About the author

About Matt:I think it’s safe to say I’ve done a little bit of everything in RC. That said, I predominately race off-road and my current passion is short course. One of my all-time favorite classes is oval carpet racing. Besides racing, I can often be found working on one of my many never-complete projects, and it seems I have an ever growing collection of rock crawlers—specifically scale crawlers.

    I need help that’s for sure. I bought a fixed pitch one from Walkera. It has a great radio and looks awesome. I had it in the air for about 30 second and trashed the rotor blades!! I have know idea what in the world I’m doing and don’t know anyone that flies. It has been sitting around for months waiting for me to crash it again!

    I just got started with an ESky Lama V4 and it’s been fun. Not very maneuverable but I don’t know that as a beginner, I could have really handled the more nimble helicopters. My next step will be a Blade MCP-X that I can work on my maneuvering with, indoors. Then I’ll move up to outdoor flight. I agree though…helicopters are addictive.
