      You would probably be best getting a kit from a RC Model Shop.

      Its great fun building your own model, I have a helicopter that I built

      How long did your helicopter last, mine lasted a few minutes, taking off was easy now landing, that's another story

      How scary is the rotor speed, I shiiiit myself and hoped I had tightened everything up well and loctited it.

      Re: How to build your own RC car?

      Mine is still in full working order. I haven't crashed it once.

      I did buy a RC sim for the PC and just connected the Radio Controls to it, and practised and practised.

      I can't fly it properly though, and haven't flown for a couple of years.

      This is how to fly a helicopter newsreader, yes it is upside down and about 12 inchs from the grass.

      If you buy a kit Paul then it comes with all the instructions. I built a couple for a school mate when I was about 14. Great fun. Expensive driving mistakes though!

      A guy at the flying club can fly a heli like that.

      One day, so will I - I will video it so people can watch it smash into millions of pieces.
