The helibaby? Riff with tons of issues that never got solved. There are now a couple 5 and 600 sized cp coaxials being marketed out of a few sites with plastic based frames, and their own fbl controllers. I haven't heard from any reliable independent sources how they perform. These days the ave price for any 600 sized reg cp heli can easily hit $2500 using quality components. Just the Sk720 Black and Gps module are 1k, and to my knowledge there are several thousand out there being used on helis from the 250 size on up. We don't want to talk about how much I had to sacrifice to build my 800 and maintain it. As a fairly poor guy living on SSDI, I made some serious choices and lived pretty lean to pull it off. Guys like myself live for those rare 70/80% off sales.

Hey Luv, Good to see you posting man. I hope you are feeling well these days. Ya know Luv, I just could not get into the big choppers. Don't get me wrong. I still fly my V4, mcX and 120SR. Like you, it was the money graduating up. I'm also disabled with a fixed income. Sucks to be us

Right now, I'm into planks (easy to fix) and,,,...some boating

Got an airboat that screams. Will have vids soon either on snow or water

And a 39" tug. Both boats will be set up for rescue. IE: (If one of our planes go down in the water) Gonna check the air boat out in the snow very soon. It's too deep right now here in Boston

Mike.

You don't need any boats. You and most of us need snow cats of some kind; maybe a tank or two for the yard. According to Down East Dickering( History Channel), that's yad. With all the snow you got, I hope the ca was in the ban, old boy.

Jack, you forgot the "h's."

It's, "pahk ya cah in the Hahvad yahd."

Geez, New Yorker's (not NYC).

Did you know Bostonians and people from NYC can tell each other apart by our accent? To other people we both sound alike...which we don't

Bahston and New Yahk are a little too rich for my blood, boss. Neither place has a decent bahn to put the cahs in. What good are they? On a bad weather day, you need the bahn to fly in too, don't chuh know?

Makes me want to buy a tabletop machining center and build it with you.

For what it would cost for something table top, you can buy the equivalent full size mill, lathe, etc. There are plenty of places selling off used equipment. We don't make anything in this country anymore!
