Product Review: The Thunder Tiger E-325 Mini Titan Electric Helicopter

The Mini Titan Kit comes with a brushless motor and 40 A speed control. To make your heli flight ready, you will need a transmitter, receiver, gyro, four servos and a minimum 3-S 2100 Lithium Polymer battery. You will also need to purchase a battery charger such as the Electri-Fly Triton Jr. The Mini Titan Kit does require assembly, however I completed mine in about 3 hours, so the assembly is not a long, arduous procedure. Building the head is a bit tedious, but the building of the main frame and tail is quite simple. The one piece main frame is super strong and light weight and is attached to a molded once piece landing skid by a removable base plate. The Mini Titan offers precise tail pitch control and driven tail autorotation systems. The Mini Titan also offers the convenience of having the entire tail assembly detach and unplug, making transporting and storing your Mini Titan much easier. Fully assembled, the Mini Titan is 25 3/4 inches long and weights a mere 26 1/2 ounces, making it the perfect heli to fly almost anywhere. You can take it to a flying field and open it up, or just hover it around in your own back yard.

Similar to the popular T-Rex 450 heli, the Mini Titan flies just as well, if not better, and for a much cheaper price. With this little heli, you will definitely get your moneys worth. The Mini Titan has 3-D aerobatic capabilites making it extremely fun to fly. With changeable Bell-Hiller mixing rations for different flying styles and a high positioned battery tray for better aerobatics, there are very few maneuvers the Mini Titan can’t perform. The set up and stability of the Mini Titan makes it fly great even in windy conditions. I’ve flown mine in winds of up to 15 MPH with no problems. Whether you are a beginner, or a seasoned flier, the Mini Titan is a great investment. The only thing that I personally didn’t like about the Mini Titan, is that it comes with a set of wood rotor blades. While many people that I spoke to said the performance of the blades was fine for them, I myself found them to be too flimsy and had problems with them the first time I flew my Mini Titan. That is a problem that is easily fixed though, by buying good quality carbon fiber blades. In my opinion, parts availability for the Mini Titan is wonderful and it seems to be extremely easy to find any replacement parts you might need. Also, I find that the cost of replacement parts for the Mini Titan is very low, making it a great helicopter for those who don’t have a large amount of money to sink into their hobby.

All in all, I think the Mini Titan is an excellent helicopter. It provides the perfect combination of flying stability and agility for 3-D flying, and is worth every penny spent on it and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves to fly RC.
