Default AXN Floater Equivalent

A few years ago when I was into my RC Helicopters, for fun I bought an AXN Floater https://hobbyking.com/en_us/floater-...290mm-arf.html which was awesome cheap fun. I flew it until it just finally fell apart!

I am looking to get an equivalent, but this time I am starting from scratch. I will probably get a Spektrum Radio to allow me to upgrade models but I am keen to get a recommendation as a replacement for the AXN. It shows as "sold out" on HK but I suspect it's just not stocked any more.

Any ideas? I will buy and fit servos, and acquire batteries. Any full kit list recommendations also welcome.

Cheers

Jon

The various Bixlers would probably suit your needs well. They are quite popular with the FPV crowd who just want a slow, stable plane that's easy to launch and fly and will hold up to their often less than perfect landings.
