It's pretty damn amazing right out of the box!! Flew today in 20-30mph wind and handled it like a champ. Love it, and love my wife

That would be an awesome little heli to fly once I get the basic maneuvers down. Glad you're having fun with it.
I have replaced the swashplate with the aluminum Microheli unit. Also, the boom splintered into pieces, so I bought a 2mm carbon fiber rod, covered the wires with a black coffee stirrer, and made it a half inch longer. Still flys good, maybe even better. No inverted hover yet, lol.
