Flyboy, I must congratulate you on this. I will admit that I don't like the cocky attitude that you put out in your posts, but I respect you for what you have accomplished at such a young age. Good luck and god bless.

Searlerman...LOL (when the IP got out and my stick-buddy came up front in the left seat, the first thing he said was "you do know what your doing- right?" I just smiled and said "before take-off by the book please"

What do you do when you solo a heli? I don't know any heli pilots. With the full scales you just do your 3 touch and goes and call it a day.

You've got to have egos to fly the 'real' stuff, the big boys. Can't be a puss. Egos do not mean they will neglect safety. These guys didn't get where they are being irresponsible. This is a toy rc heli forum so the big boys could come across as egotistical. Who cares, I've still got a lot of respect for them regardless. I've met quite a few humble pilots as well. Bottom line, skill sets matter in the air, not the personal sh#t!

A BIG CONGRATS Flyboy55!!!!

Whats it like flying a full scale, would someone who can fly an rc heli be able to pilot a real one in an emergency?

If you're untrained on full-scale, then the answer would be "NO!"

well...

look at it this way...( in NO way am I about to "brag" these are cold hard facts)

I was able to hover the helicopter (well) with-in the first 10-15 min...there are people in my class that STILL can NOT hold a stationary hover ( and that's flying every-day for the past 2 Weeks)
I was the first to hover...and solo.

Yes R/C helped me ALOT...in that- understanding "a little goes a LONG way"...and knowing that you have to make the corrective input before it ever even happens.

However...the fact that our models have clockwise rotation, and that the "real" ones have Counter-clockwise (most of em)....REALLY made me have to re-think my instinctive actions...

such as...your used to having to give Right-T/R with Torque increase right? well now it's LEFT T/R.....translating tendancy...etc...etc

and the list goes on and on...

I would make the gamble that a GOOD R/C 3D pilot COULD get a TH-67 (bell 206) back on the ground in one piece, given a good 30 min of just flying it around.

it really is all pretty similar.

rc will help you learn to hover a fullsize faster, and it gives you a better understanding of how a helicopter works. but you still can't just hop in a fullsize and go fly. you would last about 5 seconds, and then they would be picking up helicopter pieces.

Also.... hovering is not the hardest part of flying a helicopter, it just takes a while to "click" sometimes.
