My daughter bought me a micro heli for Christmas, it was only a two channel but it was still fun to crash...
Well, I had to try something a little better, so I picked up what they call a 3.5 channel micro...
Worlds better, this one actually hovers once you set the set the trim.

It is a good way to unwind in the office after a long day, the only problem is now I am looking to see what mods I can do to it.

For under $30 this little mosquito is fun to ram around the office.. Now I am looking to buy another to strip every oz. off it and change the tail prop to see how fast it will go. This one will stay basically stock to be my trainer, the only upgrade I foresee is the batt upgrade to a 250 MaH lipo

That is either a big nut or a little heli

Anyone else get into these little buggers?

I'm in the process of building (albeit slowly) a quad copter. The board supports up to 6 motors but I'm trying it with 4.

I like the micro copter arena, they are a blast.

The brookstone store supposedly has a true 4 channel in micro scale but its not cheap.

Wow, I just noticed the second from last picture. Someone stamped the plan under the heli "PRELIMINARY NOT FOR CONSRUCTION". At least that wasn't me. :D

clearly the second canooter valve belongs to the flux capacitor clearly shown in subsection c34.

China has been hacking our computers for months, abort abort abort!

Now, back to your already in progress thread programing.

I was addicted to these for a few years. After draining my wallet I got out and into rock crawling. My wife will only allow me the office model copter. I do like the newer ones with gyro that are out.

I just picked this up, extremely steady even in wind conditions! It's a 4 channel quad copter. I had it up about 75 feet with a little breeze and it was awesome. 2267

Just got this Chinook with the gyro. I ordered a different one and this is what arrived, I contacted them with the issue and they said I could keep it and they will send me the correct one... Bonus!! Another heli for the office

What a blast to fly though, I would gladly buy another http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/10/18/6e9yhyjy.jpg
