RC Helicopters – Getting Started (Part 2)

When can I fly without the training sticks?

RC Heli training sticks

The general qualification is if on the first tank/battery of the day you can come to a stable hover and sit the heli down straight without letting it slide one way or the other. One thing you will notice is that you use the sticks for orientation more then you would think you do. Also you will have to concentrate more on the landings. With the sticks you can sit it down even if the heli is still moving, but without the skids you can’t have any side to side movement. Take them off if you feel comfortable enough to try it, otherwise don’t worry about it, no one will punish you for leaving them on! πŸ™‚
