    Thanks for the video. Been flying a Blade 120SR for a while and recently picked up a Trex450. Time to move up!

  • Jose Mendez:

  • KJ6EPL:

    BTW the V911 uses the old version of the Flysky protocol, (AFHDS, not AFHDS2A), and will bind to any Flysky transmitter without any mods. If you have DeviationTX installed on that Walkera transmitter with the proper module installed in it, you can use that too.

    The V911 kicks! I love mine.

    4 channel coaxial helicopters do have the use of aileron side to side banking you were talking 3 channel

    Not too many people can teach. This is why the world isn't over run with teachers. It is a select few that have the skills to explain at a beginner, intermediate, or high level when they are further than that. You my friend are an excellent teacher! I don't even have an RC, and while I love them, I was just captivated by your video and your teaching ability. I hope for others sake you continue to make learning videos like this. You will help very many, that I am sure! PS: Get a Steady camera Operator, and you will surly knock it out of the park! Good Luck…

  • Todd Speck:

    Excellent explanation's

  • The Reaper:

    I like how you relate it to a ceiling fan. That's exactly how I think of it except when you flip the switch the motor stays same and the blade pitch changes vs you have a fan running in high and flip switch your going to blow something up or strip something apart cause it has to slow down and respool going the other way. They need to make ceiling fans work like a heli

  • Jess Neal:

  • Petra Whalley:

  • Reed Durant:

    How do you switch from power to Collective

  • Maceyee:

    thanks for noting an inexpensive good beginner model or two

  • Fred Houseal:

    That statement you made about coaxial helicopter not having left and right pitch is false, you should be saying it's a 3 channel coaxial , there are many 4channel coaxial helicopters out there like the blade cx2

  • tony welch:
