Differences between Hornet and Hummingbird

So you just want someone to hand over everything to you without having to put any of your own thought or research into it?

Differences between Hornet and Hummingbird

Try flying the stock heli first and then upgrading as you learn.

The biggest difference is that the Hornet is available in a collective pitch version in the stock box form. There are some great...

which electric starter????

Try a DeWalt 18Volt cordless drill. It has more than enough power, useable for other "stuff" at the field, useable at home, a torque setting to keep from cranking over a flooded crankcase and comes...

Check your fuel line to make sure it isn't kinking or becoming restricted during the high G maneuvers. It could be a simple as the tubing laying over on the carb nipple and restricting the flow...

Souped up Power Wheels? (not r/c)

The gear sets are awesome and very robust on the newer units. They're made to take a ton of abuse with a 100 lb max load rating. The weak point on the older gear sets was the plastic pinion gear on...

Corona online?

Buy it stock and do the upgrades after you learn how to fly. No point in having an upgrade attack if you haven't even learned how to fly it yet.

Bummed with my new Hacker!

How would the 300 motor have responded to the 3 cell E-techs? Although the voltage will probably fry it.

It is a little discouraging that you weren't able to achieve better results by just...
