Hi everybody i have read lots of storys about plp crashing there heli's on 1st flights for whatever reason, some dumb mistakes some not so dumb, so i'd given a lot of thought as to how we could eliminate those crashs not to mention the stress involved and at the same time give us a way to safely make adjustment to trim out a heli and do flight tests indoors(only hovering flight), i think i'm on to a solution that unlike heli trainers of the past that attach directly to the heli (heli will never fly the same as without) when the heli is hovering nothing is touching the heli but if something go's wrong it will control the heli and not let anything bad happen, besides that it's also great for noob hover practice to gain confidence, it lets the heli piro freely and when hovering the heli is "floating" within the boundry clamps, i think something like this could really save a lot of people money and heartache not to mention make first flights much safer and who doesn't want that ! i believe that it could be scailed up or down as the heli size changes, i know it's made my first flights completely uneventful sence i made it !

now remember this is in a very rough prototype form for testing the idea and it totally works !!!

This is a Run Ryder Exclusive and you've seen it here first !!!!

I'm probably putting a hex on myself but I have never crashed on a maiden flight.

Kind of like a heavier version of the old "ball and stick" trainer gear, right?

Lets see a video of you hovering with your setup. Looks really close so any movement and your back down. But it looks like it might work if your already fairly skilled and just test a new setup.

Yep, I have had the tail go wild on a wrong or faulty setup. Fortunatly never crashed. But your setup would be useful to work out tail hold problems.

I have had at least 7 crashes from having the V-bar set up incorrectly. This was with V3.16, so my experience does not apply as much today.

nope
when i make adjustments i always unplug the motor and i double check as much as i can
then when i go to fly i spool up and check then hover for a few and check before i boogie.

and throttle hold is my best friend lol'

but two years ago when i was a new pilot i made this .

Watch at YouTube

i still have it out in the garage and it goes up and down.

The only problem I see with this thing is it actually robust enough to handle the worst case scenario melt down of your setup? Pun not intended.

I'm guilty of wadding up a FB'ed setup from not checking for proper pitch movement through collective. I had the seesaw cage upside down, so it spooled up fine. As soon as I gave it cyclic input, it balled up. Violently enough that I don't think your device would have saved it.

Pretty neat that you found a use for the HAM radio as a weight to hold down your heli.

With all those knobs and buttons, it must tricky to set up.

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

well like i said nothing what so ever extra attaches to the heli so it flys exactly as it normally would, now granted it can only go up & down and side to side three to four inches but with that three to four inches i can completely setup my heli indoors so the first time i fly it for real it's completely trimmed for hands off hover in both the normal bank and self level bank with no drift between the two ! (Skookum SK-720 onboard) and i know for a fact it's not going to do anything crazy or unexpected like for example some kind of cyclic or tail death wag !

you don't need to be a pro or a noob to to use it either, very eazy to use and it can tell you alot about the condition of your heli with safety and comfort inside your house !

Can't beat that with a stick !!!

EDIT a video soon to follow......
