I bought an AR6100e and for backup, I ordered a ar6100 from dealextream in China for about $9. It takes about a month for delivery.

I have not finished my build yet because I got a Phoenix flight sim thats eating up my time.
Im glad I did cause I don't think I would have made it to "hover level" without breaking up a lot of parts.

Default My 2c

I'm very happy with my cheap 450 (CopterX 450 pro TT from ehirobo). Like the thread starter, my kit came with a 401 clone gyro which was junk and got replaced with a quark. The only other criticism I could make is that the stock tail was slightly sloppy, but that's pretty common. I bought a turnigy 9x tx/rx which makes for a seriously cheap total package, even with a high-end gyro.

I have severely abused the stock hardware and I am really impressed at how it has held up. The blades were perfectly balanced out of the box and the thing flies smooth, quiet and stable.

There are MASSIVE savings on spektrum rx at this link.
$25 for a $80 AR6200 RX
$8 for a $25 AR6100 RX

There is also a brand called Orange that makes cheap RX for various brandes of Tx inc. Spektrum.

Default Cheap knock off Spektrum RX's

I noticed a few pages back of some people (myself included) using the orange rx's. There is another that I also use that is far cheaper than the orange ones and works just as well. I've never had any issues. I like to buy as many of these in one sitting as possible. AR6100E for $3.99 each.

I wish you luck with this project... I've just given up on trying to get mine airborne, despite having invested countless hours into putting it together... A complete waste of $50, IMHO.
