Any tips on making nose in easier? I hate using the TG but i would probably crash too much to learn anything. I already know how to repair the heli. Just need to learn ow to fly it. Enjoy

The only thing I can say after watching your video is keep on doing what your doing until your very comfortable looking at the nose. Then drop the training gear and fly it like you stole it... Your doing great as far as I can tell.... Nice job

Tom..... No "D" flying....

Hello toolman,can you fly the heli in foward flight?When I learned long ago we learned to hover then foward flight back in a hover.Then putting the heli up in the air nose in and learned to hover it high,when it fell out you just fly it back into a hover.I think putting the heli into foward flight is important to know.Hope this helps and just keep at it.Small steps and less down time that helpa alot

i'm doing the same practice as you =) i want to master it for quick reactions xp it's no fun flying only tail in => nice job

norsman i can fly the heli nose in in foward flight, cause its much easier than a stable hover nose in like he is doing... in foward flight you are following a sequence of movents youre not really thinking what each stick do

(obviously when doing slow turns and so... in quick reactions you would have to think before do it=D)

I know the training gear was already mentioned but:

That gear looks WAY heavy for that heli.

The thing will fly WAY better without it.

Give yourself time to get used to it.

It's gonna feel like a new machine.

I bet your flight times will go up too.

FF
Yeah. i can do 8's. I want to be able to make a circle in front of me. If i can do that ill be very happy. I know how to move the sticks. I can envision it in my head but i wont try it until i master the nose in.
Thanks for all the nice comments

toolman my son is at the same point as you.But like neon said it's much easier to learn by flying it at you then a hover.And like I tell my son when your coming around in that figure8 nice and slow and your at that point just HOLD your sticks and she will come around nicely,no crazy movements just hold your sticks at that point

Your nose in looks really good to me. It would be easier outside and a little higher. Inside your garage the air is pushing it around. I think you just about got it mastered. I didn't do any nose in until I turn any direction on the sim and hover without really thinking about what position it's in. Then after i hover for a little bit i snap it around to another random postion. That way your mind doesn't get wired into "nose-in" or "tail in" or whatever your just flying the heli..I find side in to be way harder than nose in. But that just me. Your doing great..Keep it up!

Sim time
Everytime i think about using the sim i go burn a pack. Im up to 3 0r 4 packs a day. Weekends i burn alot more. As fast as i can charge them. I only have 2. I really need another pack or 2. Ive been putting all my money into the Raptor 50. Oh well. Ill get another pack, one of these days. Oh by the way, i timed my flight the other day with the Rappy. I got 14 minutes of FF and a little hovering. Not to bad. Just a dirty machine. Its very fun though. Dont tell Tryan that you commented about the sim. It could go very bad.

I think in short it just takes practice for something your not used to. I had the right is harder than left syndrome just means you need to practice right more.
