What sim are you using, I fly on the Phoenix with my DX6i, just loaded latest upgrade and there are some awesome planes and helis to play with. Still love flying my 120 SR indoors or outside was flying in the snow today

Re: mSR or SR or Larger

I use Great Planes Real Flight, but an older version G3.5.
Still works well, but with only about 15 heli choices.

The snow will soften the landing. lol

Re: mSR or SR or Larger

I agree with waylander, no great indoor heli for outdoor.
I think the mSR is great indoor heli because it's so stable and crash resistant (not just because I'm selling one ) I have taken it outdoors and is fine on calm days with very little wind. Its great for learning nose in hover. Its fun because it flys so well.
From what I've heard and read the nano is also great for indoors and crash resistant, very good cp heli, able to do 3d, but people are complaining the motors dont last. Depends what you want to spend.
From what Ive heard and read, the mcpx is not great for crashes, are underpowered for their weight and the tail doesnt hold well in certain maneuvers.
If your looking for outdoor use, I think the 300x is very stable and capable, or the 360 warp or align 450. The 130x from what I read requires lots of fiddling, upgrading and maintaining to fly well.

Re: mSR or SR or Larger

I'm not sure why people are complaining about the 130X. Mine has been amazingly durable, (just ask the indoor guys I fly with, it has hit the ground hard with no damage) and flys fantastic. It's bone stock and I fly it reasonably hard. I've been extremely happy with mine. Compared to my T-Rex 250, the 140X is a dream. I have fought many hours with my 250 trying to get it to fly right, where as my 130x needed a couple of gyro tweeks (took 2 flights to get it right) and that was it. I would not recommend a 250 at all. Same with the Blade SR. Stay far away from it. The mcpx does have it's issues, but if you're not planning on doing any 3D with it, it's actually a pretty decent little heli. And quite durable as well.

I would however agree with the recommedation of buying a collective pitch heli. Even if you're not planning on doing any acrobatics, a CP heli will fly much better outside than any fixed pitch heli. Especially if there is any wind. Small fixed pitch helis like the msr are fun indoors, but if you want to fly outside, they're just too small.

I might also suggest the Walkera Mini CP .... I've been beating the crap out of mine and it's taken an incredible amount of abuse. I've plowed it nose first into the concrete floor at the gymnasium repeatedly. Most cases, I just pick it up and fly again ... the worst I've had to do is move the mast collar back down. It's about the same size as the mCPx.

Have you tried the new V2 S-series? Extremely robust compared to previous generations of this model.

Re: mSR or SR or Larger

if you can fly on the sim. i would go 450 size. very stable for learning but you need lots of room to fly. try to stay away from blade altogether. only the new 550 kit looks good. it will save you money in the long run
