1st post in the heli section...

Ikarus ECO8, a long story.

I've bought my ECO8 in the year 2002:

After some hopping around,a few fails and a lot of repair work I decided to save my money and placed the ECO in a corner...

... a few year after that (october 2010) I wanted something different to the planes I used to fly.
So the ECO8 has been dusted:

With some exercises on the SIM and on the field it turned out that the heli flies very stable...

...now the time has come to improve a little:

With the gyro and the completely new adjusted main head it was even more stable and easy to fly.

But still brushed (which is not causing any problems) and 35mHz - and this has caused some probs...

...time to rebuild

As I found out the ECO8 is fun flying (without the technical problems) I wanted to do something new with the mechanics:

...on the field

Attached the ECO with new hardware: brushless, 3s 5000mAh, FrSky 2,4gHz

...no failes or crashes till now, so the training gear has been removed in the meantime (and yes, it looks better without).
