Have you ever wanted to fly radio controlled helicopters, but never known how to start? Read on to find out how.
Start off with a 2 channel helicopter or 3 channel. These should be easy to fly and some you can fly inside. Most of these helicopters will be pretty small so do not fly them outside in the wind or else you can end up breaking your helicopter, someone else's stuff or hurting someone.
Don't fly far away on your first flight and try to have a fair idea of the range. before buying any RC model or toy make sure that you can use the frequency and that it wont interfere with anything else or get interfered with. If this happens you can end up not being able to control your helicopter and it will do what it wants ( it is most likely to crash ).
Try to avoid buying a tiny little micro heli as the tail motors tend to wear out after a weeks use and the batteries only last for about 15 charges.
Once you have mastered flying a 2 channel or a 3 channel, You can buy a 4 channel.If you have only used a 2 channel, try to use a 3 channel first. The best and easiest to fly is a ESKY lama V3 or V4 or a blade CX2.
Know what kind of batteries you have.If they have LIPO batteries never ever run them completely flat, as it is bad for the battery. If you are using a NIMH battery try to use up all the power so that you will get a longer charge next time so you can fly longer. If the battery is low do not fly or just fly a little bit off the ground so that if it cuts off then you won't do any damage.
Do not hold down one of the tilting sticks or you might flip your helicopter.Just use little pulses on the stick so that you don't end up over tilting.
When you are buying a helicopter, Coaxial helicopters are very stable ( coaxial means it has two counter rotating blades ).
