Anyone know of a quality, small (preferably less than 12inch) 4-channel with a mode 2 controller? the Syma S800 was almost perfect but its a mode 4 and I don't have the tools to mess around and solder it into a model 2, nor do I want to. So, any suggestions?
We really need some more info before we can answer this to our fullest abilities, as in
What skill level are you?
Are you looking for collective pitch, fixed pitch, or coaxial?
Have you got the transmitter to fly a bind and fly model on, or are you needing something that is rtf and includes the transmitter?
Basically some questions to help me dial in on what your really looking for
I started with a 3 channel then went to a 4 ch, double horse 9116. It was cheap and parts are kinda available. Then I got a cheap 6ch 450 kit from xheli.com but HK has them too. I still have another HK torque tube version 450 around here somewhere. Oh, if you want to start with a 3ch don't buy from the mall kiosks, they are all 3ch and they are double the price of amazon.
get something you'll stick with if you wanna go cheap used align 450 clones with aftermarket electronics are the best.
for almost the price of a full sized cx you could get a T-Rex 450 clone for $250
really cant beat that
