths:
Hovers quite well, flew out of the box!. Good design, cheap spares. . .
Weaknesses:
Lots! Poor servos,all electronic gear suspect. Shafts bend very easy. . .
Overall:
I have replaced almost all the electronic kit except for the motor & ESC. All original servos (bought it over 12 months ago)have been replaced many times. Now fitted digital ones. Obviously built down to a price.

Strengths:
Well made, looks good, rc gear ok, kit setup RTF / pre flight checks required. . . .
Weaknesses:
plastic breaks easy, mainly, gears teeth, rotor head weak on low speed ground blade strike. servos break easy, sluggish response on rc gear. . .
Overall:
fun to fly, quite stable in hover, motor power good. upgeaded head and tail is required to put it on par with t-rex450. in all good heli for the money, not for beginners. h/h gyro would help loads.

Strengths:
Cheap and easily obtained spares - good if you crash a lot. . . .
Weaknesses:
Designed and built down to a price. Tx poor. ESC likes to fr itself. You'll spend lots on upgrades or ditch it.
Overall:
Tempting as a first 'proper' electric heli, but design and build issues let it down. Get a Copter X. . .

Strengths:
Price from £130 to £160, well built, digital servos as standard, well packaged,. . . .
Weaknesses:
Be warned like all ready to fly Heli's she's not quite ready to fly out of the box, servo arms need some adjustment to calm her down for the more inexperienced pilot, Manual is in a word garbage,. . . .
Overall:
Worth the money but get some one experianced to check it over before flying or disaster will strike. . . .
