Eurocopter Ecureuil AS350 Gyro 3-Channel Outdoor Radio Controlled Helicopter
Small radio controlled helicopters
are all well and good, but sometimes we all like to get our hands on something more substantial. The RC Ecureuil AS350 chopper is about as close as you can get, at twice the overall length of your everyday infra-red models: 13.25 inches, excluding rotors, itís a whopper chopper. Whatís more, itís licensed by full-size chopper manufacturer Eurocopter, with hobby-grade detail that utterly raises the bar in design. This ready to fly helicopter takes flying to another level, distinguishing the RC Eurocopter Ecureuil AS350 from the rest: its ability in performing outdoors is absolutely second-to-none. A flashing red power indicator and bright blue LED searchlight means youíll never lose sight, and the piezo auto-stability system allows you to really show off those flying skills.
Of course three-channel digital proportional radio control may sound like a bit of a mouthful, but itís so much more than mere jargon. You can take off, hover and descend again, before leaping forwards or backwards. Turn left or right, and embrace sheer ease of manoeuvrability. With a range of 25 metres, youíll have it whizzing above and beyond you in no time at all.
Intimidated yet? You shouldnít be. The chopper comes with an instruction manual and DVD, to help you get to grips with your new machine. An innovative flight trainer can also be attached to the undercarriage of the Eurocopter Ecureuil AS350, making take-off and landing both smoother and safer. Once youíve got the hang of the RC Vortex you can remove these flying aids to take full control.
First-time or not, what are you waiting for? Youíll grab a whole ten minutes of flying action, and itíll be ready to rip again in less than half an hour.
