Indoors or outdoors?

If Indoors: Living room or triple gym?

For a more crashbomb proof outdoor heli it IMHO makes sense:

- to go 1s
- less weight as possible: ~45-60g (max)
- there are some micro (CP) helis which only weight: ~32g

If you go higher in the 120-150/160 class (2s) (either motor driven tail or torque-driven tail (TT)) and you have a weight in the 100-150g range (130X, V120d02s, Trex 150X), then more will be damaged if you hit hard or with the wrong angle.

But it might still work out if you accept some repairs and you are not a beginner.

The newest (announced) 2s heli will be the Eachine E160.


If you go into the 240g (Blade Fusion 180, 4s) or 339g (Blade 230s V2, 3s) weight range you will have to replace more things when you crash, especially if you are not fast enough activating the rescue or hitting the hold switch (=motor OFF).


...or maybe I have misinterpretated your question as I'm not an English native speaker.

What heli are you searching for?

Default M2 from Omphobby

The Best the heli so far. It is easy to fix if you crashed . Very minimal parts.

I am curious: How good is the OMP M2 alu material? Especially once you have crashed? Does it withstand the crash a bit?

What are the most broken parts? (yeah, I know, every crash is different depending on the angle and how fast you activate the hold switch or rescue)

So far I have no problems with the Blade 4503D alu head block and alu flybar seesaw holder and I had three crashes (1st and 3rd were extreme).

How do you know if something is slightly bent and what is the reason for bad vibrations (e.g. head block, blade holders, alu washout control arms,...) when it does not completely break?

K110.

Its really actually breaks, more like the parts just wear out real fast. Fly over grass and the main gear will be probably the only thing to fix. It pops off, then you pop it back on. You can usually do that 8-10 times before the hole enlarges and you need a new one.

Haven't crashed the M2, but I get you're gonna need a handful of parts. Looks easy to fix though.

No you're good, you got the idea. And yeah I definitely think I need to stay smaller than a 230s. I have a 230s and let's just say I could have built it from scratch at least a half dozen or more times.

I have a CPS and put a brushless inrunner on it, but I feel like I'm still going to just go through the entire heli a bunch of times and spend just as much as I would on something hardier in the long run.

Yeah that thing looks strong and simple! I just wish it wasn't 2-3 the price of similar sized helis. I'll have to take a better look at it and see what the spare parts cost, the initial buy in is quite excessive lol.

Do you know if I can use a Spektrum tx on it?

I followed a suggestion I saw online to use a small nut to make it grip again. It was quite a pain to get it on, but the gear was a snug fit on the shaft afterwards. Still pops down in a crash as well (that's a feature I've tested very thoroughly). Saved me having to throw away an otherwise perfect gear.

The most bullet proof heli out of the box is a good fright stimulator.

Since this is in the "100 Class Electric Helicopters" forum, and since the OP said "bulletproof..."

No contest, XK K110.

#1. M2 is not a 100 class heli (where this post is)
#2. M2 is nowhere near bullet proof. With it's high speed speed and weight, something will break in a crash.

You would need to add a Spektrum satellite receiver to use a Spektrum Tx.
