RE: Cricket What Year?

Actually, It's a GMP Cricket. I remember they didn't fly very well. Underpowered, fixed pitch....etc. It's most likely 1980 to 1983 model would be my guess. The engine looks to be maybe an OS .19...

RE: Whats 2.4Ghz all about?

I haven't tried it with the FAAST system, as I'm not a Futaba person. I don't think I've even seen the Futaba 2.4 yet. I wouldn't try it in an expensive plane, or my case in a helicopter. I can't...

RE: T-rex 600 good for a beginner?

My philosophy is simple and has worked for me. "Buy the best you can afford at the time". As with most things, you get what you pay for. The less expensive T-Rex will still be a nice heli to learn...

RE: T-rex 600 good for a beginner?

While my 450 SE V2 is the top of the line T-Rex, all that bling isn't really needed or even desirable if you are just starting out. The metal parts look cool, are strong and resist flexing, but the...
