Calling all Pilots and Captions
Hi Guys,

I have been reading these forums for quite some time and have found some great information here. These forums are a great way to learn..

If I may ask a question; how may of you feel that with your many years expierence flying rc, that it would be very easy to sit into a real heli and fly?

Thanks guys, keep up the good work...

It would NOT be easy, however I believe it would be easier for a good RC flyer to fly full scale than it would be for a full scale pilot to fly RC, for the first time.The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

It took me 5 hours of flight training to hover with any degree of stability. The transition to RC helis wasn't helped at all other than with the dynamics of autoratation.

I have heard of RC pilots being able to hover a full scale heli in some cases on the first attempt. The first thing I did when flying scale was to over compensate on all of the controls. I believe that learning on RC and getting a feel for the proper amount of input to any given control will make it easier to learn on a full scale heli.

Best Of Luck..........
Pretty sure that it won't give you any advantage at all except to know that the "spiney" thing on top has to keep turning!!!
And as mentioned earlier some of the "theory" may help a bit.... but now you will be sitting in it.... BUT THAT SOUNDS GOOD TO ME!!!!!!!!

Let us know when you get a "krack-roll" out of one of their machines....

Best of luck with your training..... Stan

I think knowing what I know about rc helis would make me more nervous. Just think when something happens to our helicopters like a fail bolt or a servo or belt slipping sure makes me think about what could fail on a full scale In the long run it would be helpful knowing how a helicopter flys. But I don't think one would learn faster on a full scale due to rc flying. JimmiA computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing

I found that flying full size planes ( single prop ) is easier than models, but helis (bell 47 G ) a nightmare in a hover, translation is the same as a full size plane ; easy.35 of modelling planes helis etc i live in the south of France

You can't be speaking from experience. I trained and received my heli rating on a Robinson R22. During my first flight in a Bell 47 I was able to knock over a cone and sit it back up on the first try because it was so stable. I never could do it in the R22 although I only tried it once.

it helps you understand the dynamics and how the helicopter will react in certain situations, and it helps you hover because you already have the mindset of making small control inputs and not over controlling the Heli. i think i could hold a fairly stable hover in the first hour or two in the real thing.

that said, it is a completely different animal, and while you might learn to hover a little faster, thats pretty much where the similarities end.

I got sit in Stat-Medevacs full size simulator and give it a go, although I was shakey at first I got the hang of it after a couple of trys. I have to believe that my R/C experience helped a little. but thats all I could do was hover a bit.Its What I dont Say You Should Be Worried About...

how about wiring up an RC TX to a fly-by-wire control system in a heli. that should fix everything except the fact that you're sitting in it.

I hovered a Schweizer 300 after 5-10 minutes, not boasting, it was all down to knowing what the situation was from model experience, and having about the correct amount of control pre-wired. The feet were noticeably lazy however. So I think many /most of us could do as well. But the R22 was very nervous. MY "instructor" didn't have anything like the ease of the Schweizer instructor.
