The Sim can give you a false sense of confidence. One guy that comes to the field sometimes gets pissed !! Everytime he tries inverted - he Crashes and says--- What the Hell I don't understand--I can do it on the SIM perfectly

Doug,
Did that wiring-spec I sent you work for the GY401 (?)
It's light at 29g and has plenty of power but runs pretty hot.
TC,
I've had a few of the Arc's fail after they started doing this

Wow those pics of what look like mostly Blade CP pros bring me back a few years down memory lane. I didn't think anybody still flew them as they were designed. Hmmmmm....... interesting.

Just starting to try collective pitch and one of the guys at the airfield gave me one. The servos seem good but are real twitchy and the 4-in-1 box gets really hot when it is plugged into the battery. I think it has a bad 4-in-1 unit and I really don't want to spend $80 for a new one. If it weren't for the twitch it would be flyable. Just gonna hold onto now for parts if I ever come across another one for cheap.

Smart guy Adam! This heli is a handful and not an ideal trainer. Doug and I started on these helis because we didn't know better. Now that we can fly they're really fun and still a handful. I recommend as large an electric and as good a quality as you can afford to start with. Everyone is going to larger birds so most intermediate and advanced pilots have a 450 that they don't fly anymore. Try to get one from the someone at the field. A 450 is still small by today's standards but cheap to repair and pretty stable to start out with (much more stable than a Blade CP). BTW if and when you get another 4 in 1 and rebuild your Blade make sure that you go direct drive on the tail with a 3020 or 3030 prop. Good luck!

Sometimes you would find used esky 4in1 and tx combo on eBay auction which is a lot cheaper than an eflite 4in1 alone. A 450 clone kit comes cheap but you would have to spend a lot more on the electronics to bring it to life. If you manage to resurrect that Heli, add another pair of weights to the flybar and the weights will eliminate that awful 'drift-all-over-the-place' feel.

Very nice Doug. I like the tail-in funnel, graceful and attractive in its own..something different from the usual smack-down moves which get pretty mundane after a while.

Terence, funnels are Fun--- kinda mezmorizing in a way while you are doing them If you happen to to find yourself with a "dangling Battery" just relax and bring her in.

Doug, when I learned nose-in funnels, I started by doing fwd circles. Do I need to learn how to fly backward circles to be able to do tail-in funnels?

No, I cannot fly backward circles-- never praticed them. The tail in funnels are kinda hard to explain but once the heli is moving in the funnel there is hardly any stick movement at all. The amount of left/right cyclic determines how big the circle is and the steeper the angle of the heli the faster you have to go to keep the heli from dropping.
I want to master the "inverted tail-in funnel" still not very confident with them yet----although I can do them perfectly on the Sim

Terrence, by saying 'nose-in' and 'tail-in' do you mean upright nose-down and upright tail-down? Am I confused? If you are learning an upright tail-down funnel it sure helped me to start by flying backwards. It's a natural transition from one to the other. Maybe I misunderstand what 'yous guys is talking about'.

Final iteration
Okay gang, here it is. The final final FINAL version of the Razorblade. You'll notice I got rid of the outrunner for a hot little Hobby King inrunner with a propsaver. I hate push-on props. I believe in my heart this is the BEST that can be done with a Blade. God knows, it cost enough! Here's the specifics:

Phoenix 25 main ESC
T-bird 6 tail ESC
Neu Razor 350 main motor (hence the name), custom heatsink
HK Blue Bird hot little inrunner tail motor, 4x2.5 prop
Lightened Futaba 401 gyro - max gain, delay 100%
MKS DS450 servos - ultimate for this size chopper IMHO
Stock bling head with custom machined nylon dampers
Micro Heli swash (I think)
Stock carbon main blades.
Rhino 1050 30c 3s lipos
Axe CP paddles. Yes, I run weights to take the edge off!
Oh, yah - century auto clutch.

I just came in from the yard and this is as good as a motor-drive tail heli gets.

Hey Mitch I notice that you have taken my advice and are running the tail as 'puller' rather than a 'pusher'. It'll keep the motor cool and will never overheat. Good idea, if I say so myself. Now the question remains if that HobbyKing motor compares to the old Medusa or the new Neu 'Proton' series 12x30 inrunners (4000KV). Just pumping the collective to see how the tail holds is not enough; you need some fast backward (upright or inverted) then throw in the hard collective. If it holds then, you have passed the test grasshopper...

Get rid of the auto clutch, the Bling head, change the tail motor to a Medusa/Neu with a 3030 press on Prop. And throw some Wood blades on it, and you will then have imho the best Set-up for the Blade.
