There are four basic types of R/C helicopters:
Single rotor helicopters with fewer than four channels
Coaxial helicopters with two to four channels
Multirotor helicopters with four channels
Single rotor helicopters with four or more channels
This category includes helicopters such as the Nikko Skywatcher.
You cannot learn to hover properly on this type of helicopter, because it lacks the fore/aft cyclic control. Also, the forward flight skills you learn on this helicopter will not transfer over to other types of helicopters because you will not learn proper tail control.
