Hi there, and a very warm welcome to a new addition to
the ChopperAddict Web sites' newest addition toward helping you to
join the wonderful world of Radio
Controlled helicopter flying successfully.
The entire section that this page leads you to has
been designed & written by a helicopter buddy of mine John
E Wilson and my deepest thanks go to him for all the hard
work he has put into this section. John is an old hand with
helicopters, as I am myself, and what he doesn't know about setting
them up isn't enough to worry about.
The section is
not about flying your helicopter at all, it is even
more important than that.
wholly with how you can ensure your helicopter is set up correctly,
which sadly is not the case when you receive it, despite being sold
to you as, and being marked up as "READY TO FLY", they
simply ARE NOT READY TO FLY out of the boxes.
None of the
stuff you will learn as you work through Johns' amazingly detailed
work is difficult, and should not put you off in the least.
However, if your helicopter is NOT SETUP CORRECTLY - the simple
truth is that IT WILL NOT FLY CORRECTLY EITHER.
So as a
beginner, you are caught in a Catch22 situation, and that is exactly
what Johns' sterling efforts here are designed to help you avoid.
helicopter is setup correctly, it is quite amazing at how much
easier it is to fly, and how many less crashes you are likely to
have with it.
I hope to add
similar special sections to the web site over time covering Learning
To Hover etc
So right now,
snuggle down in your computer chair and start reading how to do the
heli setup work REALLY WELL
HERE, or on the picture below
and you will be
on your way into the very capable hands of John...
