The reasonYup, this one is weird. The wings don't move! Not something I usually do. However, I like scale aircraft, and those aren't very popular for helicopters, at least not compared to aircraft. So scale copters are rare, and hobby grade ones tend to be expensive. I can find a number of airplanes I'd like to fly that cost less than a simple pod-and-boom helicopter of similar quality, never mind the cost of putting a scale fuselage on it!
So I bought this to learn to fly fixed wing, as that's what it was intended for. I also picked up a pair of floats for it, because - well, they were nearly free and look very cool, which is the point!
