The Coastguard's fullsize equivalent has for many years been saving lives around the globe. This model is a tribute to the brave pilots and crew who fly to help people in areas suffering Tsunami, earthquake and other natural disasters.
From the authentic oleo detail through to the canted 4-blade tail rotor, this beautifully crafted scale masterpiece sits so realistically in flight that you can almost feel the 'whump' of rotors and smell the exhaust haze!
Unmatched knock-me-down-with-a-feather flight stability!
The amazing hovering stability of the Coastguard makes other helicopters in this class seem twitchy by comparison.
The test pilots and staff at JP were completely knocked out by the totally 'planted' feel of the helicopter in all phases of flight - this is one helicopter that when you test fly, you'll fall head over heels for!
Stability-enhancing fuselage design
The turbulence damping and stability-enhancing characteristics of this amazing fuselage have to be seen to be believed! It puts other micro helis to shame!
Enhanced by the PEGS3 piezo gyro, the latest generation system electronics add to a flying experience that we believe is truly smoother and more realistic than any other micro helicopter out there!
Flight Simulator USB cable INCLUDED
Designed so that you can practice flying on the FREE FMS flight simulator first by using this lead connected to your transmitter and to yor PC. Then when you're ready; simply disconnect the lead from the transmitter and use it to go flying for real!
Just like the hugely popular Twister Medevac, the Twister Coastguard is simply a knockout first-time R/C helicopter and completely suited to people with no RC flying experience whatsoever. We think that with it's exceptional looks and class-leading handling there'll more than a few chisel-jawed heli veterans lusting after a Coastguard too!
With everything included - transmitter, spare parts, USB flight simulator cable, training DVD - you'll be in the air more quickly and more confidently - with a better looking and a better performing model.
Unique damage prevention features - LBW
We've engineered in some helicopter-saving features that even experts will like, such as integral LBW; a low lipo battery warning system that activates a blue flashing beacon parked behind the main rotors when it's time to land and recharge. As any experienced electric flight pilot will tell you, it's just too easy to fly for a few seconds too long and knock a lipo cell out making it impossible to recharge your battery.
Unique damage prevention features - MOPSThe revolutionary MOPS (Motor Overload Protection System) helps prevent damage to your drive motors and speed controller by killing the motors automatically on blade-stopping tip-overs - then automatically re-energising the system some seconds later! So no more burnt out motors, batteries, and you can kiss goodbye to those bad ole' smokin' speed controllers!
Reassuring for new pilots and comforting for experienced pilots.
State-of-the-art electronics in one package
The '3-in-1' on-board electronics package includes piezo gyro, electronic mixers and speed controllers PLUS a computer fail-safe, an LED system check, and a motor safe-start facility!
Fail-safe and safe-start
In addition to the amazing LBW and MOPS damage prevention systems, the fail-safe cuts power to the main motor in the event of transmitter failure while the safe-start only allows starting when the throttle stick is low–so there is no danger of connecting the flight battery and inadvertently sending power instantly to the motors.
The Planet T5 transmitter and R6M micro receiver have been designed for crystal-free operation of you Twister helicopter. It uses state-of-the-art computer technology to bind it’s transmitter and receiver in such a fashion that, under most model flying conditions, interference that would normally cause loss of control in 35mHz or 27mHz equipment is nearly always rejected—and in most cases radio functionality is entirely unaffected. This makes for a safer, more reassuring flying experience.
The new design single aerial micro receiver is ultra-compact and allows for rapid and convenient installation especially when compared with some 2.4GHz twin-unit multi-aerial receiver designs available.
High performance Li Poly battery and charger system
Both a 12V automatic DC charger PLUS a 240 volt mains adaptor are included giving the option of charging from a 12 volt power source directly or 240 volt mains. Charge time is around 1 hour.
All spares are available through local model and hobby shops.
