Personal preference is for the Piccolo (we have two) - I have seen the
Hornet and it is a nice heli, however I was advised that for an absolute
beginner the Piccolo was best as it takes the abuse a novice pilot will give
it .  Most of the bits that have broken whilst I've been learning to fly
have been repaired with a drop of CA and the odd length of carbon rod or
tube.

However if you can fly then maybe the Hornet would be your better choice.
The best advice would be to  visit the  BB's of both and see what's what.

The Hornet flies MUCH better (I've got both), however, it will also scratch
any furniture you fly it into ! It has a higher head speed, and more solid
rotors.

Though as its more controllabe, you're less likely to fly it into anything
(depending on your experience).

Remember, both are fixed pitch machines with Hiller only control systems.
They need a bit more anticipation than a modern heli. Old timers won't have
any problems......<G>!

I would recommend the Hornet of course.  Stop by our web site for a
peek if you like.
