I must have violated a forum rule because my first post was removed. Thought I'd try again and be more discrete. There is a helicopter that is American made. It's only sold by Great planes. It's a 450 size and has no electronics. You need to supply the radio, receiver, servos, motor, esc, Bec, etc. It looks nice but of course it's a little more pricey then the China made helicopters.

I like to buy American if I can but nowadays that's getting harder to do.

I'd bet that all the parts still were still made in China and just assembled in the US.

All the stuff you have to put in the copter won't be made in the USA, so really it makes no difference.

Hi Pjdog,

Century state that they are an American Company, who design and manufactury in the States, I have their 50 size Bell 47 on my wish list for when I trust myself enough to fly a $1,000 plus Helicopter.

I mainly go on price not country of origin, but in this case Century are the only ones that I can find that Manufacture a larger Bell 47 which is about my favourite Helicopter, for the record my favourite Fixed wing is the DH Tiger Moth, that must say something about my age the Tiger Month is older than I am and the Bell is about the same age.

My favorite Fixed wing is P40. 1936 - I was born in 1941.

Good point about all the components being from another country.

I had a Tiger Moth back in 1947, but I like my Pitts better.
