Hi.

Well I finally plucked up the courage to try some loops at lunch time today, What a buzz. I have been practicing nose in and stall turns and also FFF and decided that now I can do stall turns and 540 stall turns, I would go that bit further and continue the stall into a loop and got it spot on. I then done another 6 or 7 just to make sure that it was not just luck, and found that they are just so easy to do, I apply - pitch as I start to bring the nose over and then start going to +pitch on the pullout and out I come at the same altitude that I entered and a perfectly round loop.

I must confess that I belive the heli is doing most of the work because I seem to have to do very little to do the manover. I also found when starting forward flight that the heli seems to stabalise itself and I have to do very little to control it.

I just need to be able to put all this together and not be shaking like a leaf at the end of the flight.

The last 10 weeks seem to have flown by, I started flying helis in August and can't belive that I have progressed to this point so fast.

What a great hobby.

Andy.

Great job!!! It also helps to have people around whose skill level is more advanced to push your skills higher!

If you keep doing the same thing…...you’re going to get the same results!

Thanks.

I am fortunate in that there are a good bunch of pilots at the field that I fly at and they always offer their help and support when needed.
