STORM 430 Semi-Metal Edition
A Low Cost Practice Model for Outdoor Helicopter Learners

STORM 430 Semi-Metal Edition has got a "Huge" selling point among all 450 class helicopters , adopting the best design and geometry, combine with the use of low cost but great quality material (Aluminum Frame + Plastic Parts), creating a perfect "Practice Helicopter" for outdoor heli beginners and a perfect Platform for serious 3D masters to play hardcore 3D aerobatics movements.

The STORM 430 is using Aluminum Frame for greatest stability, combines with Plastic Rotor Head Parts (Semi-Metal Swashplate) and Plastic Tail Gear Box for lower repair cost for beginners. However, for those who demands for 100% 3D performance, you may choose the option "Aluminum Part Upgrades", it includes a Aluminum Rotor Head Set and Tail Unit, just install them and you get a championship winning helicopter. STORM 430 is such a great platform for all of you, isn't it?

It is 100% Assembled and Ready-to-Fly! Included a 3800KV brushless motor, 30A ESC, ROCK-5 Head Lock gyro, four high speed servos, 11.1v 2200mAh 20C Li-Po Battery, 2.4GHz radio system, durable plastic canopy, wooden main blades, high strength ball links and stainless steel linkage balls on the whole unit, featuring wear resistance, and anti-oxidization, they are all best equipments in this price range.


Great to be the First Outdoor Helicopter for Beginners
Video is showing the basic 12 o'clock, 9 o'clock, 3 o'clock, and the hardest 6 o'clock (nose in) position, all beginners must go thru these basics. Each position must be well trained before moving to another position.

Aggressive 3D action available
It offers collective pitch control that will let helicopter pilots to fly in almost any direction. Transitioning from forward flight to hover with smooth, solid control is a cinch and negative pitch is a breeze for aerobatics like loops and rolls. Don't ms-understand that the stock plastic parts can't play 3D, in fact, this Storm 430 can fly 3D out of box!


100% Pre-Assembled
It's 100% assembled, you can have it flying in just a few minutes out of the box. Just a quick charge of the battery and you are ready for lift off!

Best Center of Gravity
STORM 430 is 100% same with the champion winning 450 helicopter, same servo mount and body frame. It has the best geometry and weight balance, great benefit for Beginners and Experts

The Best Flight Control System
Using Bell and Hiller two systems mixing control. Through simple structure of Bell control system, power-saving of Hiller system and CCPM control, can simultaneously control 3 servos for AILE, EVLE, PIT 3 actions. This CCPM control system is great for 3D flying control and extending life cycle of servos.


High Performance Power System
This helicopter is combined with STORM 3800KV high performance brushless motor and 30A STORM Speed Controller for great power and efficiency. The brushless motor is equipped with out-runner cooling system. It solves the over-heat problem of many brushless motor on the market. Better cooling makes longer flight time and more aggressive 3D flight available. Also included in this ready-to-fly kit is a 11.1v Lithium battery with high capacity (2200mAh) and high output 20C discharge rate.


STORM High Speed Micro Servo - MS-90G
STORM 430 Semi-Metal Edition is equipped with four STORM FORCE MS-90G High Torque Servos. Able to do a great job for cyclic controls and rudder stability.



High Precision Head Lock Gyro
STORM ROCK-5 Head Lock Gyro + Storm MS-90G for tail pitch control, easy to setup and great respond, they can stabilize the helicopter dramatically. Helicopter heading may changed by side-wind and other meteorological changes, and varieties of helicopter attitude changes are automatically cancelled, thanks to the Head Lock Gyro, the tail rudder operation becomes easy, making it easier to hover or 3D actions. It is perfect for both beginners and experts.


Smooth Pitch Travel
Adopting Ball Joint Linkage and Ball Bearing Tail Pitch pivot point, the tail pitch movement is silky smooth, you got precise amount of tail wind from the tail rotor by the stock rudder servo or high-end rudder servos.

High Strength Ball Links and Stainless Steel Linkage Balls
Using new high strength ball links and stainless steel linkage balls on the whole unit, feature wear resistance, anti-oxidization.

STORM 2.4GHz Radio System
This helicopter is equipped with the STORM 2.4GHz Programmable Radio System, you can adjust all kinds of common parameters for a RC Helicopter using a PC computer. Simply connect the Transmitter to the computer using the USB cable provided, and launch the setup program that is included, then you will be able to set the Common settings. This radio system also has "Lock On" features, it locks the same frequency ensuring much improved reliability and peace of mind when flying, you do not need to bind every time you turn on the Heli. Also, 2.4GHz is the standard of new generation radio system because it has a lot of advantages.


Anti-Interference & Higher Reliability
Operating at 2.4 GHz puts the radio control out of the frequency range of any 'noise' generated by the other electronic components on your helicopter - such as the brushless motor, Electronic speed controller, Gyro,
Servos and any metal to metal noise - eliminating interference and glitching that can affect traditional frequency system.


Longer Transmission Distance & Lower Power Consumption
SSST (STORM SPREAD SPECTRUM TECHNOLOGY) offers longer transmission distance and minimizes power consumption.

Faster Response Time
2.4 Gigahertz systems offers quicker, more responsive control, when compared to a standard frequency system.

No Frequency Control Required
A main characteristic of 2.4 Gigahertz equipment from a RC model club’s point of view is that no frequency control is needed. Eliminating the need to check everyone else's channel numbers, prior to flying. No more worries about turning up at a club with the wrong crystal in your Tx.

STORM 430 Decal Plastic Canopy
Good looking and high quality, durable Plastic Canopy for beginners.


High Capacity Battery
Hyper-Lithium 11.1V 2200mAh 20C High Power Li-Po Battery provides over 30A peak current for the 3800KV brushless motor that allows aggressive 3D flight.
