Beginner RC Heli Built Tough For You To Crash!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Before you decide to launch into the exciting hobby of flying remote controlled helicopters there are a couple things you need to consider. Ignoring these issues could cause beginner rc heli pilots to get frustrated and give up before giving themselves a chance to really enjoy a fun hobby.

First Issue Is Cost!

Most newbie pilots get started with grand visions of doing all types of complicated aerobatic tricks with the hottest looking helicopter they can afford. Before you get to that skill level you must master your craft and you shouldn't spend a small fortune getting there. Start out with a small budget and grow your hobby as you develop your skills.

Second Issue Is Quality!

Find a quality well built helicopter that will stand up to the abuse while rookie pilots learn their craft. While mastering your skills you will have your fair share of crashes, hard landings and blade strikes. Beginner rc heli pilots need to have confidence in their machine knowing most of their time will be spent in the air instead of making major repairs.

Solution:

Solving these 2 problems is the 3 channel Black Chivalay helicopter kit. Sturdy and well built the Black Chivalay has developed a reputation as being a perfect beginner rc heli. Known to withstand crashes with minimal damage and keep on flying like new. The built in gyroscope and fly bar do a great job of helping the pilot gain confidence with steady and stable flight, making it easy to learn the important flying art of hovering.

Falling somewhere between large and small sized helicopters, this entire kit can be purchased online for around $60.00 (US). This makes the Black Chivalay helicopter kit appealing for most beginner RC heli pilots with concerns of having to invest a large sum of money to learn a new hobby. Savvy shoppers can save money by keeping a watchful eye out for coupon offers that offer free shipping or a percentage off the total purchase price.

Nothings Perfect:

Manufacturers or retailers will say the Black Chivalay helicopter can be flown indoors and outdoors. Unless you have a large indoor area to fly, because of the size 19.6" long (500mm) x 9" high (230mm) its not recommended for indoor flight.

Joysticks on the controller could have a little better response. Once you get the feel of how the helicopter operates in relationship to the movement of the joysticks you should be just fine.

The helicopter doesn't fly well in wind. Fly's best in calm conditions.

There are several different types and brands of awesome kits to choose from but you can very easily get in over your head by purchasing a kit you're not ready for. Getting started with a reliable inexpensive beginner rc heli kit is key to learning the basics of flying helicopters. Keep it simple in the beginning and before long you will be doing aerobatic tricks like a pro!
