Q. Who are MIA Micro FLIGHT Kits good for ?
A. For anyone who truly enjoys building and flying miniature RC helicopters and wants to indulge in the pleasure and learning of building from a kit.
Q. What Materials are MIA Micro-FLIGHT Kits made from ?

A. MIA kits are made from Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machined Fiber-Glass or Carbon sheets, for things such  main frames, rotor heads, along with stainless steel shafts and molded high strength co-polymer parts, for gears, rotor hubs, swash plate, links, and landing gear, for the ultimate in strength and durability.

Q. Do I need special skills to build and fly ?

A. No, if you are familiar with building balsa models and already have some RC model hands on experience, MIA kits will be a breeze.

Q. How long does it take to build from a MIA kit ?
. Normally one evening or a few hours.
Q. What tools and  materials are required to complete a MIA kit ?
A. Standard RC hobby tools such as a hobby knife, scissors, mini screw drivers, masking tape, ruler, medium viscosity CA glue, and CA glue accelerator spray to help speed up assembly.  

Q. Are MIA helicopter kit's  mechanics complex, as on larger models ?
No, we have chosen to keep MIA  kits very simple, since this makes assembly, set-up, maintenance, repair, and flying considerably easier for the model builder-pilot.

Q. Can I use my exiting RC gear from my other micro helicopters ?
Yes, but please try to stay within the guidelines, of the suggested equipment, provided in the instructions,  with each kit,  for best results.

Q. How Durable are MIA Kits and Retrofits ?
MIA Kits are extremely durable,  because we use mostly glass and carbon fiber composites, metal and tough co-polymer plastic parts, as required, to make both our kits as well as our retrofit products almost indestructible. All this, combined, allows our products to withstand use and abuse, beyond what similar standard mass-produced products offer.

Q. If I ever need spare parts where can I order  them from ?
Parts are available direct from this MIA Micro-Flight web site or via our distributors. Via this site, simply go to the product section where it lists the specific part and click the add to shopping cart link button. Or simply email us indicating the part needed.

Q. How does the MIA Bumble Bee compare to other Sub-Micro helicopters ?
There is really no comparison, due to size and specific design. The MIA Bumble Bee was designed from ground up to be a true simple, highly durable, and almost maintenance-free Sub-Micro helicopter, with very stable and precise control characteristics to make it fly, as in the product videos.
Q. Which are MIA's most popular retrofits,  which one are recommended ?
We try to stay up to date with all brands of micro helicopters that have come out since the year 2000, a time when we first introduced the MIA Robin 280, a lightweight micro helicopter kit. Some of the more popular retrofits we make are our MIA G10 Frame and TUFF
Landing Gear kits. We make these for various helicopters.
Q. Is technical support help available?
Yes, we are glad to help our customers with technical questions about our products via our email listed under Contact Us.
