Most model helicopters are a single crash away from major repair costs or are so slow (coax) that they don't move enough to be damaged. The MSR breaks that rule. It's a speedy ultra micro heli that takes a beating & keeps the rotor spinning.

Unlike most model helicopters of it's size, the MSR (Micro Single Rotor) has a single main rotor blade, & a tail rotor to counteract torque. This means it can be much faster than the typical coax in this size. But, from some innovative offsets of the flybar & a tilted main shaft, it's nearly as stable as a coax to make it forgiving to beginners.

Available as a RTF (Ready to Fly) complete with 2 batteries, 4 port charger, and a simple but effective 2.4GHZ DSM2 transmitter, or a BNF (Bind-n-fly) model that includes everything but the transmitter, the MSR can be the perfect entry into helicopters, or a fun indoor heli to use in the winter months for the expert flyer.

Using the Spektrum DSM2 technology, you can use any 4 channel or better DSM2 transmitter from Spektrum or JR, or another brand with a DSM2 module, so the radio you use on your larger models can also be used on your smallest!

Although, the MSR is incredibly durable, there are some parts that are more prone to breaking & thus you might want some spares on hand. The tail motor if hit in a crash can pop the endcap off. Once that's done, it's near impossible to replace the cap, so you'll need a new Tail Boom Assembly w/Tail Motor/Rotor/Mount: BMSR. Another common part are the Main Blade Grips with/Hardware: BMSR.

This is probably one of the coolest hobby grade models to come along in a while in my opinion... As an intermediate heli pilot who has flown .30 sized Century Hawks, a Raptor G2, and Blade CX2; plus have worked with friends and family fly gassers and a gas turbine heli, IMO this little guy is probably the most fun and least intimidating to fly out of the bunch.

First off is that this heli really is very easy to fly. Normally I have had a dim view of helis that use a separate motor to drive the tail rotor, but this one has been the exception to the rule. Reason is that motorized tails generally have a hard time keeping up with throttle inputs, requiring constant "rudder" correction as the heli is either throttled up or down. Not so for the mSR... I've only noticed this tendency under very rapid throttle movement. Otherwise it is quite stable and holds it's heading very well. Also it is quite stable in a hover, VERY close to the stability of the CX2 has been my experience. Trick is not to get too heavy-handed with the controls.

The other big thing this little heli has going for it is durability. Been flying it in my computer room and in the bedroom, both areas are limited for space. As can be expected, I have collided with a few objects, and has not harmed the heli AT ALL. That's a big positive as it allows a person to try things and take a little more risk than they might otherwise try with a larger collective pitch heli. With the Blade mSR, it's a simple matter of picking it up and flying again. Really helps in the "building confidence" department.

Have to admit that this heli has some other nice touches to it too. For one thing, there is an LED on the circuit board that lights up the pod during flight, making it easier to track.

Verified Purchase
After enjoying the MCX so much, I wasn't sure if I should buy the MSR, the CP Pro, or jump straight to the Blade 400, which will be my next heli. I almost went with a CP Pro since the price is close but you get a good 6 channel radio with the CP. Thing is, you get a better 6 channel transmitter with the Blade 400, so the MSR BNF still seemed like the most cost effective stepping stone.

At first, I thought I made a mistake because the MSR was much more unpredictable than the MCX, and I thought the problem was partly the imprecise basic transmitter. But after some practice, most of the the unpredictability was due to me learning single-rotor flight characteristics. The basic radio is definitely too vague and clunky for the MSR, but it is adequate.

I find the MSR a little frustrating because it can (and often does) go way too fast for indoors, but at a mere 0.8 ounces plus 0.2 for the battery, any wind blows it away. It's a great little performer without a reliable venue.

Great: Maneuverability, speed, overall durability, single rotor, sounds angry, extra tail rotor and mixing flybar, comes with two batteries (uses one at a time) and a great 4-battery charger with a wall plug.

Frustrating: Unstable in a light wind, too sporty for the basic transmitter (precision control is much better in the low rate mode, but then it lacks the control throw to move any faster than an MCX), flight time per battery is shorter than the MCX even with the 120mAh battery.

The MSR's surprising, MCX-like durability was definitely the best reason to choose it as an intro to single rotor flying.
