Successful first flight and looking forward to getting it out again.
Quick assembly with no glue, drop in your receiver and battery pack and it cruises along even in gusty wind. Great to see the iconic shape of the Hurricane in the sky with this relatively cheap but very good looking warbird.

The Westland Wasp was a small 1960s British turbine powered, shipboard anti-submarine helicopter. Produced by Westland Helicopters, it came from the same P.531 programme as the British Army Westland Scout, and was based on the earlier piston-engined Saunders-Roe Skeeter. It fulfilled the requirement of the Royal Navy for a helicopter small enough to land on the deck of a frigate and carry a useful load of two homing torpedoes.
The Wasp sunk one ship in combat, seriously damaging the ARA Santa Fe submarine in 1982 during the Falklands war.
Shell: Available from Red Lodge Helicopters
Turbine: Wren 50 heli turbine running on paraffin
Many custom made framework and internals.
The HH-52 was the U.S. Coast Guard’s first turbine-powered helicopter and the first that could land in the water next to vessels or personnel in distress without using awkward floats, making it the most effective air-sea rescue helicopter of its time. The Coast Guard operated ninety-nine HH-52s between 1962 and 1989, saving 15,000 lives.
