It's my first real heli. I had some of the toy types, but this is a much
bigger step. The thing comes completely ready to fly, all you need to do is
charge the lipo battery with the provided balance charger, and put 8aa batteries
into the transmitter.
Everything worked perfectly right out of the box. I have some 15 flights on it
so far, with no mechanical issues whatsoever. The heli is mostly metal, it's
pretty hard to break.
I have been practicing all the basic maneuvers, and really getting the hang of
it. No crashes so far. I felt pretty comfortable after only a couple of
flights. I have been staying out of the wind, for the most part, but this
evening, I took it outside in a pretty fair 10mph breeze and had no real
problems with it, but I definitely recommend zero wind or indoors for your first
flights. More later, and some pics...
So far, so great...
