The E-flite Micro MSR heli is popular at Bentham, owners should read the channel 5 bit  from :

 There is a very important section in the instruction manual (page 23) that I totally browsed over in my haste to go flying the first day I got my mSR. It has to do with channel 5 settings and talks about the reduction in cyclic servo throw (both aileron and elevator) by about 15% if channel 5 servo direction is not set correctly, or is not turned on and set to 100% of travel range. In short it is like turning on elevator and aileron dual rates if channel 5 is off or set to any value lower than 100% in the on position.

On my DX7 the gear switch acts as a dual rate control with the Msr

I have one of these, but have had only three flights with it. I find it a little skittish as it takes off, but once in the air is as stable as a coaxial, thanks to very large flybar
The 4 port charger is a great feature, 6 batteries should keep you flying
