Another shot of the goodies inside the Helizone T-Bird.


The itty-bitty swashplate on the Helizone Thunderbird. NOTE: I've knocked a swash-ball out of place...this thing is TINY, and my ham-fists are no match.

Helizone's Thunderbird, unwrapped.


Super-tiny swash servos on a 3-channel chassis. My prediction came true.

Syma's Top 5 Copters Together (1 min 6 sec)

Three channel helicopters, these are the five most popular models on the market. I made a short video so you can see them all together for size comparison.

Dang, this was fun.

Broken 3 Channel Fly Bar? (1 min 41 sec)

Tiny wire nippers work best for getting at these. Bag and tag!


And make sure you have the ball links on the proper sides- if the links no longer reach, you have the flybar upside-down.

I'm excited about all of the new helicopters coming out! And so many are now radio-controlled, which makes me really happy, because I like flying outside on calm evenings. It's also nice to fly during commercials, without shutting off the big TV to avoid glitches (IR copters and today's LED TV's do not mix well. there's too much IR "noise" in the copter's control spectrum coming from them).


My Costco Bladerunner Interceptor Helicopters are over a year old now, and still fly beautifully! I just can't be happier with a low cost 3 channel heli, folks. They, like my Syma S022 Big Chinook helicopter, have proven to be wise investments. None of them have broken or needed parts, period.

Tons more videos going up on the Stepankneck Youtube channel, you few who are subbed may want to un-sub to avoid getting buried in up-load notices: I've been producing MUCH video in my absence here, and will be uploading more than a few...

Here's a nice video showing how to take apart a small helicopter completely.

You'll need an airsoft MP7, but you won't need to give ME anything- this pattern (NOTE: trace, and CUT) is now 100% FREE. Just come get a copy, wouldja?

WHY? I want to put these all over the planet, but I don't wanna get outta my recliner to do it. These are SUPER simple to make, don't let my fancy machined copy fool you. These few evening's work will reward you with a neat item to show off or use in CQB airsoft Battle- It's small enough. Want a bigger airsoft gun? Just scale up the j-pegs, print a bigger one.
