Ok, I'm going to date myself here....
I think I got this in the early 60's or late 50's...

I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread

Wish I still had it.... At least I couldn't crash it

If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

An Ikarus Eco 8.

I still have one and I flew it yesterday. The craziest thing is it flys on my TREX 450 packs and I get about 6.5 mins out of it with 470mm blades? And yeah there are some flips and roll in there too

Well Im doing a small mod to it today...putting the 120deg brackets on it for proper servo geometry

I started with a schluter Moskito back in 1999. Hovered it for a month then moved on to a huge 60 schluter Magic then to a ergo 60 all in 3 months.

The good old days of cheap fm radios and ballbearing gyros

Ikarus Picolo... Fixed pitch and a broken gyro that I didn't know about until much later. I bought it used off eBay for 350$.

Funny thing is, you can buy a brand new Honey Bee for 70$ and it flies far better.

Second was a Hirobo Sceadu 50.

Ikarus Eco 8 in 2001. Flew for 8-9 seconds and then crashed.
Dropped helis until 2009 and thought about fixing and flying it again. Took a good look at how fragile it looked and decided it was not worth the effort.
