From what cave did you just come out of? How did you learn to fly helicopters? You mean to tell me that nobody that flies with you or on the field that you go to has told you the proper tools to use with helicopters?

Do some homework and get yourself a head tach. Or borrow one from a flying buddy.

Man could you be more mean to a guy for asking a question. Will, you can get a couple different kinds. Some mount to the heli and some require a person standing with you to look through a window to get the head speed. I have a 30 and haven't used anything to get the headspeed. You can tell kinda tell by ear, but its not accurate. I had a bunch of people help me out so I have an idea of what it is suppose to sound like. I did use a friends minature one for my Voyager.

get a head tach. could not do without one. it flying easier with the correct head rpm. find a good one at helizpro.com they are aroung $90.00 but they do take two people to use. one to flt the heli and the other the use the tach. it is real simple to use. when you look thru the viewfinder the blades will come to stop when you adjust the up and down buttons and this gives tou your headspeedrpm
also go to raptortechnique.com for all your set-ups. he can help with any question you need. this web site is a dictionary for all raptors
