I've had a good experience with the 150X -- I mean after installing metal servo gears and servo savers, that is. When I was just starting to learn inverted flight, I had all sorts of crazy crashes -- plowed it directly onto my concrete driveway, slammed it into my car, wrapped it around lamp post, and more! These are crashes that would screw up any helicopter, so I cannot complain about installing new shafts, booms and main gears.

In any case, the M1 sounds like it's going to be a great heli for the rest of us out here in heli land.
