Sniper pricelist

Sniper high end 3D helicopter

LaHeli company developed the Sniper after the MaxiR. With the experience of the previous designs, they developed a new larger main blades for rotor of 1010 mm (39") and design the required changes to the overall geometry.

Sniper is a helicopter without compromise. The frame is optimized for use of an AXI motors  in the 2820 series. The head is built in metal. It was also decided that the use of 3 to 4 Lithium-Polymer cells was the best, though battery holder designed accordingly.

Flying capabilities of the Sniper are unique. Slim blades with relatively heavy internal weights,  in combination with lightweight paddles make the Sniper to be the most stable helicopter of its class, but with no impact to ability to make fast 3D manoeuvres when flying aerobatics. The performance of the AXI motor is higher than most batteries are able to handle (the in-flight performance is limited by the battery).

Aerobatic manoeuvrability allows unlimited 3D flying including dynamic changes between "normal" and "inverted" position at zero head speed. The rolls can be made at a rate of 360 per second continuously. Flying backwards and sidewards are limited only by the capability of the gyro to keep the tail aligned.

Concerning the repair/service work, most of it can be made without any glue, all usual serviceable joints are screwed. All parts, which can be broken at a "standard" crash can be replaced within 15 minutes.

We consider the Sniper to be the top end helicopter.
