Skill Level 3 – Experience Required

Skill Level 3 aircraft, like this one, are suitable for RC pilots who already have some experience with and the skills to assemble, set up and fly similar class models. And although this is one of the easiest-to-assemble helicopter kits, which makes it a perfect first-ever kit-built model for many pilots, you should have the experience and skills necessary to successfully set up and fly other helicopter models like the Blade 330 and Fusion 360 before attempting to fly the Fusion 550.
