600 ESP RC Helicopter Kit

600 ESP Flybarless RC Helicopter600 ESP Flybarless RC Helicopter

The 6S powered 600ESP collective pitch electric RC helicopter is perfectly suited to the average collective pitch RC helicopter pilot who doesn't need gobs & gobs of power; but would rather just have a decent sized, reliable, economical, and enjoyably predictable sport/light 3D electric powered helicopter to fly.

Many people who have learned to fly collective pitch on a 450 size helicopter, really enjoy progressing to the 600 ESP for their next machine. It's a nice way to get into a larger bird, for a modest investment.

The 600 ESP design is also one of the best ever set of electric mechanics for 600/50 size scale projects. This is the primary reason I like them so much and why I'm selling them now.

600 ESP Kit Shipping Information

Shipping is free within Canada (Canada Post Regular Parcel).

There is a $20 USD flat rate shipping charge for all continental US addresses including Alaska & Hawaii (Canada Post Expedited-USA).

NOTE: Please ensure your correct shipping address on the PayPal checkout screen including your name, mailing address, postal/zip code, and country.

I ship Canada Post Monday through Friday, making a daily trip to the post office. All orders usually ship the next business day. I personally inspect the contents of each kit before I mail it out and will send you the tracking number afterwards. 

International Shipping:

If you are from somewhere else in the world, I can provide a shipping quote if you are interested in one of these 600ESP kits. To get a rough idea how much it would cost to ship to your international destination use Canada Post's International Shipping Calculator.

Select From Country: Canada / Postal Code: V0E 2Z0 / Your Country: International & Destination / Box Dimensions: (LxWxD) 74cm x 28cm x 15cm, Weight: 3.23kg

I can also arrange to have the kit dropped shipped to customers outside of North America direct from Phoenixtech (located in mainland China). I won't be able to inspect the kits myself before they ship out however. This can save you a fair amount on shipping costs, especially if you are located fairly close to China (Australia & New Zealand for example).

The helicopter kit/s must be in the same condition you received it/them in (all bags unopened - no parts missing) and shipped back double boxed just as it was received or it will not be accepted for return. You will be responsible for return shipping costs and I recommend a tracked shipping method with delivery confirmation as I am not responsible for lost shipments.

600ESP Customer Feedback

Feb 05, 2016

Hi John,

I have to pass on what a great heli this is.  Great flights today doing
figure 8's, still getting my legs back after the crash, and still very much a newbie.  Tested Captain rescue & SL, both worked great.  I'm understanding more what a learning curve this hobby is. Part building confidence with flying skills, part building confidence with my mechanical set up stuff, and part building confidence with the equipment & electronics.

So today everything checked out very well and so the confidence is building. Just wanted to pass along thanks for your help and having this 600 kit available.

Hey John, Thanks for that partial shipping refund for the 600ESP parts I just ordered. You shouldn't have bothered as you have been so much help to me that I feel I owe you way more.  From the time I ordered the kit, you have brought customer service to a whole new level!

Thanks again John,

Hello John, I had my first flights over the weekend with my 600ESP and it went very well. Can't wait to get out again!

Mainly, I just wanted to thank you for all the time you spent answering my "greenhorn" questions. I'm sure at times you were at your wits end with some of them, but please know that outstanding service didn't go unnoticed or unappreciated. That is something I really didn't expect at all to be honest. I've never gotten that amount of dedicated help before with any RC purchase, online or otherwise.

Thanks again for everything,

John Lang - United States

Hey John, Just wanted to say thanks again for all the help and let you know that the Heli flies great!

Hey John, Great day today and I must let you know about it! I just got back from the first three flights of the 600 ESP I purchased from you a few weeks back and could not be happier! This helicopter is everything you said it would be and more. The largest heli I have piloted up to now was a 500 and I honestly can't get over how stable and smooth this one is compared to it. I think it's even a bigger step up in stability from when I went from the 450 to the 500.

I now understand first hand why you and so many others say once you fly a larger CP machine, you will most likely not go back to the smaller stuff. This was also the first helicopter kit I have ever built. I was pretty apprehensive at first, but I just followed the instructions and your videos and it went fine, very enjoyable actually. I decided to use the AR7200BX flybarless system from my Blade 450X because I'm familiar with that unit in both my 450 & 500. I'll upgrade to a more advanced unit when I feel a bit more comfortable. What are your thoughts on the new AR7210BX or should I just get a Bavarian Demon 3X or Ikon?

Of course the future plan is to "skin it" as you say with a 600 size fuselage. I'm torn between the FunKey Agusta 109A (Coast Gard version) or the Bell 222 (red version). I've already told the wife one of those big boxes will be under the Christmas tree this year; she just rolls her eyes! Man I love this hobby!  One of my flying buddies is very impressed with this kit as well after seeing mine fly today so don't be surprised if you see another order in the next few days from the same town. Thanks again John for bringing these 600 ESP kits in and helping us get in hot water with our wives!

Hi John, Just wanted to pass along how impressed I am with this kit. I think everyone growing in to this hobby who wants a bigger heli or heli kit should start off with your kit. All of the components fit so well and are of such good quality. I checked the blades & rotor head today for balance and both were perfect. Blades had same CG & weight. Test rotor head on Du-Bro Balancer & also was balanced. Combined with your advice for electronics, great build videos and all the additional information that you provide, this is a great value.

This RC model helicopter kit is not a TOY! It is a high-tech & high performance product that has to be given the utmost respect and care by that of the operator. Improper use of this product can result in property damage and serious injury or death.

Rotating components, especially the main & tail rotor blades, are an ever present danger.

Model helicopters operate differently than model cars and airplanes. Helicopters by their nature are not positively stable, meaning that even when properly assembled and trimmed, helicopters will not recover from an unwanted flight attitude, nor will they hold any particular orientation without constant control inputs from the pilot.

This RC helicopter is therefore intended for adults with EXPERIENCE FLYING COLLECTIVE PITCH RADIO CONTROLLED HELICOPTERS at a legal or similar open & large flying field/location well away from spectators, buildings, traffic, etc. Fly in good weather conditions with good visibility and never fly beyond your skill level.


Because the safe & legal operation of this helicopter is beyond the control of the manufacturer and distributor, the owner/operator assumes all risk of use.

Some Kind Words From A Loyal Visitor

Hi John, I would just like to say that your eBooks regarding RC helicopters are the best guidelines and help that I have discovered on the internet.

I have now got to a point where I can do my own setup and not rely on someone else.

Your videos on learning how to fly really makes learning how to fly a lot more fun with very little stress. Congratulations and keep it up.

I have introduced quite a few friends starting off to your website, and everyone rates it no.1.

Best Regards, Johan Botha - South Africa
