My E550 Experience
I have been away from heli's for about 9+years and I decided I wanted to try it again. I bought a nitro FB because that was what I remembered, didn't have electrics. so through the advice of a good friend, Dr. Ben, I bought the E550. with his help and guidance, and because I didn't have a clue about FBL or FBL system, I took the plunge. I flew the helicopter this past weekend. It was a huge milestone for me. my past level of flying was basic circuits, figure eights, some nose in, and I think I looped once or twice. so at best I was hoping to be able to at least hover. Well I was blown away, my first flight was just hovering and trying to get the feel for the heli and FBL system. the second flight I got a little bolder and did some hover/flight circuit's. Then two flights after that I took off in full forward flight. this heli, to me, had the feel of a 60 size ship. it is a fantastic machine. I have never been a "electric" rc person at all, but this heli has changed that. Also I have to say if it was not for Dr. Ben's help, this would have been a bad experience for me. His style of helping is like a teacher, he will show you, guide you, and then check your work, but you are going to do the work. that's what helps you learn, so many just want someone to do it for them. the Companies that he reps for are lucky to have him. Thanks Ben & Thunder Tiger.
it feels great to come back to heli's.

Glad you are liking it.

In my experiences so far it has just been a plug and fly experience for me. It has become my favorite heli to grab and fly.

I just ordered the green sticker set to change up the appearances. It is super easy to change batteries and keep going.

Have fun!
