I was disappointed in this video. His help on setting up your helicopter?? Read the manual! Great, thanks.
Then you are treated to 60+ minutes of him hovering. I just didn't see the value.
I bought the RealFlight computer simulation software (there's several on the market) which was much more helpful. Comes with the controller to hook to your computer. It also has training built into it. More money but you get to practice a lot more ....at home. I practice while I have the TV on. Results were almost immediate. Plus you save money on all the rotor blades you didn't break in real flight. One of the RC gurus on the internet suggested putting in 30 to 50 hours on a simulator. Well worth the money to be able to practice the basics of tail in, tail out hovering without having to worry about your rc disappearing into the wild blue yonder or piling into the nearest tree.
Robert Dickehuth tells step-by-step how to hover, setup your heli and basic flight instructions.
Very nice made DVD with clear instructions.
A must if you are going to start with helicopter flying!
I just bought a Eflite Blade 400, and this dvd has helped me a lot. Maybe the most important thing that I have learned: fly a Heli requires a lot of time and practice before you can star to do a circuit. You will require to practice for months, (not kidding), but this video will teach you exactly what to practiced during your learning process.
