Hopelessly hooked
It takes allot of practice to fly a heli scale like and really get the "scale look" you want. the way you fly has allot to do with the way it looks.....that's the true challange of scale heli's. each full scale heli has a different way of flying and capturing that is tough. I say learn to fly and then try scale. I've put many hours into the craftsmanship of my scale birds. My dumb thumbs need more practice so I mostly fly pod and boom for scale flying practice. Micro heli's simply make flying "scale like" even more challanging. Its very hard to setup a micro to fly smoothly....add the weight of a fuselage and it changes...you learn again. Very cool when done right though....very cool.

Hi all you scale enthusiasts!

...So, I'm puttering around the 'net when I happened upon this thread. I'm honored that you guys mentioned my company (thanks Ben & CzechSix). Too bad I'm a couple of months too late for when the thread was most active.

Anyway, Mite E Copter is hopefully just what you guys are looking for! I'm burning the midnight oil preparing for a Summer product launch, where I'll be starting with:
1:24 AH-1z Cobra
1:24 S-76
1:20 EC-135
1:20 EC-635
1:24 RAH-66 Comanche
1:20 & 1:24 Full body pilot and crew figures

All flybarless. All purpose-built. Clear windows. Full cockpits. Opening doors. Retracts. Elevated tails. Rotorheads that spin the "right way". No mods, just assemble the kits.

The weather's warming up quick, I'd better get back to work!

Mite E Copter
