The continuing development of radio controlled model helicopters over the past few years has led to great sophistication. The actual flying of a model with modem radio equipment is easier, yet the process of flying has not changed a great deal, and the setting up process becomes increasingly complex. The author takes the reader from basics to competition through a series of chapters that include: Types of models. Pitch & throttle relationship. Motors. Modes & trays. Radio control equipment. Balancing. Gyrostabilizers. Hovering. First circuits. Advanced circuits. Advanced hovering. Auto-rotation. Introductory and advanced aerobatics. Contests. Do's and don'ts.
