The helicopter is a modified MD 530F and features all the high-tech sensors you would expect in a UAV, but in harder, better, faster [...]

You can find used transmitters also (got my JR and Hitec used myself)
I never had to update the firmware on my Aurora, but I still have the programmer.
It's really about the features but they are made for RC things like helicopters with many mixing options that you might not need.

... there's no buzz though there is still a slight grumbling noise as they move, is this usual for metal gear servos, I'm only used to plastic ones in helicopters. Could they require greasing since they have been in storage for quite a while before I built the kit? The cause of the buzzing on the base ...
