In this Instructable I will show you how to fly a toy R/C Helicopter. This tipe of helicopter is a toy with rather simple controls. It might take you a while to get realy good at it, but, as with a lot of things, practice makes perfect. OK, let's get started then :-).
Step 1: Safety first
Step 2: The basic controls
+ Throttle stick - This is the control stick on your left. When you push it up the helicopter begins to
gain height. When you push it down the helicopter slowly descends until it lands.
+ Direction stick - This is the control stick on your right. When you push it to the right the helicopter
will start to fly in a circle in a clockwise direction. When you push it to the left the
helicopter will start to spin in one place in an anti-clockwise direction.
+ Left and right trim buttons - If the helicopter starts to spin anti-clockwise in one place all by it self
then press the right trim button repeatedly until it stops. If the helicopter
starts to spin clockwise in one place all by it self then press the left trim
button repeatedly until it stops.
Step 3: Altitude control and sabilization
Step 4: Steering
anti-clockwise in one place (if you're not sure about this then read step 2 again). When you gently push the direction stick to the right the helicopter will gain a small amount of forward speed. Doing this will also make the helicopter slightly turn in a clockwise direction (if you push the direction stick to the right too much the helicopter will only turn in a clockwise circle), so you should try to compensate by pushing the direction stick to the left. Be careful though! The direction stick is a bit more sensitive when pushed to the left then when it's pushed to the right (it takes more time for the helicopter to react to the right direction stick command then for the left direction stick command). When you want to choose the directon where you want the helicopter to go then simply push the direction stick to the left. This will make the helicopter spin. When it comes to an angle that you like just push the direction stick to the right.
Step 5: Practice makes perfect
I hope this Instructable helped you and, ofcourse, post comments. I appreciate it.
