Nice Flipage

Thanks for posting your piro flip... I just figured out my new reflex xtr... I put a very nice raptor 90se from this website: http://www.rchelicopterweb.com/Simu.../Simulators.htm into my heli folder.. She flies wonderful and the program has some very, very nice graphics.. The helicopter has plenty of Metal bling bling on it also.. This reflex definitely has some characteristics to it that are close to the real helicopter and some that are not.. Overall I still feel g3 is better for practicing but I am still getting used to reflex and its been awhile since I have flown the real Heli... I tried to make a recording with fraps but the play back is really boggy with the reflex????

Yes, Fraps seems to do that. Try recording in half size and with no audio. That should help the problem a little.

Hi, here's mine.

Fraps doesn't work well and my camera isn't one of the best so the quality is a bit bad. Also some piro tictoc on the video. I'll put the reflex demo files to my gallery soon if you're interested.

Some flips with my R50

Been practising for about one and a half year. Now I can move the heli up, down, lef or right while piroflipping. Nose left and nose right.

Mine are better when I'm not recording and nobody is watching.

I can't get it to upload, I'll work on plan B.

How 'bout this (the heli looked a lot closer on my screen):

Watch at YouTube

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Consecutive stationary piro-flips or piroetting-flips is quite an art. That is my goal. Drifting around is not as impressive as Alan Szabo Jr's famous stationary piro-flips. With Alan you can focus on a horizon point and keep his spindle shaft visible. Impressive demonstration of superior deliberate control.

Thanks hindsight!

Since the video been taken I’ve improved my piroflips by taken them more stationary at a lower hight. I’m a little on the “high ground “ in my videos at YouTube. I also have increased my piro rate a bit. The key to do the “good ones” is to practice a lot. When you think you had practice a lot it’s just to do them twice as much ;-)

When I do piro-flips.... one revolution of the tail + one 360* cyclic stir = flip to inverted, and one more revolution of the tail + one more 360* cyclic stir = flip back to upright.
How do you get 2 revolutions of the tail to = flip to inverted, ...etc
Do you just make tiny stir circles?

Correct: smaller cyclic "stir" movements.

For performing a chaos I actually don’t see any connection between pirorate and fliprate. The best way to learn it is to keep both flip and piro in speed variation. Of course most people find a comfortable speed connection between them and perform a more sustained chaos in "the comfort zone”, as for my self.

100% correct Arild

The rudder controls the piro and cyclic controls the flip.. If you flip inverted you do whatever it takes with the cyclic to keep it flat.. (sometimes very tiny tiny circles focused around the center piont of the cyclic to maintain it flat. then you just dont do a big circle movement with the cyclic until you have had your fill with the rudder and the amount of piro's you like.. After that you can give foward elevator and begin the big circle again to pop the helicopter back to upright.. Then do the tiny tini circle to get it flat and piro until ready to flip again... Flip inverted with up elevator which is the starting point of the big circle.. How was that.. That is what i think about when i do these flips
