I am also thinking about getting the SJM 180 light combo from FlyingHobby. I have heard nothing but great thins about FlyingHobby, it seems to be a safe place to order from, and they have great prices.

The only thing that concerns me about ordering the SJM instead of a Trex 250,is parts availability. But, since I will be flying it inside my house I shouldn't be getting too crazy and I think crashes will be at a minimum.

As for the Gu210 gyro, I have read it is very similar or slightly better than a GY401, so on this little heli I will give it a try.

Hobbycity have loads of parts in stock and if you can wait it is cheap shipping as well, but if I put this thing in i will buy a lot of spares in 1 go just makes more sense really, glad to hear the gyro is on par or better than a 401 as I love that gyro, I would have put 1 on but it looked too big to me.
Anyway the bird is shipped andf will keep ypu all informed of the progress and may do a build thread on here if anyone is interested

RC-Tek is the US distributor with a supply of spares.
