Good afternoon,

I am new to this site, the hobyy and have purchased a 53Q a while ago. It is a really nice heli and have tried to use it but wish to practice with a simulator first.

I would love to hear from anyone with a 53Q so we can share and swap ideas etc.
\Cheers AIR 495

Well I can say that it'd be best to practice on a sim first to get to know how flying really feels. That way you won't be wasting real money because initially you will crash. But if you keep the crashing in the sims the you'll learn a lot along the way.

Welcome Air495,

Fully agree with Midnite here, crash the sim not the ship. Don't give up until you can perform all the basic manouvers without crashing, THEN try the real thing.

Great choice! You'll love the 53Q once you get comfortable flying. Don't be scared of your helicopter..believe it or not you own one of the most stable learning helis on the planet. Be more worried of the wind than the heli. The co-axial design makes it inherently stable and pretty tough to pitch over on calm days, but any wind will make your life miserable. Just don't be timid on the throttle on take off...they need full throttle to be stable during takeoff. Once your up, stay behind the helicopter at all times that way you don't have to worry about your orientation....but enjoy it...I LOVE the 53Q...like everybody else though...SIMs are MUCH cheaper to wreck!

Hello Walkeraus,

I just received your reply. The reason I purchased that brand was the fact that I had heard good things about it and also the body being the Dauphin is the exact replica of the Air Ambulance/police helicopter in Melbourne, Australia. I love the Dauphine's. I will keep in touch to get ideas from you above Walkera. Thanks

AIR 495.
