Blade® 270 CFX heli

A Stellar Performance Partnership

The Blade® 270 CFX heli goes beyond unlimited performance for its size. By combining the high power of a 22.2V Li-Po battery into a mini-class machine with a rigid carbon-fiber airframe, the result is a helicopter you can pound the pitch with and still have power in reserve. But what sets the 270 CFX truly apart is the exclusive partnership Spektrum™, BeastX® and SAFE® technologies bring together. Not only do you get industry-leading control and utter precision that’s absolutely stable, SAFE technology helps you prevent a crash at the press of a button with Panic Recovery mode that will return this heli to a level attitude with the least loss of altitude.                              

Panic Recovery Mode

If you get into trouble while flying, just push the Panic button and move the control sticks to their neutral position. SAFE technology will return the helicopter to a level attitude.                                                                                                                                                                                                 

High-Voltage Power

The 22.2V power system allows the high-torque motor to develop its rated power at a much lower Amp-draw than the typical 3S L-Po power setup. As a result, performance is increased while the power system operates at lower operating temperatures.                                                                                                          

Spektrum™ AR7210BX

In one single compact unit you get the combined benefits of a highspeed 7-channel receiver and 6-axis flybarless system all in one that’s simple to program and fine-tune without a computer. Plus, Panic Recovery mode of SAFE® technology means you can prevent a crash at the press of a button.

Walkera Dragonfly V450D03 6CH Flybarless CCPM RC Helicopter RTF 2.4GHz w/ Devo 7 TX

DESCRIPTION

The Lite Version of the Flagship V450D01 Helicopter – the Walkera V450D03 Flybarless Helicopter. The Walkera factory did produce 450 class helicopters, they uses high end material like carbon fiber and CNC aluminum, packed with high tech 6-Axis gyro and digital metal gear servos. They revised it a few times, updated some electronics and V450D01 became the flagship model in their product line. However the materials needs some cost. So to make a more remarkable sales, the factory tried to make a 450 class heli with lower cost, that’s the V450D03. But don’t worry, this big helicopter is not a “downgraded” one, it keeps the great electronics like the brushless motor, the digital metal gear servo, and the 6-axis gyro. Just changed some materials, for example using carbon fiber reinforced plastics, this already cuts much of the cost. So you’ll find the price and the performance both good, it’s super worthy. Not only producing high cost quality helicopters, but also suits the market needs.                                                                                                                                                                                             The helicopter is light, it’s light weight makes it more direct control and more agility. Also a point to notice is the precision on the rotor head and tail assembly, they have ZERO gaps, nothing is loosen. Flying the V450D03 is easy, because it has a responsive chassis and very direct control, thanks to the use of Plastic, this is what makes the V450D03 so special. You may say Plastic Heli is cheaper than Carbon Fiber + Metal Heli, well, not exactly, because now-a-days plastic industry has improved a lot, they mix composite material into the plastic, sometimes they are stronger and lighter. Besides, it’s no cheap, because Plastic Parts need molding, this molding process cost a lot more than you think, Walkera has taken a bold move. Plastic gives the chassis elasticity, you can actually feel this when you are flying, it feels smoother over that Carbon Fiber and Aluminum helis, that’s what makes the V450D03 so cool.                                              Different from the V450D01, almost all material used is different. For the V450D01 it is Carbon Fiber + Metal, and for the V450D03, it’s almost all plastics. And they have different design in structure, keeps all the best electronics but with better arrangement on them.                                                                                                                                                                                                 No matter you are a Beginners or Expert, you will love the V450D03. It has the Stability, thanks to 6-Axis Gyro, it has the Agility and Handling, thanks to the well made Plastic parts, the brushless power system and digital metal gear servos. So if you are a beginner with experience on Co-Axial and Single Rotor Helis, this is your best choice for outdoor heli (Remember to put training kit on the landing skids to start practicing).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

Same as other newer Walkera Models, the Super CP is capable of online update, with the updater UP02 and UP02A adaptor (Purchase Seperately).

Flying Toy and Hobby RC Helicopters

copter38

In the RC hobby, flying RC helicopters is often considered the hardest RC skill to master. This might make the marketing claims for easy-to-fly toy RC helicopters hard to understand. The difference is in the helicopter design, the controls, and the range of movement that the helicopter is capable of performing.

Hobby-grade RC helicopters are designed to look and operate very much like full-size helicopters.

Toy-grade helicopters are configured and operate a little differently. They are designed for more stable flight so that children can more easily use the transmitter and control the flight. These changes mean that the helicopter is not capable of the same speed or maneuvers as hobby-grade helicopters.Both can still be fun to fly.                                                  

Controlling RC Helicopters

What you can do with an RC helicopter (such as going up and down) are actions initiated by radio signals from the transmitter. The number of channels on a transmitter tells you the number of actions that you can control on the RC.

These actions usually involve things like changing the pitch (tilt) of the rotor blades or making the blades spin faster. A hobby-grade RC helicopter normally requires at least four or five channels for normal flight that closely mimics the controls and flight of full-size helicopters.Toy-grade helicopters may have only 2 or 3 channels and much more limited actions.

Flying Toy RC Helicopters

The typical toy heli is a 2- or 3-channel model that can fly up and down, maybe forward and sometimes backward, and go left and right. It may run at a constant speed. It can hover in place but it’s probably not going to be able to do high speed chases, loops and rolls, or inverted flight.

In order to provide more stable flight, the tail may not have the familiar tail rotor and blades of real helicopters that are set perpendicular to the main rotor.                                        

Instead they often have fixed pitch, counter-rotating dual main rotors (ringed for safety). These rotors eliminate the need for the operator to use tail rotor controls to counteract a natural phenomenum of helicopter flight that makes the body of the helicopter want to spin around and around.

Because the main rotors are fixed pitch (blades don’t tilt independently), there are no cyclic controls — tilting of the main rotor — for climbing and diving or doing banking turns. Instead, the dual main rotors provide level turning. Some models have a small rotor on the tail (parallel to the main rotors) or vertical rotors in other locations that control forward flight and provides further stability.

These design changes sacrifice some of the maneuverability found in hobby-grade helicopters but it also means that the pilot needs to perform fewer actions to keep the helicopter in flight. Simpler controls, slower speed, and less aerobatics ability makes these toy helicopters easier to fly and provide children and novice pilots with more entertainment value. It doesn’t mean that you can master RC helicopter flight right out of the package though. Even with the toy helis it takes patience and practice to hover, fly around the room, and land upright.

For a step up from toy helicopters but with the stability features that make for easier flight, consider a hobby-grade Blade CX. It provides easier hovering and control but has the advanced features of hobby helicopters.

Flying Hobby RC Helicopters

With hobby-grade RC helicopters there are many more actions that the pilot can do and needs to perform to keep the helicopter aloft. Variable pitch rotors and other design features allow the helicopters to do more diving, climbing, rolls, and loops in addition to going up and down and hovering. These actions along with adjustable speed make hobby helicopters extremely challenging to fly but also more exciting.

Transmitters for hobby RC helicopters may come with many channels to control basic helicopter functions, provide more precise control of mixed actions, and change settings on the helicopter from a distance; but, for basic flight four or five channels is normal.         cameracopter

All four or five channels are activated with just the two sticks on the transmitter. The movements typically controlled by a 5-channel transmitter are:
