Hi guys.
What are your opinions about these two helis?

What is the best for a beginner?
Can the century airwol fuselage fit on them?

Thanks

I can not get the links to work... I recommend (I have one)...a HummingBird V3 from century (www.centuryheli.com). For $260 you get a 95% RTF kit with Hitec radio, traing gear, and crash kit. They fly well and hover well. Lots of cheap parts, easy to mod, and lots of help on this forum. (And the Airwolf fuselage will fit)

Durable, will take a good beating with minium damage.

I'd go with the DragonFly or the HummingBird ATIS suggested, parts are easier to find and get then the COLCO Thunder Bird or the Smartech Aero Hawk. You may want to check out your local hobby shop to base what your going to buy.
Go with the one they have replacemnet parts for that way you wont have to deal with mail order. But if you do have to deal with it I'm sure most here can send you into the right direction on where to get the parts from.

By the way the links did work they were just SLOW to load even for my cable connection.
