Default Hello all need help deciding on FP Heli

Hello all I am fairly new to RC helis and totally new to this forum so thanks for your help in advance. I am in the market for a outdoor FP heli that can handle very slight wind. I have been looking at the E-Sky Honeybee V2, Walkera UflyS, and the Walkera CB180Z. I would welcome all suggestions about each of these and which would be suited for an intermediate pilot without all the setup of CP helis simply because I just dont know how to setup one. Looking for a RTF package 200.00 or less thanks again.

im also new to this forum....

look for the " hirobo SRB Quark"
i have 2 myself and i love them......they are reletively simple as they come litteraly as an Ready-to-fly, i mean its put radio batteries in and put the heli batts. on charge... great heli will do okay with winds up to about 5 or 6 mph but that is almost pushing it.....it is 72megs so dont fly at a field or make sure its your channel....

however the main and tail blades being foam make sure you buy like 3 or 4 boxes of tail  blades and 1 or 2 boxes or mains.....be very carefull about where you take off and land because grass and other tall grasses will probably explode the tail blade as it is very, very thin.

I do not however rember what the price was as i got them a while ago.

overall i give this heli a 8.5 out of 10

I have a Honey bee V2, and I had a couple of FP Walkeras. Walkera is a better heli - better built and easy to find parts. Also, look into e-flight (Blade msr, sr120, etc). I started the same way, but quickly learned that CP set up is easy to learn and a more enjoyable to fly. You are starting out the right way though. Go with Fixed pitch to get down the basics of how to fly, then you will eventually want to try collective. Once you go CP, FP is for indoors in the winter!

Default RE: Hello all need help deciding on FP Heli

thanks guys im also eyeing the Honey Bee king 3 I have a simulatorand have been practicing but im concerned about my knowledge as to how to setup CP helis. I really havent found anything online as to how to use the pitch gauge or any of the other setup and there is no hobby shops or heli pilots within  a very  good distance. I would love to fly outside i currently fly my T-Rex 100 and my Blade Cx2 and a nine eagles bravo SX which by the way I bought the nine eagles bravo SX for 60 bucks rtf and its a super fun FP heli. I would love to find a good tutorial on how to setup a CP heli but all I find is just how tos not any beginners guide to steting up a CP guide thanks for the replys fellas
