How to build a helicopter? Many of us know the basics at least, but what if a 9-year-old, who's a girl actually, wants to build the heli from this kit. Is it possible? Will it fly? This is what we have tried to do with Antonia and the Oxy 2 kit. Luca Invernizzi - owner and designer of this heli - has done a good job.
We just popped in sadly, because of other to dos. But we have got a nice selection of photos even in this short time. Thanks to Farnham Model Helicopter Club for the invitation.
We have written a summary of the event before. Here is our selection of the photos taken at the great event organised by Rob Bingham and his team. This is how we have seen and experienced one of the greatest events.
A really spectacular video made by Jan and Daniel Schreier about XLPower Specter 700. The best one in the last couple of months. Must watch.
EMHC held the May Fly-In day last Sunday at their own airfield in Eynsford, right next to London. The event was great and also the weather, therefore a nice number of pilots attended and enjoyed it. This is one of the nicest RC helicopter airfield in the United Kingdom with an amazing panorama to Canary Wharf in London.
Anyone thinking about purchasing a middle size helicopter for daily use has to consider choosing these helicopters. These ones can be among the bests in this category, and not just because of the price, but also because of the capabilities. A combination of these things make these helicopters to perfect choice.
The Soxos DB7, Swiss brand Heli Professional's flagship helicopter. Specifically, it started life as a Soxos 700 which was modified and updated by world champion Dunkan Bossion. In this article we are going to delve into the details of this helicopter and point out what makes it different to others in the same class.
The Specter 700 is the biggest model of XLPower. Made of durable but lightweight materials, like titanium, carbon fiber, aluminium. The mainshaft is wider than usual main shafts in this size, its diameter is 15 mm.
The Logo 600 SX is one of the most successful helicopter of Mikado, it's available since 2010 without any major changes actually. What more, it can be declared this is one of the most successful helicopter in its category. Who has ever flown this heli, can't really tell anything bad about it
A great helicopter of the Italian SAB Goblin series. The Sport edition can be listed as a "cheaper" one whilst it's free of all compromises. Based on its flying capabilities it can be a beginner helicopter as well. However even the Combo kit doesn't contain everything, owners have to decide about some questions.
Its previous model, the 600N was the longest manufactured Align model, and the last classic Align helicopter without any main changes since the beginning. Now the new 600 has arrived, which mixes the appearance of 700XN with the experiences of former 600. Some parts inherited from the 550. After all it can be declared, there is no part in this model which hasn't changed comparing to the previous one.
A potentially good and interesting helicopter from Blade RC. Don't get confused of its number, because it's bigger than an average 500. We will return to this later. It follows the classical patterns from many points of view, but there are numerous interesting innovations from other aspects. At the end this is a remarkable aircraft.
