I am going to show you how to fly a mini helicopter. I'm using a Ed hardy toy helicopter that i got for 15$.

Step 1: Charging

First put batteries in your charger and remote. After that, charge your helicopter.
I love the RC hobby and your post is most helpful for beginners

These things can be quite tricky, as you've learned how could you add more to this?
So far you've only really said to start slowly then build speed, and not to use so much throttle as to hit the ceiling.

E.g. how do you combine throttle with direction, how do you land it etc?


There is no forward or reverse control, its 2 channels.  It goes up/down, turns to the left/right.  Mostly, it just crashes into things, until it breaks.

Well... i hope have fun with breaking your little toys.... they're not all the same.
Yes they're like that. I suspect it's a marketing strategy to get people to buy better models...

The best helicopter ive come accros is the syma s107 for around £20 with LiPo batterys 3 channel and a alumium body
 it's like I told you all along...it's a conspiracy.
establishment sucks

Those little copters are as easy as they come, to really give people an idea how to fly these, make an Instructable on a Nitro Heli, those are hard, plus if you fail there goes $1000. If you can make an 'Ible on Nitro Helis that will get ppl to successfully fly one of them, then, it won't matter if they have a cheaper heli.
