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.  

It deals 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.

Once your 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 

Just CLICK HERE, or on the picture below 
and you will be on your way into the very capable hands of John...
