Palmerston North Aeroneers

Model Aero Club (inc.)


It was once thought that model helicopter flight was impossible, but the latest models featuring gyro stabilization and sophisticated controls can be flown by almost anyone having some patience and perseverance.

About a thousand dollars will get you started with a full-featured gas-powered model. However, much smaller and simpler electric versions can be bought at toy shops for less than $100 complete with radio equipment and rechargeable batteries. These can be flown indoors quite safely.
