    Okay. Well let's start with this. What kind of helicopter is it? Ive been flying for about 3 years, so I should be able to help you out somehow.

    Okay so I looked this heli up on the net. Its a 3 channel fixed pitch helicopter, which means that the main and tail rotor blades stay the same pitch. Anyways so you say that you crashed into a tree? If I were you id start learning to hover and keep your hover in one spot. You'll need to adjust you trims on your receiver to keep it steady. Start with that and let me know how you do.

    Yea it will take some time and parts. But you will get the hang of it. I would highly sujest looking up a cheap flight simulator on eBay. Got mine for like $18.00.

    jeezus...thats alot of flying machines for sure. I started out with one of the small fly in you house ones, moved on to the dh 9116, dh 9053, then tried my hand with the dynam e razor 450. Got good at the then moved on to the trex 450, and goblin 550. Never flew any quad copters. I just recently traded my trex for a losi lst xxl.
