Dear readers,

Having a Hughes 500e coming together in the next few weeks i would like to try a different aspect to scale heli flying. I"ve located a bambi bucket on a shop website at wait for it..........£249.99!!!!!!!!!!!! Absolute bargain if your a lottery winner, so im wondering if another company worldwide makes and sells one of these.

Thanks for your time.

Dear brokenlink,Jestrr,Drtim,Copter Doctor,

Thank you the above mentioned for your response to my bambi bucket request. Im going to look into them further to get a better understanding of them. I didnt realise that they were servo operated, so the thought of me hovering over water at a scale event in the UK (LHC) with me at the controls is possibly a recipe for a heli to do some underwater dancing. Again thanks for your time everyone on this subject.

No Problem, the most important thing about flying a bucket or any type of sling load, is to remember, fly the helicopter, not the load/bucket. keep your eye on the heli and use your perifial(i'm not sure how to spell that and its too early in the morning to try) vision on the bucket/load.

I've been wanting to fly a bucket for a while. I need a Jetranger or Huey for that though. Wouldn't look too good on the 222 or the Cobra I don't think.

Actually I like this one

I've seen a photo of this cobra with a bambi bucket.

But that would make my Cobra a lover, not a fighter

You're not a "pilot" if you fly an RC helicopter. Sorry to crush your dreams #HardTruth
