Micro helis from Estes… the rocket company…

Being winter in the awesome half of the world (that would be the northern hemisphere), indoor micro helicopters might be a good distraction until the snow goes away.  Estes, the rocketeers, are trying to assist in that distraction by offering up a couple new micro helis for our entertainment.  Both the SF161 and R73-OPS Mini Attack heli (above) are coaxial helicopters, so they are ultra stable for even the most novice pilots.  Both also feature LED “search lights” and 3 channel infrared transmitters.  The press release we received was kind enough to include dimensions and other detailed info, but what was missing from those details was lift capability.  We would really like to know if one of these can hold enough weight to strap on an Estes rocket motor and make it the fastest micro heli on the planet.

Both helis are available now through the Estes website and, presumably, your local Estes dealers.  Check out the video after the break to see how they fly.
