    What First Heli



    A friend gave me one of those $18 electirc helicopters after he couldn't fly it. It was my first heli, and after a while Iwas able to fly it. However, the flights are very, veryshort and most of the time is spent trimming it out - and it never stays in trim. It can not hover for longer than 1-2 seconds without rotating.

    Anyway, Isort of like flying it around indoors, and was wondering what model would be an inexpensive electric heli that stays in trim and has relaible controls? Nothing fancy or expensive, I just want to chase the wife and pets around.

    Or one of the the Syma S107 series coax heli's.  Got one for Christmas and now I have the Heli bug.  They are durable as all get out, inexpensive and easy to fly.

    RE: What First Heli

    go buy yourself a blade scout cx....hobby shops sell them for 49.99..they are rock solid stable 3 channel, so it's easy to fly, zips around nicely, heading hold gyro, good flight times and almost bullet proof....if you decide to get more serious get a blade msr then learn to fly collective after that if you get addicted to r/c helis...thats your best bets for success and not getting frustrated to the point of quitting the hobby...if you think your serious about it I'd get a dx6i radio when you get an msr so you get used to a real radio...my fiance flys a scout cx and now i have an msr i paid 35 bucks for used and used my dx6i for it so she can move up to that...hope that helps
    ...If it flys, even poorly. I'll give it a go...
