Second M2 purchase

Wonderful little helis! Original one is my beater, this one went to scale? Hughes 300 and 3 bladed head.
M2s fly wonderfully in a wide range of headspeeds.

If you can get a heli off the ground without a catastrophic crash, this is your bird. Easy to repair and easy to adjust FBL and radio to your desired flight characteristics.

A very, very good Heli

This one was a tough nut to start out with as I do not own a transmitter to set up pitch curves, expo's and such. I am brand new to the hobby so am learning as I go. The omp hobby m2 explorer is a great heli to start out with, however, it is very challenging for a total newbie such as myself. It is very rewarding with the ability to adjust directly from the fc, yet disappointing in that the provided transmitter is very limited (no trim ability, no way to program any sort of pitch control or expo control) yet I am managing just fine with being able to tame it with just the fc itself, witch when combined with a proper transmitter should make this heli one of, if not the most versatile heli on the market. Is it worth it for the beginner? Yes, with a small caveat, take your time and be careful. Right out of the box it is too much for a beginner of any kind, read and search for all the info you can and learn how to tame this one, it will be very rewarding if you can.

Glad you are enjoying our product. Thanks for the review and more great products coming soon.
