Default First flight with Blade 120 SR

Hi all,
today I flown for the my very first time with an helicopter.
I was able to take off but not to hover.
I think it is normal for a very beginner.
Anyway I realized that the heli after it took off it started to go around in circles wider and wider.
Is there any setting I can tune to avoid this behavior?
Moreover, despite I can bind easily the heli with the DX6i, when I switch off the 120SR I lost the bind and I have to re-bind it again.
Do you have any suggestion?

Thank You

Regards

M.

In my experience, turning off either the rx or tx will require you to rebind when turned back on. That is necessary to allow flexible rx-tx pairing, i.e. any compatible rx-tx pair can be bound together for a flight.

Hi,
I own a 120 SR. I'm still not in love with it. I had the same problem as you. It's called TBE, or toilet bowl effect. Use common household oil like 3-in-1 to loosen up the metal parts. I also widened the the bones so they aren't tight on the ball joints. Be careful with that. Don't touch the swash-plate push-rods. They fit perfectly.Trim as best you can. I hear it flies much better with a decent radio. The included Tx is a piece of crap. I still use it while I wait for a module to bind it to my Taranis Tx. The TBE isn't as prominent now. Actually it's almost gone. I know oiling it sounds silly, but try it. It really helps. I also swapped out the stock motor for an Extreme RC one, along with a metal head, and a carbon fiber flybar. Probably overkill, but It's personal now. Get yourself a WLToys V911 and fly the crap out of it! It will teach you a lot about flying helis. Oh, they bounce very well.

Good Luck

Steve

I've flown the V911 and the V912 almost exclusively. I own a Wasp X3V (It's collective pitch). Today I flew the Wasp for the second time, instead of just hovering it. First flight I crashed it into a wall. Minor damage. Flew figure eights and circuits. The 911 and 912 prepared me for that.I haven't used a simulator up to this point for the helicopters. Mind you, I have Fixed wing experience, and can fly some 3D with same. A Lot of sim time with planes.

Get a Heli sim and the V911, and you're golden.

Steve
