Scale RC Bell Viper (Cobra) Helicopter Video

This is a great RC Helicopter Video of a scale AH-1Z Viper Helicopter.  The owner put some serious time in to building this RC Heli.  It even has working guns and tons of scale details.  The video is long, but it shows how the helicopter started out and finished.  Some of the details like the working lights, vents, scale stickers, working guns and wind vane, and even down to the rivets on the fuselage are incredible.  The owner (krumrick2) even shows how he modified the original fuselage to make it so realistic.  It is amazing the patience and skill some of the rc modelers have.

Hobby vs Toy Grade RC Helicopters

This is a great video by rcflightschool.  Now you know why one RC Helicopter costs more than the other.

Ever wonder what the difference between rc helicopter your buy at toys r us or wal-mart like air hogs and the more expensive hobby grade rc helicopters are? Here are a few thoughts from someone who has ten years' experience in the hobby. Electric remote controlled helicopters are loads of fun in a variety of ways but here we try and help you make the buying decision.

Scale MD500E Video

A video of the RC Aerodyne Scale MD500E RC Helicopter

A Full Size Hughes 500 HelicopterThe successful Hughes 500/MD 500 series began life in response to a US Army requirement for a light observation helicopter.  Hughes' Model 369 won the contest against competition from Bell and Hiller. The OH-6 Cayuse first flew in February 1963.

The 500 series design features shock-absorbing landing skid struts, a turboshaft engine mounted at a 45-degree angle toward the rear of the cabin pod, a fuel tank cell under the floor and the battery in the nose. The engine exhaust port is located at the end of the cabin pod underneath the tailboom. It has a short-diameter main rotor system and a short tail, giving it an agile control response and is less susceptible to weather-cocking.

Hughes won the US Army's LOH contest with its OH-6 helicopter by submitting a very low and aggressive price per airframe (without an engine). Due to rising prices, the US Army later re-opened the contest, where Hughes offered the machine at a more realistic price, but was undercut by the redesigned Bell OH-58 Kiowa (military JetRanger). OH-6 helicopters were still ordered by the US Army, though at a much reduced number.

The video was shot with a JVC GY-HD200UB camcorder at 720p60 and edited in Final Cut Studio 3."
