New to Helicopter Flight
New to the Heli Scene,

Just picked up a T-Rex 550 with V-Bar.
I have a friend who is an avid heli pilot helping me learn.
I have maybe 500+ hours simulator experience.
I'm an Avid Airplane pilot and just did my first (2) flights yesterday with the 550. It was exciting and nerve racking at the same time. Starting slow with lift, tail in hover and land. I still need to get used to the real thing as the helicopter is still way ahead of me but 2 flights no crashes it a good way to start.

Great Start
Your doing it the right way.. it doesn't get better then having a good pilot to work with and to help with your setup's and just explaining what is happening, or gonna happen!!
CONGRATS on your first two flights...You are stepping into a completely new segment of the hobby, and it sounds as if you have been bitten!!!

Hi Stan,
Bitten for sure, I have been wanting to get into the heli for a couple of years now so I finally sold my 1/3rd scale Spacewalker to pick up my 1st real heli.
Picked up the 550 here on RR and got a decent deal on it. I hope I can progress to what I can do on the sim but best to take it 1 step at a time.

Thanks

Ray

Newbee Helicopter Pilot
So far so good,

Did 5 flights with my 550 on Sunday 1-17

This time, I was able to keep the thing out in front of me with tail in hover, some side, side movement and some off angle tail in hover. Starting to feel more comfortable with it and want to start trying side in hover my next time out.

The 550 is a great heli to learn on for sure. I have one and a 600 and 2 700s 3 srimok 90s and an avant 90. all are great helis but the parts for the 550 are affordable and easy to get.

just take it slow and easy and don't push it. It will get expensive if you push it. I have no patience and it cost me plenty of money!! I should have just taken it easy back then!

It's a nitro bird. I'm going to try the os gt 15HZ gas burner in her. That's the plan anyway. Tried to fly the sim yesterday! OUY! Talk about brown streaks. I ruined three helicopters in two minutes. I couldn't believe how rusty I am. Yikes!

flying
Hey guys. I gotta check in once every couple years or so. Been flying lately getting my thumbs back in shape after a long break but I'm back to having a few brown streaks. I've almost finished my latest scale heli. Finishing the lights now and flying the 600n like I stole it again. Hope everyone is well and still motivated to fly the Foo Foo out of your helis here's the scale which is an md500 with a raptor 30 with a 60 motor stretched tail with custom belt and gearing. Flys well but thinking of putting a 700 electric in her to keep her clean and more realistic in the air. Just not sure I can afford batteries.

fly it like you stole it
