RotorScale A-109 Coast Guard Rescue 450 Size Helicopter - PNP
U.S. Coast Guard A-109 Rescue 450 Size Helicopter from RotorScale - PNP - RSH0005P
Introducing RotorScale’s new lineup for sport scale PNP helicopters! At Motion RC, we believe there is more to RC helicopters than 3D acrobatic flying, so we’re excited to bring together scale realism and modern stabilization software in an economical, user-friendly package.
With the quality of Roban fiberglass fuselages the RotorScale 450 PNP Helicopter Series seeks to bring scale helicopter flying within the reach of pilots with basic collective pitch flight experience who are looking to move upward toward larger scale 500-800 size helicopters.
Using a 4S 1600mAh - 2200mAh battery, fly for 5-6 minutes while exploring the flight envelope of this sport scale stabilized helicopter. The durable fiberglass bodies are finished in automotive paint and clearcoat for durability, and feature sharp panel lines, rivets, and other surface details.
Digital servos provide precise and responsive action, and breakaway landing gear plates help divert damage during hard landings away from major frame components. If ever required, the internal frame can be completely removed from the body in a few minutes with eight screws. Fully backed by Motion RC’s world renowned service, a complete line of spare parts is available to keep you flying.

This is a 450-size PNP helicopter with a painted fiberglass scale body. You have to add your own FBL gyro and receiver. It uses a 6S battery. I used the IKON-2 FBL gyro and a Spektrum 6 channel receiver, and the recommended Motion RC Admiral 6S-1100 Lipo battery. I'm using a Spektrum DX8-2G TX. The heli flies very smooth, using gentle rates on the TX. It looks great on the shelf or cruising through the air in my backyard. This heli has retractable landing gear - And that's my only complaint. The landing gear look cool, but they're wobbly and don't really keep the heli steady when you're spooling up for takeoff. I ended up keeping the gear retracted and just taking off and landing on the belly. I was in 2-inch grass in my backyard, and I made a little bare spot for the tail blades to spin. But I may be able to adjust the servo throw on the gear to make them work better. Anyway, this is a great-flying, cool looking heli.
By A Brian 2 Flybarles Controller or a IKON 2 then the heli will fly champs
