CCW Blades
Counter Clockwise rotating blades are universally used for tree trimming. They are balanced for oak and poplar and some small diameter maple saplings.

Generally, rotary trimming should be attempted in the spring of the year before the growing season.

I suggest using a light 10w oil on the blades and don't try this with night blades as it leaves gummy sap residue in the the LEDs (leaf encountering deciduous). Use the up and down sawing motion as demonstrated in the video.

700 and 800 sized helis are generally used for trimming the canopy of mature trees while 450 and 500 sizes are best for bush and shrubs. The use of nitro does not seem to do harm, adds power to the rotary cycle, and we recommend using 30% nitro fuel for your light forestry projects.

I think that is pretty much arbitrary. What ever one way bearing direction you choose.

sorry about knocking you out of your chair.

Except for Mikados, Henseleits, Minicopters...I think most can be set up to run ccw though. Don't know a reason...

CCW=CounterClockWise

Many scale model helicopter rotors spin CCW because the full size helicopter rotor rotation is CCW, and they're trying to be, well, scale.

That makes the most sense,
but I like the tree trimming explanation more.

The Henseleits 3DNT is CCW. The engine requires a special crankshaft so that it runs the other way.

I am guessing that most models run clockwise because nitro engines run CCW and it is the easiest to make with the pinion to main gear connection.

The electric guys just copied but they would be very easy to make run the opposite way.

There are small hints throughout this video that some parts of this individual's heli setup are a bit "random". If I could be so bold, I might suggest the Hit-N-Miss strategy is in play here. There seems to be hints of trial and error going on. I wonder if the anti-clockwise rotation is by choice or uses the same methodical design techniques as the collective direction setup? Just thinking out loud....

FYI--- The clip in this thread has been posted before and the little bit posted above is part of a larger vid.

The longer YouTube is instructive because if you watch closely, you will see him reverse the collective in the transmitter. It goes without saying that this is extremely dangerous. It's also done far too frequently.

The results is what you see in the video. Sitting on the ground, left stick down, the heli is at idle, and the pitch is full (reversed). The left stick is advanced to 1/2 and the pitch goes to zero, the motor is raging and the heli won't lift off. More left stick only yields more power, more RPM and less pitch. Frustrated, the modeler slams the left stick to "idle", the pitch goes to +12, and the heli rockets into the air.
