RC people.. Magic Rat... - November 21, 2011, 01:16 PM

Do any of you fly RC Heli's??

Im looking at getting a mid size (26 in about...) Heli to play with and possibly attach either a gopro or contour too for some snowboarding footage this year..

I don't need anything crazy.. also want to stay sub $100 in price range.

Anyone??


ay ya yay

Carlo Gixxernoob flies...not sure about helis though.

And Loosetooth is an RC pilot, but also not sure about helis.

And if you've never flown RC before, helis are ridiculously stupid to control. No way you can just pick one up and become a pilot.

Sounds like a cool ass idea! Good luck.

That's good. Those things are hard as shit to fly. I bought one of the 150$ nicer mini ones and broke it within an hour. Thing still doesn't fly right.

No way are you going to find any Heli for under even $400.00 that will be stable and powerful enough to carry a go pro or contour. Maybe buy one of those cheap keychain HD cams and strap it to an cheaper heli instead.

I've got an eSky Honey Bee that I flew once, crashed, bought all the replacement parts for (and some spares) and never touched again.
No idea if it would carry a gopro.
Interested? Make me an offer.

Take out some personal injury insurance for when you annihilate some snowboard dude off the side of the mountain.

ive been messing around with them for a couple years off and on... my dad had the same idea recently (never flown before) so he got a little blade 120 sr and wantes to strap a keychain cam to it... he still hasnt managed to get it off the ground. part of his problem is that he is a tinkerer and wants to spend time understanding and experimenting with the heli.

just understand that you will not learn how to fly within a day or two, it can take up to 10+ consecutive days of doing a little at a time to get there.

in terms of go pro... that might be a bit heavy for the smaller helis but a good heli to learn on would be any fixed pitch electric heli with an open space and lots of patience.

eflite's blade series are good products

p.s. the higher and larger end eflite blade 450 helis go for about $500 ready to fly and could carry a little weight but still unsure about a gopro addition to them


let's f*cking rage!

If you want to trust your GoPro with a $50 helicopter go for it but dont be surprised when it crashes and breaks the camera.
