RC Helicopter Review | HiSKY HCP 80 V2 RC Helicopter Review | RC Helicopters for Beginners
This is a great looking RC Helicopter and an extremely nimble and responsive flyer
My second RC Helicopter is proving to be a challenge but I’m determined to master it. This model was sent to me by Banggood as they were looking to find a beginner to RC Helicopter flying to evaluate some of the fantastic range of RC Helicopters they sell. I passed it on to my son-in-law who put it through its paces and set it up for me. I had previously flown the WLtoys V931 CLICK THIS LINK and wanted to experience how models differ from each other. My son-in-law told me to expect a degree of difficulty with this model and suggested I took it very slow.

In a word, WOW! This RC Helicopter is not an easy model to fly. You have to be very very careful on how you move the sticks as any jerky reactions and you will end up losing control which I did on a number of occasions. Luckily it is very robust and resilient to crashes. However once you start mastering the controls it becomes totally addictive for you can visualize how much fun this super little flyer is going to be. It absolutely flies through the air like a little bullet but can hover sedately. The speed and power it generates from the tiny 150 mAh RC Helicopter battery is really unbelievable. I fly RC Quadcopters on a daily basis but this is a whole new ball game.
18-03-205: It is far too windy today to attempt outdoor flying so I spent sometime just lifting it off the ground and landing it indoors. I also spend some time looking at the reviews online and some of these guys make it look really easy to fly. For me it is not but I with a great deal of patience I am determined to master it. What is reassuring is that spare parts are inexpensive and available from Banggood and I’ve listed them at the bottom of this page.
Check this video out for some radical indoor flying, I wish!
