I did my first Death spiral today and it looked awsome! I went to the set up day at the http://www.internetflyin.com/ it was a little windy but she still flew like an unlaiden swallow. Any one with a heli in indiana should come. I was the only heli pilot there.

Was that a African swallow or a European Swallow? Good Job. They look great when the collective is right but if not they get a little ugly.

Were you using coconuts to do that death spiral?

ALL heli's can do a death spiral.
But all helis can do only one true death spiral

Rap 30, OS32, rotortech 550's (pricey but super great blades), mavrikk muffler, ksj 3d paddles (super pitchy but loads better than stock) and CP 15%. I have about one tank left of 15% then she will drink all 30%. I have 811's on cyclic and collective, S148 on throtle. I have a G500T w/9253 and JR tail blades (5mm longer than stock) on tail control. With the coconuts gripped by the husk, there is no issue with weight ratios. I love my unlaiden swallow!

Congratulations!

I did my first death spiral on Thursday. Did about 10 of them. Some were almost perfect, some not so perfect, and 1 nearly went tail into the ground because all of my recoveries were inverted.

FUN!!!!!!!!!

Is it really a death spiral if you recover from it?

The death spirals you don't recover from usually turn into the flaming dancing chicken of death manuver. Which at times can look even cooler. NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

Rock and Roll man!!!

Today was even better!!! I killed off the last of my 15% in about a tank and a 1/4. I used that to get some hover practice in and get my thumbs warmed up. I filled my first tank of CP30% at about 11:38 and fiered it over. Not much needle tweaking was needed and I was very, very happy with the power boost. Well... 6 tanks, 3 heart attacks, and 1 auto (only from about 20 ft, first ever). I called it a day after I half-a$$ hucked a semblance of a piro-flip (also first attempt ever). I love flying theese damn things!! I am learning real fast thanks to AFP. My philly is here so I'm gonna go eat now.

hi

what i do wrong?if i start a death spiral, the heli turns once or
max. twice around the elevator axis, then i have to stop or it will hit the ground.i start the manouver at 100 m ,too low ? krause starts it at
50 meters, and can do 4-5 flips and falls not very quick, like he uses a
little parachute in knife edge falling
my heli is a rappi 50 with ksj paddles(better then MA´s )
1800 upm and tt carbon blades.........


regards

The way I understand it... is that it is all in cyclic rate. I can only get around twice before having to pull out. I got in a triple today but I had to go way high. I think I am going to move the washout to the outer hole and see what happens.

The only point I see is the one on top of your head. If you comb your hair over and put on a hat maybe no one will notice.
