What is the experience of flying various Remote Control Helicopters? Is it hard or easy? Knowing how to fly micro coaxial RC helicopters can be easy but flying a large single rotor collective pitch RC helicopter can be the challenge as many people have said it is hard to fly. People who have flown the micro coaxial RC helicopter and want to proceed to the single rotor collective pitch can be scared because they wonder if they posses the necessary skill. Skill to fly a different type of RC chopper can be learned along the way. What one needs to understand is a little bit about the single rotor collective pitch bird. This RC helis is nitro powered and large in size.
The micro coaxial is what many people get introduced to when getting into the hobby of flying remote control helicopters. They fly very different from a true single rotor collective pitch bird. This is where the problem comes in when people are making a switch between these two birds. One may find that he/she crashes within the first 10 to 20 seconds from start of fly by thinking it is more or less the same what they used to fly on their micro coaxial RC helis. The first hurdle for one to get past in a single rotor collective pitch helicopter is to get the correct settings of the computerized radio when training with it.
The larger the remote control helicopters the easier it becomes to maneuver because of added stability. Blade 450 size or Trex 450 size is one such large single rotor collective pitch model. Easy maneuver can be so in large models if flying in low no wind environs. In terms of cost, the 400/450 size model is generally the best bet. A fine line exists between the added advantage of flying a large bird due to stability and the disadvantage in terms of expense when one crashes the bird and needs repair. It has come out that for most people, the 400/450 size offers the best combination of cost to stability ratio when it comes to learning to fly.
Blade 450 is definitely the least expensive option because it comes with a computerized good radio for quick set up for learning and has inexpensive replacement parts. It would help if one understands how differently a single rotor collective pitch Remote controlled helicopter operates from a micro coaxial one such as the Blade mSR and Blade 120 SR. The micro coaxial RC helis including the Blade mSR/120SR operates like a ball bearing in a bowl. When movement in the bowl is stopped, this heli settles into a nice stable hover in just the same way the ball bearing settles at the bottom of the bowl.
On the hand a single rotor collective pitch helis behaves just like a ball bearing when flipped on the bowl upside down and trying to balance the ball bearing on top curvature of the bowl. Control of single rotor helis is basically a balancing act on a domed bubble of high-pressure. Cycling corrections must be made to keep it on top of air dome.
