Yet another newbie wondering what to buy...


Okay folks, here's one I can see has come up a million times, but I'm gonna' ask regardless.... Bottom line: I want an electric heli. I've never flown one, and I've only flown planes about 5 times. Granted I feel confident in my flying abilities, but I have no idea what to buy. I like the idea of a micro-electric (especially the 4-channel radio part). I've narrowed it down to the Piccolo, the Hornet and the LMH. I've heard the Pic is strong, but not so great to fly, I've heard the Hornet flies great, but it's a pain to repair, and I've heard the LMH is strong and great to fly, but all I see on the website is a Gas version, no electric. Can someone PLEASE help me sort this out?

I have it on good authority that www.velocitymodels.com will soon have a conversion kit for the LMH and an Aveox motor. This would be a great setup for you. The way everyone converts it now is to use the Aveox motor and directions from the article here on the ezone, you can find the conversion article in the review section.
