    Flying

    In as-delivered trim, the Lightning Bird is an excellent stepping-up point for those experienced with small coaxials. Beginners, please note that gentle throttle is necessary when spooling up a helicopter such as this since the throttle makes it climb. Too much too fast and you’ll have a little black missile zooming toward the ceiling.

    Ah, though you may laugh, dear reader, I can tell you with all honesty that a friend of mine with no prior R/C experience once augered a little coaxial into his ceiling with a full throttle takeoff for its one and only flight.
    I have a “name brand” nano similar to the Lightning Bird, so I had an idea of what to expect. I just didn’t expect it to be this good.

    Not only is the helicopter nice and compact, so too is the transmitter.

    The Lightning Bird lifted off from my living room floor as smoothly and as stable as a far more expensive helicopter. The geared servos make for very smooth control and even in the relatively gentle “Mode 1” setting, this is one fast and responsive little chopper.

    Even with the servo pushrods and swashplate links set for maximum throw, the Lightning Bird never felt as if it were anything but smoothly controllable.
    What impressed me the most was the relative lack of the “pendulum effect” common with fixed-pitch models when transitioning from forward flight back to hover. My other nano requires a lot of fiddling with the transmitter sticks to keep it from swinging back and forth before settling down. Not so the Lightning Bird. It pulled back almost as nicely as a CCPM machine, simply transitioning back to hover with little drama.

    Switching to Mode 2 really woke things up. Pirouettes in Mode 1 are relatively slow and lazy, but the Lightning Bird spins like crazy on Mode 2. Spinning the tail and releasing the stick results in an immediate stop with only the slightest hint of tail bounce. Cyclic is a lot more responsive as well and can be made even more so by relocating the servo pushrods to the outside holes of the servo arms and relocating the swashplate links to the longer ball links of the base of the swashplate.

    I tried it outside in my front yard; not too bad. Problem is, the conditions must be dead calm because even a slight breeze is going to make things difficult for the Lightning Bird. There was only a whisper of a breeze, but I found myself fighting the controls.

    The same problem arose at the Coachella Valley Radio Control Club’s helicopter pad during the video shoot. It simply wouldn’t fly forward against the breeze even on high rates. Since there’s no way to program exponential in the transmitter, switching to Mode 2 resulted in a hyper-sensitive tail…and very little headway.

    Beginners should please note that outdoor performance of this nature is typical of a nano helicopter like the Lightning Bird. In fact, a coaxial of similar size would have been plain unflyable.

    Inside the Box:

    The complete contents of the box/carrying case, including the transmitter, flight batteries, charger, USB cable and spare rotors. The manual is underneath the tray.

    The display box/storage case with its dramatic graphics contains the following goodies:
    * Fully assembled and aligned Lightning Bird helicopter
    * Four-channel 2.4GHz transmitter with illuminated LCD display, battery charger power lead, digital trims and switchable dual rates
    * USB-powered charger and cord
    * Two 200mAh 3.7V lithium polymer batteries
    * Spare main blades and tail rotor
    * Illustrated operation manual
    All that will be needed are:
    * Six AA-cell alkaline batteries for the transmitter

    Everything needed to get flying is laid out and ready to go.

    As attractive and dramatic as the packaging is, there is, at least to my eye, a small glitch.
    The top panel shows the transmitter, not the helicopter.
    No matter. What’s inside is what matters and what’s inside is nice. Dramatic, too.

    Aerobatics/Special Flight Performance

    The Lightning Bird will, of course, do things like backward flight which is quite stable. With a bit of practice, someone transitioning from a coaxial will find themselves performing both tail-in and tail-out funnels. Pirouettes are a blast in both modes, performing them with little or no loss of altitude. My other nano needs some throttle to help keep it airborne during piros.

    It’s small enough to be relatively unaffected by low-altitude ground effects, so hovering an inch or two above the ground or spot landings are a cinch.

    Is This For a Beginner?

    An experienced beginner comfortable with flying a coaxial in any orientation is going to love this little chopper. It…

    well to be frank this thing is cheap feeling. I right away did not feel like I got my $50 worth. During every flight it had the “toilet bowl” effect. (Where the heli faces the same direction but going around in a horizontal circle)
    This effected the flight of the helicopter a lot. After about 5-6 light crashes the pins on the back of the battery attachment started getting loose, making the vibration from flight….disconnect the battery making the heli drop from the air.

    Edit:
    Within hours of the review above being posted Halley R US contacted me via email offering a replacement device that would be in house tested and guaranteed working. This is by far the best customer service I have gotten online.
    If you feel like your heli is not working as advertised, do not hesitate to contact them, they are great. Even though my original score was 2 stars, the service alone gives it two more.

    I will try to give an in depth review for this product. My wife bought it for me 5 weeks ago and I have flown it well over 20 times so I have a good feel for the pros and cons of the product. I will start with the pros.

    1. Worked right out of the box on first attempt.
    2. App has worked flawlessly.
    3. Quite durable. My 3 year old son and I have wrecked and abused this heli countless times and although we have broken parts it was nothing we couldn’t repair for a few bucks here and there.
    4. Easy to fly and control.
    5. Main motors are not loosing power.
    6. Battery still has same fly time as it originally did.
    7. Parts are easy to replace.

    Cons

    1. Had to take a utility knife and shape the charger plugin so it would fit into the heli.
    2. On 3rd flight I wrecked it and a wire pulled out of the tail motor. Cost me $6 for a new tail motor.
    3. You only get about 5-6 min of flight time and then 1 hour to fully charge.
    4. Cannot be flown outside if u have even a wisp of a wind.
    5. Range is only about 20ft before you loose contact and can no longer control it.

    Parts can be bought but you will need to buy parts for a “s032 or a s032g” they are the same chopper as this one for the most part.
    Up to date I have broken the landing gear, main tail shaft, replaced tail motor, broken main blade clasp and lower blade clasp. All parts were easy to replace.
    I have also ordered a longer life battery that should arrive soon. I will try to update how that turned out.

    Update…..
    The battery I ordered did not fit. It is now my understanding that a battery upgrade is unavailable for an s032 although a replacement battery is readily available.
    The lil bird now has over 30 flights and is still flying as well as it did new. I recommend buying parts from feala. com if you don’t mind waiting 2-3 weeks for ur parts to arrive from overseas. Don’t forget u are ordering parts for an s032.

    I bought it for my adult son for Christmas and he loved it.
    Sent me a video of it as he played with it from his living room,
    using his iphone as a controller.
    It was fun to see the little boy he used to be.
