Hey,
Okay, not really having flown with many people i thought i'd ask this cuz most people call me kinda wierd when i mention i fly with my tail reversed...

Is this very uncommon?
I just found it easier one day and yeah...

Am i a wierd one

Tail in, Left is right and right is left...
Yet i still found nose in harder when starting lol *shrugs*.

Oh well, learnt to fly backwards towards me pretty well *grins*

A very common beginner mistake. Most look at and fly the nose, not the tail. We think as if we are sitting in the machine, where right rudder turns the nose right. Reverse the steering on your car, see how you do.

Tail reversed

If you get some one to set it up in flight for you,

Just make sure you tell them!!

If possible you would be a lot better off learning the right way?

hehe,
Nah, i'v asked if a few ppl wanted to try flying her and mentioned the reversed tail
But its at the point where i'm just going with it, been flying like this for over a year now and am to scared to try to re-train myself
Am at the point i'm playing with inverted, and also chaos on the sim

At least i know if sum1 nicks the heli, if the next person trys to fly her "as is" they'll get a supprise

Wow, that's too bad. You should probably remove the gyro, too.

Rudder rev or Aile in put rev???
Tail in
If your tail turns to the left as you give right rudder thats the norm.

Now if you give Right Aile the heli leans to the right. thats the norm.

done it once on my very first flight. Because of the different perspective i got confused on which way it "should" be, so i just went with the flow, managed to do it without crashing it mind you. Since then i set it the right way (well right way to us)

If you feel more comfortable flying tail reversed then go for it, Its justl iek some people like controlling RC Cars with the steering reversed

Now, that just sounds DUMB to me. What on earth would be the point of that?

In my opinion.....and there are a lot of these on here......I think you will limit yourself if you learn to "fly the tail" instead of the nose of the heli. If for no other reason, it would be pretty darn hard to find anyone near by with skill that runs the same setup. Also, it seems that you will be handicapping yourself for the get go because of the way manuvers flow, and the stick movement associated with it.

I learned, and can fly without a gyro, but I don't think I want to if I don't have to. Also, on the learning something new aspect, I always used rate gyros cause it's what I had available. I didn't like hh when I tried to use it the first couple of times, but made myself start flying the nose through turns while in ff, which is something that you didn't have to really do with rate gyros. I found that there are many manuvers possible now, that aren't that easily "do-able" without hh. I wouldn't fly without it enabled now.......doesn't mean that I can't, but I would really be limiting myself. To each their own though.......I don't fly mode 1 or with the collective "reversed" on my tx, although it is done quite regularly in Europe. Best of luck to you, and most of all have fun.

I have a friend that, altrhrough he uses his car in normal mode when going away from him, when he goes back towards himself, unless he reverses his steering, he can never get the steering the right way around. Reversing his steering fixes this. Whatever floats his boat i suppose
