well, maybe the altitude difference between Northern and Southern Ohio makes it harder to go inverted in Southern Ohio...or maybe its easier closer to the North Pole? Chris. AMA 497715 IRCHA 3351

If you can do it all day long on the sim and your heli is setup correctly all you have to do is imagine your flying the sim when you try it. Empty your head, think only "im on the sim".60% of the time, it works every time!

Empty your head,
Seriously? If that was all there was to it, I'd have done it the day I picked up my first heli! :P
If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

I'm repeating my comment from Flying Bryan's inverted thread. This has saved me multiple times.

BAILOUT ... BAILOUT ... BAILOUT

You need to have a BAILOUT PLAN, and practive the BAILOUT first.

Decide how you are going to go inverted, and more importantly decide up front how you will leave inverted ... this is your BAILOUT!

Then, practice putting the entry and bailout together, with only a slight pause inverted. Practice and become really good at ... the Bailout! Make it second nature.

Once you are good at the bailout, then start extending the inverted segment. At the first sign of confusion/dis-orientation, do the bailout, and you and the heli will always be safe.

For example ONLY, for tail-in inverted, I like to start tail-in upright, and roll to inverted. My bailout is to climb for a little while(pull on the pitch stick, and then do a half loop (pull on the elevator stick). I practiced those up high (roll, pause, climb, loop). As I brought them lower and held them longer, I added one more IMPORTANT step to MY bailout ... climb, rotate the tail 45 degrees away from the flightline, and then half-loop.

Others will probably suggest that my bailout is too complicated, and that it is safer to roll out. I wouldn't disagree.

I am NOT necessarily recommending MY bailout. If I started over, I might do it differently. I am highly recommending that your have A bailout and PRACTICE IT FIRST.

... Just my strongly held opinion ...

Alrighty! Just got home from the field. Flew four flights!

First flight I did a loop! First loop ever and flew around probably did a couple more loops and tried a roll. Hovering autorotation to end the flight.

I had to crank up my headspeed. I was running about 1620 (estimated with calculation for my Spektrum 7000R (revmax) governor...and that helicopter did not sound happy flying around. I pushed my Normal mode to 1690 (was around 1550) and my ST-1/ST-2 up to around 1900 I think. I leaned the High needle too, but ended up richening it back up and then adding a few more clicks to richen it up more. Never lost my exhaust trail, but the engine was HOT after each flight.

Did some loops with a pause at the top to hold it inverted. I also did some nose-in and some side-on hovering (upright). and each landing was a hovering autorotation.

You have to understand, I have just been flying around, mostly hovering around, and was happy at 1620 RPM for a while...but now that I am moving around more I just needed to get that RPM up there. I may need to get it up even higher.

Thanks for the tips and encouragement guys! I think I took a few steps up the ladder today.

Oh, and it was VERY windy but around 80 degrees here in the cleveland area, that must be a high temperature record.

Ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for Radio Control Helicoptering.
