Heli newbie in Chilliwack

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
First off want to say hi to everyone. Looks like a great site for info and I`m going to need it.

Long story short, about 5 years ago I bought the Jr Venture CP .30 (ARF) not knowing anything about rc heli`s . At that time also picked up a flybox all the tools, and gadgets to get me going. Ended up getting the Jr xp8301a radio at that time also. Took my time and built according to my manuals. Then fired up the realflight g2 sim. Spent many hrs in there. Then that was it. It got put on a shelf to just recently. I have to learn all over again. A couple years back I picked up a blade cp with training gear and got it hovering but then the machine got a ghost in the machine. It just had a mind of its own.Throttling up on its own etc. It got dangerous. Some say it was radio interference but I live on acreage in the middle of nowhere so I ended up shelving that too. What sparked my interest again was the wife came home with a (and don`t laugh) micro mosquito. I`m going to fly(well crash) that jr now if it kills me.

So I`m looking for some rc heli gurus in the Fraser Valley that I can learn from and help me confirm my setup etc. Willing to pay for your time if that helps.

I might just go and get myself another electric heli because I don`t trust the blade anymore.Unless somebody has any ideas about that one.

Ok essay is over.
Thanks for any info
