RC Helicopters & RC toys

#1

RC Helicopter is one of my dream toy when I was young and I believe it is the same for most of you too. I finally get one about 1 month ago and start this hobby for fun. I am completely new to RC helicopter and do not have any kind of experience before. So I start this topic to share my experience with you if you plan to get one too. >> How to start, what you need to know, how to learn to fly, how to control, useful flying tips and so on. I will try my best to help you get start and fly.

My first helicopter is the one called ESky Lama 2 (picture of the helicopter - if you like to see how it fly, you can watch this flying video). It is similar to one called Blade CX which you can find in the local shop but cheaper. I paid US$ 149 shipped to my house last month.

I will take some pictures and prepare the information you may like to know about how to get start - based on my experience as beginners. I hope it will be useful to help you get start this hobby.

NOTE: As I am new to rc helicopter too. So the information I posted is not professional, but from a view of beginner.

Many of the p-choppers use ImageShack for their pictures.

Have fun with your choppers!
