Ecoman Dragonfly (Hughes 300)

This is a sub-micro sized fixed pitch 2 channel helicopter utilizing a separate tail motor to drive the tail rotor. It is flown with an included infra-red transmitter which is also used to charge the heli.

As unbelievable as it is, this helicopter can really fly on 2 channels!  I picked this thing up at Fry's Electronics for about 20 bucks.  I didn't expect much since it is a 'toy class' 2 channel heli but once I installed the batteries in the included transmitter and spooled it up, I was truly amazed!  this this is incredibly stable and is a blast to fly!  Due to it's light weight and low mass, when it does 'crash' nothing breaks.  Click here for a video of my first flights with this heli.

Rotor diameter: 5.25" (133mm)

Length: 7" (178mm)

Gross flying weight: 0.42 oz. (12g) yields flights of about 7-9 minutes per charge

E-Flite Blade CX

Sold

This is a counter-rotating fixed pitch 4 channel helicopter utilizing two main rotors and no tail rotor. It is flown with a 4 channel 72 MHz transmitter.  The counter-rotating design allows for slow response which is ideal for learning to fly R/C helicopters.  The drawback to it's design is that it is not very maneuverable in breezy conditions so flights are limited to indoors or outside on very calm days.
