hellyflyer -

this is my first post...am a rc heli beginner....and i own a co-ax 3ch heli and recently got the 6ch honeybee cp3...and tried flying it without proper training gear and training and crashed it....waiting for repair parts now....wanted to know how difficult is it to learn to fly these helis and how much practice did it take for you to fly one of these...

[Admin Note] Split from http://www.rcindia.org/rc-people/post-your-hangar/msg11159/#msg11159 as this is a topic on its own

Just spend some time on a good sim, making sure you have hover the heli, and fly it around, and land it very very gradually at a specific spot. You can manage on your own after that. 

Trying to fly a 6ch heli without any prior experience will most likely result in a significant dent on  your pocket !

Trex 450 DFC



Well, it takes a lot of practice + knowledge of setting up the heli.

Small Tip:
-After you put in the battery, lift the heli from the main rotor cap & make sure the skids are parallel to the ground. If not, adjust the battery position.
-Don't over-tighten the main blades - you should be able to move it by hand

Try to figure out why/how you crashed - let us also know

EDIT - BTW, I learnt to hover on a Honeybee v2 (4ch FP). After this, i was able to hover a Belt CP with ease.

Heli=Diff parts flying together in close formation



I don't know How I missed this post  Bang Head

Well I guess you got perfect directions from our Senior members like Sujju and Anwar.

Practice makes a man perfect ..this principle works on every thing. So Sim is the key practice all oriantiations on the sim start with tail in hover then side ways and then nose in oriantiation (very important). If you know the oriantiations well if will reduce your chances of crash by 80% ( giving 20% to the wind gusts)

Nehal,

Reflex and Phoenix are good sims but if you don't find ...FMS 8.5 is also not bad to learn oriantations.


Thanks

hi guys...just a small "clichéd" advise to all of you....flying a fixed pitch heli IS difficult but a good amount of practice on the sim is worth every second of your time...i practice on realflight and it is really close to the real deal! and finally fulfilled my dream of flying a trex 250 !  Cool
cheers
happy flying forever

I am a heli nutter and gotten into planes too..



Free RC sims  helisim RC: http://www.marksfiles.net/HeliSim/ good enough to start

FMS is BAD.. dont even try.

If you have a mac... here is one.. THE BEST : HELI-X... its awesome with the features it has. Beautiful! .. its not exactly free.. but there is demo u can play with. But for a mac user... except for installing a parallels (40dollars. about 2000rs) plus the cheapest sim is clearview sim .. (40 bucks again.. rs2000) , u can get this heli-x for ($80 i think) and its hassle free and much better.

Apart from that.. I second whats said above. SIM SIM SIM SIM!! you need it! do anything on your heli only if you have done it on your sim atleast 20 times.. literally without crashing. Will save u a lot of money! Smiley

Or get like a Blade MSR to start in heli's.. that little heli looks small.. But is a beast. I have done 40kmph passes on that thing.. its awesome!

Dont crash Heli, Crash Tx



Think hard before you decide which helicopter to buy. If your heli doesn’t come with a simulator, get one. FMS is free to download. To learn to fly a heli you need, patience - practice. If you want it hard enough, you will get there.

There is nothing more graceful than flying collective pitch RC helicopter with a shinny scale fuselage. At the end, the most important thing is you are having fun whether that means flying tame or insane, collective pitch allows you to do both equally well.  The more time you spend on your tx, the better you get. They are fairly easy to fly but hard to master.......

Hovering takes a few hours to learn for most people. The controls are very sensitive and any input on one of the three controls requires inputs on the other two. The helicopter likes to move around so getting it to stay still at a hover a few feet above the ground, is quite challenging.

Actually, helicopters aren't that difficult to fly. Almost anyone who has enough coordination to drive a car can probably learn to fly a helicopter. It does take time and practice, and some maneuvers, such as hovering a helicopter, feel as though they are impossible in the beginning.
