Hello,

Sorry if this is the wrong place to do this but I wasn't sure where to go. I'm a filmmaker based in the USA and am looking for a large scale RC Helicopter that looks like some kind of search and rescue model for a film I'm making. It's paid and paid travel may also be involved. Please let me know if you or someone you know might be interested. Thanks in advance!

Hilarion,

If you are serious, it may help to add more details like: location? How much time it will take? What is the pay? What time of year?

Thanks for your reply. To be honest, most of the production will revolve around the pilot. Since I know the large-scale models are almost impossible to put on an airplane, I'll have to find a location that is driving distance from the pilot's home. The only thing is that the scene takes place on a mountain with snow on it so it could be in California, Utah, upstate New York...anywhere as long as it's close to mountains and shot in the winter.

As for payment, I'm looking to spend around $350 for the shoot day. The scene is only one shot so it won't be a long day....mostly setup time

Interesting.....

Well I have a Hirobo Lama SA 315 helicopter. That would be perfect.
The only thing not quite to scale is the rotor head. Are you in Austin, TX. ????? I live near Beaumont, TX there are certainly no mountains here.... good luck on your search

Approximately how large of a model are you looking for for this shot? (length in feet, or scale) I am guessing the bigger, the better?

How tight will the shot be? (i.e. how much detail will be visible on the model in the shot)

Not much detail at all but you're correct....the bigger the better since I'll be using forced perspective to try and pass it off as a reel helicopter. But I can also use some special effects to hide anything that gives it away as a model later.

A Hirobo Lama model might be too small (if it's like the one online I found that is about 18 inches). If I'm mistaken, please let me know!

I have a feeling that Hilarion has no clue about model helicopters!!!

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

How about something like these:

The Blackhawk is 5ft in length, the UH-1N is about 4ft, 6in.

Ha! You're absolutely right. This is a completely foreign world to me haha.

Those photos look perfect! Are you based in Colorado, co_rotorhead? I'm trying to find a way to send you a message off the forum to get more info but I can't find out how. Are you able to message me?

P.S. I'm also a novice at forums

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!
