    Do grams really count?

    There are pilots to whom grams count. And there are situations when grams count. But this question is much more exaggerated, than it should be. This is the personal opinion of an average RC helicopter pilot: mine.

    SAB Kraken is not for scale helicopters. Really?

    "Hold my beer" Glen said, and he made it. And he repeated it not only once, instead, multiple times. If you think, the well designed and nice SAB Goblin helicopters cannot be converted to a scale helicopter, well: you are wrong, and Glen Scalemale provides the evidences.

    Blackout - A Gas-Powered Fairy Tale!How it all began

    We were advised to read the story of Blackout, how the company was born, how all began. Because the history of the Greek company is not a simple, "okay, let's do something" monologue, it is very interesting and motivating at the same time.

    It's heard from more XLPower Protos 380 owners, there is an unresolved tail wagging problem, no matter what's changed. A slow and big tail wagging was occurred on few of the Protos 380s. But we found the cause and the solution as well. And it costs nothing, takes 5 minutes to fix it.

    The hobby of rich people: indeed?Emotions by loving helicopters

    I keep listening time by time: this hobby is for rich people. Well, we know how many of us aren't rich at all. There are many-many pilots with cheaper, older stuff, older models. Many of us can have one or two helicopters only - not even the best ones. And there are few others with 8-10-12 helicopters, most of them latest versions, but this is is not so typical. Which hobby is cheap? If you do it well, none of them.
