As soon as you make the decision to buy a helicopter kit, you should sit down and evaluate your current skill level and options. Hexcopters can be quite challenging to fly due to the large number of variables involved in flying one.
First consider the propeller. There are many options that you can choose from. You can purchase a motor that has variable speed, noiseless operation, high or low torque, no noise, or some combination of these options. You can also purchase motors that use vacuum power or brushless motors.
You should also research the propeller configuration of your helicopter. The props must match the frame and be compatible with your own setup. In addition, they should be large enough to provide sufficient lift and speed to maintain flight stability, but not so large that they overwhelm the frame.
Next consider how well your aircraft controls. Most of the time, hexcops can be flown by a basic course of strings and ropes. However, you need to keep in mind that this is a beginner's model. Be sure to practice a little on the strings and ropes before attempting to fly a helicopter. You also need to select a battery that will have sufficient power for the time and distance that you will be flying.
You also need to consider the size of the battery you are using. A large-capacity battery can give you more flying time and distance but will probably need a larger battery than one with a smaller capacity.
When it comes to the configuration of your helicopter, you should consider the amount of room you have available. The best configuration is to build a quad that is made of several hexagons that are hexagonal in shape. Each hexagon is of the same size, and the motor and control system fit into the central hexagon. You may want to break up the overall design a bit so that the aircraft appears to be more stable.
When choosing the helicopter, you should take note of the weight and the amount of space that is available. If you can fit your helicopter on a shoestring and still get great performance, then that is what you should purchase. Once you have picked a helicopter that works well, you can go ahead and pick out a basic kit.
You will find that most helicopters include a small video camera for beginners. This will help you see how to fly the aircraft and how to control it. You can also pick out a more advanced model, which includes a transmitter that will allow you to fly in controlled airspace as well as a carrying case and a receiver.
Since you will be flying your helicopter, make sure that you have the best weather conditions that you can possibly get. It is recommended that you use a battery for your helicopter kit that will not overheat and blow up in mid-air. A battery that is rated for continuous flight will give you good results and you will not have to worry about overheating.
On the other hand, if you plan to operate your helicopter in controlled airspace, you should purchase a model that does not require a battery that will overheat. You should always try to have a model that uses a battery that is rated for continuous flight available at all times. This way, if there is an issue with your flight, you can land safely without burning up your battery.
Make sure that your helicopter kit comes with a transmitter. This will allow you to fly at your own discretion. You should also ensure that your helicopter comes with acarry bag and a charger so that you can recharge your batteries whenever you can.
Once you have made the decision to buy a helicopter kit, you should evaluate your current skills and options in order to determine whether or not you will enjoy flying your helicopter. After you have reviewed the information above, you should begin reading the instructions and tips and techniques on how to fly your helicopter. Hopefully, with your time and dedication, you will learn to fly your helicopter so well that you won't even think about changing to another kit.
