I don't have the redcat, but I have a syma x1 which is very similar.
Ive owned a few coaxial and fixed pitch helis....none of them fly as well or are as durable as a quad rotor!
My quad handles light wind better than any other heli ive owned, is more stable, doesn't get all out of balance every time you crash and can fly faster than stuff I paid $200 for.
It doesn't look as cool as a heli.....but it is WAY better to fly.
the syma also has the flip function....which makes you look like a really amazing pilot
