Figuring Out Helicopters

RC Helicopters: A Guide Let’s say you have the best RC helicopter and it is your first time to try it to fly. There should always be a pre-flight and post flight checklist you need to follow in order that your RC helicopter flies smoothly and lands safely as well like every other real plane. These are the things that you would want to check every time you fly a helicopter, before you take it up and after you’re done flying. These will guarantee that you don’t have a day of just buying parts and you will have a lot of good enjoyable hours on your helicopter with little things like these. Make sure that before you fly you have to turn the radio on first then you plug in the helicopter which is the most important thing to do. Don’t forget to turn on the helicopters first and then the radios which the little receiver goes into a standby mode and doesn’t link to the radio which everyone thinks they got a bad helicopter. Turning on the remote first is the key here so you won’t have all of those problems. When plugging in the helicopter it has a jar on board which you have to remember. As soon as you plug it in set it down on a flat surface and let it be still for a few seconds and wait for the lights. You got to wait for it to see the lights pop on. When you try to move it around after you have just plugged the gyro on it wouldn’t know what ‘still’ is. Every time you plug it in you have to set it down so it knows what means to be still. If you moved it around it will think that is ‘still’ and it will fly extremely and radical. It’s going to be barely flyable. Flying it with a fully charged battery is a must. If you somehow crashed it on your first flight, here is a side checklist you need to do. First thing is your Y bar on top of the main helicopter blades should be free moving. Hitting it with your fingers it should be bouncing back and forth it only means that it is not binding. This is what keeps your helicopter stable if it can move as freely as possible. It means your helicopter is going to fly very radically if the Y bar is tight, lockdown or binding.
