The OMP M1 electric helicopter is the little brother to the incredibly popular M2. While it's size is quite micro, it's performance envelope is not. For pilots looking to keep their fingers warm in the winter months and have access to an indoor flying location. Outside or inside, there is no limit to what the M1 can do. 

M1 shares all of the design traits from its bigger brother - dual brushless motor operation, and an "all in one" style flight controller that includes dual ESCs, gyro, and receiver. 

Receiver Notes:
The M1 is offered in two versions; SFHSS and OMP. The differences are outlined below:

OMP:
This version includes a built in receiver that is "OMP Protocol", and compatible with the OMP Radio, and Radiomaster radios. The pitch and throttle curves are not adjustable - and are set from the factory. An ideal choice for the beginner pilot.

SFHSS: This version includes a built in receiver that supports "SFHSS" Futaba style protocol. It is directly compatible with Futaba radios that output S-FHSS protocol, and radio master radios. UNLIKE the OMP version, the SFHSS version allows pilots the ability to adjust their throttle and pitch curves - and ideal choice for the intermediate to advanced pilot.

Receivers that are PLUGGED INTO the gyro: Any receiver that is plugged into the gyro system will OVERRIDE the internal built in receiver system, and will accept DSM2/DSMX satellites, as well as the OMP Hobby Futaba satellite receiver. Please refer to the notes above about which model has adjustable throttle and pitch curves!

OMP Hobby M1 Electric Helicopter (Yellow)
I've now had the OMP M1 Heli for a number of weeks. I'm a new Heli pilot; but, I've flown fixed wing model aircraft including competing in Precision aerobatics for many years and have considerable experience at that. I 1st learned to fly a heli with a Blade 230S V2 last year. I bought the M1 to replace a Blade Nano CPX that had died that I had used for indoor flying.
The M1, is a much better constructed Heli and very durable. I 1st flew it with the Gyro enabled which makes the Heli very stable, better than the 230S by far. I next flew it with the Gyro off and it is similar to the 230S; but, better. A nice feature was the Gyro switch, on the TX, that immediately stabilized the Heli if I thought I was in trouble. It was quick to respond and immediately placed the M1 in a stable hover mode if the sticks are centered.
The M1 is very responsive in a solid way and in my opinion, would be as good or better Heli to learn to fly with as the Blade 230; Parts are no more expensive than the 230S.
I fly my M1 with a Jumper T18 transmitter, it is my 1st experiment with using an OpenTX transmitter; the Jumper has the OMP protocol as one of the options built into it which I used; it works perfectly. I fly other Heli's I own with an Spektrum NX10.
I would recommend the M1 to anyone, its a quality product.

The OMP Hobby M1 is a fabulous helicopter! The M1 is super well built and looks like it should be relatively easy to repair. I found it a bit challenging to position my Spektrum satellite receiver on the M1's airframe, but this is expected with such a small helicopter -- it was a labor of love! I eventually de-cased the receiver, heat-shrinked it, and then attached it to the side of the M1's frame. Now, the satellite receiver is hardly even noticeable! I do most of my flying in Idle 1 with a throttle curve of 70%. After 4 minutes of vigorous flipping and inverted funnels, my stock battery packs are at about 3.78V/cell. Perfect for daily flying!

I think OMP Hobby went to great effort to develop an excellent micro-heli, and they nailed it!
