Full Description

Beginning with the pre-flight checks necessary to make sure the model is ready to fly, then fitting a simple training aid that will protect the model from damage during its first training flights, it’s soon time to take to the air for your first time as an RC helicopter pilot.Dave’s simple step-by-step approach is a safe, effective and rewarding way to learn how to fly RC helicopters, from those first tentative hops to learn the effects of the controls, to sustained on-thespot hovering. As confidence and experience grow you’ll learn how to move and rotate the helicopter, and how you need to get used to viewing the model from different perspectives. There’s a particularly useful sequence during which you can see Dave’s control inputs on the transmitter and the effect they have on the model. Finally, after showing how to adjust the engine fuel mixture to give optimum performance, Dave runs through the essential maintenance checks needed to keep your model flying reliably.Following on from HeliTeach – An Introduction to RC Helicopters, where Dave assembled and testflew a glow engine powered RC model helicopter, this DVD guides you safely and confidently on your way to the next programme in the series, where we remove the training aid and go Beyond the Hover. Running Time: 65 mins.
