Ok Guys,

I'll ask the "old guard" here, what's the skinny on this "blast from the past"? Is it/was it "the thing to have" in the day? Just curious I see them mentioned with some form of mystique on the boards...

OK I'll spill it....

AS VERBAITUM....

"Hi J_Cunny

pretty much started the electric heli craze they were framebuilt by that I mean really weak nothing too them. They flew on a 90 degree swash with mechanical mixer. Oh and did I mention they flew on a brushed 600 buggy motor RC car motor usually the magnetic mayhem reverse. Oh and did I mention they flew on a 7-10cell C-Cell Nicad pack. They just went by the wayside with all the advances of technology. They finally released a brushless setup for it by the time it faded out. But we all owe the ECO8 a debt of gratitude for the german engineered start of electric helis. Me and dougie were the only ones I know that had one I never got past rads skidding around in the box on mine before I traded it off cause the parts to learn on it would of been too expensive. But it was a really fun kit to build yes I mean build."

That from Tryan2
