TWilly, it's obvious you've spent some time perfecting your helis moves and are hitting the corrections instinctively. INSTINCT, that's when you automatically KNOW where the heli is going and are able to read and react quickly with the correct input to continue a flight without dreaded dumb. thumb. INSTINCT, is attained by repetitive performance of a flight path so often you could do it with your eyes closed.

Your vids TrexW not at any time demonstrated hard core smack style, more a practiced art style of orientations, transitions, and easy going 3d , nothing wreckles perhaps in the cause of maintaining a machine rather than making the flight the last thing it will survive, you make it look like FUN.

This is what most 3d heli middle weights want to perform, not to show off but to enjoy seeing the heli do things it was never imagined of not so long ago. Dare to dream.

My transitions are coming along pretty good in the sim with progress into sideways inverted circuits next. A few days ago my 300 rotor went vertical to the ground and when that happens it goes like snot, too little room so I lofted it skyward in the nick of time and stirred the right stick while piro-ing to nose into to level it up a bit. Wasn't terrible but did give my heart a few un-authorized palpitations . What's 50ft per second? (35mph) It's teaching me a few things. When I sim I sometimes piro the heli as fast as it can revolve while trying to directionally fly it in ovals, 8s and possible loops and rolls. When you mix something simple with something else simple the two mixed can become something very difficult to execute well.

When's the last time you tried a high speed piro-ing loop or roll?

I've been practicing nose out off the take-off roll to inverted nose out fly out, little tricky to set it up by nosing the heli down before flipping.

I can do some piro loops, but right now just in and out, no profile yet... I do about half a dozen in this flight...

i guess you can call this taking it easy

i had a 11t pinion on a mx motor and elevator compensation was reversed .
ive upgrades to a 14t going for test flight in a couple hrs

"Willi put the longer 360mm blade on 450xl boom and didn't
Use the new bigger spindle shaft, same thing happen to me.

This my take it easy flights on a Rex 250 pro, "The 250 isn't easily handle you gota know how to.

I'd like to comment here, that every or almost every flyer likes landing totally nose out. Upon reversing the rotation of my tail blades to clockwise viewed from the right of the heli I have the dubious issue of tail blades kicking anything up if they touched ground, the bottom of rotation going toward the back. My back yard is full of grass and many of my landings are in it.
After seeing MrBowflex demonstrate nose in auto landings. I've made a habit to land nose in not entirely based on that but because it's kinda hard and looks like a really cool way of landing, beside not risking dirt flung at me landing nose out. Touch down tail landings also put you at risk if a grip fastener lets go on that one last time. I used to be careless at first but upon seeing things like a tail clamp come off in flight I began to take all aspects of safety much more seriously, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure they say. I avoid landings with the tail facing me directly.

It would be nice to see more side or nose in landings, and it helps with orientations.

Not sure where to ask this question. I've been trying to learn piroflips on the sim. Very frustrating. I'm solid with all orantations inverted. I just wanted to start my piroflip practice. I am having a hard time. I've watched the videos on how to--- etc. I've slowed the realflight down and can kinda get it a bit but it's all over the place. Is it more of perfect stick movements or watching and reacting to every movement of the heli during the piroflip ? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Life is good. Better with a bunch of Heli's

The best way they never told you is learn to move the heli around in all directions inverted and shiny side up while pirouetting it, do this at your piro rate, so set up all your helis for the most comfortable piro rates, that way you wont be thrown off by the timing of the tail and attitude of the heli.

This is the prerequisite for that maneuver. Flipping the heli will fall into place a lot easier once you get this down.

As for getting it to stay in one place while piro flipping, well that will take much practice.

I do not practice on the sim, its just not the same experience.

P.S.
How long have you been flying?

Fly hard, fly low, fly till she leaves and never comes back.

Nick Maxwell have a cool video on YouTube call One tank tips.There he goes thru piro flip and all the orientations needed to learn . I'm also practicing the same on the sim starting to see progress. I have been flying since about February and if you can do it on a sim you can do it in real life just get over the pucker factor. My first heli logo600sx since day one it was built been had all 8 orientations mastered. Keep trying if you get any progress please post it so I can know

It has taken me two years preparing so I could piro flip, now 1/2 piro flips are pretty good and full are possible, but with some wandering. For a while, I was not sure I would ever be able to do them. I envy the young pilots that learn this much quicker. Learning to piro competently upright and inverted was the critical maneuver that is required. Piro circles allow you to make corrections on the fly which is exactly what is needed when the heli is flipped.

For me, the break through in executing piro flips was slowing everything down, especially the tail. This gives time to see what is happening to learn what corrections are needed. You can slow the heli down with dual rates or just adding some expo. I prefer expo, so as I progress, faster flips just means throwing the stick a little further. Speeding them up comes naturally once you have the basics.

Thanks guys for the info. Long story short. I was into planes 3D and later I was pretty big into helis for about 3 years, flying glo helis. Had a few electrics and 3 raptor Titan 50's. Then quit flying because of family, kids etc. now, 8 years later, I couldn't stay away. Got back into 3D planes and I couldn't resist the heli fever. Got me another sim and got back to work. I've been back into helis about 8 months. I never did any heli 3D the first time around. Just some flips and rolls. So far, I've bought 3 Nano CPX's, A MCPX BL, trex 450 L and a gaui X5. I have all up right orientations back, have learned all inverted orientations, I can now fly figure 8's inverted nose first and counter clockwise circles inverted, tail first. That's where I'm at now. I'm no spring chicken, (43) so I'm pushing pretty hard to get this muscle memory down as quick as I can. I consistently spending about 2 hours a day on the sim and flying about 3 or 4 times a week in the real.

Life is good. Better with a bunch of Heli's
