There is a great sight and flight instructions done by RADD.

Search up RADD's school of flight. It is really great.

Good Luck!

Consider getting a simulator. Realflight G3 or Reflex XTR are both good. But even FMS with a cable to use your transmitter is a good idea.

The BEST book on helicopter building and flying is Ray's Authoritative Helicopter Manual.

http://www.greathobbies.com/products...prod_id=RCMCHM

It is a little dated and doesn't have info on electric helis, but it has been INVALUABLE in helping set up my curves and my radio.

best thing to do is get the EHBG at the top of the forums on the sticky(or the link on the post above). Best Electric heli book I've seen. Then get reflex XTR. after that you should be in good shape.

You may also want to check out http://www.flingwing.net - a site I wrote on learning how to fly. I'd be very very careful learning on a T-rex SE, I hear blade strikes on those can easily strip your servo gears because of the direct linkages.

I buy servo gears 6 at a time! Not that I ever need them. I'll check out flingwing.

Thanks Bob
