hey guys looking to get into the 700 class. the ballistic seems to be a nice heli. i just dont see this forum to active. i was wondering how popular they are and are the parts easy to find ? also those who do have them, how are the holding up over time and how do they hold up in a crash ?

I have a Ballistic that I am getting ready to put together. Looking at what is in the box and the comments here and on RR this is going to be one awesome heli. From what I can tell there is not a lot to talk about, Curtis nailed the design from the get go. This is a BFE helicopter-Build, Fly and Enjoy.

I've had a Ballistic since release and have had no problems with it.

My only complaint would be that the skids aren't quite as rigid as other brands, but meh, them breaking in a hard landing is better than breaking frames or something else up the line.

I've got the helical version, with metal tail gears. I used to grease the metal gears for the first few weeks, but don't bother at all anymore, they get a bit warm after a flight, but nothing to stress over.

As the bloke above me said, its definitely a BFE job.

BTW - they don't name it a BALLISTIC for it good looks. Once you fly it you will know why .....
