Heli-Max Joe William Richardson
The Heli-Max range was initially distributed by "great Planes" of Illinois and was basically, re-badged versions of other far east manufacturers products. Started off in 2004 with a Picollo 'clone' called the Rotofly which had a semi scale body of the Hughes 300 and came complete with 'Futaba' re-badged radio equipment. Following this they distributed a 400 size helicopter that was manufactured by ARK being their Ark X400 to which Heli-Max just added the prefix M to give MX 400.
Below is a list of introduction dates for Heli-Max helicopters and 'major' upgrades; I have not included minor kit variations, change of body colours etc.
