Saw these while looking at batteries.
My experience may be well dated but I would expect to pay $300 or well more for something like this.
Just add a controller and glow heat thingy.
Are they any good?
Looks like you need your own remote and they are running on fuel.
What type of petrol does it takes?
With the advent if Lipo batteries and brushless motors, nitro is pretty much dead for casual usage.
I think they both have their advantages, I personally prefer nitro to electric…
Yep, each to their own. I built up a pretty standard Tamiya DF-03 a few years back, upgraded to a cheap Brushless motor kit and powered it with a cheap LiPo pack… didn't even upgrade the bog standard AM radio gear! It was ballistic and lasted around 45-60 minutes with the throttle 100% as much as I could. I actually got BORED before the battery died! Fitted a speedo, calibrated it three times because I couldn't believe what speeds it was doing… up to 101kph! See it here: http://youtu.be/eF_E65RM0Y4
Electric is now stupidly fast and getting cheaper by the day but nothing beats the noise or smell of Nitro ;) No good for suburban backyards though.
You guys are taking in a different language which I will need to do some more reading.
Ha yeah, feel free to ask any questions DonkeyKong. I'm out of that hobby now but I should be able to answer most of your Qs.
Buy the $15 2.4ghz TX/RX it works really well .
I think this is normal pricing - not really a "deal". Still everything at the King is like a permanent sale it's so good. I've spent thousands on planes and sailboats from this site.
Any suggestions for a chopper?
I could use one around the house.
