Default A new "X-effect" helicopter ?

Has anyone ever heard of or have any opinions of the following electric helicopter ? Anyone think it is worth while?

Put the extra $100 or so with it and get the Hirobo Sky Robo.

my thoughts exactly. i was planning on doing that, then after i get some "skills", selling it for 150-200 (ill have to try to keep the damage down) and then buying a real micro heli like a t-rex, hummingbird 3d, or hornet.

if you are going to buy a heli in the 150 to 200 price ragne to practice, you should just get a sim and practice on that.

it's a copy of the megatech housefly. they are great helis for newbies. real easy to fly. my uncle has one, and I can fly it really easily. the difficulty of the piccolo isn't even comparible with the easyness of the housefly.
