Flying in Italy??
Just curious if anyone here flies in Italy.

I will be transferring there in November to the island of Sardinia and would like to take my helis with me assuming there is fuel to be had and a place to fly.

Anyone have info?

Excellent,

I'm sure I won't have too much problem except for finding time to fly.

Just out of curiosity, what do you guys use for fuel over there and what does it cost? We have it nice for gas prices for cars (benzine, right?) compared to prices there, so I'm wondering how that affects model heli fuel.

Also, what frequency band do you guys use? I'm looking at a 14MZ but want to make sure I can get a module to fly there.

Well for fuel we use coolpower but it's cheaper do our own mix. We buy Helimix for oil that is a mixture of different oil and it gives good performance and the engine is cold not hot like other type of oils. Of corse we use nitro and you can find it easily.
For benzine well it's not cheap we pay it about 1,3 euro/lt. We have taxes.
Take a look to your pm i posted to you some sites.

For frequency we use 40mhz or also 35mhz.
