How do you mean "deals with"?
Do you want to purchase one or spares?
Learn to fly?

There is a model shop in John O Groats if thats any use. I can give you the guys phone number if you like.

There is the Caithness Model Aero Club. A few members have IC helicopters, but most now fly the smaller electric versions, indoor included.

I fly fixed wing model aircraft, although I have tried helicopters on a few occasions.

Best to get some proper instruction first then. They are VERY difficult and dangerous to fly.
Ive seen numerous beginners put off because they tried themselves and wrecked the helicopter in the process.

A nitro helecopter if that crashes into you the blades will do you serous harm it will take chunks out of u its a dangerous if you dont no what you are doing.
The most important think about buying any helicopter is how easy it is to get parts because trust me you will spend a fortune on parts and you will be doing more repairs than flying thats the joys with having a hobby like thaT.
You would be far better of buying an indoor helicopter like a blade cx2 to start of with until u master it then move to an out door electric helicopter then to a nitro
I have blade cx2 indoor helicopter had a lot of fun playing with it but i spent a fortune on blades and shafts.
Remember u cant fly a nitro helicopter anywere in the public you need permission on private land plus u need insurance as well which you get at any model club because if that helicopter crash into anyone you will be sued big time???
Honestly do yourself a favour and forget about the nitro helicopter until you have more experience and start with an indoor one first.
You can get a remote control indoor electric airwolf helicopter very smart.
