Dear All,
I am a beginner in RC helis. I am planning to buy an Ornith 46 of robbe, what do you think about this kit? I am a bit worried about the materials used in this kit, may I ask is it strong enough? what kind of material does the kit made of? Is it the same material as Nova Cuatro? Also, apart from the size, what is the difference between Ornith and the others (such as millennium 60, Nova, etc)? What is CCPM?
Please reply and many thanks,
elsyau

Ornith

Hi, not sure why you have to Worry.

for the price you pay you get a very nice heli, and its perfect to train you, because spares are avaliable from Europe and very cheap.

This is not a heli mad in Germany, but it doesnt matter, because Robbe are behind it, and they have full range of parts to support it.

Hope it helps

Janek is right, Ornith is made for Robbe by another source, but for me there is no big difference, because the support is from Robbe.

As for location, yes, its important to fill your profile so we can advise..
if there is a Dealer of Robbe in your country, it should be ok, you should have all parts delivered.

What about the Kyosho Caliber 30?
Many thanks,

I personally would not go with the ornith anyway: it's more expensive than a raptor 50, comes with a motor that is not worth a cent and will not fly as good as the raptor or the sceadu.
It's probably something you can learn to fly with but as soon as you progress a little bit you'll find that it's not up to your desires.

I'd go with a raptor or sceadu evo 50.
you can find spare parts everywhere and the price is lower.

I was in Hong Kong a while ago and I think the Sceadu would be your best choice. I personally would go for the 50 size because the actual 30 and 50 are the same heli but with different size engines and blades. Hirobo is definately the most dominent brand in Hong Kong. You can get parts from Radar, Waigo and Goodtech. I went to winning and they have all of the parts for Raptor but they looked as if they were a bit behind the times, nearly everything I asked for they didn't have. They were meant to be Hitec dealers but only had a few servo there which were out dated anyway.

I also have go a Sceadu 50 and think it is a great heli and would buy another one over the Raptor. A friend of mine just bought a raptor 50 and for some reason the engine is very hard to tune and one of the belt pulleys lasted only a few flight before it exploded. He assures me the belt wasn't too tight.

I might take back the bit about the engine being hard to tune, I had a go at it on Saturday and it wasn't a problem tuning wise. The Raptor looked pretty good. I couldn't have a fly because he was a different mode than me but the heli seemed to be pretty light and had a really good climb out rate.

Robbe Ornith is a good helicopter. I have been buddy boxing a beginner through his first circuits, nose in, circles in front of himself, stall turns etc - in all types of weather. Very stable and reliable helicopter, and easy to work on. Soon to start auto training, which the model also does well. Initially we flew with kit wodden blades, but have now upgraded those, everything else is left stock.

Regards,
Kev

Hi guys,

i have to admit what funky3d says, i have an ornith myself and i think it's a perfect beginner machine!
It flies very easy!
And if the time for you is come that you made so much progress that you fly around your circuits and start doing manouevers the ornith is'nt able to do, you won't be flying your first helicopter anymore for a long time!
And about the engine, it's not super but mine has allready a lot of flights and it's still running very good, and it's very easy to tune! Just don't abuse it, but use it!

Best Regards,
Gio.

It sure is a fine model but the point is that you can buy a better machine for a lower price.
both the evo or the raptor will outperform the ornith.
If you have to put your money in a heli why paying more to have less?
if you really like the model or if you want to stick with your favorite brand that's another question... but if you're just looking for the equipment to start with I don't think the ornith will be the best choice.

just my .2 cent
