1--Read the instruction booklet that comes with your RC helicopter. Make sure you have at least a basic working understanding of the constituent parts and mechanisms that drive your RC helicopter. This will only help make learning to fly one easier
2--Make sure that there are no loose screws on your RC helicopter before you try to fly it. Loose screws can result in important parts flying off as you attempt to make the helicopter airborne, and can lead to significant damage to your RC helicopter.
3--Have your RC helicopter unit checked over by someone with advanced expertise before you fly it. He or she will be able to spot any assembly flaws that might prevent proper flight or cause damage to your helicopter.
4--Familiarize yourself with the different functions of the control panel before you attempt to fly. Most RC helicopters' control units have the same controls that are found in real helicopters, and can be quite complex in nature. The instruction manual included with your unit will walk you through the details.
5--Master the skill of hovering before you attempt any other moves with your RC helicopter. This skill alone can take many attempts to master, and it is the most basic and necessary function you will need control of as you develop in skill.
6--Move on to more advanced techniques, such as turns and dips, when you are comfortable with your ability to hover. Expect that you will crash your RC helicopter frequently as you learn to fly it. It is best to learn to fly it over a grassy area that can absorb the shock of a crash and may minimize and prevent damage to your helicopter.
7--Practice, practice, practice. Eventually, the skills you need to successfully fly an RC helicopter will become a matter of course.
What is channel mean?
- 2-channel helicopter: up and down ,left and right.
- 3 channel helicopter: up and down (main rotor speed), turn left and right,forwaird and backward (tail rotor to change the direction of rotation)
- 4-channel helicopter: up and down , forwaird and backward , turn left and right, left and right shift (aileron servo)
- 6-channel helicopter: from top to bottom (electronic speed controller), left turn (gyro),forward and backward the (elevator machine), pan left and right (aileron servo), flying and upside down (pitch servo)
