XLV Aerobatics
Anyone out there ever seen or taken an XLV into a loop or roll ?
Question came up over the weekend at a fly- in... Looks like you MIGHT get enough speed out of a dive to get it around in a roll...But looks like a big expensive maybe..
Those 1150's look like they could flap down into the boom..

Lets hear from you

I love flying my XLV. It's a lot of fun, but, I wouldn't try to loop or role it. Stall turns are about as far as it goes. It's just not designed for aerobatics.Don't Panic

Thats right, especially with a 899 head speed, and that rotor disc. It would be an expensive crash,<G>

Wayne,
Ask Wayne M if he thinks your 47 could take a trip upside down without the blades coming off. LOL
We just need some seriously stiffer blades. Wouldn't the force upside to the helihead be the same inverted ? Or would it be the transition...

Joe, the next greatest thing.. GIANT 3D Helis with 50cc motors.....

I don't think the main shaft would be able to handle it. I can see it now, move the stick enough to get it to make it around a loop or roll and the main shaft folds over. I will admit, I would like to whiteness one trying it from behind the Myth Busters blast shield!Don't Panic

I'm too happy flying my 47 to think about doind anything but stall turns with it. When i want to go upside down I drag out the Sectra g and get it out of my system,which usually takes about one tank full !!

I think the Space Shuttle has a better chance to do the loop than the XLV.
