As an accomplished RC Airplane pilot, I recently decided to try my hand at RC Helicopters, and it started at Christmas this year.
I got an E-Flite Blade mSR micro helicopter – its a blast to fly! But this little guy is only practical inside or on a very calm day.
So a friend suggested I try my hand at a bigger more challenging collective pitch chopper.
To keep costs down (as I know I’m going to crash it) I went with a 450 size clone helicopter – parts are cheap & there is a lot of information available on the net (here is a great example).
I’m learning steady with the big one, the little one is much more forgiving but has its limitations.
