    okay, thanks. i have decided to buy trex 500. i hope i;ll know how to assemble it, if not, i know where to look for advice 😉

    The 250 isn’t great …
    The 250 isn’t great for beginners – it is small and hard to fly – requiring constant correction. This isn’t so bad – what really makes it tricky for beginners is that it is hard to adjust correctly. You need to be able to fly it to get it right – it took maybe 20 flights before mine would fly right, and now it’s well-behaved, but when it was new it really wanted to crash itself every time. The 450 and 500 electrics are much better for beginners – more tolerant of setup issues.

    thank you, i really …
    thank you, i really appreciate your efforts, the build videos and lessons. in fact i’m new in heli hobby, and i’m planning to buy a trex 250. do you think that’s a good choice? it’s cheaper than the higher clases, spare parts are also cheaper.

    Generally the …
    Generally the bigger ones will move slower, that’s why I’m using the Dominion 90 in the video. No helicopter is stable – I’m making it that way. If I wasn’t making constant small corrections, this helicopter would be going all over the place. You can’t see all the work I’m doing to keep it in one spot – because the radio image is too small. That’s one thing I don’t like about this video. I’ll be trying to do some ‘real’ stick-cam videos with my helicopter today, so check back for that.

    nice lessson, but can anyone tell what helicopter should i use in aerofly deluxe? i turned off all weather conditions, but no helicopter stay so stable like this in one in the video. thx

    Yeah I may do that …
    Yeah I may do that sometime… but right now it’s summer time and I’m busy doing all the flying I can. I was stuck inside in the winter when I made this video. I’m trying to figure out how to do stick-cam videos with my real helicopters, but it didn’t work the last time I tried it.

    Yes helicopters are …
    Yes helicopters are tricky. Not like planes where you can just let it fly by itself. You’ve got be ahead of a helicopter – know what it’s about to do and correct before it happens. You just need practice to develop the ability to see the future 🙂

    You make this look so dang easy! lol. I have been working in the sim only and it’s harder than I thought it would be. Learn before you burn!

    It is an override …
    It is an override switch that you set up and when you turn it on, the throttle goes to zero, regardless of where you have the sticks. ALL helicopters should be set up with this, for safety mostly, but also for the purpose of auto-rotations. See my DX7 setup video for how to set it up.

    Great Vid 🙂 Got this stuff sorted unfortunately broke my only set of landing skids (everything else is fine) 🙂 so gotta wait till i get new ones! Just wanted to ask (language confusion) which is the ‘Throttle Hold’ you talk about before you crash?

    No not really. I make no claims in either direction. I am a person – most everything else is unimportant.

    Looks a lot safer than flying real birds! At leadt your feet stay planted on the ground.

Got something to say?
