well, finally flipped the switch and did some intentional autorotations. two good ones last sat, busted a blade on the third, put some different blades on (was flying rotortech 515, now align 550) and did 4 or 5 today. the align blades are about 50% heavier than the rotor techs, and auto much, much nicer.

Congratulations on that! Doing the auto could be an addiction.

Congrats man!! and they are addicting! This was my second full summer doing autos and i closed out the summer with an inverted auto It was absolutely amazing!! Welcome to the club man, you will find that there are not a lot of people that do autos for fun..

I finish every flight with an auto and do them on the sim regularly.

no babe i swear i sold my other heli to buy this one :)

Congrad's bro ..I did my first 2 intentional one's a few month's ago because my buddy kept poking at me about it..Just a few day's ago I said to hell with it and did a bunch more and I honestly don't like doing auto's lol .Not that im scared but I don't wanna crash my only set of main's..This was my 3rd and 4th time doing them just to do them .Just fast forward/start the video at 3:25,sloppy but I can do them ..

Watch at YouTube

Maybe one day i'll try a inverted roll out ..

I run out of fuel enough to get my practice in.lol...

Grats. It's a pretty big hurdle.
I never tried with a 550 and never got very good with a 500.
The 600 was a lot easier.

I don't think it even counts as a skill with my 700

Auto's have always been tough for me. I can do them but I just don't like to do them. It's a mental thing I guess. I do practice them every now and then and have had to do a couple forced auto's that ended well.
