@jambalaya, aye the old Chippies were ace in the Air Cadet days. We flew from Cambridge and that's why I built the models. I started with an ARTF one that was a bit, errr, shit. I had it fly away when I got a bit distracted by......a......bull! The farmer used to put cattle in the field where our patch was and had introduced a bull into the equation... Run and fly?
I bet that model is a beast with a .90 in it....not to mention heavy on the nose. The little Extra is a copy of a laser cut kit I had. The original has a little .15 2s in it and still flies lovely. The copy had a .26 FS until I failed to pull out of a full power inverted flat spin.... The replacement is in progress
I find helis harder to fly and much more damaging to crash. Mine are all .30 sized ic mind you, not indoor toys
