Just a little cheapy Walkera 4#3B, this is roughly my 6th flight with this little guy. I have flown mostly sim time. You will notice my a/c come's on and causes it to get blown around a little but I like the challenge! Enjoy!

Keep it up and you'll be strumming the guitars with it in no time with it! Good luck.

Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?

The only micro other then this has been all dual rotor's and obviously those were stable. I am told by my veteran buddies that the larger the scale the more stable. So if you can fly a micro well, larger stuff is easier. I hope thisis true for the sake of my mini titan

I also wanted to note that they gyro pretty much becomes non functional towards the end of flight time as you will see in the last few seconds at the end there. I had been fying that battery for a good while before shooting the vid. I have been averaging around 10 minutes of flight time. Though I have been mostly hovering

EVERY helicopter drifts around like that if you don't correct fast enough; micro or not.

As he gets more time with it he'll learn to keep it in one spot. Same as all the rest of us did with our helis. It's just harder to learn to do that with the wee little guys.

I think I would rather have a 200-250 myself.

But I do like how they take a beating, and keep going, for the most part anyways....

Ya, If I had to recommend any walkera micro heli I would say get the 4#3b over the little larger 4G3. The 4G3 is WAYYY more fragile. This little 4#3b has already had its fair share of crashes. Only thing That has happened is a cracked canopy and I had to solder back a tail motor wire because it got pinched when I hit the wall.

Nice indoor flying.

Could it be when you're at the end of a battery, you're intuitively flying lower as you can't "climb out" of trouble??

And... As you're flying lower, you're being blown around by your own "rotor wake", thusly having a tough time with control??

I know that some of it was wash, and I was flying low for the cam but your right it is harder to pull out of trouble when the power is low and the gyro is freaking. I trimmed and trimmed that thing. It hovers with a slight drift forwards and backwards even when I am 3 feet in the air. The little swashes and arms they use are kinda sloppy and I think that is inducing some of the drifting, I checked its balance and it was ****.
