It you spend the money you can make an ECO perform
at least as well as a 30. Flight times will be
from 6 to 15 minutes depending on how you gear it
and how you fly.

Of the small electric helis around, the Eco is by far the best. However,
none of these models is ideally suited to a raw beginner, as they are all
fragile. If you can fly OK, they can be a lot of fun.

Oh, I think different. I learned on an Eco and many others too. From my
first flight to now ( about 1 1/2 year ago) i only need about 40 $ to repair
my Eco.

Just have a lokk at our Homepage. It will come soon in englisch too.

Don't get me wrong! I'm not saying its impossible to learn on an electric -
indeed one of our top F3C pilots learned on a Concept EP! But they are much
more fragile than your average Shuttle or Mosquito. They don't tolerate
heavy landings as well, and for MOST (but not ALL!) pilots, an IC model will
prove a more robust model for learning!

I still love my Eco though!
