The Ares Advantage Optim 300 CP is the first RC helicopter in its size and class to assist pilots looking to progress from sport flying to 3D. The Aegis Natural Flight Progression (NFP) technology in the Optim 300 CP combines a state-of-the-art 6-axis sensor system with groundbreaking control software to create a RC heli training tool unlike any other. If youíre new to CP flight, your first step is to fly using the advanced 6-axis Flight Stabilization System (FSS) that allows you to fly basic sport maneuvers. All you have to do if you happen to get into trouble is let go of the sticks and the 300 CP will right itself and assist you in avoiding any potential crashes. When you're ready to test your skills with 3D flight, the flip of a switch puts you in 3-axis agility mode. Pair this with the high-performance capabilities of the 300 CP heli, and you will be able to execute just about any 3D flight maneuver you can imagine. Better yet, if you lose control, flipping the switch back to the 6-axis Flight Stabilization System (FSS) automatically stabilizes the heli and helps you regain control and avoid a crash!

Learning to fly inverted is the first big step to 3D flight and the Optim 300 CP makes taking the step to inverted flight easier than ever. The transmitter features a switch that, when turned on while in 6-axis FSS mode, automatically flips the Optim to stable inverted flight. While in stable inverted flight, you can familiarize yourself with how the heli responds differently to your controls with the assurance of knowing that all you need to do if you lose control is let go of the sticks and the Natural Flight Progression (NFP) technology assists you in going back to a stable inverted hover. And when you want to return to flying right side up again, itís as easy as another flip of the switch!

Ares Optim 300 CP Collective Pitch Helicopter RTF
I am a beginner to rc helis with a lot of simulator experience...I am fairly comfortable with all types of helis on the sim and am ready to make an rc heli purchase.....this heli looks like just what I have been looking for...it's reasonably priced, it's a rtf model , and it's not too small of a size and it has a built in stabilization mode......I have noticed with the sim , the smaller sized helis are actually much harder to fly...I don't know much about the Ares brand but will do some research and if it gets halfway decent grades, I will definitely get one....thanks Hobby Town....)

Ares Optim 300 CP Collective Pitch Helicopter RTF
this is worth the money spent as long as you set it up in beginner mode first up with low rates and high stability mode.I have heard that some people do not like the way the helicopter is trimmed but how many people actually trim their helis whilst their flying them. trimming is a simple matter of landing it and pressing the button used for binding until it flashes at slow rate which allows you to set left right cyclic by pushing stick left or right and watching how many lights are on on the figure 8. When happy with it move on by holding button down for about 2 secs then do elevator cyclic with the light flashes twice. I use to fly an old ergo 30 in the late 90's and does this heli help your confidence no end! They have come a long way, indeed. Nearly forgot to say always power up helicopter as level as possible to centralise fbl unit and you will enjoy , for sure)

I bought this heli not knowing to much about them and it was fairly easy to fly if you know what I mean and a lot of people do.I started out a little rough with some learning issues but seemed to iron them out.I did have a panic situation that caused me to as they say freak out and while I was freaking out the heli got further away it was not in control.I lost the $350 heli that was 75% my own fault.Other than stupidity it was a nice helicopter.)
