Micro Scale Helicopter
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hello,

Does anyone happen to know where i can get Micro (nano?) Scale RTF helicopters (non-coaxial)? Recently i came upon a Cobra RTF on Ebay, It's about 8.5" long and really beautiful.

I am wondering whether other models are out there (Black Hawk/Airwolf/Apache/Hughes/etc)?

I can find plenty of co-axials, but single-blade versions seem to be a rarity.

Please let me know if anyone happens to know the source. 8"-10" would be perfect. (under $100 would be great, since i am planning to collect a bunch for decorative purpose, and occasional flying)

Thank you so much.

PS: Here's a pic of the Cobra i got.

How about a Hughes type heli? Nine Eagles Bravo SX:

Also comes in various color schemes, so even better for a collector. :D

Besides the 2 color schemes mentioned here, there are 3 more...

Yes. I would love to add a Hughes in my collection. Where i can i find one, or do i have to build it :D

Very nice pics by the way.

This is the Nine Eagles Bravo SX, and you can buy it online, or perhaps even in a local hobby shop.

that cobra looks like a copy of the Walkera 4#3q. But the 4#3q has a battery tray under the fuselage, so that one in your first post looks better with out it.

Go to ebay, and search "single blade rc helicopter" it should pop up, but here's one that is going for $41 & free Shipping.

It's a beautiful heli. As for Nine Eagles Blade SR Hughes 500. i am out of luck. Most of the stores are OOS, but hopefully should be in stock in mid July at some online hobby shops.

The Nine Eagles is a 4 ch and one listed in above post is 3 ch. Big difference if you fly them. Depends on what you want. Many sellers of N./E online. mycart has them for $39.95+ postage.

That is true. I think the FP cobra is 2.5 or 3 ch. I use will it for mostly display only, so no regrets. I just find coaxials to be butt ugly. xheli has the same cobra for $19 coax: http://www.xheli.com/s108g.html

One thing with scale helis, these can be a pain to repair, so the simpler the better. I have a Walkera Airwolf on which both halfs of the fuselage is super glued. The only way to fix or replace a servo is to tear the fuselage to access the components.


By the way, what is mycart? Would it be possible to post a link. Thanks so much.

EDIT: Is this what you meant: http://www.myrcmart.com/rc-helicopte...-c-45_115.html

http://www.miracle-mart.com/store/in...oducts_id=7344

As for sub micro/palmsize scale bodies, there are various vendors that will sell you the body if you are willing and able to build it ...

Edit2:
Thanks for the link, but 3ch wont cut it for me, sorry ... :o

Thanks for the link. I am definitely interested in the Hughes 500 micro heli.

Here's another interesting link on the Mini Heli forum. Not sure what size these NE SOLOPROs are, but could be 300 or 250. Any idea whether these are available in stores now?

The Blackhawk is a new heli, not sure if it's already in the stores. As for the Hughes version, the Bravo SX, this vendor has some stock:

It's a deluxe package so you get a carrying case with the heli, and a wall charger, as well as spare blades and 2 batteries. They also have just the heli, so you could add a spare heli in a different color.

The Blackhawk(SOLO PRO 319) is a CP heli capable of some 3D stuff. Doesn't look like anyone is carrying it or has any pricing yet.

Wow. It has a lot to offer for something that is only 12" in size (it's FBL too). I hope NE dont price it like walkera multi-blade airwolf, which goes on eBay for $700-$800. Will be looking forward to it though.

#15 Wade1 Jun 07, 2012 07:14 PM

I'm keen on getting a black hawk also...but i'm betting its going to cost an arm and a leg. Please NE, don't make this model a stupid price !
