  • Official RotorScale AH-6 Attack 450 Size Helicopter Discussion Thread

    Motion RC is pleased to announce our release of the RotorScale AH-6 Attack 450 Size Helicopter. This is the official message thread to post photos, videos, flight reviews and any questions about this scale 450 helicopter.

    Product Page: https://www.motionrc.com/collections...helicopter-pnp

    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 6S 1100-1500mAh 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.

        Back in the day I took a Toy's R Us, 21st Century AH-6 plastic body and put it on a Hawk 30 with lights. It was a nice bird. To see this in 450 is awesome!

                  Sure hope they do one up in the Little Bird, that would be a purchase for me. One thing about the Hughes 500, you can do l alot of different ones and they all look great. Here is my Hughes 500MD in flight back before I sold all my scale helis and went to EDF Jets.

                          You know the little birds look black but they are Green unless units paint them that is. Same color for all US Army Helicopters, tis how the Black hawk got its name. Back in my day the blades were green but looked black.

                            Pretty sure the Black Hawk got its name from the Native American war chief of the same name.
                            All US Army aircraft (except the Cobra) have names that originate with Native American tribes.

                            Spent a bit of time around some of the TF 160 SOAR guys and their aircraft (Little Birds and Black Hawks) ~
                            They were using black (or a VERY dark green) as the primary color for most of their aircraft, since it blends in so well with their primary focus of night-time missions. Their aircraft were typically much darker than our regular line aircraft.

                              you are right the US helicopters are all American Native names. LOL I see that the new color on the CH47F is a sand color now.( Looks very good) I always said the green blades looked black to me always. when they started changing the color green while I was in, looked black. It is a very dark Green Looks blacker than black. I do know some ah-520 's were painted with a Black over the dark green.

                                Per the Official RotorScale UH-1A Medic Green 450 Size Helicopter Discussion Thread, It appears MRC has been at the mercy of manufacturing issues and this may or may not happen. No fault of MRC, Per another thread, someone spoke to MRC recently and was told that they have been shelved for the forseeable future due to some issues with the manufacturer. It's certain a bummer but that's life. We can only hope this eventually surfaces. Despite some of the negative comments in the aforementioned thread, MRC is by far one of the best in the business and they back up their products. Though the marketing may have been a bit premature, I still would much rather they didn't release anything until all was kosher. Thanks for all you do to make this hobby most enjoyable MRC.

                                  OK, so I just had a chat with someone from MRC support online about this. He said the reason for the holdup on these is they would not all perform the same so they have been held back until the new parts arrive for the factory to do an upgrade. They just want the customer to get a good product. He says they will eventually become available but no ETA at this time. To buy something else now or not to buy....that is the question. lol

                                    Any word on when this little guy will be available? I was going for the Huey but got impatient and got a Roban UH-1N 600 kit. This was my 2nd choice so it's now on the list!
