Honey Bee King II Instruction Manual

I just purchased a new Honey Bee King II and like the chopper so far.

However, in my 60 plus years of modeling, I don't think I have ever seen a worse instruction manual. Totally worthless except to order parts. As a
newby to Heli's, I have no idea what all of the switches and knobs do on the Xmitter, and expected the manual to tell me some of the basics. It didn't. Because of that, I would encourage people who know next to nothing about the Heli thing, look at the manual before you buy a chopper, or as I had to do, look up a chopper pilot and spend some time with him .

I agree. For instance, "in which direction is the gyro switch for head-hold".?
Mine doesn't have any effect eirher way. !
