DV225 Turbine R/C Helicopters


Turbine powered helicopters offer the ultimate in realism and power for the RC helicopter pilot, and this DVD shows what's involved in building and flying these fantastic models.

Whether discussing single and twin wheel turbines, reduction gears and transmission assemblies or fuel, gas and electronics systems, Jon Tanner, editor of Model Helicopter World magazine, explains how it all works and what the choices are. With the help of Richard Morris and Dave Hollins he looks at sports and utility models, advanced designs and emerging technology, as well as making a fascinating comparison between the operation of model and full-size turbine helicopters in the company of Sean Brown and his Bell 206 Jet Ranger.

The realism that can be achieved with turbine powered scale model helicopters, not just in the way they look, sound and fly, but in the way they mirror so closely the systems found in full-size helicopters, is truly amazing and the source of enormous pleasure and satisfaction for all those who enter this fascinating sport.
