An awesome highlight from Weston Park International Model Show. These radio controlled jet turbine powered helicopters sounded like the real thing as they whizzed around the runway. One had a classic smoke system and the fantastic EL-smoke DUO system on its skids enabling it to leave 3 smoke trails.
The helicopters are created from Vario Lama SA 315 B kits. They are 1:5.6 scale. The rotor is 2.5 m and overall weight is approximately 19KG. Piloted skillfully by Yann Moindrot and his wife.
