RC Helicopters: A Guide Let’s say you have the best RC helicopter and it is your first time to try it to fly. Like every other real plane there should always be a pre-flight and post flight checklist you need to follow in order that your RC helicopter flies smoothly and lands safely as well. These are the things that you would want to check every time you fly a helicopter, before you take it up and after you’re done flying. These will guarantee that you don’t have a day of just buying parts and you will have a lot of good enjoyable hours on your helicopter with little things like these. Make sure that before you fly you have to turn the radio on first then you plug in the helicopter which is the most important thing to do. Don’t forget to turn on the helicopters first and then the radios which the little receiver goes into a standby mode and doesn’t link to the radio which everyone thinks they got a bad helicopter. Remember is to turn on the remote first and you won’t have all of those problems then you’re all set. When plugging in the helicopter it has a jar on board which you have to remember. As soon as you plug it in set it down on a flat surface and let it be still for a few seconds and wait for the lights. Wait first for it to show the lights pop on. Moving it around after you have just plugged it on the gyro won’t know what ‘still’ is. After you plug it in you have to set it down so it knows what means to be still. It will think that is ‘still’ means moving if move it around and not setting it down which the consequence is it will fly extremely radical. Flying it would be a problem afterwards. Obviously, you want to fly it with a fully charged battery. Crashing it on your first flight, here is a side checklist you need to do first. First thing is your Y bar on top of the main helicopter blades should be free moving. It should be bouncing back and forth so you know it is not binding when you try to hit it with your fingers. This is what keeps your helicopter stable if it can move as freely as possible. If it is tight, lockdown or binding the means that the Y bar of the helicopter is going to fly radically.
