Hello All
I am very new to this have never tried to fly a R/C anything. I purchased a cheap 2 channel (toy) I have been told. Anyway I have got it off the ground ,just maybe 6 inches and all it wants to do is go around in circles can not control the tail ?The helicopter was advertised as a Huges 300 if that tell you any thing.

Any coment would be great

Thank You

Hi Jerry,

I've never flown a 2 ch helicopter but from what I'm told and what I've seen on their boxes, they can only do two things - to go up and down and go in circles. So if I'm not mistaken, your helicopter is doing exactly what it is supposed to do. You can't control the tail.

If you want to get started flying a helicopter that can go (almost) anywhere, you have to buy a four-channel model such as a walkera 54 or a blade cx. These use co-axile rotors and are more stable, making them great for beginners.

Hope that helps.

This hobby is well worth it if you have the time, patience, and a little dinero. Investing in a co-axial and learning to fly it nose-in will give you a great start on 3D models

Totally agree! Nowadays it's getting cheaper and cheaper too. Laughing

"Micro Flyer". This little electric is so cheap and easy to fly. Plus you can fly it in the office while on a break. I found mine at BrookStone







(fun to chase the cat too!)

On these two channel toys there is usually a little screw on the helicopter receiver. You have to take the canopy off. Anyway, turn the screw in small increments and it should slow the tail down. Turning it one way causes the tail to rotate clockwise and turning it the other direction will cause it to rotate counterclockwise. just mess with it until the tail doesn't move anymore. Good luck. Hopefully yours has this adjustment screw.
