Mat flys at our club and i've seen this heli in action. It is a promising design.

Hi,

Some technical details:

motor: a speed 400 class brushed motor. In the videoclip this motor was used.
battery: from the ground up this heli was designed for lipoly's.

Please contact http://www.promodels.be/ for more details.

The size is between a piccolo pro and a Eolo

Think I will move this to the Micro Heli forum. S400 power has fit there for some time now.

My 400 Class Brushless Micro-Heli.

That is a super sexy heli

Uses the more common design approach used by larger helis, excpet for the motor location,. Kinda wild! :cool:

I think the heli falls pretty fast when you try to land, the landing gear is a bit small (small footprint).
Cool lookin' heli!

I've now got one of these for approx. two months and comparing it to Hornet CP I'd say this is much more steady in hovering and somewhat easier to fly. It's also pretty crash resistant ;)

If somebody needs one or more info of it, I've got some of them + electronics in stock... mail me juha@sabefinland.com , located in Finland, Europe.

The heli is a bit bigger than hornet, the landing gear is a bit small bit since the rotor is pretty "wide" it's very easy to land anyway.

The swashplate is normal 90 degrees with Bell-Hiller -system, just like in bigger heli's. The motor is standard 380 and quite enough, but I think I'll try brushless soon.

This is quite a new model and probably it's not imported into US yet. Only a few dealers in Europe have this so far but it's coming into shops soon. We in our company have been lucky to be able to take part of the testing period since one of our suppliers is the manufacturer of this heli. That's whu we also have it already in stock... ;)

So, if somebody needs info of it, just let me know.
