Thinking off buying another heli, the S102g (Black Hawk).

Anyone got one, are they any good?

Currently flying an S111g and loving it, seen some good reviews of the Black Hawk, supposed to handle just as well as my s111g but also go a bit quicker...

Yes! Most certainly an EXELENT heli. I have one, and I LOVE it.

 

Bit slow, kinda lumbers sometimes, esp. with the 107 blades I put on it, but flies like a caddilac.

 

One thing is, I'd wait for a little bit- they're releasing an s102s with working dart guns.

 

Whether or not you want the launchers, I'd wait because it'd probably kick the price down on the old 102g.

 

But, BUY IT!

 

No mechanical issues known, silky smooth controls, (after ripping out the throttle spring at least) highly crash resistant, (later in its life, you might need to pop the windscreen back into place- the sides of mine pop out on "hard landings", but that might be from taking it out)

 

Not seen too many other people here with them- mostly cobras and apaches, but they're having some problems with those while the 102, although being an earlier model, is a venurable warhorse.

yeah, but they're longer, and you really should replace all of them at one time.

 

Doesn't really lumber until you put the 107 blades on it. One thing is I advise using a 107 as a primary heli-- the millitary helis are not as good, in my opinion, for a primary, since they are harder to fix, and not so much of a challenge heli, esp the 102. If you remove the throttle spring, you can easilly fly 1 1/2-handed.

thanks for the advice, appreciate why your saying about using the 107 as a primary, but I do much prefer the real life looking helis.

Might have to add one to the collection tho 😉

107 blades should speed up your 111. They did my daughters 111.
