Own shower as such model helicopter GEN H-4 has not - in fact, here there is only a chair for the pilot and the aircraft controls that essentially facilitates the weight of the aircraft. Any discomfort for the pilot during the execution of overshooting is not created, since even at high travel speeds, the drag minimum, however, the use of a protective helmet still is one of the main requirements in the operation of this model. To transport any cargo helicopter GEN H-4 for several reasons presented above, it is not adapted.
