Flown rc cp heli's for quite sometime now. The reason i chose helimax was because of the good youtube reviews and stellar price. You can't rebuild this thing for twice the cost of this deal right now. OK, so i took it out of the box. read through the manual somewhat and plugged it all up. immediatly when trying to fly it i realized that it was wanting to dump itself to the right so i said "ok, maybe it just wasn't calibrated from the factory. np" I'm pretty good at that stuff and wanted to customize the pitch throttle exp etc anyway. well didn't seem to matter how much trim i gave it or if i tilted the swash to the left or made it straight it still wanted to pull to the right. after rummaging through the web for quite a while i found a post where they guy was having the same issue and it was determined the TAGS system was failing. not only that but i also noticed that with the throttle all the way at zero it would spin the blade slowly unless i pressed harder than i needed to to make it stop. at this point i contacted helimax and told them my issues. they were great and sent me a ups label the same day and it was about a 3 day turn around and i had a new heli and have flown it hundreds of times since then with no issues other than my own competence. I decided to purchase a second one (tx-r version which will bind to the rtf model's transmitter) because i was interested in more batteries which were looking at about 10 dollars a piece for and honestly its a steal to just buy the second heli even just to part out eventually. My plan is to alternate flying them per battery to disperse the wear and tear between the two and hopefully add just a little more life to these itty bitty motors. When i contacted helimax i told them of my disappointment with not only one issue with my first ever helimax but two.Read more ›

If you haven't perfected and bored yourself flying a V911, stop now and go buy one. Thrash it about and learn it backwards and forwards. Buy two or three...you'll need them. Then come back. :-)

This unit flies with similar moderate power of an entry level micro, but it has flybarless maneuverability, and collective pitch capability. The FBL design makes it MUCH more fun to fly that a flybar design. It responds faster, holds attitude better, and canopy strikes are a thing of the past. I'd like to say it's even easier to fly, but I'm sure the twitchier response makes it harder to fly until you train yourself. Compared to a flybar 450, I actually find the much faster response to be a benefit...no control lag to factor in. It also handles wind surprisingly well.

Flying CP (stunt mode, idle up, etc) allows you to fly inverted and do more tricks. This opens up a new level of training and proficiency.

The TX610 controller is a good match. I recommend getting it in RTF form, as the programming is simpler than using a TTX650 or other general purpose transmitter. and the travel suitcase is a useful feature. The only downside is the TX610 doesn't have wireless training capability (like other SLT radios), but you wouldn't use it for flying this guy much, anyways.

I recommend modifying the pitch curve to remove negative pitch in normal mode (values below 50). It causes negative thrust when you cut power...not very useful in normal mode.

Downsides? It's more fragile than the V911. The tail boom splits apart (put super glue on it), and the landing skid is surprisingly brittle in places. Some legs snapped off, others won't break even if you try to bend them off.

If you have a little more experience, you may want to skip this model and get the SS or SSL brushless models (available May 2013). The power of the brushed motor is a bit weak, and will likely wear out quickly.

Collective pitch helicopters have a tremendous amount of energy and their speed and manoeuvrability rival that of any fixed pitch model. The problem for the beginner is focusing all that energy. This heli is a good place to start.
First, it flies quite well right out of the box. I just charged the batteries and, when I noticed that our local park was empty of people, was soon zipping through its air space doing pyros, circuits, and basic hovers. I am still somewhat of a beginner, but have flown other models with similar capabilities. I began to wish that I had started my jump into cp helis with this model. This little guy does a lot of things well, and in two important categories it is outstanding.
Its durability is impressive. Compared with another brand similar in size, I have had much less damage after the smack and crash we all experience. The parts are strong, and the synergy of them makes for a heli I have flown a LOT and, after a few crashes which I stood from a distance certain that I had totaled the thing, walked over to find that I simply needed to snap on a new ball link. I'm still on the first set of main blades.
It's price is a huge plus. The BNF is HALF of what its competitor charges and the initial RTF package as at least a third cheaper. The radio is far more versatile than its competitor and has a solid feel (a real throttle cut switch needs to be a switch, like this one boasts, not some cheesy red button that you are desperately mashing while the heli is writhing in the grass happily turning all of its vast kinetic powers on itself shredding itself to bits). The box easily functions as a case to take it anywhere.
Regrettably, parts are not as ubiquitous as some major brands, so big repairs can be a setback.
