Default F3C For Dummies Heli Pilot Article

Hello Everyone

I wrote this article with the intention of giving beginners an understanding of what Precision Flying was all about but also what things you can do from a tuning perspective to help you do better.

RC Heli Pilot was kind enough to let me post it around in hopes of getting more people involved. If you find the article helpful be sure to drop RC Heli Pilot a note and a thank you for letting me post it, editor@helipilotonline.com

Thanks
Mike Unger

Reading between the lines, practicing for a contest in anything smaller than a 700 is a lost cause?

Am I reading this correctly?

Regards,
Roger

I wouldn't say lost cause.

700 sized machines would certainly have an advantage because bigger birds tend to be easier to fly smooth. But there are several very good flying 550 sized birds that could get the job done especially at a local level for learning.

Synergy E5 comes to mind............

The Red one looks like the older DuBro tray.
