Hello friends,

Today, finally I received the news that my rc air force was unloaded at Santos Harbor. It took 2 long months to arrive, now I need to wait 15 days more for our customs to clear them...

I have been checking everything about rc here in Brazil and my first impressions are:

*They are very organized, in a city like Sao Paulo you can find many groups dedicated to rc,
*Places to fly: This is a big problem here. Sao Paulo doesn't have a lot of places to fly, there are too many buildings, transit, and people, thus it lacks open spaces for rc practice, but, they manage to fly in stadiums parking lots, indoors at the Ibirapuera stadium, and in some soccer fields.
*The rc practice here have another problem: the security. You should never try to fly alone in some places here, they advise that you should have a group whenever you fly so the others can watch your six preventing assaults and robberies (so no more tests at fields alone for me). Some people here had all their equipment, car and money stolen while flying alone, or sometimes even groups had some equipment stolen...
*Prices: Planes, equipment, radios, batteries are way overpriced here, for instance:

Aurora 9 tx, price in Brazil R$1.639,80 (us$ 910.00) in the USA $359.00.
Battery 3s 2500mah in Brazil R$214,00 (us$ 119.00) in the USA $28.50.
Minimoa Glider in Brazil R$877.00 (us$ 487.00) in the USA $189.00.

Yes, everybody will face this problem one day, what I know is that on that day my number was up..., the plane is MIA on the woods.
But lesson learned...and now I'm equipped to do a better search on next time, bought the loc8tor. (hope will be no next time on this)
So, friends watch, have fun and learn something without loosing a plane...
On the movie you will see my plane disappearing (the gust blowed she away in seconds, no control) and some tests I did with the loc8tor:

A cute, very controllable mini-helicopter that will make happy beginners and experienced RC pilots everywhere.
The SkyLark 4ch coaxial RTF, comes with one Lipo battery 145ma, and a TX that requires 6 AA Batteries (not included). The fuselage is inspired on the MBB BO-105 with a paint scheme that reminds the real Red Bull 105 (no decals).
The small aircraft is easy to control, and will give to beginners a chance to start the hobby with little worries, while the more experienced pilots can enjoy the opportunity of keeping the skills sharp during the winter.
Skylark join two very pleasant features: it is crash-resistant and affordable. it is perfect for indoors, and you can fly her in the comfort of a living room. The size and weight of this mini helicopter donít cause scratches in the furniture or walls.
