Honeybee King
hi, i have recently started looking at a variety of different heli's online and in different shops as my firt heli. It seems very good value for what you get RTF, but is it worth it and are there any large difficulties in flying them

thanks paul

Hi Paul i would recommend getting a sim first mate, i know you want to get stick bashing and want to fly ASAP, but in the long run it will save you so much money,
It will be heart braking if you by that beeking heli and you crash it and then its going to cost you and it will bug you,
at least with a sim you can learn to fly and if you crash just tab the space bar and away you go again and it did not cost you for that crash,

I promise its an investment that you cant go wrong on

I agree with Nightstalker. But there is another way. The Hobby shop I go to is right around the corner from my work so I went there and practiced alot before buying a heli. That is if you dont have the $$ to get a sim

My first heli is a Honey Bee King and only been flying for a month. I would agree that a sim will save you money and fustration. The King is fairly stable but can get away from you easily and you will crash it! After a month of flying the repairs are easy now, (expensive learning curve) but it almost made me give up. I made the investment on a sim and the skill level and confidence made me able to hover the real thing around like I've been doing this for years. It saved me lots of money on parts!!

This heli if fun to fly but requires a small degree mechanical ability to make repairs when the ineveitable happens. I suppose that's true of any heli. Get a sim to practice on....fly your heli then practice more on the sim.....practice makes perfect!
