But don't forget there is no spacebar in real life.

After a long weekend of simulator (cold and windy) I told myself I'd stop to fly like somebody that does not want to risk anything.

So out I went today and flew like I would do on the sim. Never finished my first flight

Ended it in a snow bank... not to bad, it cushioned my crash.

Results :

- Spindle
- flybar
- Main mast
- 2 HS 65 Gearset (plastic one)
- and the one way sleeve... yep! it sheared clean just above the main gear...

appart from that, the rest seems just purfect... a small dab of paint on the canopy has chipped but you have to look carefully

Not bad... I'll fly again soon

Seems to me that flying the real thing is easier than on the sim, other than the pucker factor, and your eyes adjusting to the REAL thing versus the sim. The pucker factor is what will get you every time. Its the adrenaline rush that gets your brain and fingers working against each other, and it doesnt take long from there.

A bad day of flying is better than a good day of work

I also feel that real flying is easier than SIM.
First, even the SIM graphic on the PC screen look great but somehow I don't realy feel real 3 diamension view on screen.
Second, the real fly is more challenging as sometimes unforeseen factors such as loosened screw on tail rotor hub causing difficuty in control and increment of my heart beats.
This morning, my Beam crashed due to the above problem during fly.
But I learned something I cannot learn from SIM.

However, SIM is useful to practice new skills with no cost and good to spend time during rainy day.

Fly high with dreams !!

Cant beat the adrenaline rush of a real flight

I now know the beam is easy to fix since it is very well made and cheap to fix! It will probably push myself much harder next time knowing all that.

Have you guys sheared the one way sleeve? It seemed to me like a sacrifical part in the drive train and certainly saved my gears... and at 3-4 for about 4$, it is a good idea

Just yesterday my one way sleeve sheared just as you described. When I tried to find this part online, it seems it's out of stock just about everywhere. When it sheared on my beam, the 50T tail drive pulley busted in half. Does this happen often in crashes? and does it really save gears?

There is no royal road to flying helis but the sim sure helps!

yeah, I think it acts like a sacrifical gear

I think I'm still on my original main gear...

Wow and that was over a year ago! I just bought a main gear thinking it will strip in crashes like my trex used to. Does the pulley drive gear (50T) break as often as the one way sleeve?

hi all
iv'e found the sleeve breaks quite easy and most of the time takes out the belt pulley when it does break
i will be trying a few mods and do some testing and will post results
only problem i can think of is if i stop that breakin what else will break and how much extra will it cost
