Does it have a little cox .19 in it or something? Bet it'll barely hover but stil VERY cool if you are a nitro fan.

Finally a nitro you can fire up in the living room without getting those strange looks.

The Rx pack is about the size of the flight pack that's supposed to be there. Talk about shoveling crap against the tide.

Would love to see a video of it action, though.

Not only nitro, but FBL too.

Does nothing else strike you on these pics? There seems to be a mini 3G in there with cables going directly to the sensor box

I'd definitely get a flyable nitro 250. That engine has to sound funny!

My best guess is that that is a Cox TeeDee .020 engine.
Output of around 25,000 RPM.
I have seen a throttled version of that engine.
Cox did once upon a time make a free flight heli with a Peewee .020 for power, It had a 4 blade rotor of around 16 inch dia. The Peewee had a lot less power than the Teedee.

This might actually be feasible.

I think I had one of those, it went up.....ran out of fuel and came down. That was in the 60's as I recall. It's getting harder and harder remembering back that far.

Yup, that's the one. I thought it was a blast back then.

Other than the Picco Z I blame that heli for my addiction!

I got one for christmas back in 1998 at a "JR" in Burlington NC.

Had a tiny nitro engine. The blades didn't really create the lift. It is similiar to the "Twirly Bird" RC heli from the 70s. It had a small prop connected to it and the engine rotated with the larger rotors. The rotors were there to autorotate for landing. Thing was a BLAST! I was 13 at the time I think. I thought Id be smart and tape some pennies to the nose and put way too much nitro in it and BYE BYE she went!
