Never got into the planes but have had a few choppers,started with micros and the like and progressively got bigger ,then made the leap from battery to fuel.Been flying this for a while now ,almost killed my neighbor on it's first outing.
Nose to tail 3 foot ,tip to tip on the rotors 4 foot , does about 60mph.Good fun but f cking dangerous if you're not concentrating :D

Very nice
AIRWOLF springs to mind.
Mine falls out of the sky that often I wont upgrade it as the one i have just pops back together most of the time.
Do you have composite or balsa rotors?

Is that a Bell 222? Always wanted one after watching Airwolf :D

I've had a few rc cars, got a kyosho 1/8 scale 206 wrc in the garage, needs a new air filter as the mice have eaten it :( Must get it running again....

StuI could never overcome the ground effect, then if engine cut out... gravity takes over. Decided model planes was the go, at least with a bit of height and skill, landing in one piece without power is possible. Was involved with model aero club, lots of planes and helos, prangs and tears:)

Better get used to having fun so:D
Problem is as they get bigger so do the repair bills:confused:
And comfy footwear helps ,not with the flying ! But with the search when it craps itself and falls out of the sky:o

I have heard the choppers are very hard to fly is this correct? Two people i know both lost their choppers never to be seen again luckily one was insured.

Correct and right. A lot going on 10+ channels .Haven't lost mine yet but have come close on more than one occasion , crashed it loads though ,falls out of the sky on a regular basis:o . But great fun all the same.
If mine was insured i'd have lost my no claims bonus a long time ago:D.

I would recommend putting your contact details on it somewhere maybee you will get it back if it goes. Then again a rogue chopper on the loose may cause some damage so its probably best not to leave any evidence.
