Nothing is safe from deliberate destruction. It was meant in another way.
This[^] is one of the smallest collective pitch model helicopters. It's not so expensive and weighs only 39g, including the tiny battery. This small mass also makes it extremely nervous and even harder to fly than larger helicopters.
It's also 'indestructible'. Due to its weak motor and tiny weight, it can survive a crash without notable damage. Sometimes it's caught by grass and does not even hit the ground. Finding the little flea in higher grass is the bigger problem. Even if it is damaged, the parts often are better paper clips and don't cost very much. Installing them also is not a big deal.
So it comes down to:
+ The model and parts are at the lower end of the price scale.
+ They are 'indestructible', saving you lots of money and frustration.
- Small models are usually hard to fly. There is not much inertia to stabilize them and they react very quickly to the tiniest control inputs.
+ Once you learn to control a flea, you can fly anything.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
After a week of absence, due to being very busy and exhausted, there's a new SOTW!
This stuff is ehhh... weird. Although weird doesn't quite cut it.
I'm digging the music which isn't that weird, but you'll need eye and mind bleach after watching the cartoon video clip.
No violence or nudity, but still not very safe for work
