I personally wouldn't opt for a kit-built helicopter; only factory built for me.


Whereas a trained monkey can build a plane; I view a helicopter as a little more complex. Not something I view as suitable for a bloke-in-his-garage project.

You can buy an airworthy & flying Brantly for about the same amount as a 2-stroke Mosquito. It's ugly and noisy but it flies well and is not very temperamental. You can put 300 hours on it and sell it for the same thing you gave for it. I had one for 6 years.

Can you get blades for these? I thought they were all basically grounded because of blades coming apart. I have seen pictures and it is actually pretty impressive how little blade they need to fly.
