Does anyone have one of these. I won one at the GAFF and don't fly helecopters. Wondering how the radio is set up for something like this.

This is the second version of these helicopters, it came with the gyro and mixer plus all the other goodies, all I need to put in it is the micro servos.

I have one, as do several others in our club.

I wouldn't recommend them as a beginner heli, they're much harder to fly than your average 30 size heli.

That being said, they are a lot of fun and, with a 2s LiPoly battery you can expect flight times exceeding 15 minutes (the stock battery gives about 5 minutes)! They will not handle even the slightest breeze so forget flying outdoors except in early morning or late evening ... or just before a storm.
But that's the beaty of this little machine. I have a ball hovering around the basement, landing on end tables etc.

I also take mine to indoor meets, gymnasiums are the perfect venue for this heli. On that note, there's a head stiffener modification you need to make once you're ready to break out of a hover....

The stock motor does burn out after 50 or so flights but replacements are about $10 ... I'm on my third.

Great fun for when the weather isn't co-operating, you can't get to the field, or you're tired of the limitations of a simulator.

Radio setup is dead easy as covered in the enclosed manual. Just be extra cautious with throttle reverse the first time you plug in.
