Default Tired of flying sim?

Tired of flying sim or playing PC games, I just go build some helicopters. I know something about electronics, radio transmission, mechanical work and "chips" with soldering iron, super glue, plier, screw drivers and a pair of steady hands ..... I build and mod.















I finished building the last one (smallest, little more than 12" long) this morning. Test flew it, trimmed the setup and it is ready.

Heli is the tuff to fly; fixed wing is much easier. When you have engine/motor or aileron problem you could shut off and glide it down. Heli will drop like a rock. Rudder control is always running while you don't have to touch rudder for fixed wings. Harder to be a good mechanic and pilot both at the same time.

Fuselage that would fit on three of the helis. But, they get heavy and less fun for some.

Yes, Airwolf ..... with retract wheels.

It will add 30-40% total all-up-weight to the heli reducing flight time for the look.
