The first thing to know is that this service is designed to
allow you to spend one full day with me in my hanger/workshop,
learning how to repair and setup your helicopter.
Naturally this means that you will have to come up here to
Blackpool, where I live...
||On the left is my newly
expanded workshop facility (august 2010) with a lot more
bench space to let me cope with the hospital patients and my
new helicopter builds and setups.
In all of the previous seminars I have done, the
"student" brings their own helicopter, which usually
requires some form of repair as well. We can then use that to
show you exactly how to repair thing correctly. I you want to
run through it using one of mine, that is also fine.
We start off by discussing what you think is

setup, starting with the servo arms all the way through to getting
the head set correctly, the pitch range correct, and tracking as
perfect as possible.
Throughout this, you can ask any questions at all that you
may have, and ask me to repeat procedures if you are not sure what I
A cold lunch of sandwiches will be provided + tea/coffee
during the day as needed.
At the end of the day, the aim is to take your helicopter
out and test fly it to ensure all is setup as well as possible, and
then you are given the opportunity to fly it as well to see how it
feels to you.
If you are
planning to come up to Blackpool and stay overnight to have 1 or
more days with ChopperAddict, we can suggest
some good local B&B establishments that are close to
