Getting rid of the training gear. WHOO HOO!!
Well, I guess I have to loose the training gear. I broke them in the back of my truck. I think I'm about ready anyways.

Yep you no longer need them. Long as you land it soft, like a leaf kissing a pond. And if you get in trouble don't dump the throttle all the way, or you'll be in negative pitch, and if you hit hard it will cause a boom strike. When you get ready for nose in, put the training gear back on, When you get some new ones, and learn nose-in from the ground up, just like tail in. You'll progress faster. I believe. If you try to spin it around to nose in the sky, and get your controls mixed up you'll probably not have time to re correct. As most beginners are afraid to be high enough to correct their mistake. I recommend learning nose in, just like you did tail in, from the ground up. And Learn nose in on the sim first. Get it perfect on the sim before the real heli.

Good job, and good luck.

Thanks for the support and the advice. WILL DO. Actually I'm not afraid to fly high. I just didn't get it on video. Plus the wind got pretty fast above the tree line. Gettin' high (you know what I mean) saved me a couple of time.My heli's a submarine hybred. (I live in Washington)

Yep, you are past ready for no training wheels.
Some like music, but hearing the helicopter is my music. I like to hear whats happening, even for gental flights. Just my opinion.
I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

The music was to cover my daughters goofy narration. The things 11 yr olds will say...

you were looking good without the training gear now you just have to practice landing without crashing and then you will be the man.
excellent job good vid.

and +1 i like the music of the motor

but in my videos the heli is the voice for the music

try using a video editing program instead of a movie maker program
magix is a good one that i use.

Coming a little late... Or, maybe not?

IMHO... the training gear (in vid at least) was a VERY prominent focal point for pitch/roll orientation. Now that thats gone... you've really got to focus on that disc (and fuse) which is not NEAR as visable, and a little trickier than your previous setup.

I only mention it because I noticed in first video how EASY it was to see. Now its gone. I'm sure you can do the math. IF you feel like you watched the gear as a visual cue as to your attitude then you know what Im saying.

Wont be the last, dont sweat yourself. You still made the right move. IMHO the first vid showed that you are ABSOLUTELY ready to ditch them, now you MAY just be dealing with readjustment of how you "connect" with your heli (visually mainly).

HAPPY FLYING!!!!!!!

You should get a piece of plywood to land on man and land tail in closer to you where you can see that the Heli is good and level.

That reminds me of a Phoenix Crash video. Almost identical.

If its fixed don't break it.

That little tip over bent the main shaft?

I've never bent the main shaft on my Blade SR out of all the hard crashes and tip overs I've been through. I guess with a metal head that doesn't give as much, it bends other things. Just a mild tip over will bend my feathering shaft every single time. I can fix that thing so quick now You would think I had gone in to charge my battery and come back out.

Its an amazing illustration of how real Phoenix is isn't it?

You could tell at the end of the video the guy was getting frustrated. LOL!

your not kidding he did the exact same thing.

but i think the grass might have just been to tall and his shafts bent so easily because most likely he is still using the clone shafts he needs to start using align shafts

when you crash you learn and if you dont crash you learn

Actually, I wasn't trying to land. I just got too low and lost my orientation a bit. The air was thick that day and humid. Plus removing the gear made a big differance in how she flew. As for my phoenix, the tx I have for it is a bit weird. It seems to have a dead spot just below mid stick, even though tx settings say there's not. So I don't use it too much.My heli's a submarine hybred. (I live in Washington)
