Good forum that one
I got a blade 180cfx for my birthday the other day. Its a really nice built heli and wow!! it really wants to go as well
Any idea how long a waiting period it has ?
Trying to sell my E-SKy Honeybee 2 to move to a quad in the hope that I'll use it more often.
A friend bought me this Blade off a RC site, was crashed on its second flight, owner bought the replacement parts but then lost interest, my mate put it all back together, I'm hoping to take it for its first flight this week Flown planes and a micro helicopter but this is going to be a steep learning curve.

Guess everyone is into the drones nowadays.
I got my transmitter back from my dads he gave me as I got a simulator dongle which we tested there and it works.
What's a good simulator to run?
Also what tips and stuff should I learn for good flying practices.
I have a actual 350 Heli I mentioned ages ago somewhere in here, we kept looking at it then put it aside but I want to bring it out again.
I can use the simulators on drones also.
But overall want to one day be able to fly the 350 heli.
Assuming you are asking as you haven't flown the 350 yet?.. I've found that flying a drone sim with the drone set to 3D mode to be effectively the same as a half decent heli sim and is great for beginners to figure out how to fly helis before they get onto the real thing. The only real difference is the collective pitch / throttle setup, but that is something that can easily be learned on the real thing. The main thing to worry about is getting used to non-level assisted flight modes (acro / rate on a drone) which I assume is the only available mode on your 350. I mention the drone sims because there isn't really any modern heli sims with graphics as nice as their drone counterparts. "FPV Air Tracks" would be my favourite.
edit: i've only flown a few helis fyi... so take with grain of salt
Sorry for the delay haven't been on my pc and doing other things .
No haven't flown the 350 yet, as mentioned its been tested numerous times and can fly it probably needs the fine tuning blade adjustments etc but that's as far as I got with it.
The 350 was basically a frame kit my dad got and he put his own parts in esky gyro etc.
I did have a Nine Eagles Free Spirit here, ran that on beginner mode the pro mode was always a bit much though it needs some replacement parts tail fin etc you cant get anymore or are too expensive for the cost.
I do have my controller setup and can use some software when I have motivation.
I'd recommend you get a micro 3D (collective pitch) helicopter to practice with, I used a Blade MCPXv2 - it's less clinical than using a simulator which won't train you how to control the helo from tail wash/blow out under heavy input. Best to start with a helicopter that will bounce and fold under crash landing, than one that will shatter into a million pieces because you tried to take off on a grass field and dug in.
Yea was also thinking that also, but with finances I can't exactly afford anything at the moment, but I'll keep it in mind.
Yeah I know what you're saying, but it will be more economical in the long run than smashing your expensive larger helo into the ground and having the heartache of replacing gears, booms, shafts, burnt out motors, a dead ESC, fizzed battery etc.. If you crash a 250+ sized RC helicopter you can expect to do a full disassembly rebuild to repair it. Smaller RTR helicopters are much more accessible.
