I would be happy to see a new RC Helicopter (Nitro or Electric)from Deagostini.

Have collected the Deagostini Helicopter EP Concept SR Kyosho back in 2006 and I haven't seen something like it again.

It was a very interesting partwork and the magazines were very useful introducing aeromodelism to begginers.

My personnel opinion is that an RC Helicopter is very unlikely.Blink

Reason being that there are so many available on the market at seriously low prices that it just wouldn`t sell.

Search ebay for RC Helicopters and there are 7421 options.

Think that says it all.Crying

I agree with Delboy there are a tons of low cost helis.The more expensive ones like the t-rex etc... need a serious amount of heli experience to fly them properly.

Like has been said, plenty of cheap ones out there.
Starting out from about £100 for a Eflight Blade to learn on upwards to silly money. I've had Trex 250 and Flybarless Trex 500. Cost me a fortune after crashes and the batteries are a packet as well the bigger they are. Stick to statics now.
