I have the Ufly myself and love it. It's bigger than the 4-6 and easier to see and handle.. I bought mine and get all my parts for it and my other helis [link=http://www.wowhobbies.com/]HERE[/link]

You can try helidirect.com. I've purchased many parts from them. Very reliable.

They are pretty much the same thing except for size. The Ufly would handle better outside in a slight breeze. The 4-6 would be better inside in a more confined space. And as already said when you start to actually fly the ufly will get small quick enough, the 4-6 would be harder to see.

I bought my Ufly from wow - it was a modified "super" version. The servos they put in it were a piece a crap and didn't work right from day one. When I first powered up they would freeze and make a loud buzz for about a minute. They would freeze up mid flight and cause a crash. Here's a video of the start up sequence - [link]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZA8DjGrtUk[/link] The esc/bec was defective from day one - power would fail mid flight and the heli would drop like a rock. When I approached them they told me it was perfectly normal for the servos to make that noise and I didn't know how to fly. They put in an off brand esc and a different receiver so to correct all of the problems I had to buy new servos, a wakera speed control and the correct receiver. My $250 heli turned into just short of a $400 heli before it would fly right.

The Ufly is an ok heli, but my experience is wow hobbies has zero customer service and they modify the heli and put on cheap crappy parts - I would say stay the heck away from them.
