Today I ended up scrapping the Venom Kodiak Heli due to the fact  it has not flown since new and they wouldnt take care of the problem or take a return or replace it .I could have bought 3 107s for what they wanted for the replacement electronics.Motors the blades and battery as well as its charger and gears and shafts are all new so saved all usable parts and threw radio and circuit boards away.But I did replace it with a Protocol Stealth Hawk and a very good flyer as well as a good looking bird.

     The heli fleet keeps growing every few weeks and when I see one I like add it to the fleet. The two Intech Falcons are still flying well and for cheap 25 dollar helis are decent little birds. The Protocol Skyline which is a Syma Clone of the 032 is a good flyer and even has been stable outdoors. The two micro Venom chinooks are fun to fly as well as the venom Apache. My two 107s Symas have many flights with never a problem and going to buy the Protocol Syma clone and see if it flies as well as the 107 does and then add the Protocol Vindicator as its a very large coaxial bird and see how it does outdoors as well.

    It is now flying season outdoors with my T rex s and exceed 60 Pro and considering the purchase of another raptor 30 because mines getting old and having to replace gearbox case,bearings and tail boom due to a stress crack from agressive flying. Still want to buy a Hughes defender body or the coaxial electric one my friend showed me that hes been playing with.Problem is flying the little coaxial ones indoors all winter and then I forgot a few things while flying my collective pitch helis thinking im still flying the coaxial Ive flown inside all winter and my 400 e now needs several new parts and was my little practice heli till 2nd day of practice outside.

Unfortunately we often go down the wrong track buying helis-I will say the learning curve is good for the future.The TRex is a awesome heli,keep us posted on your flying.Was it a Trex kit you got or pre built?
