True...I included it to show the idea. But you are correct that it does not really apply since we run much higher HS and...Well a rough landing will not kill us, only our pocketbooksGyroFreak
That full size dead zone isn't near as relavent for us.
I have visions of the poor heli pilot needing to do an auto, yelling "Where is that dang chart, I need it NOW !!"
LMAO....If you ever do a real auto in a real heli....You will poo yourself a little I think. In practice in the R22 you hit almost 2000 feet/min descent rate at 60 knots. You don't stay airborne long at all.ZXXflyer
I am now working on inverted autos, but can't decide if I like flipping out with aileron or elevator. With elevator gives me great head speed, but is way harder to coordinate properly than with aileron...
If you look at the Southern Rotary Classic videos I finish the flight with an inverted auto. I find rolling out SO much easier than flipping out. It is much easier to keep HS rolling. I have not done many flipping with my Trex, but I used to do them all the time with my EVO and Vigor.
