scale bodies for the Piccolo!
When the Ikarus ECO Piccolo 'indoor' helicopter was first advertised, they
referred to their intention to produce a range of scale bodies for the
model at some time in the future. Later advertising made no reference to
this, and I wondered if I had imagined it or the idea had been dropped,
but at Sandown Model Symposium, the model was being flown with a
beautiful little Hughes 300 body.
The Hughes 300 body is now available in a kit which includes everything
required to convert the standard Piccolo, including new rotors. I've
seen it advertised by Midland
Helicopters at £39.99.
Also in the pipeline are scale fuselages of the Airwolf, a Bell
UH-1 Huey and a Bell 222. There is a possibility of
retracts being produced for the Airwolf/Bell 222. The ECO Piccolo is
distributed by J Perkins Distribution.
