Default Getting back in the game

Iíve been away from the hobby for a few years and have decided to get back in. My last Heli was a Blade 450X that I really enjoyed. I started out with the MCPX like many did. Now Iím looking for a crashworthy bird to get my feet wet with again. How well will the 230S V2 fill the bill ?

Hi, I've been away from the hobby for the past several months. I am planning to get going again right away. I have a 230S V1 that is a few years old. Last time I flew it was great. Alllin all it's a great machine. I've had minor crashes a few times, usually breaking the tail rotor and bending or snapping the tail boom. One thing to watch for is since the tail boom is aluminum, if it bends too far it can break and the sharp , jagged edge of the aluminum boom can cut the insulation on the motor wires potentialy resulting in a short. I never had an actual short but I did have damaged insulation. But this is easily remedied by either replacing the wires or putting some heat shrink over the area. All in all its a great machine, handles and flies very well, tolerates crashes well, and is generally easy and inexpensive to repair.
