i think all of us new and old pilots should start showing examples on how to be safe with our choppers
agreed ?
here is my first one
if no one else is onboard than i guess i am all alone.
if you do not want to comment please just post +1 if you support this post

Watch at YouTube

setting new safety examples decided to take the first step i thought it was a good idea but man i feel so all alone.

people preach safety but when here is a post about it no one wants to offer there 2 cents shocking

I think it's a great idea to have a safety tips section. Might I suggest, as many already know, connecting the power to the helicopter with the hold function active on the transmitter.

I support the post, but am not entirely sure you are being safe, IMHO.

1) You should not be testing your servos with your face within striking distance of your blades. What if you accidentally hit the hold switch? Yikes!

2) While doing physical checks on the Heli with the transmitter bound to it, you should not be tethered to the tx, with tx under your arms while you hold the Heli. Put the tx to the side where you cannot accidentally hit it with your arm. Yes, keep tx within arms length, but not between you and the Heli you are handling and not while tethered and bound!

I like the thought and commend you for the effort, but please be safe when doing a video about safety.

Please let me know if I am way off base here.

connected the motor at 2:20 in the video

the motor was not plugged in on the rx was active.
my servos have there own battery and the motor has 12s

thank you for fine comment and observation

you dont see to many of the top pilots preaching safety i think
its time we all start.
might make the safety police job a little easier and better protect our hobby.

good idea to have a how to be safe section

my tips for electric are
> do your initial set up with a rx pack or bec
> make sure the motor pinion is backed away from the main gear so you can set up the ESC using the flight pack

at the field I use TH before plugging the heli

spending time, paying attention

One safety consideration, I too had the habit I seen in your video. I make it a point to never power on my heli with my Radio hanging from my neck strap, all it takes is one accidental bump to release the TH and not knowing it another bump to the throttle stick and trouble ! Please set TH on ,Place TX next to you on ground then power up heli .

I believe he already mentioned his Motor is not powered. Only the RX, then when he was ready, he then connect his Main battery. ... But I agree with RudeRebel and Mr Dan about the Radio hanging on your neck!.. Not a good habit to get used to!... Suposing you forgot, you already have your power battery on?.... Don't wanna know what will happen!!!

fwiw..

Great idea, Wicked!

Most of us in the hobby for awhile have seen or done things we wish we hadn't.....Any tips passed along might save serious injury or worse....
My opener is always remember these are toys..No matter how much we spend on the Gobby...Any part is not man rated, and will fail when you least expect it.....Not negative, just pragmatic.

Let's keep it going!

wc_w... Glad to hear that motor is not connected, and thanks for clarifying. My intention was not to criticize, only to drive clarity and safe practice.

Again, thanks for your efforts and thanks for posting.

+1....Safety is very important to our hobby and I love that people are talking about it. I am part of RCFLI and that is exactly what we preach. Be safe, be informed, and get involved to help keep others safe. Good job Wicked!

um, had to say this about the vid

BOW TO YOUR GOD

About the idea?

vid eg: "Hello ladies, and big boys, this here machinery is a big blender, it's no toy 'cause it has these machetes on it , but we'll say it's my toy 'cause I donno what else to call it.

Let me instruct you (against your will) on the proper way to start up an RCEE HELICHOPTER, and later we get to discuss many hazards of this toy which will land you in HOSPITAL for severe lacerations. Now then; Trust me, Ime no fool, been flying these thing for weeks. Ok, are YUU READEYYYYEEEE?

Safety step 1, do this here thingmabobjigfoee and you/heli'cetera will be safe to proceed to step 2. Do that and proceed to step 3. Do step 3 and stand clear of heli by how many yards? To be on the safe side? safe'cetera, cetera' cetera."

Das howee doo!

btw, You can get a small table or bench to plug in and check, then put it on the ground without getting on your knees, suppose it was wet grass?

man I gotta get me some premier soon,
