That's impressive :) - I've always wondered, where can you buy the pieces or the pack to build them. When you go to the toy shops etc here in Perth, it seems the larger more advanced designs are not sold. Hmmm...

I just saw at least 3 Helitaks filling up at the dam near the Reid Highway/Tonkin Highway intersection - and a smoke plume to the North.

That was for the 2nd alarm grass fire at Whiteman. Seems to be under control they have released all five helitacs.

Just found out today that HNZ contract has not been taken up again this year for WA. So that means no more squirrels for us this 2013/14 season. Instead it will be McDermott Aviation with Bell 214's

Wow, that's going to be a change. Where will they be operating from?
