The Walkera V450D03 Flybarless Helicopter offers incredible performance in a completely "Ready to Fly" package. No complicated setup or building is required with this model. Simply open the box, charge the battery and fly!
The V450D03 is great for beginners and advanced pilots alike. Featuring a high-precision 6-axis gyro system, this model provides the ultimate in stability and flight control. The super stable flight characteristics make it very forgiving for less experienced pilots, while the precision performance of the Gen. II 6-axis gyro provides locked-in control for 3D flight.
The frame is constructed from carbon reinforced plastic making it very lightweight while maintaining rigidity and strength. A brushless power system is pre-installed capable of handling anything from hovering to hard 3D. The servos are digital and metal geared providing precision, speed and durability. The tail is belt driven offering smooth, quiet and efficient operation. The head block is aluminium providing rigid support for the blade grips and the blades are beautifully finished carbon fiber yielding crisp flight response.
The included Devo 7 transmitter offers a whole host of programmable heli pitch curves, throttle curves, EPA and much more! The backlit LCD screen is easy to read even in direct sunlight, while the ball bearing gimbals provide smooth and precise movement of the control sticks.
Put simply, if you are looking for a ready to fly 450 size helicopter, it doesn't get much better than this!

Was planning to get this heli after flying the V911 V912 V913 V977. Not Flown 3D yet and wondering if the 6axis gyro makes it as steady as the V977. I want to get my out door orientation and flying towards me better with this and hopefully 3D after. Has everyone stopped purchasing this because there is a better upgraded version? This will be my first actual "real" heli.
I got this heli two years ago and its pretty stable with the 6 axis gyro. for a first 450 size heli I think it would be a good heli for you since its cheap and wery beginer friendly, the frame and tailbox is all plastic so its wery easy to to fix and replase parts when you crash. the heli does not fly wery good "3D" in my opinion becouse of the feel of the heli with the gyro trying to auto level when not hovering normal. but its fine for learnig orientation of different maneuvers. its also nice that its "RTF" and not a "KIT" so you dont have to build it yourself.
My sugestion is that if you want to move up to bigger helis and learn and practise 3D this is a nice bird to start with, but as you get bether you probably want something bether that does not have a "6 axis" gyro witch is no good for presision manovering.
When we stop the tail rotor (with the grass on landing - for example), but main rotor is still rotating with its inertia...
What spare part will then fault, to protect others for damage?
Sorry my poor English.
If you are hitting the rotors blades and binding them you have the grips to tight..losen the grip screws until there is just a slight resistance to you moving them in the grips... In all the years I have flown I have never lost any parts on the tail boom nor a belt drive...
This is my first real Heli and I went to test it out this weekend. probably should not have done so on Pavement now i need to know what replacement blades do i buy? also is there a anti tip kit to install on the landing gear to help keep from the main blades striking the ground?
If you are new to flying rc helicopter, I wouldn't have recommended this size heli. You should have considered a coaxial heli or fixed pitch heli first. However, since you have invested in this intermediate/advance heli, you can find a landing gear kit at this hobbyking.com site for less than $10. Just type in the search window landing gear kit. Even with this kit, you will still crash this heli with a hard landing or tip over. You may want to pick up a simulation kit for less than $25 at this site too. It will save you so much money and frustration by practicing your flights on the computer first till you are comfortable enough to fly the real thing. I'm telling you this from 7yrs experience. Don't give up.
After setup this unit is doing me ok. I put some landing training gear on it to help keep the rotors from dragging when off level. Not much help tho when landing upside down (hehehe). Bent the main shaft and took 23 teeth off the main drive gear. Parts on the way, gonna try keeping it upright next outing.
New to Helis with 20 years at RC airplanes. Electronic technician in the service for Hueys and Cobras. This chopper flew good out of the box, however it does not act like it has accelerometers working to compensate for the wind. The basic program does not allow for enough power available to pull the heli out of trouble quickly. I reprogrammed the basic for 70 to 80 percent throttle vs 60-70 and 7 degrees max pitch vs 5 degrees. Spare parts can be had at heli pal. Much better chopper than the blade cp I had for about the same price. This chopper is stable short of AFCS and responsive even on beginner settings. If you have mastered flying towards you, this is a great entry to 3d heli. It performs just fine on a 3s 2200 20c. The battery space is small so a 2700 does not fit.
