WOW, I wish I had seen this series when I was learning by myself. Many broken blades and bent shafts could have been saved.
One thing I learned the hard way, was do not set up any negative (or very little) while learning to hoover. Panic will cause you to pull the collective all the way down and negative pitch will slam it into the ground hard, resulting in many bad things happening.
So for you beginners, do not set up the way the manual says (+12 to -12 degrees pitch), set up for maybe +10 to -2 degrees pitch. After all, you won't be auto rotating from 12 inches off the ground or doing inverted flight..

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

set up for maybe +10 to -2 degrees pitch
only thing is i run -4 just cause in higher wind its nice to be able to bring it down without worring bout head speed cause i learnered to hover in idle up which makes hovering a ton easier. just my 2 cents

1000 parts looking for a place to crash

Higher headspeed doesallow for more stability. However, "flipping the switch" can be a big deal for noobies. Just make sure your + and - on pitch is all good before you do.
