Default Walkera 54-Q3 Airwolf

Hello there. I have the Walkera 54-Q3 Airwolf helicopter. I purchased this simply because I'm such a big, big fan of the 80's tv show Airwolf and I wanted something that was simple to fly and that I could feel comfortable with flying any time I wanted too.
I'd like to point out a few thing's for yea on this helicopter. First thing you'll notice, is how beautifully done the fuselage is. Excellent craftsmanship went in to this bird.
Here's a few pictures of it first with 1/28 scale Mini-Z Knight Rider, then by itselfe.



This is a co-axial helicopter which means it has two set's of main rotor's one ontop of each other that rotate oposite direction's. This helps provide stability and makes it easy for beginners to learn how to fly helicopters. It also helps novice pilot's with orientation as they wont' have to worry about other controls of more conventional helicopters.

Very scale-like in appearnace. Love the work they put into the fuselage.


Here you can see the counter-rotating blades.

Nice details include the three tubes in the Airwolf's nose

Gun's are removeable.

Pictures of me flying this bird in our down-town auditorium.



No, not constipated, just concentrating!

Now for the disapointing part of the helicopter. The helicopter is not very consistant. Meaning, it only work's half the time. The other half it's impossible to get off the ground and hover. It might just be a fluke with this particular one I got, but I'm not completely satisfied with this helicopter. You might be lucky and have one that flys pefectly 100% of the time.
Now, when it does work, it fly's great!
At any rate, I've got a much better helicopter that is more conventional and that's my Nine Eagles Kestrel 500 which I'll post in another thread. I plan on installing this Airwolf fuselage on the Nine Eagles mechanics.

Update:
As the helicopter was never consistent in binding with the transmitter it came with, we had to send it back to get it serviced. This was quite a few months ago and have not gotten any answer's from where it was sent to. I keep bugging my Dad to get it back, but every time we call them, we get nothing. So I'm afraid I've lost this bird.
Hoping to replace it with another MSR just like the one Dad got! I love that thing!

Those RCP tracks cost around $200.
Dad got him self another MSR helicopter while he was on his recent trip to California. So, now I own the original MSR helicopter. It's a wonderful flying machine. I still miss the Airwolf as the fuselage was just amazingly well built. It's just a shame the electronics didn't work well.
