Hover two helicopters at once with one transmitter
- Independently hover or fly a basic circuit of two helis
- No 3-D

Tx Setup:
right cyclic: becomes heli1's cyclic
right slider1: pitch for Heli1
Right slider2: yaw for heli1. 12Z owners probably will need a switch to blip left\right yaw

Left cyclic: becomes heli2's cyclic. May need to spring load this.
Left slider1: pitch for heli2
Left slider2: yaw for heli2. Again 12Z owners probably will need a switch to blip left\right yaw

Andy,

You have been cooped up too long. Get out and breath the fresh air. Vista is Gold, so you shouldn't have any work to do. Go down and fly the rust and corrosion out of your helis.

Let me know when you are going down, I will throw a heli in the car and meet you at Marymoore. If you are really going to try to fly two at once, let me know, I will go buy a new video recorder to memorialize the event.

How about writing with 2 hands at the same time. Left hand "Helicopter" and Right hand "Hovering".

How would you get past having 2 helis on the same channel at the same time?

There's no confict there -- 1 tx could talk to any number of rx's simultaneously.

Good luck!

The hardest part will be to decide which heli you will have
to loose (and crash) after about 30 sec or so...........

Interesting experiment, be sure to get it on video!!!!

You could have one heli on channel 1-6 and the other on 7-12.

Big planks have 2 receivers, all of the servos on one side of the plane are hooked up to a receiver. Same goes for the other side.

I've thought of this idea before. Be easier if the rudder gimbals are on the sticks like Curtis. As for collective, just pull the stick up & down. Using sliders is too confusing!

Be a good idea to have co-pilots on the helis - the stability gizmo thingy. Or even full auto-pilot if you get in trouble!

you'd need two helis with identical trim characteristics and CGs, as well as identical weather conditions.. so if a breeze catches one differently than the other, you're all discombobulated... interesting concept tho... who knows, maybe it's possible?

More like 3 seconds!
That would be like playing two different video games. Just after hitting the start button everything will go SnaFu!

And this is assuming both helis are 'identically trimmed' and, 'wind' factor affecting the helis identically.

I'd say you've got a great chance. Please do it and post your video .

or you could just set up two helis completely identical, each with the appropriate channels.....then try to tandem fly them, knowing that each input to correct a condition in one will cause a condition in the other...with minimal stick inputs, you might be able to get this to work for 2 or 5 seconds.

BETTER YET....

lets get Cranet to set up all of his 100+ heli's with rx's on the same channel....

Do a power liftoff of all of them at the same time (i'm talking slam the collective up).....that would be sweet.

complete and total disaster...

Why not fly one heli with your feet and one with your hands.

This almost as bad as shooting down a machine with a 50cal.
One Tx,one machine and play hot potato with the Tx with a group of fliers.

I think I would rather see a heli pylon race. Keep it simple. Two pylons lets say 75 yards apart, max Alt...25',ten laps or the one still flying wins!
