Flying The Hercules Like A Pro

I’ve noticed a bit of comments online of people having a hard time flying RC helicopters. Whether the helicopter is big or small, inexpensive or high-end, or whether they themselves are old or young, some people just have a hard time with flying helicopters.

To be honest, it took me a while to learn to fly one. I tried to do everything at once and ended up crashing again and again. It wasn’t until I slowed down and read some material online that I was able to learn to fly really well.

The Unbreakable Hercules RC Helicopter is a seriously awesome helicopter. Anyone with a little patience can be flying it around their house or outdoors like a pro. Check out the video below about a guy at a hobby store that flies it with grace and elegance.

Do you want to fly your Hercules or other helicopter with this much control? It’s simple, just practice. But the most important thing to practice is the hover. Start indoors and slowly increase the throttle until it’s hovering a few inches above the ground. Keep practicing until it becomes natural and easy to hover. Then turn, without moving forward. Turn left and right while hovering. Once you get this down you’ve mastered the basics of flight.

Just keep taking it easy and you’ll be flying like a pro in no time. It may not sound as fun, but imagine flying your RC helicopter with precision through the house or office, or showing off to your friends as you fly it outside. Because if you take it slow and follow these simple steps, you’ll be flying like that in no time. The other option is to fly it haphazardly and crash it frequently and hope you can figure it out as you’re zooming through the air with little to no control.

Whatever helicopter you’re looking for, the Unbreakable Series is a great place to start. Check them out on HobbyTron.com.
