RC Helicopters
#1
I've been reading this training websight due to the fact that I also purchased a 2 foot model for the 10 year old for his BD in about 5 months. As I told my wife. IF he takes the little one seriously and learns it, I'll break out the $200 one early.
Well I've been reading this training sight(recommended by my son) and have decided to let Kalob start reading it know and sort of let the cat out of the bag as it were so he can begin TRAINING X-mas day. Read it over and let me know what ya'll think.

Mark,
I have been flying into R/C heli's for over 20 years..& Have taught many to fly...I took a look at your link...Not what I would recommend..One of the best learning books out there is this http://www.amazon.com/Rays-Complete-Heli...B000IXPO5K Although it is a bit dated the theory ..setup..techniques..etc..Are all valid still today..He does have an updated volume here..[url]http://www.rayshelitech.com/#/category/0[/url]
The biggest most important thing with r/c helis is setup...
Here's a pic of 1 of my gas jobs...I also fly electric..& I just picked up this

I was watching the salesman flying one of the cheapo ones in the mall yesterday. I hinted to my wife for one as a Christmas gift, but I don't think she took the bait.

I've seen the videos for the AR Drone...looks amazing. I'm holding off the desire to get one because they're still so new but it looks like they made some vast improvements to the 2.0 model. I'm looking forward to hearing you're thoughts about them. They look really cool!

Knew a fella once who taught people how to fly. When I ask him about it he said "No I teach you how not to crash!" Made good sense to me.

I spent over 10 years competing heavily in pattern (97-2008) Always in the top 10 in the tri-state & surrounding area..I also have quite few trophys..I've pretty much always been a scratch builder very rarely buying kits or arf's...Most of my pattern planes are my own design or modified versions of others..Lately I've been flying a bunch of scratch built foamys.. my t-rex 450..heavily modded & a hdx 450..
Here's a few pics of my 2 meter pattern planes then my foamys...The last shot is the current foamy I'm working on..Called the tadpole designed by a good pattern friend of mine..3d pattern design

Don,
I've been pretty darn impressed with my ar drone..as a entry point quad copter..for the money you can't beat it..I got mine on sale at brookstone for under 3...Takes a bit to get used to since I fly r/c I had to use the left hand option for the joy pad..(thats the same way I fly rc as do most others collective pitch & tail rotor (yaw) on the left)...Buy one you won't be disappointed..You can buy aftermarket batteries 3s 1300mah from hobbyking for like 11.00 bucks each..then make or buy the required adapter plug...
