Affordable, single rotor beginner helis are really far and few between. Revell has thrown it’s hat in the ring with the introduction of the Revell Proto Max. We’ll see if the value holds up to the price in our thorough review.
Alright, we talk a lot about “hobby class” and “toy class” helicopters and Revell has to go and make things more difficult to distinguish. Not that this is a problem.
The Proto Max is a simple, straight forward micro FP helicopter that flys. Simply put, the Proto Max can do what is expected of a very tiny single rotor FP helicopter. Is it the most graceful and precise heli in this class? No, but it’s also half the price of it’s competition, has really cheap and readily available replacement parts, and is tough as nails. Yeah, we though so too: a huge value in both experience and in product.
Don’t expect a carbon fiber super-precise helicopter when you open the box, see it for what it is and you’ll be grinning and shaking your head every time you spin up the mains and take to the air. It flys, and not too shabby at that.
