Been out of the hobby for 6 months odd, and even before that I was only just starting to do circuits. Now i'm starting from the beginning and re-learning nose in etc.. My current training gear (the rod and ball style) has seen better days and doesnt support the heli anymore. So I've got a hoop, but would like some pics of your hoops to give me some ideas on how to fix it to my heli. R50 btw. I can hover/land perfectly well and confidently without the gear, but want to put it back on for nosein etc..

I have wooden dowels long enough, and I have the carbon rods etc.. from my old training gear.

Please show me some pics to help me out.

Thanks

Andy

I appreciate your confidence in me. However, I am not so. I'm gonna be putting plenty of sim time in, but for a while I wanna strap the training wheels back on.

I am willing to be that if you were that profecient (doing circutis, nose in) before, you wont and shouldnt have any problems just hovering.

I would suggest NOT going with the training gear, unless you absolutly have to..

I was only just starting circuits, certainly not very well, and nose in was not really happening. I'm starting again and want to learn slow and properly, and for me that means having a safety net, aka the hoop. Thanks Blake, thats great, i'll get going with mine
