I have the Beluga 180 for a couple of weeks. Due to bad weather at the beginning I had him in the conservatory try (area 3 x 4 m - usable were perhaps 2 x 2 m). I must confess that I first tried it out as a 4-channel helicopter (at least one RC) and it took 2 battery charges until the first halfway reasonable hover was possible. One battery charge lasts definitely over 5 minutes, I have not yet reached 10 minutes - here it is worth m. E. After definitely to get a replacement battery. Meanwhile, I'm already out flew a few times with it. In light winds it is also possible, however, the helicopter comes quickly reach its limits - and the 'Stickhandling'wird course challenging. For durability, I must say that the helicopter, when he first crashed my times from one meter in an autorotation landing profile, the tail rotor lost here and this is canceled. That has now happened for the 2nd time and the tail rotor is now already 2 times glued with superglue again and there are no negative effects felt. I think it is an ideal introduction to the 4-channel mode. Trimming will also work quite well, the servo for the aileron control by setting the control rod and the trimming on the remote control at my HS already at the stop. But without control inputs and with no wind it can be trim in a hover. All in all I can recommend the HS. I have fun with it and you can order quite quickly breeze through the area.
