    First CP!

    I have played with radio controlled planes on and off for many years. Started flying back in 1989.

    Late fall I renewed my R/C plane flying, and got into single rotor fixed pitched helicopters, in the hopes to move up to a collective pitch (CP) helicopter for the spring. I did not want to spend a lot of money on a CP heli to start with, since I do have a tendency to let them sit for long periods of time, I decided to start out with a less expensive heli.

    It arrived today. Now I have time to set it up before spring comes, but I have a feeling it's going to feel like forever till it gets here and I can test fly this bird.

    450 size; collective pitch; Esky Belt CPX


    Here it is with my 2 fixed pitched helis, a Blade mSR and a Blade 120SR

    My neighbors love to fly these helicopters, and around the 4th of July and New Years, they stock up with fireworks and attach them to the helicopters and engage in aerial battles in our cul de sac! They're pretty neat, I've wanted to try one out for a while now!

    LOL.
    I thought that make some people go

    I'm starting to think I may like the Helis more then planes. I certainly do not need near as large a flying area for a heli.

    Here's a good size comparison:





    Lets see how much $$ to get it flying again after my first flight. LOL
