The King Has Arrived !!
Hi guys,well the HBK2 arrived today and i can tell you I'm officially hooked on the hobby!!!Took one look at it and fell in love I bought the RTF kit 72 mhz mode 2. Good, bad? Anyway being new to this type of helis i thought it would be the best way for me to get started without spending mega bucks to start with. I'll appreciate all the info you guys can give a newbee like me First question i have is training gear.Have any of you guys made any of your own? What would be the best to buy for the HBK2??

you dont need specs for TG its what you feel comfortable with. that said there are extremes too big will make the king wobbly and hard to fly to small will obviously not help anything. Personally I never used a TG but I have set a couple up for people with them 2 actually a lama and a blade CP pro. and about 3/4 of the rotorspan works well.No Really I am the club President!!!

The only thing you REALLY need is a Brushless motor and ESC. I flew the King for months with everything stock, including the gyro (except motor and ESC) I also used the stock radio for months as well.

Do you think i should "give er a go" without the gear? On another thread i mentioned i had been flying the co-axels for awhile, and have gotten fairly good with them. What should i expect??

does it bother you to rebuild on your first attempt? No really this isnt a smart@$$ question its a reality. Experiencing the torque and tailspin and tilt of a CP heli will be a scare so get some confidence with takeoffs and hovering then think about ditching it. I speak from experience on this one?No Really I am the club President!!!

Expect it to tilt,where as the coaxil does not.I would use the TG and keep it low untill you get used to it

As Doug said, going from your co-axial to the CP will really open your eyes. May I suggest spending another $100 and buying the RTF Honey Bee FP heli? After learning to fly the HBFP, you will be ready to move up to the King. This is the route I took. No, it's not the only route, but the HBFP is a cheap way to learn to fly helis and you will spend more time on the sticks and less time on the repair bench. Just a suggestion. No matter what you decide, there is a wealth of information in this thread and the Esky pilots in this thread are a great bunch of guys.

Well, yes, if you want to spend another $160, Phoenix RC is a fantastic sim. To be honest, Phoenix RC was certainly well worth the money for me. Of course, there are other good sims out there, as well.
