fly and removes
Be not deceived by a lovely type of such helicopters. It not a toy for kids, not last preparatory occupations. Whether the joke, not at each adult of iSpy Helicopter will worry the 1st 30 seconds after the flight beginning. Whimsical and very exacting, this "radio-controlled" helicopter has no control panel. Zamesto it you will use own iPhone or iPad.
iSpy Helicopter — is completely standard radio-controlled helicopter made on the basis of very popular design of the case of half-open type. It assumes that the main elements are open on a public inspection: multi-colored conductings, mechanics of blades, payment of reception and signal processing … Only the lower part, that is the block of the small chamber "is more or less packed". It looks everything unattractively nearby, but is completely normal during flight and the more in the correct criteria of operation — on open space and the freshest air.
To remove the brisk helicopter in size with the television panel and at once to try to operate it — a full tin.
Preparation for a departure
I with pleasure would remove process of unpacking of the helicopter. But, thanks to efforts of mail of EMS, the box from it lost a trade dress. Taking in attention that before departure zealous Chinese packed it in three (!) layers of an air and bubbly film, efforts of delivery services can marvel only. However, everything that was снутри, did not suffer in any way and voobshchy was not touched. I note it separately and beforehand that you planned the order to somebody as a gift more carefully.
Snutri lay, as it is surprising, the helicopter and its additional spare parts — one top and one bottom blade, also two managing directors of the screw. Besides, Chinese showed a bit of generosity on the paper summary and the neotklonimy transmitter of a signal. For this model in a set MicroSD memory card also is put on 512 Mb and a charm-kardrider with USB port. And yes, still there is a charging cable for the transmitter and the helicopter. Like forgot nothing.
Acquaintance to new things is recommended to be begun with the summary. In this case it is the terrible booklet in the British and Chinese languages. Do not understand British? Do not worry, as it to you would not change anything. The producer knows British even more awfully you and by drawing up of the summary Translate Google from Chinese used in the best case. I will try to explain all the words.
The descent after unpacking should uncover a cable of a charging and to connect it to computer port. the 2nd end is inserted into the lateral panel of the helicopter. Check that it is switched off, having verified with the small On/Off toggle-switch on the case. Time of a full charging from "zero" — about an hour. To find out about its termination it is possible, having looked at the USB tip: it will flare reddish color. Then do the same with the transmitter.
The transmitter — is the block with 3 infra-red lamps and the battery which is connected via the socket of earphones in iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Specifically it transmits management signals from the device to the helicopter. Do not lose it, on another the sense in "toy" will not be.
While all this stood on a charging, I got into the summary to find, what appendix should be downloaded for management of helicopter. Its names there were not. It was necessary to include logic and to find in App Store the phrase of WL Toys [iTunes link]. From 2 similar appendices with my helicopter one worked only.
These toys are on sale by hundred parts of the different companies, but really create them only steam 10-ov. In variations and updatings it is not so difficult to get confused: it as the market of the Chinese phones and phones in what will not promote even 100 гр. In this case the transmitter is made by the WL Toys company, but I cannot warrant for the helicopter any more: on it there are no real identification symbols. That, but is more ordinary and without the chamber, is in the range of the Griffin company.
We fill "cones"
The appendix is loaded, the helicopter and the transmitter are absolutely charged. Now it is necessary to find as much as possible spacious place, in particular if it is the 1st experience. The street comes to reason to a descent. It is the most ideal option. But if on that party of a window the strong wind or rain/snow, is better to try houses.
In four walls you need a room with an empty seat in width not less than 4 meters and ceilings not less than 2. And it is better even more. The spacious hall with a furniture minimum in the center perfectly will approach. And very badly pyshnovaty chandeliers approach — it is voobshchy "murderers" of imprudent pilots. Other unsafe subjects — florets, vertical hangers, vases, fans, curtains. Sounds terribly, but in fact everything is not so bad. The less "difficult" subjects in a room, the from flights you receive more pleasure and the less chances that it will come to the end is pitiable.
We move the toggle-switch by the helicopter in the situation ON and we admire a disco 10 multi-colored light-emitting diodes. By all means кладём the helicopter on the most spacious place in the house or on the street. We insert the transmitter into a nest in phone or a tablet, and then we start that application. In the list we choose iSpy Helicopter and we get on the main screen of management. He is very best of all for learning by heart, also to understand to the touch where what button is:
We choose a mode
of frequency of "B", we change the toggle-switch in the appendix for «On» and very much, it is very sluggish we lift draft. Blades will twirl, and here and there on the first quarter the helicopter already should rise in air. Most likely, it will make it together with movement in any sudden party. Try it to level by means of the joystick.
Do not worry and on anything do not distract. If suddenly "fly" in a room and feel that lose control, плавненько reduce draft or absolutely it stop, if to the floor/the earth already nearby. Better тормознуть and to begin a ponovy room from the center, than to bombard walls and regiments plastic blades.
The scheme of management is not calculated in the beginning by this helicopter on aerobatics. One two-dimensional and screen joystick answers both for an inclination, and for turn. Without blows to manage it is unreal. But it is not terrible.
The helicopter can seem weak, but after the first blows start to respect that Chinese who once invented his design. I can tell surely that in two days of flights indoors, it fought and fell at me more than 100 times. While all on a place. Anywhere it does not tilt, unless from air streams in the apartment. And if at equal take-off it starts to twist somewhere — do not panic and press an arrow in the opposite direction at the very bottom of the control panel. It will be leveled.
The integrated chamber onboard the helicopter has permission in 0.3 megapixels. Naturally, it is absolutely frivolous: so, pair of photos on a trick to make and soap кинцо to remove. Besides the image from the chamber is not transferred in an aaplet on iPhone or iPad, and remains on a memory card, I will corrode for which is in a back part of the helicopter.
Take out and stick this card very carefully: the helicopter is calculated on quick and sharp blows, but not on directed use of energies. Quality drawings is more awful, than from the refrigerator or a toaster. Though if to start the helicopter on open space, it is possible to receive very good shots on scope during video shooting. Only look, that it far did not depart: the dalnoboynost at the transmitter leaves to long for the best. Well and main thing: all flies about 12-15 minutes after that it is necessary to put on a charging. Do not forget to suspend record of video before, than it will be discharged. On another can not be reproduced.
Over and over again, the brain starts to get used to behavior of the helicopter. To operate it becomes it is perceptible easier. Here now, for example, I is successful пропархал through all rooms of the apartment and voobshchy touched nothing. But the model of management — one joystick, without an inclination sideways — imposes restrictions which you do not notice in the 1st 10 flights. Maneuverability and responsiveness at this model not from the reference. A virtual crosspiece too not from the best. Well and voobshchy, at any deal, such toys are intended for management by means of very advanced virtual joysticks or real panels with mechanical keys.
Departure I resolve
To watch from outside iSpy Helicopter even it is more fascinating — it is not necessary to worry neither about management, nor about povsevremenno changing streams of a wind. Kids from that toy will be in ecstasy. The main thing that operated it on the street, instead of at home. People around at the sight of the helicopter have associations with "flies" — because of specific hum of blades. It reminded me a roar from the vacuum cleaner. By the way, screws well drive air — as the desktop fan.
ISpy Helicopter helicopter cost — 70 dollars. Delivery to Russia, also to any other countries is carried out gratuitously. That to the general memoirs — before you quite good, strong, but the exacting ticket in the world of air radio-controlled models. And that who wishes something "abrupt", I can recommend Parrot AR.Drone.
