Looks kinda like the new sjm180. Anybody know anything about this one? Is it a cheapo? I've never heard of skyartec before either.

I wish they would show some close-up pics of the frame, tail and main rotor. Makes me think that they aren't any of its high points. I guess its just a beginner RTF type of thing. I doubt the qaulity is too great. I would like to hear more about it though, just out of curiousity.
My first heli was an art tech RTF falcon 3d se and it was a mistake. Out grew it in a month. learned my lesson.

besides, read the specs, 4500kv motor and 3s power? unless they gearing it down, which I doubt because it seems heavy, thats one heck of a headspeed.

As I mentioned in the othe rthread, I have one and it is awful. It's decomissioned now - used it for about a month and sunk masses of money into it in spares - mainshafts last about 10 flights and then the head flies off, the OWB shaft lasts about the same.

The motor is a belter however - very strong.

Mike.
