Wear gloves while building or painting.

when binding a receiver to your radio don't place the radio right beside the receiver.
I spent quite a bit of time messing with different receivers until I finally backed up and it worked.

Voice activated cameras are very useful when taking photos or filming your helicopter while in remote locations or flying solo.

Happy 4th of July 🇺🇸

The sooner you begin flying a particular model helicopter, the easier it is to transition to a larger scale which generally will have more stable and favorable flight characteristics due to Reynolds number as well as being easier to maintain visual orientation at greater distances.

Default Biggest lessons learned flying rc helis...

1. Perseverance. Practice makes perfect.
2. Build light. It feels like a brick? It may fly like one too.
3. Don't believe everything the "hobby establishment" tries to sell you.. experiment and discover the laws of model aviation.
4. Make it fun. Doesn't feel like fun? Take a break.

"Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to and even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect."

Every model has unique challenges, whether it be in design, building, flying or maintenance. The more models you have experience with, the less of a challenge the next one may be.

Welcome difficulty, the hard way now is the easy way later.

Think big, but strive to perfect the small things.

Remember where you started. The map of the past is a path toward the future.

Repetition...until you're happy.

Loyalty lasts longer and pays off later.

Don`t ever start a nitro without checking throttle servo position!
And if you don`t check keep tight grip on your heli

I survived only a burning clutch on that hot start
