Re: What size blades?

Not sure that is exactly how you heard it. It probably was a bigger heli flies easier as it has bigger blades . All in all it is the total mass of the heli that contributes to that. As I posted in another thread a small heli maybe fine for young guys to learn on but a large heli is much easier for older persons. Reason being hand and eye coordination.Hope that helps.

Thought for the day

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.

If you can't eat it or hump it.

Pee on it and walk away.
