Default advise on a new elec heli

Hi guys
I’m in the market for a new electric RC helicopter… I have a lot of sim hours but no actual time with a real heli… ive been looking at the falcon looks like a good buy but I have a 5 channel hitec now and don’t need another new radio… anyone here know where I could get a heli that I could use my 4 channel radio or should I buy new one…thanks for any advise

Pete

Most 4CH helis these days are going to be fixed pitch RTF that come with their own radio. There may be a FP kit out there that doesn't have it's own radio but I don't know of any off hand. With a "real" heli with collective pitch and a good gyro you're going to want at least 6 channels.

you can get the fixed pitch heli from LMH OR some times known as LITE HELICOPTERS .they have glow types to electric and have a few models to choose from.. you can use any 4 ch rx and transmitter/sender with them but i dont think you could use standard size servos so you need slightly smaller servos .

they fly ok with fix pitch but i would recomend a colective pitch any day over fixed pitch.
