Added a Banshee to the fleet
« on: August 14, 2017, 06:13:20 PM »
Been wanting a Banshee for a while now and just out of pure luck I was lucky enough with the opportunity to own #23 who you all know belonged to Andrew aka Fasster

This Banshee is in mint condition and a real credit to Andrews maintenance and attention to detail...

First flight was yesterday morning... Wow very impressive!! Even though I took it easy to get the feel of it...

Third flight I felt comfortable to try bank 3 with 2300HS and 16 degrees pitch..... Damn!! It's wild.... amazingly smooth and endless power! Everything was just effortless...

I'm just itching to fly it again...

Ah mate I wish I was around 5 years ago.... But better late than never I guess...

This Heli certainly doesn't look 5 years old! I never even thought about it till you mentioned it...

You now have a major issue!!!!!!!!!!!
Owning the banshee, building the banshee, flying the banshee, and growing your skills with the banshee will leave you thinking your other helis just don't cut it anymore.

When I got my TDR (my second rc heli), I thought it was the best thing ever, then 6 months later I got the banshee (my fourth heli)...
The awesome TDR that I said I would never sell became boring in comparison, and was sold a few months later!

The B700 is not perfect, not for everyone, but you can throw anything at it knowing she will hold up mechanically. 
Still the best heli I've owned, not always easy to fly or confidence inspiring, but the quality is second to none, and when you fly it you can't help but feel something special  :thumbsup:
