[quote]As for the comfort zone, I can assure you that I am rarely comfortable when I'm flying. If I ever get comfortable, I move on.

I agree, well said, and I'm doing the same as I'm pursuing nose in as part of my flying routine.

As for flying goals, as I mentioned, I'm not on track to be a sport or 3D guy. In fact, I'm not even doing any sport or 3D stuff on the sim. I'm focusing on the goal at hand.

Now that I think about it, where I fly on the boardwalk,

it would be irresponsible for me to attempt ANYTHING risky even if I wanted to.

Oh well, At least I'm enjoying this MY WAY.

Ok Doug here is the full story and correct this time ...

I took the Rex out flying. Ran all 4 packs through it. Mostly I just did 20-30 foot off the ground stuff. I am not super comfortable with high stuff and so I am working on it. Today I did a bunch of nose-in hovering about 20ft in front of me and 30-40ft up. I had a nice white cloudy background, so I couldn't see any color on anything but I just flew the outline and it wasn't too hard. Everything went really well, so on the last pack I just got more crazy. I did a few partially negative collective drops and caught them about 6-10ft off the ground. That got me even more crazy feeling so I brought it in for a hover about 6ft in front of me and eye level. I gave it some forward and dug hard into the throttle. Once it was about 30ft up, I pulled back hard on the elevator and throttle. It came over but slower than I expected. Then I dipped into negative throttle but not enough. So I dug more and then more. I underestimated just how far I had to pull the stick back but finally got enough. Then it was in a rough inverted hover. I actually leveled it out inverted for about half a second before pulling full back on the throttle and then the elevator. It came over again, again slower than I thought, and soon it was heading for the ground. I went to full positive throttle and it cleared the ground about 10ft feet up. I was totally fine until I got it stable in a hover, then my hands were shaking so bad I about wrecked it trying to get it on the ground.

Anyhow there it is Doug, my first back flip.

I'm not saying you should be further along than you are right now !! For real TJ. But really -- I am still flying the POS Blade cp pro and flipping it and funnels and low to the ground inverted and EVERYONE on this forum is talkin bout the BEST 450 out there BEST servo's Best GYRO YEAH Baby ----- WOW -------- My heli is so well equipted --- I don't want to take any chances !! I MIGHT CRASH !!! So let's just hover around !!!! Let's fly scale !! Is the convenient excuse for --- I'm ascared !!!! ( and you thought you were an instigator TJ
Hopefully, I'll be able to do a backflip or two and some inverted hovering by the end of the summer. I'll admit that I take my sweet-assed time learning things. Heck, I flew an FP heli for over a year before I got my first CP heli in the air.

While Dougie is doing some trash talking, I'll add a little trash talking myself. Dougie is wanting to see some basic 3D maneuvers; however, I think some of you with those 450 helis with the best servos, best gyro, best blades and metal head parts need to demonstrate that you have full control of your heli in all of the upright hovering and FF orientations. What good is it to have the best of this and that but can't demonstrate basic flight? Many are also always searching for the magic bullet for the perfrect tail setup. I hear many excuses such as, "I need the upgraded belt and pulley" or "I need a digital tail servo with the GY401 gyro." The bottom like on tail control is your flying skills and nothing less. Heck, there are a couple of guys in this E-sky forum that have demonstrated quite a bit of tail control with motorized tail helis (not to be bragging but I'm talking about Dougie and myself .).

I also challenge some of you 450 pilots to perform some good fast circuits and fast figure 8s in both directions. Go to a large field and open it up a little! I challenge you 450 pilots to fly in some wind! If I can fly my FP helis in the wind, can't you do the same with your MUCH more stable 450 helis? I guess what I'm saying is that I expect you pilots to at least demonstrate that your blinged 450 helis can perform some upright maneuvers as well as my FP helis. I'll be waiting for your videos. I don't have to name names. You know who you are . Come on...surely your 450 helis can do this:

Talking all of that smack was alot of fun. Hopefully, I didn't offend anyone. Just having a little fun!

Doug,
I dont desire to do that stuff. Think what you want to about what i just said but really i dont. I move at the pace my wallet can handle. Doesnt do me any good to smash it and not be able to repair it. Then i have nothing to fly. Im having fun doing my crazy eights and nose in so leave me alone if i dont measure up to your standards. The only standards i need to meet are mine and i happen to think im doing just fine.

And one more thing. What did you do with the real Doug. The Doug i knew 30,000 posts ago helped all the beginners, not try to get them to break there helis trying a new maneuver they are not ready for. Yeah sometimes we all need a kick in the pants but let the guy or gal decide when thats gonna be.

Will the real Dougie please stand up?

Well, its coming. But I'm not in a hurry. I've been flying the HBK2 alot lately and still feel like there's a lot I can learn from it. Every flight is an education. I'm enjoying it more with each flight and feel like I have more work to do with it before moving on.

Racin,
I also fly the fp that you speak of with a rate gyro and have proven it over and over. But i must be truthful to my bretheren out there. The fp is a breeze compared to a cp. Although i can do it on both helis and have. I just need more space with the 450.

I'm so broke if I bust 2 blades (I have one good spare) I'll be down for 2 weeks. I'm just getting re-comfortable with nose-in at 30' out/30' up. circles are coming.

Inverted? Loop? No, don't think so; not yet. I am itching to try though, and I promise I will, on video, before the summer is over. I'm not specifying which summer...

I have already tried a couple of times to do a loop Dougie Boy. You saw in my last couple of vids I was going all out at the nighbors house and then pulling up. From there I have gone up and over, but habe been bailing out too quick. I for one can prove without any doubt that I keep trying to push the envelope of what I can do, just call helidirect and jags and give them my name, Scott Burrelsman. See if they dont know me by name!!!!! If you ever wonder why they are out of stock on parts some times, well, I am you answer. Like I have been saying, I work a couple of packs working on orientations and then a coupole of packs playing around.
RIght Now I am just trying to get something consistant to put on tape for you guys.

Really...a breeze compared to a CP heli? I find the FP more difficult to fly, especially in the wind. Speaking of the wind, I'm still waiting for some 450 size heli action in the wind, like this:

Watch at YouTube

That's a fully stock HBFP (with the exception of the Super Skids) with only 3 months of FF experience under my belt. It's one thing to showcase backyard flying (don't get me wrong, still takes skill to keep it confined to the backyard. I also enjoy backyard flying), yet it's another to open it up a little in the wind .

WOW...so much to say where do I start?first there is video proof of all of my "claims" so I think enough said for me on that subject

second as I said before everyone knows I am a HUGE advocate of hovers and orientation,so much so that I spent MONTHS on hovers only,but having said that it seems there are many who have said they are interested on flips/ inverted but just dont feel ready.2 things 1) sim,if you dont have one get one.If you are not interested in ever inverting a heli its not necessary but if you are its mandatory.2) doing flips/ inverted is not some magical mystical thing.it is a series of stick moves plain and simple. a flip is really VERY easy its 2 stick movements and one is constant.its really basic in those terms and its all timing.go up high enough and give it a try(once you have moves down on sim)once you do it you will be hooked.and I'm telling you from experience,once you break that barrier,and get rid of the later/next year thing.you break out of that fear and things move along fast

I used to think the same thing,dreaming of doing rolls,flips,inverted,always next year,or soon,or later this year, more hover work,but there is only so much hovering you can do.I just got the guts to try it and things are moving along fast now

everyone has their comfort level.my point is this:dont put it off because you think it is HARD.if I can do it ANYONE out there can(this is for the people who WANT to advance,if you are happy hovering around your yard with no interest in flips,HAPPY HOVERING,enjoy,thats what this hobby is all about,having fun))
