These have been discussed here before - there are advocates, users and sceptics. I count myself in the latter camp. I really can't see the value - it seems to handicap the learning process to me.

it comes with bigfoot wheels for grass. castors for tarmac. although for the roads in the UK we need tank tracks on there.

Hi Stu....saw one of these at the Expo earlier this year.....it weighs a lot more than it looks ..in fact if I remember all it allowed was for the heli to skid about the floor...very exciting..yuk! Sort of second round of thanks for your info on the Rappy SE sent to Steve G...most of it has been used on my machine.... Afraid my Milli 2 and 3 will be going up for sale.

i think there should be a poll on this. how many people can stu convince to get a rappy 90 SE. i'm losing count now. lol

i've to sell my pmax's and everyone else the furys. although the reason for selling those is not a flying one. wink wink. lol

btw 1920 on the head is an estimate. it sounds like 3020. it's not got the gv1 in it yet. but that will be soon. thats all it needs. it doesn't half go mind you.

cheers

Because the wife would have a fit when I forgot to replace it. Bad enough when I don't fold it down.

I saw one in use earlier this year - being demo'ed by the company that produced it.

It was quite scary to watch - it was being flown on tarmac but as people rightly question, what if you're flying on grass.

The idea of the legs sticking up is that the heli can 'float' up and down and you can get a basic feel for aileron/elevator controls without the risk of the thing taking off - although shove in a 50 size and you'll probably get the thing airbourne. Imagine being a newbie getting one of these things and having the gyro reversed, you'd never stop the thing from spinning round..

And the safer option for the newbie with the reversed gyro is????

When he can shut the throttle and stop the spinning to cure the problem without a crash????

I think its very smart and original in its own way.

I consider it as Training Gear Professional version ... ^^
And don't be too ridiculus guys, why would you use this thing on grass?
Try finding a nice little hard surface to practice on.

To bad you can't practice hovering inverted on this thing.
That would be a real seller!

IT would probably be a help to someone who is nervous and has no local help. not a bad idea imho, tho it is a bit worrying to think that it could be used in a small space, I hope the sellers point out the fact that it could quite quickly cover some considerable distance (lacerated legs come to mind)

I really think that the advent of the simulator has pretty well done away with the training gear setup all together, from what I have seen.

I came, I saw, I hovered

I agree. After playing on the sim for two years, I was off & running my first day....used $6 worth of dowels & wiffle balls for set-up, and they were gone after three tanks of fuel. Boy, would I have been pi$$ed if I had spent money on something like that!!!!!

At least the dowels/balls allow you to fly around, and may save you from a tip-over if you "chopstick" it during a panic in transition. This thing keeps you kinda pinned to terra-firma.

Flying a heli is like seeing the Matrix, it is a mind bending experience.

What happens if the wheels hit a small pebble or even a small crack in the ground, will it tip over? Is it filled with lead to ensure you cant take off?
