Nikko's SkyWatcher helicopter model

Hi all,

Please, if somebody has some experience with helicopter model Nikko
SkyWatcher. Namely, I have recently bought one and now I find it very
interesting to play with.

But, what interests me is it really possible to control its movement
forward?

For instance, is it possible to make it go forward and then to stop its
movement just by letting it float.

What seems to me now is that it's not possible but just to manually adjust
elevator dial before the flight. This way, it seems that it's hard to
control the helicopter once that it's in the air. Am I wrong?


Thanks & regards,

/Denis

It really is.

It is, although it takes some work from the flyer. It won't do it all by
itself.

No, it's not possible to do that. It's possible to adjus it to the point
where the machine will leave the ground in essentially a "not moving"
condition, but it won't stay there and if you want it to, you have to make
it (by using the control sticks)

This way, it seems that it's hard to

No, and that's why helicopters are more of a challenge than a fixed wing
aeroplane or a 2 dimensional car or boat.

Thanks a lot Beav!

As I understood from your e-mail, you also have SkyWatcher?
If true, then it seems to me now that I finally have found someone else
interested in this topic

If you don't mind, please, I would put you then some more questions to
discuss, regarding this aircraft... okay with you?

I've played with one, but I don't own one.

It's always Ok with me, but there are FAR more knowledgable people than me
when it comes to electric powered heli's. Electrics really aren't my "thing"
at all.
