Ok last "trainer" I'm going to post today. This is one of Walt's planes. I had the rotors snap off due to hands going where they shouldn't. I then found a old heli plan from Scientific that showed a metal blade holder thing. I used that idea to make one for the giro. It worked for about 60 flights before the person holding the plane decided to pick it up by one blade. Once that metal bent that was it, I'm making one now out of steel as the first one was made out of a soda can. I do consider it a trainer as how easy it is to fly. Can't stall it. Can't do a loop. Can't dive very well. But it really is a eye catcher. Took 2 days to build it. I used SIG-ment and SIG Miami blue. Everything was in the kit other than power, I choose a brand new Cox .049 Snap Start and purchased a BHM handle from Black Hawk. I am using Sig Champ 25% with great results.

Outside the circle
