Hmmm... After reading some reviews about the RoboRaptor (Posted Thread here last night...) I've decided not to buy it, http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif but was wondering if there are any here, that could tell me if some of these Electric Helicopters are any good for a first time buyer. Yet again I've heard that they can be a pig to control and that any thing below 150 - 200 aren€t worth bothering with€¦ But I don€t want to pay much more than that in case it is a flash in the pan on my part http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

What do you think, spend 150 and buy one like this: http://www.sussex-model-centre.co.uk/Mini+Copter+V2+Electric+Heli-5236.htm

Or this: http://www.sussex-model-centre.co.uk/Sabre-5249.htm

Or finally: http://www.sussex-model-centre.co.uk/Twister+Bell+47-5377.htm

Look for a model flying club in your area and have a chat with them. You are going to need help to fly any sort of RC plane anyway or it's a bin-bag job.

Search their data base for a local club.

As a former RC flyer i can tell you that the way to go without loosing the chopper/plane and still do it by your self is to get a radio that can be used with a RC sim......fly the winther months and make your maiden flight at spring

These sims are good....and if your country doent have laws with electrical RC flying stuff...you just find a big grassy spot with no houses within 700m and fly.....But doent buy anything that isnt easy to fix after a chash and doent buy stuff that costs to mucth in spare parts.....

the ones im flying with is from here

The nitro ones i have used was home build

But the stuff from above link is pretty good....werry easy to asamble...pretty cheap for beginners stuf...and can be repaired pretty quick to

my 2 cents
