Re: What's a good R/C helicopter kit for a newbie ???

The Hawk Sport does seem like a good beginner helicopter, and great price to
match! Are gas-powered helis the best for beginners? I would think
electric-powered helis are lower maintenance machines, although the gas
models provide more realism. Whats the main differences between gas &
electric powered helis?

Thanks.....TJM
