HelicopterMain Discussion › Ornith: how much can it take?

I just bought my first heli, after about 17 years of fixed wings. The heli is a completely stock Ornith (except for a Zimmerman muffler).
I haven't flown it yet though.

On the sim I have made quite a bit of progress after about 30 hours. Basic aerobatics are no longer a problem: rolls, loops, flips, inverted and backwards flying seem to go really well. I still make the occasional bad call when flying backwards while inverted though.
I am sure it is just a matter of "unlearning" the fixed wing reflexes... that's the hard part.

Now, the problem is, how much of this can the Ornith take without breaking apart?
If I slap on some carbon blades, will that be enough for the basic stuff?
What else do I need for a little more action? I think I read on here somewhere that the JR Venture and JR Voyager also are fit for donating some parts.

I don't plan on going all the way with this thing though (when it comes to upgrades that is).
The Compass Knight 50 will probably be my next one, since it is much better equipped stock.

So what can I do to liven this thing up a bit!?

Get some carbon blades, lighter 3D paddles, and some more cyclic throw and your will be in business maybe increase the headspeed too.

Ornith?
Question is how much can you take when you realize it is the real thing?
You can't just hit the reset button after a crash and **** happens really fast on the real thing.
Take it slow and easy at first or you will be doin the Dirt Dance a lot til you get the hang of it.
Good Luck.

I know, I know...

I will take it nice and easy, and get some experienced help for the first flights.

But I know there will be a moment when I want to try something other than just floating around... and I'd hate the thing to fly apart mid air because of that on the first try. I absolutely hate it when that happens... I wouldn't even mind so much if I dumb thumb it, because I know it was my fault.

agreed the sim is much different than in real life (number one being that the sim helis are always set up right) so please take your time and you will want a stable platform anyway to learn so you might want to keep it stock for a while.

Ornith is a nice heli, you can learn a lon with this heli, and as well with some minor mods you will have great 3D heli.
