Firefly versus Honeybee V2

The Honeybee V2 has been put back into production in Dec 2012 and we will continue to supply both models going forward. *This was edited on 23-01-13 to update as to the fact of the discontinued Honeybee V2 being put back into production by the factory after originally being announced that the model had been discontinued – the comparison article is still relevant. The Honeybee was the 4 channel fixed pitch helicopter popular with first time buyers and its demise is not necessarily a bad thing as we think we... Read More

Titan (LARGE) RC Helicopter with Camera

The TITAN is… 2 and ½ times bigger than the ESKY Big Lama and we are pretty sure there is no bigger 4 channel helicopter. (We’ll get some pics beside the Big Lama when it arrives in) It is a tank (but it doesn’t fly like one), the most robust helicopter I have flown, if they made helicopters to go into battle this would be it. It has digital servos and 2 huge carbon brush motors that give it a punchy power control (this can even be increased and decreased... Read More

Learning How to Fly RC Helicopters: Tips for Beginners

This guide is brief tips for a beginner with a four channel controller to get airbourne.  I am using a Mode 2 controller in this guide and pictures from the Firefly manual. The controls: Starting off with a diagram of the radio and the rc helicopter (please remember that even if your radio is not identical to this radio ALL the principals are the same). I am missing out all the start up basics here on how to connect battery and detailed description of radio, we are going straight to the... Read More

FMS Flying Model Simulator

A little bit about FREE FMS: FMS is a freeware RC simulator for anyone to use. It’s not quite as user friendly as or has as many features as the commercial ones available right now. The flight characteristics with the transmitter interface are quite good including hovering, forward flight and aerobatics.  Flight simulator physics has progressed since the days of the FMS but if you want to get a good understanding as to how a helicopter feels to fly before trying it for real then this still continues to be...

Aerial Photography with RC Helicopters

Over the last year the use of remote control helicopters for aerial photography applications has taken a massive leap forward into the mainstream. This is mainly due to more exposure in the press and thus more people knowing what is possible. The basic technology has actually been available for a while now, although recently it has become cheaper, more reliable and with a few new innovations, much safer. So how can you go about getting your own aerial photography rig in the air? There are three main elements to consider:... Read More

REVIEW: Should we be Worried About SYMA RC Toy Helicopters

Something has happened this year – I am seeing Syma RC Helicopters everywhere – I checked it out when the freight forwarder who we use – mentioned he had imported lots of toy helicopters. I then checked the trending and yes a spike had grown… . I have seen them everywhere online too: Here are the spares for the same shop shown above. You’ll notice that the only spares provided involve blades, flybar and linkages – so if you break something else you may have trouble sourcing, we usually direct... Read More

The BEST Beginners RC Helicopter

With out mentioning any brands of helicopters initially I think we first need to address this on a generic level as what the BEST rc helicopter should be.   1. 4 channels minimum. A proper helicopter will have full control in all directions. You can get less than 4 channels and these helicopters are seen everywhere in retail outlets and online and they will not train you for any type of flight knowledge. BUT they may give you a bug for flying, so hopefully after reading this you will be... Read More

Align T Rex 450 Pro Super Combo Review and Build Guide

Introduction The T-Rex 450 Pro Super Combo is the top end Align RC helicopter. It shares very little of the core parts with the 450 Sport and 450 SE V2 varieties. Utilising a completely different frame design. Also it incorporates a tail servo built into the main frame, as opposed to being mounted to the tail boom.   It is aimed at the more advanced beginner or intermediate pilot due to its torque tube drive, as this provides more precise tail control, but also, increased costs in the event of a...
