What if you had a Heli (electric) on the space station, what would be the settings, keep in mind there is no gravity.
Next question how would you think it would fly, or should I say behave



Finally learned to fly inverted, Helps if you stand on your head

Whatever you like, except that there won't be a lot of room to maneuver and blade strikes might be expensive, so it had better not be too zippy. It'll have to be collective pitch.

I predict quite long flight-times.

A bit like a kite, but 500 times more expensive

I think low headspeed and a pitch curve about -2 to +2 would work. Very fast servos would be needed as well, and of course X9303

I guess the "settings" would be OFF
uh, since there is no gravity, it would "hover" without the blades turning.

Some people know the difference between hovering and floating there doing nothing, do you?

Come on guys, this is a good thinkers problem. I think it would be great to try this, imagine the new moves we could come up with, not having to fight gravity.

But the REAL problem would be the shipping costs on the crash kit!

Thats a good question I think it would just spin like crazy bucause of there being no gravity and air in space. You have the torque from the main motor but no air to flow over the tail rotor blade to create thrust.

But that is just my guess

There would be airflow. He's talking about flying inside, like in a space station, where there is an artificial atmosphere, just no gravity.

You'd need less pitch of course.... I think that you'd have to work the collective a lot more in vertical maneuvers, because pulling back to midstick the heli would still climb due to zero gravity. You'd have to force it down with negative pitch.

"Sideways" maneuvers like tic-tocs and piroflips would be easier, as you wouldn't have to work the collective to maintain altitude, just attitude/direction.

All in all it would definitely take some getting used to. The heli would definitely act differently.

Mikado Logo 400, hopefully ready by spring.

Nope, we need gravity to fly these birds. Without gravity we'd hover at 0-pitch. But that would still yield some torque. That torque would still be countered by the tail rotor. But the tail rotor would still give us a side force. Without gravity, the heli would have to roll 90 degrees to the right to counter the side force. And then the cycle would just continue. So you'd be rolling continuously to the right just to try and hold still.

artificial atmosphere
So your saying that the air is artificial and not real? I wonder what fake air taste like

It will need two tail rotors, one at back and one at the front to hold it still in one place.

Right here. What would you like? Were you not satisfied with my explanation that the heli would be rolling continuously to the right?

So you are saying that we could not input enough left cyclic to offset the torque?

He is forgeting that the tail rotor would be running at near zero pitch also because there would be very little torque to fight. Hover would be 0 pitch on the mains, and just a slight amount of pitch on the tail to fight the friction in the bearings and areodynamic (sp?)drag
