Not a plane bit I recently picked up a Blade MCP X V2. And have promptly crashed it multiple times lol. These cp heli's are insanely hard to fly.

Tips for a rookie collective pitch pilot?

So I'll make this short. Wanted to get into rc flight (I've done land rc for a long time) and picked up a coaxial heli, 4 channel. After that, I got a Gamma 370 plane. The coax got crashed by a...

All good options. I'm curious, I see videos of folks flying in what appear to be school gymnasiums. How does one go about getting permission for that?

Where do you fly?

Don't need to give any specifics but just curious. For me personally, I'm lucky because I have a decent size soccer field about 2 minutes from my house that I fly at. And it's rarely occupied. A lot...

Very cool. I just have the Ares 6HPA that came with my Gamma. It does have a switch for "delta/elevon" so I guess that mixes the 2 channels? Man I'm getting excited now. I'm definitely gonna have to...

Oh man. They need to make one big enough to fit a transmitter in. I know they have actual transmitter gloves, but a heated one would be amazing. Good fine nonetheless!

Just a few minutes of me flying my Ares Gamma 370

Had the girlfriend come out with me and get some video of my Gamma 370. It's all stock, 3 channel (no aileron). Nothing fancy.

Thanks guys. I ended up getting the Gamma 370. I've flown it twice and I am having an absolute blast with it. I'm a total flying newb and I can even handle ~5-10mph wind with it. It's a great flyer.

Any negative consequence to running a higher mAh battery?

I'm flying an Ares Gamma 370. It came with a 1000mAh 2s1p 20c battery. Would it hurt anything to run, say for example, a 1300mAh 2s1p 25c in it? Would it just give me longer flight time, or would it...
