Ive been flying now for a month and 6 days... been progressing pretty quickly and some guys at field told me i should buy the green paddles because they are for more 3d...luckily for me todd at our local field had some to sell me thank you todd... put those puppys on and it made all the difference...i mean wow didnt think it was going to be that much faster on elev and ailerons...even tried a kaos and some death spins...much easier to do those with the green paddles... also tic tocs are much easier if anyone else is thinking about getting them i deffinatly recommend them

I Agree with you.
For 3D, the first thing to do is to install lighter paddles.
Best response on controls and less engine bogging.

If you want to make your raptor 50 the best, install a revmax and fly at 2000 rpm rotor speed.

Progressing quickly is an understatement! In a month and 6 days you can do all that? What are you doing, flying every daylight hour? It took me a couple years to be able to do those things. I'm jealous, it looks like we got the next Szabo here.

I was still on my under carriage after a month - you must have put some serious time in to be doing all that

Logan is not kidding. I fly with him and he has progressed FAST. I spent two months hovering!! I guess it is the video game generation!!

Yeah I would probably still be hovering if it wasnt for g3...i put about 4 hours a day into it for a month before i got my heli... still put about an hour into it a day just trying new stuff...

And I have to say a big thanks to guys at west valley heli club too they have helped me alot... being that i really have no idea what anything on a heli is yet...

I put the green paddles on my 50SE Hyper 2 weeks ago. What I love about them is that the heli now turns on a dime but is still smooth and stable in hover .
I love my sim as well but there is no ways I could ever put 4 HOURS on it per day! Even one hour is pushing it. The joys of youth!

Not surprised here. Like LoganAZ said: he spent quite a few hours on simulator before the first flight. And that's the key. It's always the key. Behind every fast progressing pilot (and there is a lot of them), there is a sh*tload of simulator time. I'm more amazed about the people failing to realize that young people learn quickly.

Another observation I've made is that behind every sim kiddie ("too" fast progressing kid) they've had a lot of sim time over a very short time period. Having the same amount of sim time over a longer period would not make him equally good.

So the key elements in order to become a fast progressing pilot are:
  • Be younger than 30
  • Use a simulator
  • Use the simulator several hours a day for a few months
But everybody knows this. It's no news anymore. These people pops up all over the place these days and will continue to do so more rapidly. And that's great! But by no way is it a surprise to see this kind of progress anymore.

Now, back to the thread:

LoganAZ, I'm also guessing you're aware of the trick using harder dampers in your rotor head. Either the TT red ones or the CX. This will crispen your moves a tad. These are pretty much the most important upgrades for making a R50 3D-ish =)

Looking at your gallery I see you have your landing strut mounted backwards. Don't do it. It looks silly and it really have no effect during take-off and landing. Put them the way they are ment to be =)

It's amazing what the green paddles can do.

My raptor 30 with black ones and green ones is a different helicopter!
With the green ones it roll's amazingly fast!

LoganAZ, in this 6 months had any crashes?

I fly helicopters for 2years now and am starting in 3D since last november. But only had one small crash due to mechanical failure.

I guess that the fear of breaking also slows down the learning curve!

Keep it up...literally

Nothing will et the blood flowing like the engine dying while inverted! I had the engine on my Raptor 70 die at about 15 feet inverted, I flipped it over and autoed it down with no trouble, and no stress, but once it was down the adrenaline hit! Had to sit down for a few minutes.

Good for you Logan, stick with it, don't get burned out.
