First RC Helicopter Hover


So, you are ready for your first RC helicopter hover. Well, let me tell you that you will have some fun, and at the same time be a little nervous.

But if you know what to expect you will feel better when you fly your RC helicopter.

First, an RC helicopter flier should learn how the radio works.

Before you attempt to RC helicopter hover your helicopter it is important to make sure you have set up your radio properly.

I can't stress enough to anybody who wants to learn how to fly an RC helicopter to study the radio in and out. Also, study the radio's instruction manual thoroughly and make sure you understand it even before attempting to fly.

Note: When you are first trying to hover make sure that people are not close around. This could be extremely dangerous to you and to the people around you.

Second, the next thing that you should do is to make sure that the RC helicopter is set up properly for an RC helicopter hover. Make sure you have good training gear that will support the RC helicopter that you will be flying. Some training gears can only support a 30 class RC helicopter.

Third, try to pick a large grassy area. If you fly in an area where there is a lot of dirt or rocks it will be hard on your engine. The dirt and rocks will enter through the carburetor and the engine can't digest dirt and rocks as easy as grass.

These are some of the things you need to know to start your RC helicopter hovering.

If you are having trouble with the basics, try to have an experience RC helicopter pilot supervise you and see if you are on the right track. You can find plenty of RC hobbyists at your local RC helicopter club. Some of these clubs might require you to have some kind of liability insurance just in case something goes wrong.
