    Hiya Folks,

    Chuck Norris is 1/8th Cherokee. This has nothing to do with ancestry, the man ate a fucking Indian.

      Dick Smith have android operated little counter helis, slightly more than ur budget, but i was given one of these android ones the other day, and they are incredibly stable. Would be a brilliant first rc heli.

        Dick Smith have co-axial (counter rotating blades) that are built into a plastic grid dome structure and looks like a ball. I think they call it the UFO, cant tell you because the 2 I bought are wrapped pressies now.

        No damage, nearly indestructible for beginnersl

        3 channel sucks if you want to grow into 4 chan full collective pitch as you will get bad habits from this style of heli. But perfect for a kiddie hack who has no intention of growing into full club spec heli flying.

        Retails for $50.

          I have just ordered one of these Syma X1 Series 2.4G RC BumbleBee UFO SpaceCraft Mini Quad-copter Free Shipping! - US$37.99

          can be had on Gumtree for $75 but you'll save a few bucks if you can wait a few weeks
          On the internet you can be anyone you want.
          It's surprising that so many people choose to stick with "moron"

            Jaycar also have a few as well. Both 3 channel and 4 channel. I'd go 4 channel as its heaps easier to control even for a beginners. I've flown RC helis for a few years now and the small ones are still great fun indoors.
