Default Favorite coaxial hobby grade ultra-micro.

Good day. I've been flying fixed wing for five years now and want a small coaxial heli for inside the house. Do you folks have a preferred micro heli? I'm looking at hobby grade and not Radio Shack types. I think I have my choices down to the Blade mcx2 or the Helimax axe 100 cx. I have a JR9303 for the BNF version of the Blade. What are the pros and cons of either heli? Maybe you know of another heli that is on par or better than my choices in the same price range. Thanks for your thoughts.

Just my opinion but I bought a Ares Chronos CX75 at my local Hobby Town in March of last year and have been very please with it. My local HT has parts for it in stock so that is a good thing. The down side of this unit is that you charge the heli's lipo with the TX batteries, so you have to stock up on AA batteries. I broke a little dog bone looking like thingy up on the blade assembley and the HT had it in stock, only part I've needed so far, and I fly it every couple of days down my basement. I was given a Helizone for Christmas last year but it just didn't hold up (pinion gears striped) so went to the Ares after that. MCX2 are very good units also, have several friends with them...
