RC Helicopters: A Guide
If it is your first time to try it to fly even if you have the best RC helicopter you have to remember a few important things. There should always be a pre-flight and post flight checklist you need to follow in order that your RC helicopter flies smoothly and lands safely as well like every other real plane. Every time you fly a helicopter, before you take it up and after you’re done flying you may want to check all of these things first. These will guarantee that you don’t have a day of just buying parts and you will have a lot of good enjoyable hours on your helicopter with little things like these.
Make sure that before you fly you have to turn the radio on first then you plug in the helicopter which is the most important thing to do. It is important to note that turning on the helicopters first and then the radios which the little receiver goes into a standby mode and doesn’t link to the radio which everyone thinks they got a bad helicopter. Remember is to turn on the remote first and you won’t have all of those problems then you’re all set. When plugging in the helicopter it has a jar on board which you have to remember. You need to make sure that as soon as you plug it in set it down on a flat surface and let it be still. You got to wait for it to see the lights pop on. Moving it around after you have just plugged it on the gyro won’t know what ‘still’ is. After you plug it in you have to set it down so it knows what means to be still. It will fly extremely and radically if you move it thinking it is what you mean of being ‘still’. It wouldn’t fly at all after. Don’t forget to fly it with a fully charged battery.
Crashing it on your first flight, here is a side checklist you need to do first. First thing is your Y bar on top of the main helicopter blades should be free moving. Hitting it with your fingers it should be bouncing back and forth it only means that it is not binding. It should be able to move as freely as possible because this is what keeps your helicopter stable which is very important. If it is tight, lockdown or binding the means that the Y bar of the helicopter is going to fly radically.
