Interesting.... I've auto'd as passenger many times in a huey when in the service as a mechanic. It was much smoother than what he did.

Great video man, thanks!

Really Cool video. Thank you for posting it...

Ok, I have to ask this question... I got the impression that there was no gyro controlling the yaw. Is that the case, or do you think it was disabled for training purposes?

I also thought that the auto was a little "wild" too, perhaps for dramatic effect? I would think you would go through a set of skids a week if using the same heli for practice.

If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

As rc heli pilots, we are aware that the tail rotor is used to maintain yaw control and counteract the torque effect. As far as a gyro in a real helicopter, I do not know the answer to that. However, just as our main rotor blades act as a gyro, my presumption would be the same for a full-size helicraft.

What about this auto!

Getting your pilots license can take as long as 6 weeks
Wow, I thought it took a lot longer then that. I'm sure I heard somewhere that it cost $50 or $60,000 bucks to get your heli license, that's a lot of money for 6 weeks.

I don't believe it's that expensive.

The gyro in a real helicopter is the pilots feet and head. It's much easier to control the yaw when you aren't doing wild maneuvers like 3D and pumping and changing the collective (rapid torque/yaw changes).

That is, of course, if your helicopter doesn't have an auto-pilot. Many do. Many newer helicopters even have "auto-hover" capabilities!

Stupidity can be cured. Ignorance is for life!

I wasn't to far off. I doubt the wife would go for it, letting me fund the RC heli hobby is probably as far as she will go (and she hates doing that ).

Some information about getting a private pilot certification

The Initial Private Pilot Certification will require a minimum of 40 hrs. of aeronautical experience. This is split as such:

A. Dual: 20 hrs. in a helicopter on the Private Pilot areas of operations that includes at least --
(1) 3hrs. of cross-country training
(2) 3 hrs. night training that includes at least --
a. 1 cross-country flight of over 50 nm total distance, and
b. 10 takeoffs and 10 landings with each involving a flight in the traffic pattern
(3) 3 hrs. of flight training in preparation for the practical test within 60 days prior to the practical test

B. Solo : 10 hrs. on the Private Pilot areas of operations that include at least --
(1) 1 solo cross-country flight of at least 75 nm total distance with 3 points and one segment of at least 25 nm between takeoff and landing, and
(2) 3 takeoffs and 3 landings at an airport with an operating control tower

The ground lesson needed is 35 hrs.

This is the minimum requirement hours, but almost everybody take more that 40 hours, the average is 50 or more.

The total price for the Private Pilot certificate using an r22 is around $12000 to $15000 plus books, written test, and your checkride

You can download the book from the FAA website that is used for the private pilot certification. This is part of the ground school material

http://www.faa.gov/library/manuals/...a-h-8083-21.pdf

It is a good book for the principles of helicopters as well as gyrocopters

That wasn't that wild of an auto, it's just that 407s auto best with a little wind to help out, 10 knots makes it easy. He didn't have any wind, so he had a little ground run.

The skids used for practice sometimes have extra metal on the bottom to prevent undue wear, called "skid shoes."

yep---normal, good looking auto.

I miss doing them in the 206 ...power recovery autos in the blackhawk just ain't near as good.

and, no - there is no "gyro" per se, that controls the tail rotor on a helicopter like that. there is a mixing unit that through physical bellcranks and pushrods automatically HELPS with managing the tail rotor ---but it's not like- feet on the floor- and it will hover without yawing- not even close.

Now the Blackhawk---that's a different story (NO pedal input required to hover, unless you want to change your heading.)

Dropping Tones!
