    My new toy

    I'm gonna call this one "ready" for general flight. A little big for the back yard (there are smaller ones that fit great though ), but seems to be a good size for your average parking lot. Thought I'd throw a video of it up here as this is a pretty cool hobby to get into.

      You should equip that thing with a small wireless camera. That would be badass.

        How long and how many wrecked models to get to the point to where you can fly this. What did you start out with? I'm blown away Andy, who said life had to be ought eh!

        Great way to sweep the parking lot.

          Lol Pat. At first crashing was fairly frequent, the less frequent, then I think it has been at least several months since I crashed. So far this learning curve is on one year this spring. And I still have a lot to learn. I started on CP helis with a T450.

          Wireless camera...yeah that would be cool to fly it like your on-board, been thinking of doing something like that eventually

          Thanks guys

            Did you build the A-Star body yourself? Darn good job if you did. You should make up a long line with a mini bambi bucket attached to the long line

              Made in China It comes as a pre-painted fiberglass shell, you assemble and adapt to the heli you have.

              Some stuff of what's out there:

                at least mount a GoPro Hero underneath for a different POV.

                        Yeah, those platforms are pretty neat.

                        But for a more realistic heli that does the same thing...there is this:

                        There is a future plan to have a GPS port working on it, so theoretically, this will park a collective pitch model heli where you want it and do the piloting as well. Or possibly turn it into a UAV
