PostSubject: HBFP V2 just arrived; 2 ?'s   Thu Sep 10, 2009 2:54 pm

Saw it for a brief moment when I stopped in from work. Have 2 questions.

1) I ordered a bunch of spare parts (head parts recommended on this forum) and while the parts in the manual look identical to what came, the E-sky part #'s are different from those in the manual. I'm assuming they just put a new part number on these b/c it's a new version of the heli but they are still identical, but can someone confirm this is what usually happens.

2) I'm coming from a Lama v4 that I can fly pretty well most of the time. Any tips to focus on in pre-flight or trying to hover this for the first time?

I'm pretty excited and hope I don't do something stupid. I'm still learning about know what to tweak when the heli starts to do something (meaning prop trim, gain, swash plates, etc) so I'm pretty nervous b/c I'm king of going somewhat blind into this not knowing if it's me or the setup.

Thanks!

1. Yeah, for most parts they just change #'s, but they are identical!
2. Just make sure you set up it properly, and take it slow! And maybe you should use simulator!

thanks. will watch again on train ride home.

I didn't use training gear at all with my Lama V4. I'll probably put the gear on before I even put the batteries in the transmitter on this one though!

Congrats on your new heli. Keep in mind though , that flying single rotor helis are way different than the coaxials. But If you google RADD's school of flight, you'll be able to fly your heli in no time without crashes. Make sure you put some trasining gears on . Good luck and let us know your progress. :bigthumb:

a lot of people swear by the RADD method but it wasn`t for me,i found it so boring orange83

saying that though,it probably took me longer but i can honestly say i loved every minute of being a noob

you may not think that now but in a few months you just might smiley-happy057

I've always felt flying the HBFP was a bit like driving on ice, you only have the slightest bit of control, but as you've prob seen from my vids and others you can do a WHOLE LOT with the little bit of control orange68

So keep at it and never get discouraged, always try to laugh at your crashes and ALWAYS take pics and/or vids so we can laugh at them too, we'll share the pain itsok_170
