I fired up my new collective-pitch heli today for the first time. Nothing spectacular, but it was still exciting. I just spooled it up enough to let the tail rotor move it around and started to get a feel for it. It started to pitch forward a few times and wanted to roll over, but each time I dropped collective and set it down quick.
This is entirely different from the little Syma coaxial birds. I had no idea just how different, though. Lots of baby steps over the next few weeks!
Baby steps is right, I went from a Blade CX 1 and a 2 to a CP PRO only to buy a lot of spare parts and lots of crashes. Every time I thought i could fly it and got cocky another 100 in parts. So now its the S107 and the S032 and a pair of Venoms and enjoyable almost crash free no trips to Local Hobby shop flying.As soon as im sure of ability will step inta a Blade 400 I have still boxed unopened along with some sim software to practice with first.
The concept of flying the Syma first leads you to single rotor helis 4 channel and higher-The learning curve is massive.I have found certain helis and planes I enjoy flying and then raced off to buy bigger and better helis and planes to only crash them and lose some confidence,then I go back to the ones I can control and start the confidence all over again.Then I go back to the harder heli to fly,maybe only a few minutes without crashing-I walk from the field happy and confident for my next flight.
My view is you just can not learn new things flying if confidence gets bashed- go back start again,you will find confidence and no fear helps a lot.Just some days flying just flows from the brain to the hands,if you are feeling uncomfortable in anyway, stop and fly another day-only some of my mad advice
This thing is maddening. I found that the swash plate is not level, so I bought a leveling tool. I haven't corrected it yet, though. In the meantime, I've been using a simulator. I crash a lot!
The little s107 has become my refuge. When I think I should just bag the whole helicopter thing, I break out the Symas and fly them. So easy, and I've become much better with them as a result of struggling with the CP heli.
They are the best after all
