Cheers to training gear

Hi guys,

I crossed to the other side training gear gone...

I was shaking like a leaf and hubby was making a run for it! Sitting in the jeep taking the photies from a VERY safe distance, and kept saying that he was taking "care" of the kids!

Off for two weeks now ... bought 8 gallons of fuel told hubby it was for "school fees". I reckon that i will overtake him in the two weeks.

Hope you like the photies.


Cheers

Congrats!!!!! It's a good feeling isn't it? Let us know how different it flew with the gear off. I used them at first, but never got it in the air due to set-up issues. Flew it for the first time with out them (due to MANY hours on the sim) and all was good.

Again Good Job!!!!

Hey cybergirl, congratulations! Hopefully you will inspire me to do the same soon! I think I am overdue to take them off but still a bit scared...

Hey abeille, don't be scared! I know it seems a little intimidating, but as long as you have practiced on the sim, and keep a somewhat solid hover with the training gear, you should be fine.

I think you will be suprised how much more stable it is whithout them. I have heard this from many people. Just practice a little more and when you feel comfortable with a hover, take em off and enjoy!!

Let us know when you do your first solo "non t. gear" flight!!

Thanks guys,

I love every moment when i am up there coming down could be a bit more gracefull .

What we did is hubby got the mower and cleared a space that was about 15m x 15m and hovered in that if i went out it was considered as a crash, but i was wrecked after that i went off the track a bit started shaking like made ... but you right it is so much better without the gear. I havent flown for a few days now the wind is made here i am so scared to go up again. I found it quiet hard cause i always would orientate my-self on the red balls...!!!

Once again thanks for all the support you guys r the best!

I'll keep you up-dated.

Don't be afraid of the wind, unless it is more than 15 knots. I was scared at first but anything less than 10 is pretty easy to get used to and easy to correct. If your flying with no wind on your simulator, then your setting yourself up for failure. IMHO. Kick the wind up to about 10-15 with gusts at 25%. I have found that is a pretty realistic setting and it will help you get use to correcting and recovering in windy conditions. Reason I say this is, where I'm at, if I didn't practice on the sim with wind and was afraid of it, I would never get to fly unless I was flying in the dark or first thing in the morning. It's usually calm in the morning, wind picks up around 11am, and gradually increases through the day, and then drops off after sunset. To give you a visual of what I'm talking about, click the link below:

Weather for NS Mayport, FL

Before you know it, you'll be flying and not even thinking about the wind and subconscously(sp) correct for it.

Hey cybergirl,

Your progress gave me a much-needed push in the back and today I took off my training gear too... a bit scary when the heli got light on the skids for the first time but totally worth it! Increased stability and much less inertia to worry about when making turns etc. Plus, gives the engine a break, mine was running a bit hot these last few times.

So, what is next challenge you foresee? I need to practice on my sideways hover to get my " wings" ...
