I have one, it is quirky, and requires a lot of attention, just don't over correct, it will get out of hand real fast.
I have a blade CX for indoors not even a close comparison.
My wife got me the Walkera 4#3 as a gift, the first few times, it was all over the place, just have to learn not to over correct, and time it just right, it's mostly timing.
It's great to hone your skills, but expect to crash a lot when you start out. As you improve the better you will become, and yes it does fly like the video.
P.S metal swash plate, helps improve stability.
Also get additional battery or two.



Finally learned to fly inverted, Helps if you stand on your head

The 4#3B is NOT like a mCX. Yes, they are both about the same size, but that is where the comparison stops.

The mCX is far more crash resistent. It also pretty much flys itself and can hover hands free for quite a long time.

The 4#3B is quite fragile. It requires constant attention and is almost "impossible" to get a perfectly still hover.

As the mCX is so easy to fly, you can get bored with it rather quickly, where as the 4#3B is much more a challenge.

The newer 4#3 2.4G and 4#3B 2.4G are both great, i have both of them, they fly well and pretty durable.

i agree with everyone here....However im really anxious just like every other pilot lookin to get something new...
i have a Raptor E550 so im not new to Flyn...i got a Blade MCX to fool around indoors and wanted to see if this can fly more realistic like a real fix pitch heli without suffering the efforts of trying to fly a Blade CP indoors...

i do hear the 4#3B is the way to go tho...
well if i do decide to buy and i will post a comment....
if there's any other small heli's similar to this in the US that i can buy please provide a link...only place i see this 4#3b is in Hong Kong..i hate waiting 7-21 day delivery..

Had 2 flights the other day when I got my 2.4Ghz 4#3B.
It was a bit squirrely so I still need to get used to it.
I think mine was still a bit stiff seemed to have a bit of lag to it. I can understand the "timing" comment.

Got mine from hobbywing.
$135 including shipping and came in 5 business days to Maryland.
I find HK stuff flies into N.J. then it's like priority mail at that point to me. Depending on where you live, it will fly into some other airport then hit USPS from there.

Where to buy Walkera in the USA

RHAMPTON: There seems to be more and more shops carrying Walkeras in the US every day!

These US shops seem to sell all the spare parts you would ever need:
http://www.HeliDirect.com
http://www.WowHobbies.com
http://www.rotorfever.com
http://www.ka-planes.com

http://www.micro-flight.com (a.k.a. MIA Micro Flight) has some interesting hops such as a carbon frame kit.

Though not in the US, http://www.ChineseJade.com has a very solid reputation and is strictly dedicated to the Walkera and some third party hop-ups.

usually they go hard left when looking at the tail at lift off, this is normal due to the rotational forces of the main rotor.

if you're going hard right, especially from hover and you have to give constant hard left stick then you need to trim the heli out.

hehehe, just noticed you're from bakersfield, i was raised in delano, in southern CA now

yeah, i've heard it is harder than other heli's but the up side is, they say once you master this heli you'll be able to fly anything else.

i won't ever move up to a larger heli, too much of a time hog, i'm staying in this line

have three of them, well actually four at the moment, but will sell one

Need experience

I just got the 4#3 also. It is a great helicopter but it is definitely for those with experience. I have been flying helicopters for a while. The heli comes with very minimal instructions. Mine flew out of the box but in order to get a good hover I had to adjust the linkages.
The helicopter can be overcontrolled super easy. I almost slammed into the wall a couple of times by overreacting. But once you get your fingers calmed down you can do piros and stuff in your bedroom.
I have the heli balanced and adjusted now so that it hovers well. I can take my hands off the controls for a few seconds. I also noticed that the tail loses authority as the battery power level drops.
All in all, I would say if you have at least some experience in flying helis I would get one.

Hello gaanel

You can make it less sensitive.
On the swash, there are two small rods that connect to the fly bar.
If you look carefully at the swash where the vertical steel bars connect to, one set is longer than the other by about 1/32"

Carefully pull the bars out of the swash, rotate the Swash 90 degrees and install, into the short legs on the swash.
This will help.

To check. rotate the shaft, look at the swash bar (legs on top of the swash), as it gets close to one of the ball joints, you can see a small gap, check this gap.
Use the shorter arms, on top of the swash.

Good luck

Thx for the swash info.
I might try that.

Mine is "wishy washy" like I don't have enough headspeed.
It kinda fishtails alot.

Has anyone put heavier flybar weights on theirs?
