ROTOR F/X in Van Nuys Sells Affordable Choppers
Flight Lines Newspaper
RotorFX

Yes, you can afford to buy a new helicopter, turns out ready built Mosquito XE’s start at $38,500 and lessons come in a package for $2,800 for ten hours of, and I’m promising this here, first rate instruction.  Which as it turns out is all you need to fly one of these babies since they neatly fit into the ultralight category.  You can even build it yourself from a kit for around $30,000.
When you arrive at RotorF/X in Van Nuys, should you ever be so blessed, several wonderful things happen to you right away.  First there’s the sweet sense of hospitality, then comes the aroma of fiberglass sanding dust, I think they should make a body powder so everyone could smell like that, and then there’s the Schweitzer, looking back at you, begging you to take lessons, with the enticing sparkle only a glossy craft sitting in the sunlight can offer.  Full Story Here
