We have spent alot of time and money testing various Chinese helicopters at the HobbyKing office, most with dissapointing results, until now.
Whether your looking to step up from Co-Ax Helicopters or learning to fly from scratch the HobbyKing HK-190 Fixed Pitch 2.4ghz Micro Helicopter is the perfect package. Featuring stable flight characteristics and full 4 channel control this fixed pitch helicopter is a great way to learn to fly more advanced maneuvers than a coaxial helicopter can offer.
The HK-190 comes completely assembled and all you need to do is charge the included battery using the supplied USB cable or via the transmitter and you will be ready to fly in around 15 minutes.
The included 2.4ghz transmitter with digital trims offers interference free flying while the built in gyro ensures stable and level flight. A spare set of blades come with the kit to get you back in the air if you have any bumps.

Everything is better than I expected. Flexable landing gear and blade makes safe flight.
I flew in my house. walking around every rooms.
controller has trim adjust, not perfact.
It seems not suitable for outside in windy weither.The best micro heli! I tried a bunch of cheap helis like this but this is definitely the best one out there.
Stable but also agile. Long flight time. The flight characteristics are rather unsymmetric though, right turns are much more easier than left and there is some coupling to pitch and bank. The trim balance also tends to change with battery state, so you often need to retrim mid-flight, but all these are great practice for a larger helicopter. It has greater speed that a counter-rotating heli and it doesn't right itself as fast.
It does sometimes break if you crash with power but the breakpoints are smartly designed so you usually only need to stock up on blades and flybars. Except for the undercarriage which is too weak and breaks easily, and it has a nasty habit of breaking at the attachment, leaving a stud inside the hole so you can't put in a replacement.
A couple of flight tips:
You need right bank at take off to counter the rightwards wind from the tail rotor. Try to take off quickly in one swift motion. But not too quick as a sudden zero-to-full acceleration on the main rotor will produce too much torque for the tail to counter and it will spin.
Two servos are stronger than one, so for the maximum acceleration try not pointing the nose to fowards and pitching down, but initially pointing the nose 45 degrees left and pitching down and banking right. ThisI bought one and have no idea how it goes yet! The controller/charger wouldn't work so I can't fly it. The warranty is ridiculous as they wanted videos of it not working. They then wanted me to send it back with me paying the freight and supplying a tracking number. It would have cost me twice what I originally paid. I asked if I could buy another controller but got no reply. So I have is a new helicopter with spares that has never left the ground. In a stupid logic I ordered another one and will hopefully end up with one working and one for. spares......BIEN MAI BARRE BELL FRAGILEthis heli is pretty good flies pretty well
but i do have a some problems trying to get the trim
it seems like every time i fly it, i have to adjust the trim again ~_~;;
and the top propeller breaks very easily, so i suggest you get a few extra ones =]Excelente helicoptero, vuela muy bien en indoor y tambien outdoor con vientos normales, recomendable para aprender. gracias a este heli pude pasar a un 450 sin el uso de simuladores.Not a bad product, but for several months that has no stock of replacement parts. I do not recommend buying this product!Accuracy and flight feel is quite poor, quality is average, durability is the strongest i've ever seen, price is cheapest ive seen. In conlcusion get it, it helps begginners to develop the reflexes. for $60 you can get the hk 136 and hk 190. learn with hk136 co-axial then have fun with hk190.Great heli as far as stability and ease of use. The Nanotech 160mah 1S batteries last about 6 minutes without pushing the envelope.
The only con is that the parts are on backorder for a very long time so I would advise you to purchase extra blades at the very least when they come in. That is the only part that broke on mine and that was pilot error. I would compare it to an MSR in flight. Its not better, but close to an MSR. PLUS, you can buy 3 of these for the price of one MSR.
Outside flight has to be at 0KMH wind. But it will move when conditions are right. A large gym is perfect.Bought some 130mAh batteries with my HK190 and they are absolutely useless. Charged them with the USB charger and they puffed up a little. The charge light do not go completely out either. Tried to run the chopper on them after charging but they did not hold a charge. I may give the 160mAh a try and see if they are any better.
