Good grief! Seems everytime I really get it flyin really good I have to push it til I crash or break it! Could just hover around endlessly tail in and put the heli away in good condition but I seem to have to push my limit and try stuff that always ends in a BAD way. My wife just informed me that I dont come back in the house with it til somethings broken. I guess thats about right. Anybody else have this problem?

I'm rather the opposite - I think I'm capable of (or at least ready to try) things outside my "comfort zone". For fear of crashing and having to wait for weeks for parts, I just kind of "scale fly" and resist the temptation to try a flip or roll.

A soul in tension is learning to fly

My helis still scare me too bad to do anything too crazy but I do get the urge to push it once in a while. Like during my last battery pack I decided to see how the tail was holding so I bumped the throttle hard, grabbed about 10-15 feet elevation and just about lost the heli in an overhead power line Ok so I was a ways away from the line but it scared me. Oh and the tail did not hold. I guess I need a bigger open are if I want to do stupid things like that.

Edit: "Scare me" means that they cost lots of money and I don't have the skills to recover from bad things, so I am scared of crashing and putting dents in my car

yeah, think i do, anxiety gets the best of me, well since being out of work i haven't done anything crazy with it, early this week a gust of wind picked her up and put her into the curb, busted the blade tips up, everything else was ok, time to go back and retrace the Radds steps for good measure and simply practice more before getting crazy again

how did you put it, always pushing it, just did it, blade split, left cyclic servo gears gone, left skid bent slightly, flybar, shatf etc... all ok, was in FF 'bout 10' AGL over controlled turning around and nosed into the pavement, was flying naked so no can damage, but the xtreme head button is taking a beating one set of blades left, so i'll be grounded 'til i replace the servo and get some more blades instocki'm having too much fun with this little heli, buzzing around in the front yard and the street, the tail is holding just fine with the chenise weights, man i wish i were better at thislol

yes, it's true the fear factor is less on those little machines
I want to use mine to get some steady inverted flight (new blades expected)
I crashed twice in a week while doing basic loops
I haven't been using a sim at all yet, and I believe my pitch curve was to steep for proper cyclic control.

I used to roll and flip with my logo14 though, taking advantage of speed and weight...dynamic flight

I've also noticed that helis and women don't mix so well; I am not saying you should choose one or the other; just separate them. Women don't like them because they feel too much attention is diven out of them to our hobby. And that's quite fair

Dunno anyways

Hi

I never push it and because of that am behind the curve. That being said i just love to see things things in the air flying all the inputs that are going on it just amazes me ever time and I relax while flying.

But thats me If you want to grow fast you have to take risks that will cost ya but you will become better faster.

Maybe if I upgrade the whole thing to the color purple I will back off of it and slow down? I dunno. I had it flying sooooo good too right before I broke the seesaw in half.

On another note: Have any of you noticed how little plastic collars hidden away in the head can break and you not know it? At the flybar pivot point there are two small plastic collars that the pivoting screws thread in on each side of the flybar. One of those was broken and I didn't know. Gave me all kinds of fits for quite a while too. Heli was really hard to control, yet nothing obviously wrong.
