Hello everyone, I have been lurking for a few days reading up on all the fun stuff everyone is doing. I want to get into this hobby and have some questions. First my background is in electronics and have excellent mechanical skills as well so this stuff is right up my alley so to speak. I have been an RC plane flyer years ago until all my planes were stolen from my garage. Then I started into RC helicopters which I currently own. I have a 450 and a 600 but don't fly much as I am not a great pilot. I can hover and do some slow maneuvers but no fast forward flight. I want to get into multicopters and have a few questions since I have never flown one. How does it compare to a standard helicopter in terms of ease of flight? I read that multicopters are easier to fly is this true?? My helicopters are just collecting dust for the most part so I am considering selling them to fund my new adventure.
Next I have a Spectrum DX7 the first model of the DX7 not the s version. Will this radio be sufficient to fly these multicoptors? My goal is to learn to fly and do video and photography and that is another hobby of mine so combining the flight and photography is very appealing to me. I have been looking at the Y6 as a platform to use and am impressed with what I have seen so far.
I am sure more questions will come up but these are what is on my mind for now.
