Default Walkera 5#10

I just got my 5#10 yesterday and it is an awesome machine. I also just signed up for this forum and hope to grow with it. NO MORE NITRO CARS! I love this heli especially inside where it is warm!

To add a picture you first must hit the REPLY button to a specific post. At the bottom under the text block theres a CLICK HERE TO UPLOAD IMAGES AND FILES to click on. THen you can upload your picture. If you want to show a YOU TUBE video then copy and paste the you tube link into the text block. Man, its cold here this morning in Northern California but thinking about going out to fly anyway cause the wind is calm this morning. Good luck flying heli's. Its very addictive. I have 2 Falcon 3Ds equipped with CPD4 Copilots. You can see my videos if you go to YOU TUBE and search for FALCON 3D and CPD4.

thank you so much ralph! I guess I did it? I'm not sure but it said the pic was uploaded successfully now I wonder where it is ? maybe it's included in the message lol
It's pretty chilly here in ny too.. but i dont mind it. It definitely makes it feel like christmas lol.
Hopefully i won't crash this little guy too soon, i can't find parts for it anywhere...but it did come with an extra set of blades (thank lord!) i'm still a beginner.. just learning how to get this puppy up.
I've seen the falcon's on the web before, seem to be pretty popular. I'm new to all this..
well, thanks for the reply!

I got this last week from a shop in Melbourne Fl, Just a few miles away. Shipping was extremily fast. This thing is AWESOME. Took it out of the box charged the batteries and hovered it without any adjustments, set the TX down and it still flew.
AWESOME

I visited KA-Planes store and picked one of these up. Its nice and comes with many upgrades. Would take $150.00 to upgrade a Esky Lama with all the Extreme parts to equal this.
Mine did come with a broken landing skid which Mike and his staff corrected by sending me a new one. Has anyone else had issues with broken skid's ?

There's nothing in the manual about charging the battery. How long should it take, and what's the LED sequence? Mine's been solid red for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours and the cell has 3.95v. I imagine there's a green and maybe blinking green (or red) involved somewhere.

Thanks. It did finally charge. The time is not unreasonable, I just wanted to make sure I was doing everything right. Not much in the manual.

Here are some pics I took in my office. The flying pics aren't great, but I was flying and taking the pictures at the same time. It's not something I do too often with my other helis.
