Question Can I fly a Heli-Max Axe CP-L?

I'm a begginer in heli. And this is my FIRST purchase in Helicopter. I want to know if am I able to control this Axe CP-L?

I'm dispost to buy the training gear to i training, and buy other sparse battery 910mAh, and some parts...like new skids or blades and rotor blades, screws!

This is really not a beginner's helicopter.

You would be better off getting a fixed pitch like the honeybee FP or even a simpler one like the co-axel Blade CX2 to learn on.

Considering i trained on a blade CP I would say you definetly can be able to fly it with patience and radds.

Be prepared for a crash cost though, luckily my total crash cost so far is $54 (after 1.3 years) which is very little considering I've already into nose in and flying circuits.

But as with all things it depends on the pilot if this is what you intend on training on then you need to like a challange have a strong resolve to learn it and not be discouraged by crashes / failures. Also a simulator would be helpful in the initial stages.

Alot of people recommend lower birds but to be honest buying a higher end bird has the advantage that you'll get more hours of use out of it before you feel the need to upgrade. The blade CP for example is still limited by pilot not by heli ability, until I learn inverted I won't have come close to blade's capability.

I think it comes with them . I've flown a friends, very smooth. And if you fly it on their "beginner" mode, I think it was called that, its extremely docile. Its not too bad a 3D either. Oh and just in case you were wondering... it flys just as nice upside down .
