I would suggest a flight simulator, it the best learning tool. A 450 will work and can be toned down. I really like the 500 myself. Be careful though, these machines can and have killed.

Do yourself a favor. Don't buy no name brands. You are almost guaranteed to end up with junk. I know that from experience when I did that one time. Second, buy batteries that are at least 30c. ...

I never fly around in norm. What happens is the first time you go inverted after forgetting to switch it to idle up, it dives into the ground because you gave it full negative and the motor turned...

The yaw was on the right because the controller was 3 channel heli. All of your controls were on the left side and throttle only on the right side. You need to learn how to use cyclic on the right...

You want to use it in normal and idle up modes. If you use different pitch, it will jump or do something bad when you switch. norm should be used to just get the blades up to speed.

As an instructor, one thing I learned is that how you learn it the first time is how you remember it. Trying to learn it over again is more difficult. Did you learn to drive a car with limited...

I use a bit of a different approach. If not governed, normal throttle would be linear. Idle up 1 and 2(if you have enough channels) would be flat curves. For pitch, I would do +-10 for beginners. ...

My advice would be to get rid of the 3GX and buy a AR7200BX. It will save you a lot of headaches and fly much better. Or my favorite is the Ikon. You program it on the computer and walks you...

Not quite true. It depends on where your throttle stick is sitting and will determine your current pitch. As for the tail, it depends on where it is mechanically set up at.

As said, as the heli...

I looked at a pic of it and would just try a trex 450 gear. Can't say for sure, but looks like it would fit. FYI, that is one of the problems of buying an off brand that is sort of like a clone. ...

I think I need a bigger picture and possibly a video. The picture is too small to see what is going on. I still don't quite understand the concept based on the current information.

I agree don't do it unless you want a family feud. The two will not play well together and will fight each other.

If you swapped it directly to the receiver and it stopped, then it isn't the pot. Sounds like you messed with the gain or something in your radio. What gyro are you using?

You will be hard pressed to get a 500 size heli for $400. I suppose if you go ultra cheap, but won't have anything of quality.
