'Straight out of the box' standard Twister SkyLift with no mods/tweaks/upgrades:
The Twister SkyLift is the worlds first
RTF tandem rotor semi-scale RC
Weve designed it to give absolute
newcomers and sport pilots the ultimate
thrill - never before achievable - in RC
model helicopter flight!
Up until now, tandem rotor helis were considered
hugely expensive and difficult to flystrictly for
experts only.Not any more!
Amazingly, we've found the Twister SkyLift is EASIER to hover
than normal helicopterseven the incredibly stable
Two coaxial rotor systems working
together has to be flown to be believed!
Like the other Twister coaxials, the SkyLift is Crash-
Ready and chock-full of features that make it impressively tough and a dream to own and
You get MOPS, LBW, spare parts, simulator lead (to
use with any free downloadable simulator), 2.4GHz Planet T5
transmitter and more.DVD FLight Guide included
A DVD Flight Guide containing step-by-step video instructions - even step-by-step tandem rotor video flight instruction, is on the DVD too!Fantastic Introduction to flight!
This World First is a fantastic introduction to real 4-function R/C helicopter flight and will earn a unique
place in every pilots hangar. Flight stability is outstanding - 2 co-axial systems provides a degree of stability that newcomers in particular will find ultra-reassuring!Returns to the hover when sticks released!
From forward flight, the helicopter tends to return to the hover when the cyclic sticks are released!
This makes it much easier to gain confidence more quickly.No tail swing makes flying easier!
For those used to conventional helicopters with pesky tail booms to keep straight; you'll be pleased to find the absense of one of those just enhances and improves flight control!BIG hugely spaced 8-wheel undercarriage for stability
No need to worry about rocking and rolling on the ground with your SkyLift - the undercarriage spacing makes take-offs and landings easy, whilst providing huge opportunity to practice those famous tandem-rotor ground rolls and reverse running take-offs!
Whew!How come the SkyLift is so easy to fly when tandem rotor helis have traditionally been so difficult?
Traditional tandem rotor model helis were not designed for super stability - but rather for scale appearance.
The SkyLift incorporates the advantages of new high stability tandem rotor dynamics, microprocessor control systems with careful use of modern lightweight materials.
The result is a an incredibly easy-flying heli that rewrites the tandem rotor book.How much space do I need?
This model is a good deal bigger than many electric helicopters and despite being easy to control you must have plenty of empty space to operate in.
Be aware that operating in a small space will provide for a much more challenging flight experience as rolling vortices of air reflected back into the rotor system will have a marked effect on stability.
Tandem rotors are therefore different to single rotor helicopters, so be prepared to adjust your flying style and flight location.
Have fun with the Worlds First RTF tandem rotor helicopter!
