Walkera 4#3 - Smallest 4 channel heli - First trial!

Hi everyone,

Eventually, I got my 4#3. Here is the first video I made.

This is truly the smallest heli I've ever had. It is harder to master than a Micron but much quieter. I really like it!

It is harder to master than the Micron? But anyway, is it ready to fly out of the box?

Great vid!

Hi Hikaru,

Yes it is absolutely ready to fly out of the box! It is a main improvement with respect to the Micron!
However, it is more difficult to master than the Micron and lacks its stability, a little squirrel-like. The inputs are very sensitive.

How much harder is it to fly than a coax? Will it actually hover?

I have been tempted to get this little heli for the great indoors during Winter.

rccary— a single rotor heli is very different from a co-axial heli. You would be smart to get a 300 or 400 size heli for your first single rotor bird.

Of course it will hover!

However, it is much more difficult than a coax. This one is not recommended as a first real heli since it is not really stable.
I recommend you two things before this one: first a simulator to get the reflexes and then a honeybee or something like that (much larger than the walkera) to get the real life training!

Thanks a lot!

This heli is indeed a real joy to fly! After a few days of practice I really like it. The unstability I mentioned earlier can easily be compensated when you get used of the machine. Besides, it is really ready to fly...

It takes a couple of good flights to get to grips and come to terms with any heli's handling. Once you have the basics though, your up up and away!...hopefully it'll come back though being so small!

It still amazes me how small they can make these things now...it wasn't that long ago that battery technology was the thing holding the development of electric heli's back. The larger wet fuelled heli's where out of most peoples price range and flying ability, although, these newer smaller, cleaner heli's really are helping our hobby/sport come on - and that can only be a good thing!

My remarks about the unstability were because I didn't fine tune my heli. Here are a few tricks that greatly help taming this little heli:


1. Check the flybar length. The two sides must be equal. Unequal flybar leads to very unstable flight. I had to cope with this during the first flights and this can be very difficult.
2. Check the tightening of your blades. Must be equal and not too loose.
3. Put the ball links on the inner hole of the servo arms. It makes a lot of difference. The servo course limitation makes it a lot smoother to fly!
