Hello ! How are you ? My name is Mike , How can i help you have an R/C good time ?
I'm looking at picking up the 120S heli, I already have the Cub S w/ Safe, they don't feature the same transmitter/controller, do they?
Michael D.
i do not think so , but the one you have for your cub will work great
Didn't want to buy the RTF when I could get away with purchasing the BNF version instead.
Michael D.
you sure can
Ah, Ok, so I could just purchase the Bind N Fly variant and bind my cub controller?
Michael D.
it will work without issue
are you looking to purchase now ?
Probably in the next couples days, still weighing in.
How's it deal with light winds?
Michael D.
it is great , i fly mine all the time still. i love the 120/ it can take some wind without issue
The BNF option might open up some bigger options as well.
What would be your recommendation for a first time heli pilot?
Michael D.
the 120 is perfect for a beginner
plus with SAFE it is hard to crash:-)
I've finally gotten the Cub S on Expert High Rates down, but where I fly is usually evening to night at the courthouse by my place, usually no wind but occasionally a little.
Michael D.
Heli is alot different than plane, but once you understand the orientation, it is easy . the 120 is very forgiving . Perfect starter heli. and tons of fun
Awesome, that's great, just makes it even more affordable.
Michael D.
