Okay, so there are coaxials that are easy to hover but don't actually do forward flight very well. Then there are the single rotors in fixed and collective pitch that are about as stable as a scared cat on wet ice. That was the truth of the RC heli world as I learned it. Now there is the Blade MSR that is single rotor, stable, and fast. If it can be that stable and agile at the same time why can't there be larger birds with those same virtues?

I need to add that I'm 58 years old and have absolutely no interest in 3D flying. Scale or semi-scale would my more my cup of tea. Large enough to fly outdoors would be nice too. Did the folks who make the MSR come up with some sort of magic or can I hope to see my dream heli come to be?

Thanks,
John

Larger helis are even more stable agile or twitchy. It is all how u set it up with the servos flybar paddles, engine RPM,s. It is all about how u want fly. I have two birds one is so docile and stable that even a cave man can fly it and my other is twitchy and aggressive but it is nice to fly but very fast and aggressive. It is all how u want to fly and set it up and fine tune it out of your likely.

Watch for the Blade SR, coming soon they say. It's a CP but looks like it will be very stable out of the box.

Gravity is what makes flying so much fun!

Blade SR. Marked that one down on my Must Have List. I was going to run out and buy a MSR but now I may wait and see.

Thanks,
John

It's the flybar and heavy paddles that makes the mSR so stable.

For outside you're going to want something big enough to see.
If you're a new pilot the standard advice comes in.
1. Get a sim and learn your orientations.
2. Buy the biggest chopper you can afford to REPAIR.

If you can go Nitro I personally favor the Raptor Titan SE and the Pantera .50. If you can only go electric I prefer the Trex-600.

The least expensive models are probably the Raptor and the Pantera. I personally went with the Pantera. I believe it's better designed and constructed. The Raptor has the advantage of being more widely supported.

E-flight seems to do there home work before going into production, some others well.... I am planning on picking up a mSR the weekend, even though I have many Helli's from the cmx to a Trex 700. The mSR just flies great!

I absolutely love my msR. I probably have around 100 flights on it. I fly several packs every day. Just last week I added some MicroHeli parts to it. I didn't need the parts, nothing was worn out just wanted some bling.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Hello,
I started out with my first heli when I was 65. Had heaps to learn so bought a sim and practiced.
After lots of research I went with a Raptor E-550.
Never looked back, its a very stable heli, forgiving and can be used in many roles.
I have since stretched this heli to a longer tail boom and blades and am currently fitting it to a TT AS 550 fuse (same manufacturer)
Dont be afraid of the larger machines, they do fly real nice.

get a sim
literally worth their weight in gold. I prefer Realflight but there are several good ones out these days. You can then alter a heli by adding say heavier paddles (in the sim) and tell what the difference will be in the real world.

Beating the air into submission, because we can!

+1 on the sim. Big birds are great to fly and IMO easier to work on.
