Default Piccollo or MS Hornet?

I want to get an indoor electric heli. The two that I have heard of are the picollo and the MS hornet. Both are available with collective pitch now. I wont buy a fixed pitch now...Which one is a better buy? The Picollo or the Hornet?????

The CP Hornet is harder to build and set up then the Picollo, but Hornets do have better performance once you get it going properly.

The Hornet tail is more responsive since it uses pitch control rather than RPM control (same issues as FP vs. CP main rotors).

Expect to spend some time with the Hornet getting it all working.

Spend a few hours reading through the discussions at www.hornet-heli.com and www.rc-groups.com. If you can ignore the dirty laundry there is a lot of useful information.
