    Cheapest I've seen yet. Sold out at Tiger, but currently available at Fry's.

    For that price I'm very tempted.

    My personal policy is to assume that, if Tiger Direct sells it, it's probably not worth spending money on.

    Have a look at bladehelis.com for good value ratio in hobby multicopters.

    Are we talking about the helicopter or the operator?
