Having looked at a few private vids on Youtube Hal, I would say "It's very stable and easy to learn on".

Here's a good flight sample. You can hear the wind in the mic, but the heli does not seem to blow about much. If I wasn't married I would get one myself, but the brakes are on for more helis. I'm building the odd scratch model though.

There are lots more vids on Youtube.

Never owned a 3 blade heli myself, but one might think that with a 3 blade heli will have more rotating mass in the head & blades and will have a lower head speed over 2 blade helis. More rotating mass = better stability and a slower head speed will mean less broken head parts to replace in the event of a crash.
This is a FlyBarLess (FBL) heli, so Everything will depend on how good the 3 axis gyro is in it.
I checked the specs out and it looks like something I'd like to add to my fleet, so I'm going to see if I can find some reviews or vids from owners of it. Also not a bad looking Tx for a RTF heli.

Well, thanks guys...that scale 3-blader will probably be my bird of choice after I learn how to fly on this 4-channel fixed-pitch Novus, which I picked up today.

I bought this very same Heli about 2 months ago and returned it the next day because I thought it was "too small", but later, after getting my head threaded on straight, I thought that now it would be smart to buy it again, just to learn with.

(So what did I want to start with...a T-REX 700?)
