KDS 450QS is worth every penny,November 14, 2012
By Jeff Coast
The KDS 450QS is a great heli for novice pilots. This heli flew well right out of the box without any tweaking. I did balance the blades which were slightly out of balance and the tracking was off a little, but all the screws were tight and trims were set quite nicely. This heli is very stable and handles well for a novice pilot. It is a little quick with the dual rates set to high so I would sugggest that you set them to low for the first few flights. I am amazed at the quality of the radio for the price, I really didn't expect much but so far I haven't found any reason to upgrade. I have about 60 flights to date and the only failure i've had was a servo that lost an internal connection. Great bird for the money.

Broken on Unboxing,December 4, 2012
By Cameron
Item arrived assembled incorrectly and with an inoperable servo. Swash plate guide was out of slot. Because I would have to re-box and pay for freight to have this corrected I just ordered the parts needed to repair it myself. Due to the reviews I have seen on this item I would like to think that this is an isolated incident.

Great Helicopter,January 30, 2013
By Stanley Winchester
This is a great helicopter for the price. The KDS-450QS flew great out of the box. The quality is good. The servos need to be replaced with metal gears.I Highly recommend this helicopter for the price. The transmitter is very easy to set up. It really comes set up from the suppler. I flew the KDS-450QS with very little adjustments.

KDS 450 QS 6 channel heli,June 7, 2013
By Whitepath
After many months of research on various message boards, forums and youtube videos I decided to give the KDS 450 QS a try. I also did many hours of research before deciding who to order from. If you are considering this heli, ThinkRC is absolutely First Class. Robert in tech support answered my questions quickly and courteously weeks before I even placed my order and has been of great help after my first minor crash.
This is a Great heli but do not buy this or any 450 size heli if you have no experience and or no help. These are extremely complex machines that can be quite frustrating. I am in the "no hands on help" category myself. I have flown, crashed and completely rebuilt several times a Blade CP and CP pro. I have countless hours on the Real Flight simulator.
When I received my 450 QS I found that the canopy needed trimming a bit to fit properly. It was difficult to install and contacted the main gear as well. This was a minor thing to fix but if overlooked could have caused more serious problems. I installed training gear and spooled up carefully. There was no vibration and the blades were in track. A gentle liftoff into hover showed the heli to be in trim. A test of the idle up switch was done by going to about half throttle but remaining on the ground, just light on the skids. I found that the heli was going "negative" a bit, trying to push itself into the ground. Had I flipped the idle up switch in the air at 5 feet or so I very well may have hit the ground before being able to react with throttle to overcome the sudden drop. I have a good enough understanding of the idle up from many more hours of reading online to be able to adjust (very slightly) my throttle and pitch curves so that hitting the idle up resulted in a smooth, no jumps up or down, transition from normal to idle up. This type of thing requires knowledge, experience, or help. If you have neither, leave CP helis alone. I proceeded on to fly some right and left circles and figure eights both in normal mode and in idle up mode. I was totally in love with this heli! It flies so much better than the smaller Blade CP. Then came my Oops moment.
My wife had not seen the heli fly so we went to a field near Shell Point Beach. The wind was gusting and I should have gone home. Wanting my wife to see the heli airborne I decided to go for it. I was doing well considering the conditions but the gusts were getting worse. I made one low and slow circle out in front of me and for a split second lost orientation. The result was contact with the ground in an unlevel attitude. Broken blades, bent tail boom, bent mainshaft and one stripped servo along with a couple other small parts broken. A 50+ dollar mistake! Not the helis fault in any way. My parts are on order and I'm ready to repair and try again, but only in totally calm conditions.
If you're ready for a CP heli this is a nice one that I think for the money can't be beat. Best of luck to all who give this sport a try. Many try, few succeed.

Not for Beginners,February 28, 2014
By Gene parsons
The helicopter is great but it is definitely not for beginners. I ran A 6 channel before just a couple times and it was years ago and I bought this one thinking that I could just fly right away. OMG lol alright, I got it in the air and I wasn't used to it so it was flying backwards and upside down as it crashed into the pavement. The nice thing is the parts are inexpensive. I'm going to find someone that can train me on it before I fix all of it. But as I said, it's a great helicopter.

KDS 450 QS,August 22, 2013
By Jake
How can anybody pass up a deal like this! $229 for a RTF heli, radio and battery because I couldn't. Best $229 bucks I've spent and fast shipping too. Pulled it out of the box and charged up the battery and got over 60 flights in the past month. Being a noobie I bought a few extra parts for that special day but so far it's been minor stuff. Just a few bucks for replacement parts to keep her flying after hitting a few things.

Good but not pefect,July 31, 2013
By Helibilly
Let me start by saying yes this is a good buy for the price. The design is not perfect. I come from the days of the old Hirobo helis and these new KDS helis are great machines but...the plastic rotor and tail gear are not the ticket. The stress that is put on components is too much for what this heli is capable of. I have owned this for about a month and have burned out servos,cracked rotor blades for no reason, had the tail rotor fly apart on me. Smacked rotor blades into tail boom. luckily I was just touching down. Rotor blades never stay in track. I would replace all the servos with better ones This is not a step up from 4 channel machines. You have to have some serious CP experience to fly this machine. I am going to retro fit this with the KDS Flymentor and lighten up on the heavy handling. I will probably fit this with a body also. I will keep this around for casual flying..The radio is GREAT!! Don't forget to buy spare rotor blades, servos, tail boom and belt.

skyraptore,July 17, 2013
By Junior Baptiste
Well I have been purchasing helicopters for a while now and this helicopter is one of the best 450 3D RC I presently have, and my others cost a little more than this one, I love the hard plastic structure/frame, the electronics is very well installed and compact. I did not expect this level of workmanship, I really feel that this is my moneys worth.

I have only tested it to this point inside to hover. I have not gone to the park yet and when I do, I will let you know of the stability and functionality of this sweet helicopter. I tend to worry about when a product is marketed it usually has flaws to be worked out. At this point I cant find anything to fix so far it came ready to fly and that it was out of the box.

Thanks KDS from Junior Baptiste _Skyraptore

More documentation needed,March 4, 2013
By Ben F
Facing my first venture into 6-channel flying, I can't judge the quality of the machine itself - it seems really solid. I can tell you that there is not enough information in the printed or CD-based material for a novice to figure out how to operate the unit. I paired it successfully, but have no idea how to fly it. My suspicion is that once I learn, the unit will perform fine.
