How to convert airplane guys?
Hey, guys I belong to a great club with a good number of members, but the lot of them are airplane guys how do I help convert them? There is nothing wrong with planes I fly them to, but I'm also a heli guy.

You can't convert them. All you can do is hope to be excepted. Be nice, ask lots of questions (so they feel important) and don't hover in their flight path. Six years ago there was just two heli guys in our club out of more than a 100 members. Now we have and I'm guessing around 30 heli guys out of 160 members. I can think of only two that switched from planes to helis and they both switched back.

Good luck
John

Hi:

I was an airplane only 3d pilot but now I fly both! Actually my son and I both fly helis and airplanes

We love anything 3D

Does any body do 3d boat runs? We would love to sign up for that too. Any 3d car drivers?

One suggestion is to bring a heli sim down to the field or during one of your club meetings and challange the airplane guys and charge that they can't learn to fly a heli even if you put a sim in front of them.

this worked for a few people that I know.

The nice thing at my local airfield is that more and more of the airplane guys are slowly migrating over to helis. . . .

Thanks goodness for the Trex's and Raptors 30/50's.

Currently I think that we have about just over 20 heli pilots at our field.

Nas,
