but yes Sim is main tool to pilots real and R/C these days.

it will quickly show you what you are capable of.

Brian, I have said it before and I'll say it again. In fact I'll keep saying it until it gets through that (obviously) thick skull of yours - GET A SIM (I recommend Phoenix) and USE it. It will make the learning curve more fun IMHO. Why are you so damn stubborn on this?

[quote]I guess I need to NOT be perfectly vertical, but yet be angled a bit, but keep it close to that vertical zone[quote]

Brian, you still don't get it. You must be acelerating in that mode or you will loose momentum. Because there is not enough lift in that attidude to support the heli.

Hover in that position and you will find the heli just slides down the slope, so it must be the momentum thing. Once you are not acelerating any more you will slide down the slope.

Remember MANAGE lift AND momentum

Think of this. When a baseball is thrown it is acelerating so it is moving up but when it slows, it is STILL moving but it begins to fall!!! THATS MOMENTUM

Do it higher up so that from your perspective it is vertical and just give it full pitch to keep it up, it will start to fall eventually though. Maybe you need more pitch? The pro's use all the pitch they can get to keep the heli upright in such manuevers.
A lighter heli will also stay up for longer than a heavier heli.
60% of the time, it works every time!

Sounds like Im putting the cart before the horse, as I need to execute this move, coming from another flight pattern. Hmm, I don't think that can happen right now, or I have no idea what to do, as far as coming from 1 manuver with momentum, and setteling into the said, manuver. I'm not that good....

Thanks

Just fly the heli, have fun, and don't be in such a rush to become a 3D champ. It doesn't happen overnight.
Keep practicing, you'll get there.

Brian, no move can stay vertical for any length of time. The best you can hope for is just shy of vertical in either direction (i.e. wall of death or steep hurricane/funnel). Or briefly vertical and then back to a slight bank angle. Or briefly vertical quickly followed by another maneuver (i.e the wall).

As stated it is a constant balance of momentum and lift. Get a SIM and you can test it out risk free.

You guys are correct, the nose definitly needs to be angled a bit, just to stay there. I'm able to get a quarter turn, "away", in this position before I loose it on the sim. It's hard to keep upright, for sure...

There is a Video that JAGNZ posted, and the guy flying does the manuver at about 1:20 seconds, to 1:30 seconds in the video. That is what I want to execute right there."I just don't Listen" "

Those are just mini-Rainbows or elongated tick-toc's with hesitations at 0 deg pitch. They are easier than they look. I would start with traveling flips, they are easiest of all. You start with a flip and then hold pitch a tad longer in the vertical orientation. From these maneuvers come the traveling tick-toc's which look awesome IMHO....

I think they look Beautiful, and adding the back flip at the end is awesome too. So smoooooth!!

Pilot where out there flying there heli's long before there where simulators and they got by just fine, so it can be done. There no need to keep beating poor Brian to death with it.

Lonewolf... I'd like to propose a challenge for you, Compose a post of more then one sentence that doesn't contain the words Sim or Simulator. I just bet you can do it if you put you mind to it.
If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

Yup....thats just a rainbow (with some nice flare.) One of my favorite moves. And is one of the easiest. For me, the key was learning inverted orientations. That will allow you to correct the heli through the move (and not just hammer it and hope for the best.) I started with tic-tocs and slowly just started working them into rainbows.T-Rex 450 SE V2 , T-Rex 600 NSP, Stryker F27 C....Yea, it's a plank.

I for one dont understand why Brian wants to do this without the use of a simulator, but, its not mandatory to use one either. Like it has been said, many, many times before, they were doing it without sims before this, and they did just fine, although, it takes on the average, with the use of a sim, sometimes hundreds of flights doing the same stick movements, before your "muscle memory" has time to kick in and take over during a single move like the one he is describing here. And, dont kid yourself, its all about muscle memory. If you have to take time to think about a move, its too late.
So what if it takes 3 months to convert shear terror, and untold hours of picking other pilot's brains about, "how do you guys do a certain move?" and parts, parts, parts, into muscle memory. Look at the money he is saving on NOT waisting it on a sim.
I applaud him for his willpower to resist conforming to the pressure's of being forced to use one of this hobbies most outstanding achievements in training, the simulator. Yeah, they did it without one back in "the day", but, I consider the fact that we have a simulator to use, a "fast track" to learning muscle memory at a much faster pace than in the past. RC pilots are performing much harder moves than 'back in the day" and if your wanting to move into 3D maneuvers, It will be a long, and expensive road ahead without some sort of help in speeding up the process a little. just my opinion though...

Well Thanks for the kind words.

I am excelling much faster in flight, then the normal beginner, and I also feel very natural flying to. I find this to be true, as I read here on rr, that so many beginners struggle for a long time, and most give up.

Like I told you boys in the begining, Im a Heavy Equipment Operator of 16 years(Muscle Memory). I operate Road graders and finish bull dozers, that cut 1/8, 1/4, and 1/2 Inch layers of hard pack, and soft pack dirt, out of mother earth, for concrete roads. I cut in cross slopes(the crown and inverts of american roadways, and parking lots) as well.

What all this means is, I have a very excellent skill with my hands(and the seat of my ass), and this trasitions over to Helicopters like you would'nt believe.

Ask Axeclint what he thinks of my flying skills(he is a christian boy, he won't lie), at just over 200 flights, he will tell you the truth.(I amaze myself a hec k of alot more, when I fly alone for somreason though, it's weird)

Again, Thanks for the kind words though....

SORRY FOR THE SUPER RANT BUT FOR FVCK$ SAKE GET A DAMN SIMULATOR AND QUIT MAKING NEW TOPICS IN MAIN DISCUSSION SAYING OO LOOK WHAT I CAN DO YOU CANT DO @#$%@#$ NOTHING YOU WILL IMPRESS NOONE AT A CLUB SO STOP POSTING USELESS MOVES YORU TRYING IN MAIN DISCUSSION THIS ISNT THE FIRST TIME EITHER end rant whew this will prolly get tagged rather fast but i cant put up with his stubbornness anymore and this post will hopefully save him some money the end Velocity 50 "99.9999999999999% of an atom is empty space." also 01001000 01001001
