first time ever doing hurricanes
Well... I practiced on the sim for a while and decided to start trying hurricanes at the field. Today was my first day really pushing to learn this maneuver so dont be too critical! Not sure why I had such a tail problem with the heli today either, it's always been rock solid. I'm thinking the extreme heat is causing the belt to stretch and loosen up. Enjoy the video and please any tips will help me get better!!!

good job on your first Hurricanes. There not easy to do on a 450 even with a locked in FBL system. Saw how your tail would blow out if it was not directly inline with the turn. looks like you will need to tune the tail setings a bit. the biggest problem I had with my Trex450pro was the tail, only after watching smacktalk did I figure out that the best upgrades to a 450 - 500 class bird would be the tail gyro/servo and blades. Any fast backwards flight will test how well your tail gain is setup. Keep up the great work. test your gain settings with fast funnels, fast side ways flight or even full collective climb outs, any wag during those manuvers will cause problems somtimes with backwards hurricanes. I could never get the hang of inverted backwards hurricanes on my 450, it was not till I got my Trex600 that I felt more in control. awesome job with your mini protos, just look out for those trees!

I have had the gain set up just about perfect when I first built the heli. I could fly as fast as I could sideways with no issue, no issues climbing out inverted or upright. fast pirouettes stopping with no bounce back. I just took the heli apart since I won't fly it again before my stretch kit arrives and was going through the entire thing. I have never crashed it, but sure enough this Alabama heat is really softening the belt. I will be sure to adjust the tension a little when I put the stretch kit on. Also going to take a look at different tail servos. I am currently using an Align DS520.

Thanks for the advice, I will do some more testing on it next time I fly. Maybe go through the Beastx programming again.

ah... Seldred was flying not me (RM3). I did have a mental block on new things I was tring and asked a friend to watch my hands to diagnose a weird flight issue once, turned out the heli setup was perfect, my thumbs were "glitching", I was the problem. Soon Seldred youll figure out that the manuevers are going great in the real world then you'll have problems with the sim. My funnels are great in real life but suck on the sim... But again just keep the idea in your head that if your heart ain't pounding out at the field, your not learing anything new. keep up the great flight!showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Best thing for me was a grip flip on the tail. I could blow out the tail on my 450 Pro at will in backwards flight. Flipping the grips gave it the correct geometry.
The problem with the pro is when they put the gears in for TT, they reduced the amount of throw available in the counter torque direction with the stock setup. If you flip the grips you get more throw counter torque and less with torque. Then you can abuse at will.

Exactly

JR-Ric and I made a game out of it. Pull into a big skids in hurricane. Just blip full negative and watch it blow out 180 degrees. Fly it nose first for a bit, then flip the tail around again.

Grip flip spoiled all the fun!!!

But a thing of beauty is the T450 Pro with a TotalG. We took my airframe and put a TotalG on it up at Spring Fling in Fredericksburg. Essentially a test platform while I worked out a couple kinks in my Rave 450 4s setup. With the flipped grips, and the fact that I was not "worried" about tossing the 450, it was amazing.Jim Senicka

Thats the funnest flying to me. Enough to speed your heart up a little, but not enough to make your knees shake haha. Just fly it and try stuff thats outside your comfort zone and know the heli is solid, but if you crash then make it look good!

Wow, good job! I hope to move up to your level in the near future. I'm impressed you did it with a 450, in my experience I start on the bigger stuff and work down to the 450.

Thanks! I perfected the maneuver on the sim before I ever tried it in real life. Plus I figured the 450 will be a lot cheaper to fix when I dumb thumb it than my furion 6! haha
