Homemade $3000 helicopter Chian

This video has been on the web for a while, but we could resist posting it up ourselves. The DIY chopper shown swooping around town can reach a claimed height of 100 feet and cost around 20,000RMB to build!


Check back next Friday for another video of local Chinese ingenuity.

    Remote Helicopter, the video is of a full size helicopter with an actual guy flying it, not an R/C model.

    Why does the helicopter not lift off? Not enough pitch on the blades. For the CP2: lengthen the pitch links to increase the blade pitch. The best way to set the blade pitch is to disconnect the main and tail motor wires for the 4 in 1 controller (noting their positions) then switch your TX on and connect the heli battery. Allow the gyro to calibrate then switch the idle up switch on (top left of TX) then centre the throttle stick (leave trim at the bottom).
