Default RE: Eflite Blade MCX or Walkera Lama2

I was thinking the same thing.

I have a couple of Walkera Collective Pitch Helis (60B and a H1#b), but they are too big to fly indoors.

My friend came over with a couple of Eflight Blade MCX's, and they were great indoors. I liked the 4 channel flyability and the digital trims on the 2.4GHz transmitter... But they are $129

Then I saw the Walkera Lama 2 and a few of their other coaxoal helis, and they look pretty good at $79...!

I like the Walkera batteries and their charger, I've had very good luck with mine from the H1#b.

The Blade MCX's seemed to be really durable, my friend says it never breaks when he crashes. The Walkera Lama is a little smaller (175mm vs 190mm), but The MCX is 28g, and the Lama 2 is 50g... the Lama2 is twice as heavy, so I'm not sure what the performance is like. The MCX battery is 3.7v and 110mAh, while the Lama2 is 3.7v 400mAh.
