When your helicopter tracks perfectly stable through fast forward or backward maneuvers with no odd tendencies.

Like a Heinsleit TDR - on the sim, anyways. Almost like it flies too good.

Flying on Rails: Heli stays on course and feels as if its flying on a invisible track. Little to no input needed to keep its course and is effortless.

A properly setup machine will "fly on rails" especially well setup FBL setups....

It comes from cars that "drive like they are on rails" - handle well, turn well, etc.

That's funny, I thought it came from trains, because...well, they drive on rails!

Thats pretty much my interpretation..
I always described it as, once you make an input. The heli stays in that attitude until another input is made. No ballooning or dipping.

Walk on water long enough, eventually you will get your feet wet.

"FLYING ON RAILS" means ....... that it flies like a Robbe Futura SE.

The term is probably stolen from a term that describes a high performance car that can turn at high speeds, a car that "corners like it's on rails".

In the case of the helicopter, it means what is stated above.

Unless you see rails as two dimensional like a train track. In that case a helicopter that "flies like it's on rails" is a helicopter unable to 3D. LOL.

I believe it referred to my Raptor 90SE with a 5 cell 4200 NiMH pack. Weighed as much as a small locomotive, and absolutely ignored the wind
