when you start including exact product names in your posts, more might still come
anyway, those new models, are all for the kids right?

how many can you fly at the same time will be your next challenge

RC heli is never a toy .... warning signs.
At about $400 apiece kids have to ask daddy for money.

Lots of good RC heli pilots in EU. Well, the computer transmitter could program six models.

Model plan and heli are very similar to PC ....... they are all made in China and Taiwan.

Depends on your eyesight; to me I can't see it after about 40 meters away. But, the receiver and radio could reach out 300 to 500 meters while others are even farther out.

Flying fix wings are different, they are much bigger.

At my sister's house, after a family gathering ... my nephew took the pics using Canon SLR/zoom and long range flash. Taken at around 9PM right after a rain storm.

First two pics = FireFox 200, new product sample from ELE. Not being sold yet. Heli product review!!!
