I have a hummingbird and i am absolutely fed up spending lots of money and time moding the helicopter just to fit new parts. I got the Airwolf kit and it didnt fit in anyway whatsoever.

therfore i am looking at changing the brand of micro heli. I am looking at the Piccolo Pro. Is this a better idea or not. How about going to slightly bigger electric helicopters?

any Advise is welcome

Depends on what you plan to do later on? If you plan on just flying electric helicopters then I would suggest going with a bigger electric helicopter like the Logo 10 or maybe the new Logo 14 that's going to come out next month or even bigger, like the new MA Ion-X. I can tell you the bigger electric helicopters fly very good and stable even in wind. They are definitly not cheap, in fact they cost the same or more then their nitro counter part. I've already spent over $4,000.00AUD ($3,000.00 USD) on my Logo 10 so far. That includes kit, brushless motor, ESC, UBEC, blades, carbon frame, carbon boom, carbon fins, digital servos, GY401 gyro, 4S4P LiPo's, every Mikado upgrade they have, fiberglass canopy, etc. Take your time and think about what you want to do, so you don't waste any money buying something you don't want.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

well even not slighly...


Those µhelis make the promise you will be able to pilot in your house. Cool
But they seem not to hold their promises

The parts are so little, that it would be very expensive to make them strong and in the perfectly desired shape (these are called upgrades, but not alll are usefull)

I have an Eolo, and now that it flies, it's fun enough
But i wouldn't fly it in my house, to much headspeed.


Headspeed=stability=energy=need for well fitted parts
Low HS=poor control and stability, but could work with CA and tape

Now If you aim at an helectric heli, from what I have seen and head (never flew though), the Logo10 is a nice little machine (almost as big as a R30)

While I've only made a couple of "test hops" with my Zoom 400 so far it sure looks VERY stable for such a relatively small heli - might be worth considering.

(Got mine from Al's Hobbies for £149)

I have been looking at that one. Looks good and has good 3d abilities for later on

If I was to get a micro at the moment i'd get the Zoom too - read the comments Bob Johnson makes in the 'Fantastic Charmouth' thread in the main category about the Zoom but i'm sure they can be worked out,
