Eco 8 or 16?

Hello there fellow heli pilots!

I fancy getting me an Eco electric heli but cant decide on wether to get the
Eco 8 and upgrade it to an Eco 16, or just get the 16 anyway. never had an
electric heli but they sure look like fun! no noise, no smoke, no oils, ahh
bliss!
Not that impressed on the flight times though, i could use a car battery,
with a 20ft cable which would give about 2 hours of hovering.lol better than
nowt i suppose. So! which should i go for then? or is there a better
electric heli on the market?.

cheers
Steve

Hi Steve,

There is definitely a better heli out there - the LOGO 10! Although
similar in size, there is just no comparison. Stop by my site,
LOGOheli.com to poke around a bit and then click the link to a very
active forum, with friendly folks to give you a hand.

If you can't scare yourself enough in 6  minutes of flying, then LiPO
batteries would give you much longer flight times.

Cheers!

Hi Guys

The Logo10 is a really good helicopter, I agree.
However, if you are on a tight budget then the ECO 8 wins by a long way.
As for the question of 8 vs 16, rather go for the 8 to start with and get
yourself some Li-Po batteries and you will have excellent flight times.
I learnt to fly with an ECO 8 and when it is set up correctly it is very
stable in
the hover.

If jou got da cash den do da Logo
