Fact: Any landing I make and can re-use the heli without a complete rebuild is akin to the Eighth Wonder Of The World.

All recite the Prayer to the God of Replacement Parts:

"But I did it in the sim........"

FACT:

looking at an RC Helicopter, whether its flying or stationary, makes my pupils get really big, and makes my heart beat a little faster.

I love Ramen and could eat it 5days a week, even after 20 years of it. the only reason I don't is because it is terribly unhealthy. When I do eat it though I drain the water add a small amount of butter and sprinkle the flavor pack over the drained buttered noodles, Yummie. Also you can take the strained cooked noodles refrigerate, then stirfry with meat and veggies, Yummie again, ps don't forget to always sprinkle the flavor pack on top.

A 600 size bird has a tip speed of about 330mph at 2000 rpm (let that hit you in the head)

'That'll leave a mark!'
Fact - Heli's don't have 'elevator' or 'rudder' control. It's actually 'aft' or 'forward' cyclic. For tail rotor, it's referred to as either 'left' or 'right' pedal.

A 600's rotor blades (at 2000 rpm) have approximately 450 Joules of rotational kinetic energy.
Thats roughly the same as a 9mm handguns muzzle energy. each blade.

A carbon fibre blade can easiy slice through an alloy tail boom and belt.. Oddly enough a carbon blade can also chop off a cf tail boom!!
Go on try it yourself you know you want to :thumbup: (will or have can be substituted as required)

RC helis are infact a super cheap hobby, as long as you leave them in the box :YeaBaby:
