Jandis-
Kudo's on the flying the full scale Heli's...
Currently I am still (very slowly) collecting my hours.

Now seeing your on a R/C Helicopter website-
Here is your quote modified back at you:
"Flying a R/C Helicopter is an experience you'll never forget"

Ever try flying a Nitro R/C Heli?
Flying full scale versus holding a transmitter is two separate worlds!

to those asking questions
HELIFAT Would it be wrong to say both! The only way I get up in the air is through students. Im a novice at RC, I have been wanting to do it ever since I was learning to fly fullscale but for some reason all my money kept going into fullscale education......I dont know why.....hmmmm

Pull-In-Pitch Its a different world flying rc... you have to invert everything opposite when it is flying towards you....it not easy! I dont know how some of you are so good its amazing to me!

Krashtagain I'll check my email. thanks!

30636086 The training ones that I specifically fly can go anywhere from 12000-15000 ft. Depending on the air density and temperature. You would be stupid to fly that high as you have no power and would be putting yourself into JET traffic. We generally fly below airplanes at around 500 feet above the ground.

Depending what helicopter you fly depends how far they go. The one I teach out of specifically is 30 gallons and burns 10 gallons per hour .. so three hours... we fly about 90 mph so I would say 240miles before filling up again... Helicopters are used more for close to home operations. fires ,police,ems. etc.
mental illness is an ability

scott s. For us to go up would be around 199.00. its worth every penny

I refer each of my students to this site. You will rarely find a helicopter pilot that does not fly both.

It was an "inside joke" that's some of the questions we get every time we flight the RC ones, But I want to thank you for taking the time and answering the questions. I haven't flight a full scale but have flight in them (back in my military days). But once again thanks for taking the time and answering.

I had a guy kinda freak me out once!(about year 1 1/2 ago) He drove by and turned around; ran to me and started asking(kinda yelling)questions; like "how you do that? how that helicopter goes backwards? and the Hold up; did you just flip it upside down?"

He asked me to bring it down (to which I was doing already cause he was freaking me out) to see it up close. Once in the ground and I had a chance to give him my full attention he turn out to be a real helicopter pilot! So I guess he was like you said a helicopter junkie; because he asked all sort of questions and asked me where I could go get one! It was kinda weird but cool at the same time!

But on a serious note. Is there a specific reason why is that the helicopter use for training? Because all the places that I have seen they use that model(or type)

Why the R44? Well ,no one wants you to learn to fly in a turbine heli any more (apart from the armed forces!) OK they cost more, but they have power to spare and are not as finiky to the student as an R22.

Now, the R44 is designed to carry 4 people. Thus, with only a student and an instructor, the power/weight is a lot better than an R22, plus there's higher inertia in the rotor system, so it's a bit more user friendly in those (hopefully rare) loss of power situations!

If I ever decide to go for some lessons, I'll will have to settle for the 44 as a best option(never a 22) and THEN have to shell out even more for a damn turbine conversion...
