One of the reasons I enjoy wattflyer is truely the foks here. I am sure I ask a lot of repetiirive questions and no one here flames me or anyone else for it or makes me feel dumb in any way. I love that so to all of you I say Thanks. So here goes another question. I recently bumped into a friend who had found out that I had been learning to fly my super cub airplane and also heard that I had been looking into all things RC. He offered to sell me his Honeybee King 2 RTF kit for a mere 50 dollars (I think it was a good deal who am I to know) all I had to purchase was a new motor at apx 10 dollars plus S/H. Well I thought to myself why not seemed like a good deal to me. So I did it and am researching an order for the motor. Any how with that said. What is your opinion on this type of Heli? Anyone own it? Make a good or bad first time Heli? Since it a 3d Heli, Should I leave it on the shelf and wait for more experience with Helis? Just curiouse, I have heard both the good the bad and the ugly about this Heli and wanted some real honest opinions and where else would I get it but right here. I have also quoted Hank who gave some real good stuff to tom and it is a really good read. Hank you are daman and to Chelle you ar dawoman.
Eagerly awaiting you thoughts
Oh by the way Im clueless too Helis other than a cobra indoor Heli I got for christmas which is actually realy fun.
Pleased to meet you
Your best and easiest option is to find an instructor besides the flight training having some one with knowledge to help with the setting up and trimming before flight is invaluable
Thats the hardest part normally for the novice
If not and you have to learn on your own
Heres Heli flight school and how i learned to fly with a CP PRO 6 years ago
Do use training gear until you feel comfortable operating them
Get a good sim and practice, practice, practice, i like Phoenix for helis
No 1 rule if you get into trouble cut the throttle, better to have the heli drop then thrash around
And do practice extreme caution while operating RC Helicopters as once they reach a certain size and power the rotor blades on these can damage property and inflict serious even fatal injuries if not treated with the proper respect and safety procedures
Best of luck with your heli flight training
