Okay - so i've flown this thing a LOT, and as a result got a lot better than i was when i first got it.

One tip is to ALWAYS be working the sticks when flying a multi-copter.

Practice, practice. Forget about YAW/Rudder, just concentrate on the other stuff. I went from having a very bouncy hover to a point where i could fly it 16" in front of my face in about 6-8" of vertical airspace and not worry too much. Took about 2 weeks of flying it everyday.

Unfortunately though, I crashed it too much and now it automatically un-binds mid-flight. Gotta fix that. Hoping its just a loose battery connection :'(

What price range are you looking at? The answers will differ widely based on this.

Thank you
If you are an absolute beginner and have no intentions to race anytime soon, I recommend Traxxas line of electrics. Not many brands have the range that Traxxas has for electrics. No buggies though, you can get SC trucks, drift cars, rally etc.

Electrics are not raced currently in India. Nitro is where the racing action is.

Hey, Thank you for your reply. I don't ever intend to race, only play around every other weekend. Where can I buy a Traxxas car from? I live in Kolkata.

I finally got to try my Hubsan X4 H107c.Really nice build quality .The video footage from camera, looks good.

Flying needs some practice,but once you get it ,it is absolute fun.

The rotor blades need to be taken care off, as they spin really fast that my 5 year old son got a minor scratch which bled .So I keep my kid away, while I fly the quad copter, at a safe distance.

Hi RC experts,

I want to buy a RC boat. I have a fairly large water body in our complex(a pond, if you will), and I want to have some fun out there. Budget is very little. 5k at max. If I really get into this hobby, will buy something better in future. I need good range so that I can control it from the balcony of our flat.

Please advice.

Neel
