Blade CP Pro

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I started with a Blade CP Pro with little sim experience and can state that it was a real adventure. The only thing that kept me in the heli game was the low cost of parts.

If I had $1 000 to blow on on a heli (because you need extra batteries, parts, lipo charger, etc...) I would go with the Trex.

That said, the $300 you'll spend on the Blade CP will give you a good taste of heli flying and give you the time you need to find out if you're a heli guy at a relatively low cost.

Thanks everyone.
| decided on a Guai Hurricane 550 Ep.
I have flown it 4 times now.
It is real stable in hover. Handles a little wind nicely.
So far I have hovered: Tail in, Side left, Side Right and Nose in.
Now I want to try a figure eight.

Next year I will probably join a club, but for now it is my local school parking lot and the Simulator.

What a rush!
