RC Era MD500 Flybarless Twin Brushless Motor Military RC Helicopters with 2.4GHz Transmitter, 6-Axis Gyro and Barometric Altitude Hold - RTF

Color: Camouflage

RC ERA C189 (RTF) MD500 Flybarless RC Military Helicopter with Twin Brushless Motors, 6-Axis Gyro & Barometric Altitude Hold with 3 flying speeds

A really nice, ready-to-fly scale model of this iconic full-size military helicopter that is full of outstanding features, these make the MD500 not only look great but makes it fly great as well. The MD500 was developed for the military from the Hughes 500 light utility helicopter and became known as the MD500 Defender.

The outstanding features of the MD500 include a metal 5-blade flybarless rotor head, twin brushless motors, a 6-axis gyro, and a barometric altitude hold with optional optical positioning. This gives the MD500 incredible stability and an amazing amount of power making it perfect for beginners or the more experienced pilots. In more experienced hands it is capable of all the usual more advanced helicopter manoeuvres.

Other features include a dedicated transmitter with auto take-off and landing, out-of-control protection (which allows the gyro and stability systems to take over at the flick of a switch), 3 flight modes, a low voltage alarm, and a modular battery design with intelligent power management.

This is a great little scale-looking helicopter that is perfect for the beginner due to its advanced aids to help you fly. But it is also very appealing to the more experienced flyers who want a great-looking, maneuverable small helicopter to have some fun with.
