Having just bought a Micro Mosquito that broke in 5 minutes, I would like to know which model people buy (this is /., face it: you either want one too or you already have one). I know there are more serious RC choppers out there for 300-400$+, with gyros and sturdier build, but let's say I want a sub-100$ unit for indoor use. Any suggestions?
(I think the problem with the Mosquito is that the spacing between the drive motors is about the same as the width of a rotor blade, all that has to happen is for it to fall the wrong way and it chews its own blade off. A better design IMHO would be to place one motor aft and the other at the bow, if such words are used for a chopper.)
