Set the throttle hold high enough so the clutch is still engaged. This way you can bail out easily, and you can hear your rotor rpm.

Hi Dragonlord

Do you have a driven tail then?
If not dont worry about the gyro

I did nothing but auto approaches yesterday from the left and the right
Almost plucked up enough courage to flick the switch but bottled it!
I was using normal flight mode with the tickover set nice and slow
Could have done with a little more wind to make it easier
Next time maybe!

After the first few you'll wonder what all the fuss was about . Don't worry if your auto's in Reflex aren't that good, the Raptors at least have far too little blade weight and are much harder than real life. I taught myself using one of the first versions of the CSM sim and real life was easy after that, plus I was autoing without a driven tail & a mechanical gyro - revo mix? thats for whimps!

Hi SRH990

How many degrees of negative do you use for an auto?

Some ppl say -9 others -2

What do you think?

helitubbie not it just a raptor 30 so im ok then

SRH990 iv flown the raptor with out a gyro and no tail mixing
Iy was intresting to say the least.

shall we call it catch a tail on a raptor a new party game.

yea iv noticed than things are harder in reflex thats the great thing about reflex get in XTR and when you try it on the real one its a pices off piss to do.

I dident think than it was negative pitch that you need

I thort it was plenty of + pitch thats needed in hold mode.

My R50 is running -7 degrees in throttle hold and managed to auto when the pipe came off the carb at about 40ft! I had 140gms SAB glass/carbon blades at the time and they take forever to stop spinning when cutting the engine, try killing the engine then feeding in collective and see if it climbs, nice party piece.

I've got about +11 degrees positive which is plenty and isn't really that necessary, its having enough negative to keep the blades spinning, the flair out at the bottom and enough positive to stop the descent. -7 to +11 is probably more than is really needed but too much is better than not enough
