Hi Guys,

I am learning and wondered if the Caliber 5 is a good heli to learn on or am I better off with the Caliber 30?

Cheers

Lee

Go for it!!!
You will want a 50 size before long anyway. Why not start out with one, wish I had. Train on the sim first, or get a hula hoop from walmart and strap it to the landing gear for safety.

I totally agree. Keep the glass blade though for now, instead use wood blades until you are confident flying all of the basic manuevers.

You will easily outgrow the 30. A 50 class Heli I believe is the best class for training purposes in my opinion.

I agree with the recommendation about using woodies for learning. Not so much for the cost, as for that I feel the wide-cord blades that are included are a bit too agressive on the collective for a rookie.

Apart from that, excellent choice for your first heli.

It's just a matter of opnion, IMHO, I think choosing the right heli should be based on whats bets supported by the LHS and what do, must heli clubs nearby fly for trainers.

Where I am, the cal30 is the obvious choice, but everthing else came from RR and the flight sim, now trying to perfect my straight and level flying.

One of the things that I find hard to deal with on the cal30, is the size of it, if it was just a little bigger, it would make my life easier to work out the directions well enough, that's possibly the reason why I would aid for a 50 class heli, I even have one still in it's box the evo 50 waiting to be built, but since there are no parts for it over here, I'll wait till am worthy enough.

Zero bubble....
