Learn Secrets of Flying RC Helicopters and Planes

 

I came across a really great web site on Beginners guide to flying RC Helis and RC Planes and was very impressed with the books I bought written by Peter Carpenter.

With out any doubt flying a helicopter is far harder to acquire than flying a plane and very satisfying when achieved.This easy to download Ebook is full of fantastic advice, like knowing how to perform that first aerobatic maneuver,understanding RC systems & how they control the helicopter, essential pre-flight checks you need to know,just a few great articles to name a few Peter talks and explains about-I put a few excerpts below to give you an idea of the book-I have bought both the RC Heli and RC plane book,both were brilliant reading.

Sample page from the Guide

beginners-guide-to-flying-rc-helis-23"But what this hobby has seen in recent years is a complete change in variety and designs of helicopter available; electric power (EP) has become the norm and multi-function helicopters that need no assembly whatsoever and can pretty much be flown straight out the box are being sold in hobby and toy shops alongside model cars and boats - this was an unthinkable idea not that long ago.
And even more recently, as the ongoing electronic revolution continues, we now have easy access to micro-size helicopters that sit comfortably in the palm of your hand and can be flown in a completely controlled manner around your living room..."

 

 

 

 

 

Sample page from the Guide

beginners-guide-to-flying-rc-helis-24"It's important to realize, though, that such fixed pitch helicopters do have a steep learning curve and if you've never had any previous experience, say with flying a coaxial heli, then you're in for a difficult time! Even with coaxial experience under your hat, the flight characteristics and techniques needed to fly an FP heli are completely different and learning to co-ordinate main rotor and tail rotor well can be quite a game to begin with.
Unlike a coaxial RC helicopter, a fixed pitch heli like those named above can't be flown straight out the box with no previous experience, despite what the manufacturers tell you!"

 

 

 

 

 

Sample page from the Guide

"As with collective pitch vs. main rotor speed for altitude control, so it's much better to have tail rotor pitch controlling the yaw rather than a separate motor controlling the speed of the tail rotor.
In exactly the same way a fixed pitch heli is less responsive to climb/descent inputs so a heli with a motor-controlled tail rotor is less responsive to yaw inputs. In addition to that, electric RC helicopter tail motors are notoriously bad for burning out and having a very short life; having to replace the motor on a regular basis is bad enough, but having the motor die in mid-air and seeing your heli spin wildly out of control as you instantly lose all yaw control is sickening!"

 

 

 

As you can see from just a few sample pages how well written this Ebook is and the amount of knowledge Peter Carpenter is giving you.The cost is less than $15 and as you guys know me here as the Syma Freak I review lots of Syma helis and tell you the good and bad points-so here with this Ebook I highly recommend, not because it will massively help you fly a Syma S107G  more the fact you will get bitten by this great hobby and move up in scale to much bigger 4 channel helis and above needing a lot more knowledge and tips to fly the bigger faster birds like the Walkera Helis.

So here are the links to Peters web site and the books available, also a great site just to float the breeze their and read great articles and info on flying rc helis and planes.
