Boy the HP power to weight ratio sure make them attractive....eBay has a used helicopter one for $6K, with mod and upgrade double that and it is rated at 1500 shaft horse power, still a bargin...WOW, match them to a few Arneson Surface Drives or number 6's. I can not beleive more people do not go this route...however, refueling on the water could be a problem...LOL
