Done gliders, planes, boats and large scale boats need a new passion so why not a helicopter. Having played with a few coaxial heli's it was the right time to move on to something a little more challanging. Why the Bell 429, 500 size helicopter? :-) Well after doing some research it was down to going for a flybarless heli, or one with. Looked at a range of models currently available and read a review in Airborne Mag, it was so well written and informitive that I knew then the Bell429 would probablly be my next pet project. I was getting all geared up to building a heli from scratch and the fact it was a nice scale model added to my enthusiesum. So after finding a local Australian distributor I placed my order. About a week later my very well packed helicopter and new DX8 arrived. My only disapointment was that the heli was 90% built. Bugga! Decided that half the job has been done and the only concerlation was it had been put together by a very experienced model helicopter builder. Took me just 24 hours to get over that disapointment, then I smiled it means I will get my bird in the air sooner. Great! :-), first flight very soon i hope! :-)
