Who can do them?
I can auto my Fury Extreme 90 all day but am scared to even think about doing it on my TRex.

A chap at my club stripped a gear on mine when going inverted, managed to bring it down safely if a little hard.

I have been doing them for a while now and it is more of a controled fall but they will auto, no were near as good as your Fury
It just takes some time and you need some unbrakeable landing gear to start with as it will bounce a few time before you get use to the feel

There's a recent video here of Danny Szabo autoing his T-Rex. You gotta get the collective pitch and the angle of attack on descent just exactly right, and still it's a handful.

Like Guy said, the vids in my site show quite a few Trex SE autos ! gotta love them SAB blades !!
its actually pretty damn easy once you get used to how little reserve you have.

Anytime.
Flying inside on a Gym floor - No Problem

We have had a couple of auto contest inside with Trexs.

They auto OK, just manage the collective.

Having room to slide also helps.

I just tried some today. Out of about 8 tries I landed 2. One landing was pretty good but on the other one it hit so hard I thought I had destroyed it. No damage though, it took back off fine. Gotta love the T-Rex!!

Hi. Getting rid of the driven tail makes autos with the T-Rex a non event. Unless you are doing aerobatic autos, the driven tail just is not necessary.

See [url=http://www.runryder.com/gallery/7391/] My Gallery for some pics of the mod'ed gear and also there is a video of a few autos.

Auto gear
Gorilla gear from RChover was mailorder courage for me. No aerobatic autos yet but 3 out of 4 that I would have videotaped if ne one was there to do it. Even in these midwest winter temps the gear did not break on that first ugly Trex auto.
