I believe it's AAVN60 here who is a distributor.

I think that guy was at Oshkosh. I suppose if you got hihg enough you could auto but I think this machine spends virtually all of it's time in the dead zone.

We have a turbine Mosquito in the area. It is so cool to hear it come by. However, I think I'd like to have at least an R22 around me. Experimental aircraft are one thing, I got close to biting on the Mini-500. For those that don't know, Dennis Fetters who now thank God only designed unmanned stuff got a lot of people hurt and left a lot of people holding a bag full of nothing for their money. When it comes to helis, I'd have to stay with non-experimentals.

Lets not unleash the passion and love to this hobby into getting ourselves killed by these full size micro unsafe helis.

isn't flying R/C heli good enough to have the adrenaline rush into our body?

or we need to go into more drama by emptying our current account and taking risks every time we step into one of them !?

I personally had enough adrenaline rush when it comes to R/C Heli. I dont know, it might be just me since I am an infant compared to some folks who happened to be in the hobby for more than 20+ yrs, and he is just keen for more !!

Scale life or no life !

For full scale, planks are still the least expensive way to go. Helis are too costly to be practical for anyone other than crooked CEOs and celebrities, or if you're a professional pilot and don't have to own your own equipment. The insurance requirements alone keep most other helis on the ground.

The mosquito is still intriguing, but the big concern there is the engine. It's some oddball thing that nobody really knows much about and it's performance and durability in the field is still kind of an unknown quantity:

Compact Radial Engines seems to be the only distributor, though I think the engine itself is Italian.

So could be a really expensive mistake if that engine still has bugs that haven't been found yet.

The turbine version is still relatively new and who knows what bugs still remain to be shaken out there. And fuel consumption is going to be a definite problem there too.

Gyros are a more practical alternative for rotary wing. They can do about 90% of what a true heli can do, but at a fraction of the cost. They offer a pretty high wing loading also, which makes them more manageable in wind and they're a lot easier to build and maintain. Some of the early problems with stability seem now to be well understood and fixed in modern designs.

I'd probably do the Magni M-16, if I were going to go that route..

If I win the lotto, I'm strongly considering the M-16...

I'm willing to try this one.
Have to ramp up my dumpster diving.

Ground crew to spot any potential problems.Check.
Honda motorcycle engine. Check.
Pilot shoes. Check.
Blades securely fastened. Check.
Exhaust properly directed away from pilot. Check.
Nose gear. Problem. (I would check that, in the interest of safety).
Otherwise looks good. Ready for take off.

Bikman, your picture of the "Kompress" helicopter with the passenger just rings a lot of alarm bells with me. It's tough to look at things like that and try to understand someone's logic for doing it.
