They are a great little heli.I had 2 of them up until a month ago.
I jumped from a picooz to a 52.
28 blades later,I found I could hover it.
I found the 64C fibreglass blades made it nice for just hovering in the living room.
I hear that venom made the instruction the way it should be.
The Walkera manual is very confusing.

Jason,wow i love this walkera 52/venom heli. i am blown away at how stable and easy to fly it is. i have a 64c which never really flew well (death wobbles).but this hlei flew perfectly out of the box! it will be great when mario finishes the frames for these little guys! this thing is rock stable in a hover. i'll try the 64c blades on it.
cheers, johnw

I can't wait to see what mario comes up with for the 52. It really is a nice flying heli when you change it to the Medusa brushless motor and better lipo's. And a GWS tail motor. I hope the new frame that mario is coming up with will give it the looks of the new 4-3 frame. I love the looks that his new frames give the stock 4-3.

john or mario....i assume you have to lengthen the wires coming out of the servos so they can reach the 4-1. yes?

Only if you have a much older model. i only had to do that once with my very first 4-3. all the others had longer wires on the servos so they did reach.

I agree i just started flying my 52# and am shocked with how stable it is!
i love it. it's a good heli for moveing up from the 4#3.

I went straight from a fp heli to the 52 with about 3 years in between them. The 52 when setup right, can perform alot to keep you interested in it. It is real easy to loop and roll it and it will do great inverted flight. The HH gyro that is built in the 4in1 is probably the best in the RTF models. The one part that i hated the most was the landing gear. They would snap in a easy landing. And the aluminum frame is easily bent. So i hope that mario will come up with a great looking design. I made a few CF frame plates and battery plates that did the job but did not look that great. I would love it to look just like the 4-3 frames but for the 52.

Medusa Powered Venom/52

Well my new Venom/52 didn't stay brushed for long(15 flights).
This is by far the easiest heli to convert to brushless.
Parts:
1:Medusa 12mmx30mm afterburner 4100kv BL Motor
1:Feigao 6A Brushless ESC
1:8Tooth .5Mod 1.5MM bore Pinion
Walkera 64C Blades
stock 3S li-po
It flies like a dream!
Cheers, johnw

Hi John
Iam only really a hoverer and the 64C blades made it really docile.But they are stronger.So they wont break easy and any impact force will be transfered to other parts of the heli.Iam curious as to how the 64C blades go flying around.
I have the 64#C1 too and that suffered with terrible death wobbles until I unscrewed the bolt that pivots the blade control set.It was binding on the bearing and the flybar always returned to one side.It was an instant fix.

John,That looks great!
You can strap the 64C battery under it too if you want 10-15 mins.
