OK building a scale helicopter is a great to show of your talents as a builder and as a flyer but where do you start?

  • Fiber Glass Shell
  • Build from scratch
  • What size
  • What engine
  • Pre painted or paint yourself
  • standard rotor head or multi blades
  • Most of all how far do you go
There are plenty of choices out there a short cut to get into scale would be to convert your pod and boom machine to scale with the aid of a body shell as there are plenty of good quality one out the from manufactures such as Heli artist, Align, Smartmodels, Thunder Tiger and the list goes on. The first decision is with so many choices available what Helicopter to make and I think that's down to personal preference a popular choice is the famous Airwolf which you can get from 450 to a very large Vario version below is Trex 500 in air airwolf body the owner made a cabin and dash from scratch including stickers on the dashboard it also has retractable wheels and lights
