Was wondering if there were R/C enthusiasts here in the Bluff, I just purchased a Walkera 4F200, a major step up from a Double Horse 9053. Could use some help with the set up and binding.

Also wondering if there was a R/C hobby shop here also, the one in Valley Plaza closed a long time ago.

Wow, going from a DH9053 to a Walkera 4F200 is like going from a Radio Flyer tricycle to a Boss Hoss motorcycle.

Binding the TX is no problem, plug in the 4F200 batteries first, then turn on the TX before 10 seconds run out, after about 4 seconds, you'll get a red light on th RX of the helo and the blade collective will cycle 1 time, then it's almost ready to fly. You will have to set up the collective, pitch and rudder angles first.

Can't tell you how to set up the angles as I don't know what TX you have.

I've got a Walkera 4F200LM with a Walkera 2603TX and learned the hard way about angle settings.

I wouldn't recommend that you fly it as the 4F200 is an incredibly fast reacting helo, your DH is'nt really all that great to learn anything on, the DH is a 3.5 channel and the Walkera is a 6 channel, plus no fly bar but one heck of a gyro set.

Be prepared, the main drive gear on your new helo won't like hard landings, I'de recommend you buy 3 or 4 spares.

No hobby shops or clubs that I'm aware of, but up in Scott City, there is a Nitro R/C shop that can get any part you may need, and pull off most repairs.

They may even be able to set up your angles for you.

Best of luck with your new helo, and remember, keep the shiny side up.
