The folks at E-Flite just released a new fix-pitched micro heli. It’s similar to the popular mSR except it’s flybarless courtesy of the AS3X Digital Flybarless system that’s already in used on the mCP X.

The new mSR X is touted to be a intermediate step up from the mSR, and not a replacement. Along with the upgrade to flybarless, they fixed some of the annoying things that initially plagued the mSR. Like the new cage around the tail motor which will help prevent the motor cap from popping off and destroying the brushes.

The mSR X comes with new 150mAh LiPo. Hopefully they are good quality cells, because it’s actually priced pretty reasonably at $3.99.

The mSR X is scheduled for a mid December 2011 release. Horizon Hobby will be demoing this new heli at the iHobby Expo being held this week in Chicago. I personally can’t wait to see how it flies and the mods that will inevitably come up for it.
