Great controlling ! No doubt !

But that copter is on the higher range of radio controlled helicopters.

That chopper is worth probably $400 + (just guessing) ...

Man, I would hate crashing that chopper doing stunts like that !!

probably more then that. I've seen the gas powered Raptors go for around $1,000. but this is electric. so not sure... but it must be more then $400. my little Blade CX2 indoor chopper was almost $200.

Those small IR helis are rather fun to fly even if there's not very hightech, and very little money when they break Also take a heck of a beating, but not a car

Yeah my sister got it for him. I've wanted to get one for a while but never broke down and bought one. Wish I could buy one of the bigger gas powered ones.

I would imagine there's a learning curve before you'd become proficient flying an RC chopper. I would certantly suggest to start out slowly before trying anything in that video , LOL.

I remember I got a Gas powered chopper back in the late 70's. It had no RC controls ! Just start the engine and stand back ! I got smart and tied a string to it to keep it from going too far. Needless to say, I didn't fly it much!

Yes, you best start out with something smaller. lol the single rotors are really hard to control.

i had a air plane version of that two string going to one wing facing me and flown it around 360 counter clockwise (if i remember that right that is) 1974 my father got it for me. cheap around 45.00 i think it cost him or less then that

think it was a cub plane that is single engine
wings use to break on it at-less once a week, after a year don't know what happen to it

they are very very hard to fly. i've messed around with a cheap electric one and destroyed it

whats so difficult is staying in control. it's easy when you stand straight behind it and don't turn it at all (yaw axis) but once it changes directions it's almost impossible, for me at least, to keep track of it and know how to control it.

that's why in this video he can control it like that. the whole time he tries to keep it generally in one angle. still hard as hell... but to do that upsidedown doughnut thing you gotta be a machine lol

My uncle had one of those control line planes also, but it was a Mustang.
His line was much shorter so getting dizzy spinning in a circle while flying the plane happened quite often.
