Read the on-line reviews and watch videos, The M1 does not disappoint. The only possible issue I'm having with mine is the tail motor is hot to the touch after approx. 5-min of gentle hovering and orientation training. I purchased a Radiomaster TX16S MAX from BuddyRC that arrived today. Any OMP or Radiomaster products that I need; I purchase from BuddyRC. PS I love the free Radiomaster swag that came with the TX16S. Keep up the great work guys!
Couldnt be happier with this heli!
I received my OMPHobby M1 with the OMP Protocol and the T6 transmitter from BuddyRC in a timely manner. I was eager to get the M1 flying because in one of the BuddyRC information videos on YouTube, "TJ" guaranteed that all you had to do was to bind/link the M1 to the T6 and to go flying.
What a disappointment! The M1 hug the ground at full throw of the collective stick. It wouldn't hover. Not enough positive pitch straight out of the factory. Does OMPHobby do a quality check before their products leave the factory?
I own a M1 and M2, both Futaba F-SHSS protocol, and I've never had a problem. My first thought was to start "tinkering" with the servo arms to get more pitch, but thought differently because the problem shouldn't be happening. So I called BuddyRC Customer Support and a "mild mannered man" by the name of Dan Ward answered. Well, Dan was familiar with the problem and he walked me through with instructions for "raising the pitch" of the blades using the "PITCH" setting on the OMP Controller onboard and the "ELEV" stick on the T6 transmitter. Thank God for that. It worked! There was no need for me to "piddle" and to tinker to make things worse. Dan Ward from Buddy RC earned a "5" in my book.
I can't think of a reason to buy any other micro 3D heli on the market right now. This one is perfect.
Excellent micro Heli. Super fast shipping.
