BTW Mitch that Neu motor is 4000kv not 4400kv. The model number is Neu-012-030-4000 and they're unbelievable. As I said earlier my flying bud has one and it's a 'tank'. It has a 2mm shaft so you cannot bend it easily and cooling holes on both ends of the can. You will have to slightly enlarge the existing hole in the 3030 or 3020 prop before you press it on. Most guys mount it as a 'pusher' but, you know me, I turn the stock motor mount upside down and install it as a 'puller' so the motor stays cool. My buddy's is 'pushing air' and he has never had a problem with his overheating though. Can't wait to see a photo of your custom Blade with that motor.

Does piroflipping on the sim count? Har har. I actually have done a couple in real life with my 450 and 500 but the weather's been too crappy to practice.

I'll be getting that proton sooooon. Then I'll be able to post a pic of the actual ultimate blade! Yes, a helicopter that, ounce for ounce, costs roughly the same as enriched uranium.

There are 5 guys in our little group, three of which are quite sensible and fly in decent conditions. But me and Ken go out every single weekend regardless of the conditions and what ever happens--happens ! Probably the hardest part is keeping the fingers warm, we tried gloves but you can't really feel the sticks.

Well no snow here...I crashed mine in this video, flipped it and then it spiraled down inverted.

so what's the best gyro to go with the Neu Proton 12x30 4000KV motor?

The tried and tested gyro that most of us use is the Futaba GY401. Although older technology and kinda heavy it's the gyro of choice for the these models. Nice quality video Terrance. What are you planning to use for the main motor with the Neu on the tail?

Nice video terence, you did a Great job on the inverted hover training rig, one of the few I have seen that actually work as intended !!

Bob, really glad to know the 401 work for you guys. This confirms my perception that the Futaba 'true AVCS' is most suitable for motorized tail-no temperature drift issues and solid bearing-lock. I have been running 240s on motorized tails and they work very well except for their super-low piro rates.
For the main, I'm thinking of staying put with the ARC 4600kv inrunner that I bought from liteflightrc. It's light at 29g and has plenty of power but runs pretty hot. A few weeks ago, I was eyeing on the small outrunner from the Scorpion Series, but these scorpions do feed on amps a lot and I'm not that keen to trade flight time for power yet.

Thanks Doug, that training rig actually messed up my brain, I forgot how to hover nose-in upright after 10 nights of practicing inverted nose-in with that. Fortunately for me, I restored my old self after about 4 hrs of re-learning nose-in on the sim. After that incident, I would throw in a few Sim flights in between the inverted Rig sessions just to be safe.

I didn't really master inverted because my wife found that rig an eye-sore and threw it away before the Christmas guests visiting our home.
I hope to do inverted like you did in your CP videos. That is so cool because that's what differentiates our hobbygrade choppers from the 3-channel choppers in Toys-r-us, for those ever-inquisitive onlookers.

I'd stick with the inrunner for the main. If you don't like the motor that you have look into the Neu 'Neutron' series. Set the 'limit' to full on which is 140 and then delay to full on too; 100 on the GY401. Good luck Terrance!

Yeah, they always say---I didn't know a heli could do that !!! after they ask how high can it go

Terence, IMO the most important part of inverted , espescially when first learning is the "bail-out" you should have a concrete idea of how to flip or roll out of inverted and get to a comfortable orientation as soon as possible then relax a little.

What I did was pick an inverted orientation-- either tail-in or nose-in and stick with one only for a while. I picked tail-in and would bring the heli low on the SIM and move the heli left right forward and back to a single point, don't just hover in one spot because it won't teach you to control the real heli when it drifts---the real heli always drifts more than a SIM heli in my experience.

Then when it came time the try it for real I would be at least 60 feet high and flip it backwards and count the seconds I could hold it inverted without panic. At first it was 2 seconds, then 5, then 10 and so on. Once you can do it for a minute, it is just a matter of bringing closer to the ground I used to tell myself while inverted-----Throttle DOWN is heli UP----- very important, if you forget for a second-----SMASH OH yeah, make sure you are in "idle-up" before attempting

That inverted training gear is pretty cool!!

The CP Pro must be a great little heli. This is a big thread.

Thanks Doug, I recently learned one bail-out manuevere so far, that's from flipping nose-in inverted to tail-in upright with fwd elevator. I can only do 2secs of inverted when it's up there, I think i need to relax a little, and like you said, do the counting. It's a lot harder in real life than on the sim. With the real Heli, everything seems to be in fast-motion and my mind would sometimes blank out. I'm gonna try the sim again, following your advice(now that my inverted training Rig's gone)
