Help for a new guy please....
Hi Guys, I am just brand new to the forum. I originally posted this under the for sale area, oops....I think this is the best palce.

My question is this: I was given a nitro helicopter by a friend in exchange for a little work and also to possibly help me get into flying rc helis.

After looking around and pondering for a while, I have decided that a smaller electric heli would fit me much better. What I would like to do is sell or trade what I have and get an electric, but am not sure how much (if anything) it is worth...any ideas?...

Here is what I know about the helicopter:
- X-cell XL-Pro
- YS 61-S engine
- carbon fiber MR blades
- carbon fiber TR blades
- all metal rotor head
- GY601 gyro
- Futaba 72 mhz FP-R309DPS receiver
- Futaba GV-1 governor
- Futaba S9204, 9202, 9251 servos

One of the MR blades has a slight ding in it, the tail boom is brand new (aluminum) as the old one was slightly bent, right skid slightly bent (just the tip), new vertical stabilizer.
I am in the Seattle area.
Thanks for any help-

Just fly it. That is a nice stable bird to start with. Going electric at your stage will reduce your flight time and a smaller heli is HARDER to learn on. they are faster and don't react well to crashes. Not to mention your replacement cost on batteries. Even though that is a nice X-cell I would still use it.. It's a 60 so you will learn collective management which is VERY important even with high power electrics. . It is big so it is stable. and you will also see it better when it gets a little far from you.. Keeping the head speed down and learning to fly that baby you could easily see 10-13 minute flights on it. Compared to 4-6 minutes MAX on a smaller electric. More air time means FASTER learning. Also, you have a VERY good chance at auto rotating that bird.. NO chance on a smaller bird at your skill level...

FLY IT!!!!!

Crash costs for that bird will be substantial to say the least but it will be a stable platform.Rick

heli
Get a simulator then get some personal help. If someone could put you on a buddy cord that will cut your crashing down a lot until you solo, remember take your time go slow until you can fly alone. Keep the heli you have it will be easyer to fly than a 450--500size, nitro helis are good for starters because of all the starting and stopping you do when learning to hover.
