To - How to learn to hover a
helicopter for total newbies
page is designed to try to tell a total newbie pilot what to do, and NOT
to do, when he first gets an RC helicopter, and hopefully - BEFORE he
tries to fly it.
IF YOU DO NOT CARE ABOUT
SAFETY OR ESSENTIAL SETUP,
YOU CAN GO DIRECTLY TO MY TUTORIALS
DOWNLOAD THE FULL "LEARNING TO HOVER" TUTORIAL.
This does not really apply to CO-AXIAL
Both Fixed pitch and even more so,
Collective pitch Helicopters are difficult to fly, and few if any pilots
manage to get one off the ground successfully the first time they try to
do so. This usually ends up with the rotor blades hitting
something, or even the ground, doing damage to the helicopter.
So if you have recently acquired a
helicopter, the very first piece of advice is
PLEASE DO NOT RUSH OUT & TRY TO
FLY IT STRAIGHT AWAY.
I know this sounds like a crazy thing to
tell anyone, but for the sake of a couple of days reading some of the
information available on the Web, you will have a far better chance of
NOT DAMAGING YOURSELF, OR YOUR NEW HELICOPTER, if you follow the advice
these documents provide.
If you want to get hold of one such
tutorial, you can CLICK HERE to go to my
own Tutorials page and have a look at the range of information on there
for new pilots.
Also it is worth noting that although your
helicopter probably arrived with "Ready to Fly" or similar all
over the box - IT IS NOT READY TO FLY, this merely means that all the
bits needed to make it fly are present in the box, but it NEVER EVER
MEANS THAT THE HELICOPTER WILL FLY straight out of the box.
There are many things that need to be
checked, and again, there are many tutorial out there on this site that
tell you what these are and how to perform these essential checks.
HAPPY FLYING AND
