$69 BNF E-Flite Rescue Tandem Heli With Batt And Charger !

AMAINHOBBIES reduced the BNF version of the E-Flite Tandem Rescue Heli from $129 down to $69. If you ever were curious on flying these dual bladed Copters this is a great bargain !

Mine arrived last night and maidened close quarters living room, piece of cake to fly if you've flown any Coaxials. Has a touch lean to the right on lift off as many helis, then up and its a smooth ride ! Long Yellow Banana Shape with all these blades rotating is a delite to behold ! Am I excited, you bet !

Managed a brief clip on this bargain flyer:

$69 BNF E-Flite MCX Rescue Tandem Helicopter RC Stable Extra Blades Fun (0 min 17 sec)


AMAINHOBBIES Link, Limited Quantities:

No, I'm not the seller for this fun heli, just love a bargain !

Also note BNF comes with it all, battery, even charger, just supply a Spectrum Transmitter as the DX5, DX6, DX7, even MCX.

I Flew this one with the basic MCX Transmitter and Handled Beautifully !

One of our local flyers ordered one as well, fun ahead !

Flown this fun flyer several times in the living room now, can verify its quite stable as coxials go, something else to see these twin main rotors go ! Mine turns easily either direction, tho some reports of it having issues, corrected by simply twisiting the flexible body oposing direction.

Again mine does lean to the right on lift off, simply correct with momentary held left stick then release as it rises things steady quickly, makes smooth turning circles with ease and can nearly spot land this one. During manuvers sometimes requires touch more throttle to keep level, the norm for these birds.

Thanks for the link. I found a better deal (under $60.00 w/ shipping) on ebay (Eflite Dealer) I purchased two of them. The Eflite Tandem Rescue is discontinued now, hence that's why you can score one on the cheap.

I should have both of them by this Friday (I hope) It's a good looking tandem IMHO.

Looks like a great deal! Can this heli be bound to the stock Tx that came with the mSR RTF set?

Mine came in today from the eBay vendor (NY to MA. 2 days) Excellent tandem! Scored 2 of them for $114.89 w/ shipping ($57.44 each) A blast to fly. A little different from the normal co-ax helis, but I'm getting use to it! Also...I picked up the discontinued mCX-S300 today as well. She'll be @ my house by early next week. I love the look of her! Trying to collect all Eflite helicopters! Doing well so far:

mCX2 RTF & 1 each & one BNF (2 total my favorite)
mCX Tandem Rescue BNF (2 each)
MSR RTF (1 each) Still in the box (took out 4-1 Charger)
120 SR RTF (1 each) Still in box (Waiting for better weather)
mCX S300 RTF (1 each) Great little heli like the mCX2 (ebay for $99.00)

Here is where I fell off the Eflite wagon....I purchased 2 each of the E-Sky Lama V4's. Both are "tweaked" from Boomtown Hobbies. I liked them more then the CX2! I know I'll score a CX2 as times goes by. The E-Sky Lama V4 is really a CX2 anyway..They share so many parts! There you have it! I even scored a Eflite T-Shirt off of eBay today! Eflite ROCKS!

Excellent you did very well.

Believe AMAINHOBBIES is running out or did run out of the Rescue Tandem, but not too bad a price $79 at Hobbyzone for the BNF Bind and Fly version. Still a bargain from a reputable dealer.

HobbyZone is my favorite Eflite dealer. They are usually never out of stock of Eflite products. Plus they ship fast!

Absolutely they are great. Note this one is likely to be a discontinued item, so eventually the supply will be gone. If you want one don't wait too long. Its again very stable for me, and being a coaxial a bargain flyer for the beginner as well.

Believe Todds Models may carry the Tandem, ordered several items and is an excellent seller, sign in to get the best price, is quick on shipments.

http://www.toddsmodels.com/EFLH2500_...p/eflh2500.htm

Shown $99 but includes everything RTF READY TO FLY, transmitter, charger, battery. Even the transmitter includes batteries, still a nice buy, as was again $179 !

Wrote a brief review on Todds site, this model deserves it, love mine todate.
