Default *best* indoor heli

looking for a good heli to fly indoors. I've played around with the cheaper ones. I'm looking for something that has more control if possible.

any suggestions?

a co-worker showed me the blade MCP today. I'm thinking that's what I want. Is there anything else comparable?

It really depends on what you want to do with the heli.
If you are looking for a heli that can do nice aerobatics and you have something to spend you could try a Walkera V200D03. Several good reviews out there.

If you're not looking to do 3d then you could go for a Walkera V200D02. It's flybarless so that is pretty cool. And definitely not expensive. Comes with radio as well.
On quiet days you can even fly it outside if you like.

good luck in your search for the right heli.

I would go with a MSR. They are coming out with the MSRx I want that one. If you have flown coaxial heli then you are gonna want a FP heli.

if you have a good radio (ie. DX7) then buy an Mcpx and take the time to setup the throttle and pitch curves. If not then I'd go the Msr route.

I have a dx7 and MCPx. I've been having way too much fun with them.

That's awesome. According to your sig, we have very similar vehicles.

Default Blade

I'm using a Blade CX2.

Now and then I get brave and fly it outside. I've spent enough money to buy another one in the parts I have purchased for repairs because of this.

Most of the time it flies pretty good as long as there is not much breeze or stick to indoors.

Had MCPx during snow season. You can't go wrong with it.

I just have a little Syma S107G and I love this thing. It absolutely cannot go outside, the slightest breeze will take it to OZ but indoors it's a blast. Very controllable and small enough you aren't going to break anything.

I had tried an air hogs heli before and it was a piece of junk but this Syma is amazing. Very controllable and they are like $25 on Amazon.

I have a silverlit it is pretty much the same as a syma. It has a gyro so it can fly outside in a very light breeze. It has a camera on it also!
