Whatever the customer of my benefactor needs with a platform that can carry 200 kilograms of payload at 140mph. Power-line or pipeline patrol, dropping medical supplies off in contaminated or infested areas, inspecting nuclear disasters, servileness, crop spraying, "peek and pop" a missile into a Al-Qaeda infested cave...This is all great stuff , Dennis & Congratulations !
One question ....what is the purpose of this little unmanned heli ???
Same as an R-22 or Mini-500. Nothing new, just a different design of parts.That sure is pretty , Dennis. How is the tail rotor feathering bearing arranged?
I like that rotorhead. I hope you will post some video when the time comes.
Pretty expensive (@1.4 million dollars each) for delivering on R/C a few Chinese fire crackers. I have to agree with you, don’t try to sell it personally. By the way, we aren’t nervous at all, we sell the real stuff and only for $541,000 each with a real engine (?) and 16 of them on orders for the Public Security Ministry. Chinese aviation officials project that the Chinese civil market will have a total requirement of 1,440 helicopters by 2018, requiring approximately 1,250 new deliveries. Maybe Tianjin next time..?Whatever the customer of my benefactor needs with a platform that can carry 200 kilograms of payload at 140mph.

I don't get into the sales of it.
Well , one should not believe everything written in the western media about China, while it might appear and has a similarity to the Hughes /Schweitzer 300, it was in fact made entirely manufactured in China. Looks can be deceiving.Albert
Is the AC310 an Hughes 300 copy ?
The first helicopter design has now been lost it is still likely Leonardo played a part in the development of the modern helicopter. Leonardo's work inspired Igor Sikorsky him to take up the study of the helicopter, a field in which he became a world leader, not because he invented the first, but he invented the first successful helicopter, upon which all further designs were based. Sikorsky's successful VS-300 had become the model for all modern single-rotor helicopters.It's a blatantly obvious clone of a 300 with a slightly different canopy shape.
It might be manufactured in China but it surely wasn't designed there, unless you consider copying an existing 50 year old helicopter designing something.
No!! It is not a copy! It is a US built 300 with a nose job!Albert

You would not get federal loans or flood relief worth of millions (which you didn't need ,spend, nor paid back) in China and with your history on bankruptcy and an enterprising opportunity for you in China is, and let’s face in the USA too…. less than cero.No!!

Unfortunately, this type of business in China is common. They will purchase something like this, make a few changes and machine the manufacturers names off the parts, and claim that it is of their own building in hopes to attract funding.
In reality, they have no way of knowing how to copy it, or the materials used, or tolerances and heat-treat involved. That is where the turm "Chinese Copy" came from. They copy it, sell it, and fix it as the problems arise.
The Mini 500/ Cicare (widow maker) comes in mind. Copy it, sell it and fix it after the pilot’s funeral while citing Pilot Error
Chinese are adventuress and willing to take financial chances, but they do desperately need an experienced helping-hand to get there..... unfortunately they do tend to egnor the help they pay for, and make many mistakes causing the project to cost 4 times as much and take 3 times as long.
Yes , indeed you are very lucky! Getting help and advice comes from a Corllins University Graduate in Bachelor’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering ($7.450 a pop) to develop a 1.4 million of dollars R/C helicopter ?
On the other hand, my Chinese CEO benefactor is a very smart and honest man that seeks foreign help and advise, and never steals from people. I am very lucky!
I suppose your benefactors and his team abroad composed doctors, professors, masters, and high-class engineers and technicians for many years are closely tracking the latest technical developments at Walt Disney rides only.
The fact is about most Chinese companies trying to get into the aviation business; "They don't know what they don't know". But that makes an enterprising opportunity for me! ;-)
Wow Albert,You would not get federal loans or flood relief worth of millions (which you didn't need ,spend, nor paid back) in China and with your history on bankruptcy and an enterprising opportunity for you in China is, and let’s face in the USA too…. less than cero.
