madmachinest68, i see you have been biten with the heli addiction! I often wonder why you just dont save the money you are spending on co-axials and fixed pitch heli's and get yourself a decent simulator like phoenix rc or real flight 6. Spend some time on the sim, if you wanted i would be willing to give you some one on one lessons! You would need either real flight 6 or phoenix a decent microphone and skype so we could actually talk in real time!

Last season was my first season flying i went from simming to flying a t-rex 700 gasser, i had some online lessons and found a local heli pilot that has been nothing but fantastic help and support!

If you want some help just fire me a pm and we can set up a online lesson.

For your first heli im not sure what route you want to take but i started out with a 550 hurricane, there where many reason i chose a bigger heli. Stability, visibility and full on pucker factor!!

cheers Keith

Thumbs up Re: made a descovery last night while flying my heli

I agree with Heli-Insane, a really good flight sim helps, but what is helping me along faster is the fact that I realized that once I was seriously addicted to this great hobby that bigger is better.

I find in all honesty if someone can and is serious about progressing in this hobby; a 500-550 helicopter will offer the most stability from a stock power to weight ratio and it's damn easier to see when in the air.

The most frustrating part about smaller heli's is they get "small" real quick when in the air. Its critical that you know the heli's orientation and if its too hard to tell which end is up so to speak then learning will be that much more difficult.

Best of luck in your heli adventures !!

and Good Health
