PostPost subject: Recomendations on first heli
Reply with quote

Evening,

So as a 1st year anni gift my wife went to the mall and bought a Yiboo uj 820. Whilst the thought counts and I was super excited, epic fail ensued. This was my first large rc, but the excitement was short lived this weekend. Though they say it can be flown outside, it will not entertain any breeze and soon crashes into whatever is in it's path. With a price tag of $150 and way too big for indoors, what are my options for a decent first rc that will indubitably seal my excitement for rc heli's?

Hi rizeld,
may i first say welcome to the helicopter addiction...lol... anyways my very fist heli was a DH9116 it is a 4 channel heli, very stable to fly and durable to crashes. I have also flown these big 3 channel co-axle helis and yes they hate the wind. but there are also modifications that you can do to make your big heli more "flyable" on light windy days. my recommendation is that if you want to have a good flying experience without breaking your pocketbook is try out the DH9116. there are plenty other 4 channel helis but this is just a start... happy flying.. let me know what you think

I've been reading that they have some issues IE tail rotors and flybar, but as I come to them I'm sure I will "engineer" as everyone else has. Laughing Ill let you know how this weekend works out.

ya the tail rotor tends to burn out quick, and the flybar will strike you canopy with some crashes, ive seen people bend their flybar at equal points on each side. i personally havent tried it, also here is a link for the walkera direct drive tail rotor. ive installed one on my dh9116 and it lasts 10 time longer than the stock motor

PostPost subject: RC Helicopters
Reply with quote

Ever wanted to fulfill your childhood dream of flying your own Remote Control Helicopter? With the improvement in Technology and cost efficiency, Flying an RC Helicopter can be fun and affordable. Generally speaking, as a beginner it's best to start off with Mini RC Helicopters as they are smaller, less expensive, and durable. Or if you are brave beginner, try out the 4 Channel helicopters under "Coaxial Helicopters" which is meant for those that are interested in making this their hobby.

Regards.
Andy.

I sure did, and have been flying it for a month now, I fly about 2 batteries a day during the week. Than try and put in like 20 mins a day with a sim. It has been a wild ride trying to fly, I think i've crashed as many times as it has come off the ground Smile but I've gotten the hang of it and only crash once every 3-4 batteries now.
