Well in the SIM anyway. I've been using the CSM sim and mostly crashing and last night I found that if I let the heli sort of drift to a landing that I can land it most of the time. Before I was using the stick to drop it down which resulted in a crash most of the time. I'm so excited that I can finally land.

gonna hopefully try tonight. Hope I don't crash. I made a set of really long dowel traing gear to get my nerve up so hopefully all will be okay.

yep. lots of fun that was, heli spun around in circles until it snapped the tail pitch lever. Apparently the gyro is incorrect. Although maybe its just busted from going in the pool but I doubt it. I wonder what I did wrong.

I used the Honeybee 004 FP heli to learn with
and it only cost me $10 in parts for 8 hours of flying. Fixed pitch was horibble once I got to fig 8 stage but it was well worth the money in the basic learning stage. I had access to a 30'x20' area to learn in. Enough room to make a mistake and recover. I sold it to a clubmate for $25 less than I paid. Very cheap training.

If the balls on your training gear rotate fairly freely and you put the heli on a hard surface, you'll spin the heli while still on the ground if the tail is not set correctly. It's cheaper that way

rob when i build my heli they advice me find someone to look at it before put it on air for first time. It was a very difficult thing here because i was tottaly disconected from the rc scene.At last a buddy from here RR voluntered and since then i am on 65th fligth without a cent on crashes (ok its a glow one Trex has allready 400 bucks on crashes )

It is as important as to have a sim to have an experienced friend look your setup once.. otherwise you will soon become dissapointed with no really reason at all.

good luck
