After some successful flying exploring the thrust vectoring capability of the Mephisto it was on approach into land on the 2nd flight of the day when the engine shutdown at the worst possible moment. The aircraft rapidly lost speed and despite the pilot reducing flap and pulling progressively back to full elevator...

Skill and judgement or plain simple luck? I'll go with the former. He knows what he's doing.

For the budget conscious heli pilot here is the Eachine E180. Jason was quite impressed with this. I literally turned up at the flying field with it and all I had done was charge up the flight batteries and put AA batteries in the included transmitter.

I am scratch building this model and intend to use a Pegasus 4 cylinder engine in it. I was wondering which servos I should use, perhaps someone could advise me? I will post pictures once I figure...
