Atom micro heli
First real heli.
Bought from Heliguy (nowt to do with me!)
Well. What a difference. Now I understand what strides modern technology has made. I've no doubt this thing would have cost me a lot more to learn, without those gyros. Stunning. There's plenty of posts/reviews around, so I'll not add to them, this is just a beginner's (to heli's) view.
On arrival, the box is sooo tiny. Opening the box, is well, underwhelming. Neat, tidy, well packaged and presented, but so, well, tiny.
Great. Yet another transmitter. Out with the AA's. Glimpse at the manual, charge, fly. Sweet! Hang on, can I....? Yup. It did bind to my 9x, so I've been flying with that.
I've now got it to hover, fly around, sometimes even under full control..
It's great to be able to learn in your own lounge. It's a great heli, I haven't caused any damage to anything (where's that bit of wood?), and I'm learning (nose out, mostly).
Just wish I'd've saved my £40 and not bought that co-ax! Ah well, live and learn.
A great way to pick up these skills. Recommended for anyone.
