    When you do this with any helicopter there is a huge risk it will tip and ruin the helicopter, especially if its a small air hogs or raiden tech helicopter

    Give the guy a BREAK at least he's outside with a real hobby and relating his ideas to us. I have three nephews - 16, 18 and 20. All they do 24/7 is play Warcraft, a totally useless past time. I applaud the author, I never thought of that idea, I was going to use packing foam blocks and shape them for my heli. (However DO turn the Cap Lock OFF, dj whatever)

    well I'm not feeling attacked and I'm glad you typed your opinion. you asked about the age I'm 14. now for the desert eagle and this gangster style in the photo you just saw only my one side. A proverb/ adage says "DON'T JUDJE A BOOK OF ITS COVER" keep this on mind for other things too. and thanks for your opinion.

    I'd say that's a pretty mature response for a 14-year-old, Grimling. Not using all-caps and using a spellcheck would be great, but hey, this is a start. (Firefox has spellchecking built-in, btw.)

    Just make sure the bottles are tied to the landing gear in such a way that the CG (Center of Gravity) has not been changed. In other words, make sure to center the bottles with the main shaft (or a bit towards the nose since the bottle neck is lighter than the rest of it). AND THIS IS FOR THE CAPS LOCK LOVERS :D

    ah... i love thessaloniki, but havent' been there since before you were born, i'm sure it's changed a bit. how do the bottles affect flight and how well does it land on water? it seems the base is a bit narrow and it'd be top heavy.

    The bottles don't affect the flight at all. for the mass of my heli the bottles don't add much weight. as for the stability you can hold the bottles with sticks and this would be much better.
