If you're happy with the MCX, that's great.

If you ever want to fly single rotor again, simulator time is very, very helpful.

Have you used a sim at all?

FMS is free, and has planes and helis

If not, HeliSimRC is a free sim, "450" size helis only, though the parameters can be modified to simulate other helis :

Clearview is very good and is only $40, and can be downloaded from http://rcflightsim.com/, including a time limited demo version.

For an apparently higher end sim (I haven't tried it), Phoenix is highly rated and is ~$140 : http://www.phoenix-sim.com/news.htm

Re: What's the most stable small single rotor heli

Good Day

I would go for the E-Flite Blade mSR. Its fairly stable, and takes hits against the wall well.
Just my thought

Re: What's the most stable small single rotor heli

Since my last post I aquired a Blade msr, Kyosho Nexus, Walkera 36 and a Robbe Mosquito. Have only flown the Blade but have worn it out several times over, now I'm going to get good on a flight sim before I even attempt to fly the others.

Re: What's the most stable small single rotor heli

I just got a Walkera CB100. It's a little bigger than a MSR but is still great for indoors. It is supposed to fly more like a single rotor but still extremely stable and the MSR is supposed to fly more like a coax.

RC Groups has a poll asking which people who own both prefer

Also what micro heli has the best or strongest lift,I have some ideas on improving stability that I want to try out.All suggestions would be welcome.Thanks. Jim
IF you want something with control and authority you want:

1) Full collective control (eliminates all fixed pitch helis)
2) Full tail control via driven tail (eliminates all electric motor driven tails)

3) If its going to be in a small space- eliminate anything 400 class or higher.

4) If you want quality, get something with alloy parts.

MY choice is the 250 class heli. Either Align 250 or its clone, the HK 250 is all I would recommend for you

I presently have the HK250 alloy version. Flies "almost" like the Trex450 but because it is smaller is a little squirrellier but is in full control. Its smaller size means I can actually maneuver it around the basement in forward flight. With my 450's, anything but a hover is too dangerous. This heli is fully 3d capable, and with a 1000mah battery I get 7 minutes per flight, and I only put 800mah back into the battery

The HK250 is full CCPM, belt driven tail. For $57 +shipping itís a great deal. Purchased with all the other HK parts (servos, motor, ESC and Gyro), I got mine up and running for $120 at my door minus Receiver.


There is a plastic version available for $29, but a friend has one of those and trust me, for $25 more, you are miles ahead with the alloy version.

PS- I am assuming you already know how to fly. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS FOR A BEGINNER. If you are NEW NEW to helis, get the HK450 instead (plastic or metal version; they are both excellent helis)- it is much smoother and you will learn 10x faster
