29 Oct 08 - This is a superb model that looks great (very scale apart from the rotor heads) and flies well too.  It has 3 channels mixed to effectively give collective pitch by rotor speed control, cyclic pitch (fore-aft speed difference) and yaw control (clockwise-anti-clockwise speed difference).  The lower blades are fixed position.  The upper blades are on a teeter mount and controlled by the fly-bar to give very good stability.  It is quite manoeuvrable but the lack of cyclic roll control is limiting.  Great fun at the office or in your living room.  It could be flown outdoors but it won't cope with any appreciable wind.
