Hey Nigel,
Im interested in your stick mode change..
I fly M1 and i expected your reason for changing to be making piro flips easier, but you make no mention about certain manouvers being easier with M2, more so the "social" side of things.

I know its not what this thread is about but in a few words could you say if you find piro flips ect easier / harder or the same in M1 or M2?

Has your flying improved since the switch? can you invisage any improvments in the future?
Would you recommend doing it?

Thanks Nigel,

Tony

Hi Vigor3DFX,

I dont think my prio flipping manouvers have improved. ive put in 100's of hours on the sim doing them so i think with practice there the same. For me it was more for the social benefits and piece of mind that it's like flying the real thing.

one thing i find harder to do is rolling circuits. they were cream in mode one. mode two is easier to visualize the helicopter through a manoeuvrer but once you have experience on the sticks there is a rythm to all the manoeuvres mode one or two, just takes practise

I thinks each mode has its own benifits and it's extremely hard and time consuming to make the change. I emailed Curtis about this and he said the same thing( stick with what you know) but i didnt get a respose until about three months into it so it was to late.

I sold my heli and remote when i was doing the conversion and went out and brought a copy of G2 with a mode two remote. I flow everyday for as long as i could normally around the two hour mark.

The only thing i can recommend is if you want somthing bad enough you will go to extreme levels to get what you really want. but you have to be commited 100% of the way.

Hope this helps in some way

Nigel

Yes it does,
wise words.

You know ,id love to do "locked in " piroflips and i hear all sorts of stories saying M2 is the only way to go, to make life even easier go get a cyclic ring ect ect which is completely usless for M1.

I think what im trying to say is that i have sort of mental barrier to get over doing this in M1.
The likes of you and Yammaguchi help these barriers a little and what i need to do now is practice practice.

If youve got any tips for practice methods then id love to hear them.
Anyway, superb flying in your vid, keep up the good work.

Tony

piroflip in mode 1

i've found that the hardest thing is coordinating elevator-aileron...
keeping a constant piro-rate doesn't seem to be a problem for me.

it helps a lot if you start out by only working elevator or aileron
once comfortable with that bring in the other cyclic.

another thing that helps are big, slow pirouetting loops.
Basically it are the same movements but a lot slower and thus
easier the perform.


i've only been doing this on the sim though
practise as much on the sim as you can.
