Question: Is it true that Model Helicopters are
hard to fly and will break my account before I learn it?
Answer: NO! This is not true at all. Model
Helicopters are more difficult to fly than Model Airplanes, but as long as you wish to
learn it you will. Let's put this way, if you thing I'd like to fly model Helicopters you
probably won't but if want to fly them you probably will. A 30 size Helicopter might cost
more than twice of a trainer airplane but it is not build out of balsa. With proper help you
will be able to reduce your crashed to a minimum.
Question: What is the best Helicopter for a
Answer: In my opinion, the best Beginner
Helicopter is the Kyosho Nexus S. It's easy to build, setup, mantain and replacement parts
are very cheap. Also it flyies good out of the box. It should be built with a O.S. 32 SX-H
engine for great power and reliability. All radio equipment should be Futaba or JR, although,
I prefer Futaba. The Futaba 8UHPS is the best radio when it comes to cost/benefit in the
market, but the Futaba T6XH will also do the job as well.
Parts of an R/C Helicopter
Many modellers agree that a model Helicopters is the most interesting and
challenging type of model available. It can do everything that the full-size can do and can
even fly manoeuvers that would be impossible or too dangerous to do in a real one, like loops,
rolls and inverted flight.

From Ground Up!
Here I'll try to teach you, your first steps into flying a model Helicopter. The lessons will
go from the very beginning (How to Hover) to the the 3D flying (I hope I can get thru that).
More lessons will be added gradually as I get time to write them.
