Well, maybe buying a #39 at pinnacle for 99$ (the ARF with nothing but the heli frame and blades apparently) and then get good parts for the rest (what? motor, servors, reciever, transmitter) would be a good way to go. It's suprising that I never see these additional needs easily checked off in a shopping cart.
Anyway, how much more to getting it flying, assumming I can get it put together? I'm hoping I could do it for another 150-$200. Any chance at all? I've seen 6 ch trans for less than $100, but never on the same sites with the helis. What additional parts would you recommend?
Otherwise, maybe I should get a Blade CP down the street and learn to fly, then figure out if I should eventuallly get a Trex xl something something and spend another 5-600 bucks to loft a good camera system. And get a cool shiny box of course!
Or, maybe one of them honeybee 2 cps etc. I've seen for $40-50 bucks less than the Blade CP, but on-line. I should be able to lift my wireless blimp video camera with a 9volt in it, with a blade or a honeybee 2 shouldn't I?
Total newbie, try not to laugh, I'll crash later I know. But thanks for your help. [sm=drowning.gif]
