Further than you can see. 400-500 feet. The big one I'm building will be autonomous with GPS and will not need a remote.

My cousin has been into R/C cars for a good number of years now. He races and works at an R/C track somewhere in Orange County. I never got into it and good thing because firearms are enough of a money pit

You've brought up another of my hobbies.. I'm a long-time RC'er - 35+ years and am very involved in the helicopter side of things. I also do airplanes, just not too much anymore.

If you're interested, there's a large helicopter Fun-fly happening next week, Oct4-7 about an hour or so South of you in Fallbrook. PM me if you want some more info, or have questions about your trip to the hobby shop.

For now, here's a pic of my favorite RC "toy" - Bergen Intrepid Turbine

How much would a pretty good helicopter cost? I'm guessing they're a few hundred and would HATE to crash the thing or fly it out of range and it crashes in someone's backyard 4 blocks away. My cousin n' I bought some rocket at Micheal's and those things are pretty awesome Although not r/c, of course.

hundreds......try thousands, the cheap ones suck and will crash. I crashed my first heli a few times and spent around $1000 just fixing it.

first and foremost if you want to fly ANYTHING buy this first the remote:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...Firmware_.html

perfect starter remote and you can use this with your future heli/plane if you decide to get one, it is a GREAT price and comes with a receiver cant go wrong for a 9 channel remote.

you can go only up from there.

then buy this:

http://www.dealextreme.com/p/usb-2-0...r-dongle-51480

phoenix flight is the best simulator and if you get this one you can even update it with no problems. Or you can spend $200 and buy a legit version.

I love it! Been trying to find time to learn heli's for years. Frustration is the name of my game, I have real flight something or other, and while I try it, I seem to lose reference if I do anything other than hover and quit, then I have to learn to hover all over again. It has been frustrating, with out a sim it seems to be out of my budget.

I hate expensive Hobbies, but I hate cheap ones more....

About a year ago my brother told me he traded some guns for some RC cars, I considered getting him commited. Then I visited him and he let me beat up some of his RC cars. I bought a Traxxas Slash 4x4 about a week and a half ago, I keep beating the holy crap out of it and it keeps going. (I've had to replace a few cheap parts) Will be buying a RTF Hi Tec Sky Scout (the new iteration of Easy Star RTF) in the next month.

As i said above, if you have never flown anything before spend your money on a simulator first...links above.

Here's a fun video of the quadrocopter that I built. I eventually want to get it to fly by itself, but I'm still working on the electronics.

This was a Replay XD.

To reduce shaking, you have to balance all of the blades front/back and side/side. It's not easy with multiple small blades but makes a big difference.

Also you can mount the camera using the very rubbery double-sided tape Heli's use for the Gyro.


Here's my MQX with an R/C Grappling Hook.

I have a few helicopters... Trex 450, Shogun 400, Blade 3D, and a few other small electrics. I had a Hirobo .30 size heli but its too loud and inconvenient to find a place to fly it.

Also have a .40 size trainer plane just hanging in my shed out back...

Yup, I got one of those, I started the 3d printing because of it. I need a custom part for the back servos cause wood wasnt doing it. After buying it I have read nothing but bad reviews on this model.

It still hangs waiting to be assembled.
