    Well, your skill level on helis period, and your budget will help. I like my Blade mQX. If you are a heli newbie, you may not want toi start with a quad. Check out http://www.rchelicopterfun.com. ...

    Just for grins, have you tried a NAME brand battery and/or charger. The local hobby shop may even let you test one.

    I would think only if you need to control the accesssory during flight, like turning lights on and off, or repelling a guy out the copter, that sort of thing. What kind of heli and accessory(s) are...

    I don't think any micro is going to handle breezes as well as one would like. I have a Blade mCX2, mQX and mCPX2, and they all get tossed around by breezes. Doesn't take much. I know it is the...

    You can try HeliSimRC for now. It is free, but frankly I would look into Phoenix at some point. Also, if you are new to this, check out http://www.rchelicopterfun.com. Lots of good info there.

    Since this pretty much applies to routine maintenance, anyone have maintenance schedules for micros? I love checklists. :)
    I have an mCX2, mQX and a new mCPx2.
    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome aboard. New to this hobby myself. Currently flying an mCX2 in the house :), and learning on an mQX outdoors.

    Also, don't kid yourself. You don't just jump in and start flying most hobby grade helis. The problems you are having sound very typical of a newbie that doesn't know the basics yet. Even co-axes,...

    +1

    I use the Phownix sim and love it. However, although it connects to almost every Spektrum, out of the box, I think you need a separate adapter for the DX7s. Double check that one.

    +1 on that

    At first, she is standing around in 20-50 mph winds, perhaps. But when flying, NO WAY, unless you have a species of SUPER trees with metal leaves and frawns that I've never heard of.

    Does the motor actually rev up and own on its own? Wind, even small breezes, will cause a heli to yo-yo (I like that term BTW), especially smaller ones. Gusty winds are especially problematic. ...

    I've been looking into clubs and AMA myself, but the cost is a bit unjustified, right now, as all I have is a Blade mCX2 and mQX. Now, if and when I go to bigger helis, I'll need these AMA or club...

    If you are on a budget, the Dx6i is a good value, and seems will last for quite a while, especially for newbies. I would ask why a Dx7 or Dx8 vs. a Dx6i. Details, not just they are better and worth...

    Hydrofoams

    I don't even know where to post this, so I'll start here.

    Just watched a video on hydrofoams or hydrogliders. Looked pretty cool, but can't seem to find anything current about them. Any threads...

    mQX vs mCPX

    I started with an mCX2, then got an mQX. I had read that an mQX could handle breeze better, so got one for outdoors. I was also under the impression that an mQX is a beginner heli, but since have...

    Sounds like it is not bound to me. Ghost, if it is bound, don't you turn on the TX first, or is this heli different?

    Great info. Thanks

    I'm guessing on an FP heli, Pitch Curve doesn't mean anything. Everything is based on Throttle Curve. If so, why do folks have you setting Pitch Curves for an FP? Always...
