inexpensive: kit price is 20000 JPY in Japan.
kit includes all linkage parts, wooden main blades and plastic tail blades.
parts availability is good in Japan.


the frame and skids are a bit fragile.
400mm main rotor blades are not so popular on the market.

overall rating:

AAAAa (four and a half of five)

excellent heli for novices or intermediate pilots, IMHO. If you wish some aggressive machine, go EX, LX version or EP-9.


the tail rotor rotates clockwise looking from right side of the heli. when your tail servo pull the tail control rod, tail pitch for right rudder increases.

1800RPM head spead (govoner) is sufficient for hover and normal cruising flight.

Separate RX battery or external BEC is recommended for PHX60.

My EP8 flies well with two Thunder Power Pro Lite 3S2100mAh packs in parallel. These Packs weighs 316 grams including a parallel connector cable (Hyperion LVX3S3700 pack is 312 grams with connectors).
