600 ESP RC Helicopter Kits For Sale

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 size, reliable, economical, and enjoyably predictable sport electric powered RC helicopter to fly.

This is not a beginner heli and requires previous collective pitch experience, or the help of an instructor/experienced CP heli enthusiast.

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 decided to start selling them.

IMPORTANT September 2023 Update: Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the lasting problems it has caused a small importer such as myself with supply issues along with obscene shipping and import fees; I won't be able to bring in any more Phoenixtech 600ESP kits. I will continue checking with Phoenixtech on shipping and import options in case the situation changes, but as it stands right now, the pandemic has successfully put an end to my little 600ESP kits & parts support business.

Motion RC in the USA has recently become a Phoenixtech dealer and may have 600ESP kits/parts in stock so check with them. 

I want take this time to thank all my Phoenixtech 600ESP customers for their support over the years; many of which still keep in touch with great stories of their fun 600ESP flying experiences. Thanks again to all :)

As many know, the 600ESP remains to be one of the best set of off the shelf mechanics ever for electric powered 600 size scale builds. The above dimensions are the critical ones you may need to ensure these mechanics will fit your particular scale fuselage

Over and above the fact there is no unsightly anti-rotation bracket to deal with; the other big "scale" advantage with 600ESP mechanics is the aileron and pitch swashplate ears are at the rear of the swash with the elevator ear at the front.

Why is this "swash ear" positioning an advantage with scale?

In most scale applications, there is simply more room (width) at the rear of the doghouse to accommodate the left and right swash ears as shown in the photo below.

If those two ears were at the front, you would have to grind a fair amount of the doghouse away for swashplate & pushrod clearance.

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, quad copters 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.

Obey all restrictions, laws, and RC model registrations as they apply to flying RC aircraft in your area.


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.

Lastly, Please Read & Understand The Following. It Will Save Both Of Us Time, Headache, & Heartache.

If any of the information on this page doesn't make sense, or you don't understand it, please DON'T purchase one of these kits as it's likely too advanced for your current skill set. This is an advanced collective pitch RC helicopter kit for experienced RC helicopter builders and pilots. I unfortunately don't have the time or resources to hold customer's hands through the build and setup process in other words. If you are getting help from an experienced RC helicopter hobbyist / instructor, that is of course A-OK :-) 

600ESP Customer Feedback

Hi John, The 600 ESP has been hovering on a windy day in my back garden. I am very pleased with how smooth and locked in it is. This is going to make a great platform for the Bell 222. After many years flying with Futaba and Spektrum, I now fly all my helicopters with a Mikado V Control and Mikado Neo flybarless units. I also use Emcotec safety power switches on all helicopters including the 600ESP.

Happy Flying, Regards, David - UK

John, I’m very grateful to have found such a great resource of knowledge and experience like you. Especially someone who sincerely cares in helping pilots like myself gain and development  greater technical knowledge and skill for the fun and satisfaction of flying r/c helicopters. It would not have been possible for me to be flying my first scale ship without your help with the Phoenixtech 600ESP, electronic recommendations and tips and tricks on working with the fuselage. I will be ready to purchase from you my second 600 bird this fall for a winter build.

Anyway, I had my first flights Sunday which I wanted to share with you and I am so pleased with the performance of the Phoenixtech heli. I didn’t want to fly circuits until I burned through several battery packs. I think now, she is ready to go……

Dear Mr. Salt,

I wanted to relay how thrilled my husband was with the 600 ESP helicopter kit I purchased from you for his birthday early last month. Thanks for shipping it out so quickly and for all the help you gave me answering all my questions before making the purchase.

Most hobby shops I contacted wouldn't give me the time of day or gave me a very condescending attitude, likely because I was a woman! You on the other hand took a great deal of time explaining so much to me about bigger collective pitch RC helicopters and some of the drawbacks of giving one as a gift to someone who was still fairly new to the hobby. As you know, I took your advice into account, but still figured my husband could figure this out if he took his time.

As per your recommendation, my husband found a local RC heli flier in our area for help, and he had his first successful hover this past weekend. The smile on his face when he came home was priceless. Thanks again for all your help & time.

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,

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.
